As is their custom, Ed Liu and Maxie Zeus team up to review the latest Warner Premiere/DC direct-to-video, Green Lantern: Emerald Knights.

Ed: “Green Lantern: Emerald Knights is a slight but entertaining anthology film intended to capitalize on the upcoming live-action feature film and corresponding PR blitz. It’s packed with a lot of crowd-pleasing sci-fi superhero moments that will make fans of the genre smile, and it’s all executed with enough skill and good humor that I’m willing to overlook the film’s head-scratching moments and structural flaws, which, anyway, will only occur to the viewer after the end credits start to roll.” continue

Maxie: “I’m not sure what the point is of this latest DTV from DC Comics and Warner Bros. Animation, aside from the obvious one: It’s a tie-in to the live-action feature film. If it’s supposed to be a rousing sci-fi adventure it would be better if it came with an actual story. If it is supposed to explore the Green Lantern Corps, it would do better by telling a group story rather than a lot of individual tales. If it is supposed to showcase a lot of action scenes, it would do better if it didn’t feel so much like a demo reel.” continue
