have been a big fan of the Green Lantern Series from the earliest days through Justice League and its recent revival with the more modern reinvention.
The film sticks closely to the latest version with Abin Sur, Sinistro and the Core - the plot is familiar to anyone who has read the latest series Secret Origin (Green Lantern).
This Blu Ray package has 3 discs - with extended versions and a good sprinkling of extras. I watched the 3D version and there are long periods where 3D is not relevant and the plot does sag a bit in the middle when there is a lot of dialogue and not much visual interest.
3D takes over for the spectacular alien landscapes, which look truly stunning and the set-piece battles - where things are hurtling about and we are in the air a lot. Mostly the 3D gives depth and shows you background layers - but there are moments when things come towards you - like when the ring is sent out by Abin Sur to find the next Green Lantern - it feels like the green sphere is coming right at you!
3D also adds to the effect of the Lantern costumes, where you can see light rippling and depth is added. The green 'constructs' also stand out as a concept that is particularly suiited to 3D enhancement. The most prominent 3D was actually in the closing titles - where the designers really played with the effects and matched this with the Dolby 5.1 surround soundtrack, which moved sounds around you, to follow the visuals. The hint of a sequel was also intriguing and may make a better film, beyond the obligatory "origin" backstory.
All in all - not a bad film and a nice addition to the list of 3D Blu Rays, where something is added to the experience. Worth buying and a very high quality transfer.
