Ordinary viewers received the film somewhat better, although it still cannot boast of any particularly high ratings on film websites. The main complaints about “Rebel Moon” were related to its script, which was not particularly original and was a compilation of plot elements from such films as “Star Wars” and “Seven Samurai”. On the plus side, Snyder’s films were mostly praised for their visuals and action scenes.

What the second part will be about

The second part of “Rebel Moon” will be dedicated to the battle between the rebel group and the army of the galactic empire.
