Brief Synopsis – As the Green Lantern Corps prepare to take on a new threat, old and young recruits tell tales of some of the greatest heroes of the Corps.

Bottom Line – Great look at the history of the Green Lantern Corps because we get to see how much the past and present are connected. The film is able to tell short stories of some of the greatest members of the Green Lantern Corps as their knowledge, wisdom and strengths are passed along generation by generation. As a fan of the comic books, I loved seeing some of the familiar members of the Corps along with some of the more obscure ones. Love the way that they find a way to connect all of these stories together. Recommended!

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Two of the segments are based on the stories of Alan Moore: “Mogo Doesn’t Socialize” and “Tygers”. Only the illustrators, Dave Gibbons and Kevin O’Neil receive screen credit for the original work, as was the case for Gibbons on the screen adaptation of Watchmen. This is because Moore, displeased by earlier adaptations of his stories, now typically refuses to be credited for subsequent ones. (From IMDB)

Rating – Globe Worthy (8/10) (no change from original review)
