Oh god oh god. Why did I do it? I said I wasn't going to but I did. I will never get the time back. This film pretty much made the first film completely pointless. They should have started with this movie. At least this movie was tighter in narrative. Even though two movies later the plot went nowhere….at all. It also desperately and embarrassing tried too hard to be Empire Strikes Back.

This has to be one of the most "empty calorie" pieces of garbage franchises ever. I found very little redeeming about the script, terrible dialogue just like the last film. The stupid from the first just continues unabated in this one. There were a couple cool actions sequences but ruined by slow motion, exaggerated situations and sequences where it seemed like an amateur choreographed them.

Why so much damn slow motion?!?!?!? They should call this franchise Rebel Moon: Chariot of Fire edition.

There was some cool VXF but aside from that? I can't think of one reason to recommend this hot garbage to anyone. Zach Snyder is the Joel Schumacher of this generation (franchise killer).

Good movie to take a nap to? Took me about 5 different tries to finish the first one.

I watched both of them over the weekend... not bad but the genre is already over-saturated. Apparently there's 6 parts to this too.
Are there really 4 more of these coming out? One and two were so bad.

Snyder originally said a trilogy but then later said depending on how he writes the stories he could split them into 4 to 6 parts. Seems like ratings and money would be driving that instead of an actual story. Then again, there is the extended versions, the black and white versions. Heck he could technically release 18 versions......
:barf:
