OPIS FILMU – We wszechświecie równie olbrzymim, co tajemniczym, od wieków istnieje pewna niezauważalna, lecz potężna siła – obrońcy pokoju i sprawiedliwości, zwani Green Lantern Corps. Jest to grupa wojowników, którzy przysięgli strzec międzygalaktycznego porządku. Każdy z nich nosi pierścień obdarzający go nadzwyczajnymi mocami. Kiedy jednak pojawia się nowy wróg, Parallax, który grozi, że zniszczy układ sił we wszechświecie, losy Green Lantern Corps oraz Ziemi spoczywają w rękachnajmłodszego rekruta, Hala Jordana (Ryan Reynolds), pierwszego człowieka w szeregach organizacji. Jeśli wspierany przez innego pilota – swoją ukochaną z dzieciństwa, Carol Ferris (Blake Lively) – szybko nauczy się panować nad nowymi mocami i odnajdzie w sobie odwagę, by pokonać swe lęki, to być może stanie się nie tylko osobą, bez której pokonanie Parallaxa nie byłoby możliwe, ale także największym wojownikiem Green Lantern.
PLOT – Billions of years ago, beings called the Guardians of the Universe used the green essence of willpower to create an intergalactic police force called the Green Lantern Corps. They divided the universe into 3600 sectors, with one Green Lantern per sector. One such Green Lantern, Abin Sur of Sector 2814, defeated the malevolent being Parallax and imprisoned him in the Lost Sector on the desolate planet Ryut. In the present day, Parallax escapes from his prison after becoming strengthened by an encounter with crash survivors on the planet. Parallax then pursues and nearly kills Abin Sur, who escapes and crash-lands on Earth where he commands his ring to find a worthy successor.
Hal Jordan, a cocky test pilot working at Ferris Aircraft, is chosen by the ring and transported to the crash site, where the dying Abin Sur appoints him a Green Lantern, telling him to take the lantern and speak the oath. At home he says the oath and is later whisked away to the Green Lantern Corps home planet of Oa, where he meets and trains with Tomar-Reand Kilowog and Corps leader Sinestro, who believes he is unfit and fearful. Jordan quits and returns to Earth, keeping the power ring and lantern.
Meanwhile, scientist Hector Hammond is summoned by his father, Senator Robert Hammond, to a secret government facility to perform an autopsy on Abin Sur’s body. A piece of Parallax inside the corpse enters Hammond, giving him telepathic and telekinetic powers, at the cost of his sanity. After discovering that he was chosen for the secret work only due to his father’s influence, Hammond attempts to kill his father by telekinetically sabotaging his helicopter at a party. Jordan saves the senator and the party guests, including his childhood sweetheart Carol Ferris. Later, Hammond successfully kills his father by burning him alive, and Jordan learns of Parallax coming to Earth.
Back on Oa, the Guardians tell Sinestro that Parallax was once one of their own until he desired to control the yellow essence of fear, only to become the embodiment of fear itself. Arguing that the way to fight fear is by fear itself, Sinestro requests that the Guardians forge a ring of the same yellow power, preparing to concede Earth’s destruction to Parallax in order to protect Oa. Jordan appears and tries to convince the Guardians that fear will turn the users evil if its power is used, but they reject his pleas, and he returns to Earth to try to defeat Parallax alone feeling defeated.
Upon returning to Earth, Jordan saves Ferris from Hammond. Parallax arrives, consumes Hammond’s life force, and then wreaks havoc on Coast City. With new-found strength, Jordan lures Parallax away from Earth and toward the Sun, destroying and killing Parallax. He loses consciousness after the battle and falls toward the sun, but is saved by Sinestro, Kilowog, and Tomar-Re. Later the entire Green Lantern Corps congratulates him for his bravery. Sinestro tells Jordan he now bears the responsibility of protecting his sector as a Green Lantern.
In a mid-credits scene, Sinestro steals the yellow ring and places it on his finger, causing his green suit and eyes to change to yellow.
