Green Lantern is definitely one of the members of the Justice League that doesn’t get a lot of time on his own when it comes to movies. I saw Green Lantern: Emerald Knights on HBO Max and decided to give it a watch. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect from this one.
The Green Lantern Corps are warned that the titan Krona may soon bring havoc upon the universe. He’s been stopped in the past, but even the Green Lantern Corps united at once takes him very very seriously.
During this chaos, Hal Jordan is mentoring the new recruit Arisia Rrab. At this point in the story, he’s been in the Green Lantern Corps long enough to know most of the history. Not just about the current heroes but even the very first Green Lantern.
She soon learns of Laira, a former princess on a warlike planet who had to battle her own father. Then there’s the story of the Green Lantern whose ring went to Hal Jordan. Probably the most interesting one of them all is about the largest Green Lantern in history.
I was a little surprised by Green Lantern: Emerald Knights as it starts off strong but dips into boredom every now and then. While there is a central story, the tales that he tells the new recruit distract you heavily from it. It’s not the greatest tale featuring Green Lantern, but far from the worst too.
