PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Reckless test pilot Hal Jordan is granted an alien ring that bestows him with otherworldly powers that inducts him into an intergalactic police force, the Green Lantern Corps.
One of the Green Lanterns, Rot Lop Fan, wears a bell insignia rather than a lantern image on his chest. This is because his world gets almost no sunlight, so they never developed eyesight. Since he has no use for colors and lights, his symbol is an F-Sharp bell, which makes a tone pleasing to his species.
Billions of years ago, a race of immortals harnessed the most powerful force in existence: the emerald energy of willpower. These immortals, the Guardians of the Universe, built a world from where they could watch over all of existence: the planet ...
During the final battle, the planet Neptune is seen in the same general neighborhood as Earth. The "Great Dark Spot" is clearly visible.
The DC Comics logo is shaded green, and contains two comic-book images: a shot of the Green Lantern Jordan, and his equipment (power ring and power battery).
An Extended Cut is available on the Blu-ray release, which runs about 10 minutes longer than the theatrical cut. It restores back the 1993 prologue, especially detailing events leading to Martin Jordan's fatal crash. One more additional scene is restored where Hal and Jason talk longer about the perfect game and asking the boy to remember the feeling of that day.
