Summarized by durumis AI

  • 'Rebel Moon - Part 1: A Child of Fire' is a film that Zack Snyder made with a dream of a Star Wars franchise, released on Netflix.
  • It is an homage to 'Seven Samurai', but it lacks originality and the character introduction is poor, which is a pity.
  • Zack Snyder's signature visuals and action sequences are worth seeing, but the first part has received praise for Lucasfilm's decision being the right one, and the evaluation is expected to change depending on the outcome of the second part, which will be released in April.

The Netflix original film 'Rebel Moon - Part 1: A Child of Fire' has maintained the No. 1 spot on global viewership charts despite criticism from reviewers. The film achieved 2.39 million views in its first week, topping charts in most Netflix-available countries. The film, a space opera directed by Zack Snyder, known for films like '300' and 'Justice League', garnered increased attention.


Snyder initially aimed to develop the film as part of the Star Wars franchise. However, Lucasfilm rejected the proposal, leading to the film becoming a Netflix original franchise.


As such, the film evokes an impression akin to Akira Kurosawa's 'Seven Samurai' transposed into the Star Wars universe. Soldiers from the malevolent galactic empire 'Mother World' descend upon farmers to seize their food, prompting the protagonist 'Kora' to embark on a quest to find seven warriors to defend them.


As Rotten Tomatoes statistics indicate, this film is not well-made. The reason for Lucasfilm's exclusion from the Star Wars franchise becomes clear. Kora's journey to gather seven rebels lacks coherence, failing to explain the necessity of those individuals. The film feels overly fixated on the number seven due to the homage to 'Seven Samurai.'


Originality is also lacking. Most of the characters appear familiar from Star Wars films or Disney Plus series. C-3PO, with a commanding voice and more serious demeanor, Fin, devoid of his usual humor, and a more cynical Han Solo constitute the main characters. The character portrayed by Bae Doona is not particularly impressive despite wielding a lightsaber. The traditional Korean hat, 'Gat,' worn by Bae Doona in the film, was poorly crafted, which felt jarring as a Korean viewer.


Despite these shortcomings, the film provides a satisfactory answer to the question, 'What if Zack Snyder directed Star Wars?' The film's appeal lies in Zack Snyder's signature cinematography, dazzling space visuals, impressive spaceships, and action sequences. The film is recommended for those who appreciate Zack Snyder's action and visual aesthetics.


The film concludes with a cliffhanger. The story remains unresolved, and the movie abruptly ends with the words 'To Be Continued' displayed prominently. Rebel Moon Part 2 is scheduled for release on Netflix in April. The ending feels disappointing, as the first installment does not adequately introduce characters or provide sufficient motivation, making the prospect of a sequel less anticipated.


While the evaluation may change based on the sequel's outcome, solely considering the first part, Lucasfilm's decision appears justified.
