If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Green Lantern Emerald Knights is a new entry in the acclaimed DC-WB animated movie series. The movie is an anthology consisting of six stories (five separate and a sixth one weaving all the movie together).
I won't look at all stories separately since I pretty lazy and don't want to draw this out for long. The overarching story that ties the movie together is about an ancient adversary of the core coming back and Arisia - a new recruit to the corps- hearing stories about some of the members of the corps from Hal Jordan (the main character in the upcoming movie and the center of the Green Lantern comics).
Hal tells Arisia about the first green lantern, Kilowowgs training and beckoming the alien we all know (and by "all" I mean those who actually clicked on this review). Hal also tells Arisia the story of Laira, Mogo, and Abin Sur. Since there are six stories here, the pace of the movie is one of it's strong points. There wasn't a single second while watching this, that I felt bored. There always was either a coll action scene taking place, or a good character moment (NOTE: I read Green Lantern and am a fan of the characters so I don't know how the previous point will fare for none-comic fans), or both at the same time.
Overall this is one of DC's best animated efforts. With solid voice acting (the best one by far Nathan Fillion as Hal Jordan) , great animation, engaging plots and some nice character moments here and there, Emerald Knights is highly entertaining and deserves to be given a fair chance. The movie is only 83 minutes long so it won't take away much of your time to check it out.
