With Rebel Moon releasing in select theaters, viewers can now share their opinions on Snyder’s epic space opera.

Zack Snyder’s Rebel Moon Allegedly Debuts to Poor Audience Score on Rotten Tomatoes

Rebel Moon – Part One: A Child of Fire was released in select theaters on December 15, 2023, ahead of a wider digital release on Netflix. However, with the movie’s debut came a string of bad reviews, which resulted in a low critics score on Rotten Tomatoes. Despite the poor reviews, fans were optimistic about the end product and expected the audience score to demonstrate praise and appreciation for director Zack Snyder.

Rebel Moon currently sits at an audience score of 76% from over 250 ratings. Fans were expecting the audience score to be in the higher 90s, but the poor audience score has sparked a debate among fans about the viability of these reviews. Some fans have called out the declining audience score to be a result of the alleged review bombing, which also affected the overall rating. The film debuted with a meager 9% rating on Rotten Tomatoes but has since improved to 24%.

Rebel Moon Suffers From Anti-Zack Snyder Propaganda

Rebel Moon’s reviews have sparked a fan war, with a section of the audience suggesting that anti-Zack Snyder propaganda is being circulated to impact the film negatively. While the critics’ rating is certainly lower than expected, the audience score is a bit more respectable, especially since the movie is only accessible to a few viewers.

In comparison, Synder’s most recent Netflix original film, Army of the Dead, and one of his most-liked films, Man of Steel, also have an audience score in the mid-70s. Meanwhile, Sucker Punch, which is considered Snyder’s weakest film, has an audience score of merely 47%.

Despite the anti-Snyder propaganda suggesting Rebel Moon is one of Snyder’s worst films because the audience dislikes the movie, it does not tell the entire story. Thus, the suggestion that those who dislike Synder are leaving a negative rating for the film without watching it holds some water.

Furthermore, Netflix has planned to turn the first installment into a sprawling media franchise. The first movie will be followed by a sequel titled Rebel Moon – Part Two: The Scargiver, which is expected to release in April 2024. A third installment is reportedly also in development.

Therefore, it is safe to say that Netflix has the utmost faith in Snyder’s skills as a director, and the anti-Synder propaganda against the director is unlikely to overshadow future plans for the franchise.

Rebel Moon – Part One: A Child of Fire is playing in select theaters and will be available for streaming on Netflix starting December 21, 2023.
