  •  Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon Part One received negative reviews from both critics and fans on Rotten Tomatoes and Audience Score
  •  A director’s cut is expected to be released in the summer, but the controversy surrounding the film remains
  • Snyder acknowledges the polarizing response to his movies and believes there is nothing in Rebel Moon that would warrant such strong reactions

Sitting at a “rotten” 21% on Rotten Tomatoes and a 58% Audience Score, both the critics and fans weren’t too thrilled with Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon Part One on Netflix.

It’s known a big director’s cut is coming this summer but that hasn’t stopped the controversy surrounding the film; in my review, I said it was complete trash.

Speaking with Empire Magazine, Zack Snyder responds to the backlash.

What does Zack Snyder say about the Rebel Moon reviews?

Zack is actually no stranger to negative reviews as Batman Vs Superman has a 29% Rotten Tomatoes Score and Sucker Punch has a 22% score.

“I don’t really have a rebuttal to the reviews,” he told Empire about Rebel Moon. “For whatever reason, the reaction to my movies is very polarising, and it always has been.”

Snyder added, “The movie, it doesn’t seem like there’s that much in it that would warrant such visceral responses.”

What is wrong with Rebel Moon?

Without including my whole review, the gist of what is wrong with Rebel Moon, IMO, is the editing, which is simply atrocious and lands at the feet of Snyder for being responsible.

Yeah, the six hour cut can help with development, but how about the parts where the spear goes through the spaceship’s shield that has to be able to withstand objects while flying at light speed in space (or whatever)? Or how about when the spaceship gunner is taken out, it takes out the entire ship? Huh? Maybe what was supposed to happen was the gunner was supposed to take out the ship??? Or could the glass have been weakened first???

It’s stuff like that which makes no sense and makes Rebel Moon a truly awful and frustrating watching experience and makes me question that either Zack Snyder doesn’t give a f’k (about the movie and the audience) or he’s simply incompetent as fk.

Snyder doesn’t know what would warrant the visceral responses? Did he watch the same f’n movie we all did?! Again, does he give a fk?

I’d love for someone to ask Zack about it, and how come no one at Netflix or his producer team doesn’t call him out about it? Are they ALL that f’d up???

Rebel Moon – Part Two: The Scargiver premiers only on Netflix on April 19, 2024.
