Green Lantern: First Flight

Title: Green Lantern: First Flight
Year: 2009 (direct-to-video)
Director: Lauren Montgomery
Writer: Alan Burnett
Starring: Christopher Meloni, Victor Garber
Music: Robert J. Kral
Length: 77 minutes
Synopsis: a human joins the Green Lanterns, and saves them from a badguy with a yellow lantern
How I saw it: on video (rended from Netflix), yesterday
Subjective Rating: 6/10 (Okay).
Objective Rating: 3/10 (gets points for pacing, acting and subjective rating) c. 1.7/4 (Eh).

Kind of dull. The plot lacks any creativity whatsoever. Apart from a few brief bits where they gratuitously take advantage of their PG-13 rating, there isn’t anything here that we haven’t seen (done better) a million times in cartoons on TV.

    We agree! It was dull and underwhelming.

    It was not Burnett’s finest writing achievement. Despite the stellar voice cast, it was disappointing.

    Here is our take on it with lots of pics and a few bits if wit if you are interested:
