Zack Snyder Rebel Moon Reactions: 'So Disappointing'

The first reactions to Zack Snyder’s epic sci-fi movie, Rebel Moon, are in and they are mixed with claims the film is “so disappointing.”

Rebel Moon is Snyder’s answer to Star Wars and follows Sofia Boutella’s character, Kora, a young woman with a mysterious past who seeks out warriors from neighboring planets to help them take a stand against the tyrannical Regent Balisarius (Fra Fee) and his cruel emissary, Admiral Noble (Ed Skrein).

Snyder has big plans for his Rebel Moon universe which include Part 2 getting released next year, a prequel comic book series in the works, and games.

What are the reactions?

Regarding the reactions, the claims Rebel Moon is so disappointing comes from CBM‘s Mark Cassidy aka RorMachine.

“I wish I could say that I loved or even liked Rebel Moon, but after a promising first act, it launches itself off a cliff. Zack Snyder is more concerned with ‘cool’ action scenes than establishing and ensuring we’re invested in his characters,” tweeted Cassidy, adding, “Yes, it’s a Part 1, but it still needs to stand as its own movie, and it most certainly does not. So disappointing.”

Cassidy continued, “There’s some good stuff. It’s as visually impressive as anything Snyder has done, and Sofia Boutella is a strong lead. The robot seems sound. The villain is a moustache twirling cartoon that, for some baffling reason, is given more screen time than most of the heroes.”

Twitter user James Lister also offers it’s not perfect.

“I’ve seen Rebel Moon and it is a visually awesome and epically ambitious ride. While not perfect, this first part will definitely leave you wanting more. Bring on PART TWO!” he tweeted.

When asked if general audiences will enjoy the movie, Lister replied, “Hard to tell, honestly! I’m a big lover of his movies personally, but I’ll be intrigued to see what people think!” He added, “If you like action, sci-fi, and that good ole’ Snyder touch, then yep! You’ll have a blast!”
