2-3. I'd say it's marginally better than the average DC animated movie in that it specifically designates two characters to develop (Hal Jordan and Manhunter), as well as the way it rightly draws correlations between the boom in alien invasion flicks with racial tensions and the 'red scare'. That being said, the plot, itself, is generally average fare that doesn't leave a lot of room for pacing. But it's still fine.
