Green Lantern: Green Lantern First Flight DVD

Green Lantern: First Flight is an animated, lively, and action-packed origin story about the transformation of test pilot Hal Jordan into a member of an intergalactic society watching over the universe. Flying an experimental jet one day, Hal Jordan encounters a dying alien who is a Green Lantern protector of Earth's sector of the cosmos. The alien's ring, a repository of enormous power granted by a council of elders called the Guardians, zips onto Jordan's finger, but neither the Guardians nor other Green Lanterns are ready to accept him as an unproven member. Complicating things for Hal Jordan is the fact that the Green Lantern tasked with mentoring him, Sinestro, is plotting the destruction of the Guardians with the acquisition of "yellow power," the only force that makes the Green Lanterns' green power useless.

Green Lantern Hal Jordan's resilience and willingness to throw himself in harm's way for the good of everyone gain respect, but his inevitable showdown with ex-Green Lantern Sinestro is an epic fight.

This Green Lantern movie PG-13 feature is a bit bloody, and there are a few swear words, but most of the violence arises from that familiar, shape-shifting light emanating from Jordan's ring. Happily, there is some of the old DC Comics wit in the way his Green Lantern ring shapes its beam into such imaginative weapons as a golf club and a flyswatter. 

I cannot get enough of the great action packed fight sequence between Green Lantern Hal Jordan and Sinestro.  Just in case you want to re-live the moment, here is the short movie clip of Green Lantern First Flight.
