In "Green Lantern: Beware My Power," when a Power Ring is bestowed upon Marine John Stewart, it leads him on a life-changing mission. With Justice League member Green Arrow and Thanagarian Hawkgirl by his side, Stewart is thrown into a complicated galactic war with shocking origins and catastrophic consequences, It's a trial by fire for the inexperienced Lantern as he battles deadly enemies like Stinestro––but a much darker secret will be the true test of this Green Lantern's strength. (Gary Reber)

Special features include the featurette "John Stewart: The Power And The Glory" (HD 31:02), two "The Black Knight" cartoons and a Movies Anywhere digital copy.

The 1.78.1 2160p HEVC/H.265 Ultra HD Dolby Vision/HDR10 picture, reviewed on a Sony Bravia Z9D 4K Ultra HD HDR display, was animated digitally and sourced from a 2K master Digital Intermediate format. The picture exhibits essentially line-drawn animation and color fill. The picture is sharp and clear throughout. Color fidelity is excellent with warm and rich hues that are nicely saturated. HDR contrast is excellent with deep, solid blacks, revealing shadows and nicely illuminated white levels. Resolution also is excellent. This is a solid presentation with brilliant colors and visual dynamics. (Gary Reber)

The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1-channel soundtrack is nicely dynamic sounding with an active orchestral score that is dimensional with an aggressive surround presence. Sound effects are strong and dynamic. Discrete effects are usually that of weaponry and explosions. Atmospherics are subtle. ADR dialogue is a bit forward and lacks spatial integration. Overall, this is an energetic and capable soundtrack though dialogue could have been better integrated. (Gary Reber)
