Rebel Moon gets Review Bombed to Smithereens! But are the Critics Wrong?

A few days prior to its official premiere, the Zac Snyder sci fi slash Star Wars inspired epic Rebel Moon is currently sitting at an average of 24% percent according to Rotten Tomatoes. Critics from Daily Beast, Slash Film, Hollywood Reporter and Variety to name a few, were very brutal when reviewing the Netflix produced film gave it less than stellar praise.

Here are but a few examples:

“Rebel Moon began life, a decade ago, as a pitch for a new Star Wars franchise installment. Still, that doesn’t excuse its inability to fashion a single sight or idea that isn’t a dull sci-fi cliché.”

“When not indulging in empty flowery language, Snyder, Kurt Johnstad, and Shay Hatten’s script has everyone bluntly explain who they are, what they feel, and why they’re doing what they’re doing.” – Nick Schager, The Daily Beast

“As with most of Snyder’s films, the script slightly lets A Child Of Fire down. A lot of seeds are planted for future installments, including next year’s Part Two: The Scargiver, but it’s at the expense of character work.” 
– Maria Lattila, Film Stories

“The problem is that the plot that Snyder has come up with for the movie is nowhere near as interesting as the world it takes place in.” 
– Ian Sandwell, Digital Spy

“The screenplay he co-wrote with Kurt Johnstad and Shay Hatten plays like the result of someone feeding Seven Samurai and Star Wars into AI scriptwriting software.”– David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter

“The unfortunate fact remains that his storytelling instincts leave much to be desired.” – Jeremy Mathai, Slashfilm

Like I said, these were a few examples compared to the others who spared no expense voicing their unrestricted opinions about this movie .
So, what does this mean for Zac Snyder’s latest anticipated project, or his legacy? Did the critics call it, or are they just dead wrong? Eventually, we’ll find out for ourselves once Rebel Moon drops this coming Thursday on Netflix. Personally I think the trailer looks promising, but Snyder’s filmography are often hit or miss and as of recent, his career has taken a downturn post Batman Vs Superman and despite the Justice League cut making up for the disastrous Joss Whedon version, it's not enough to redeem himself in the court of opinion.
