Moon Knight is a miniseries running on Disney +. It is 3 episodes old and has created quite a lot of buzz around it. It has an interesting premise and intriguing characters. Inspired by ancient Egyptian mythology, it is also quite different.
However, from all that, we have watched up till now, a question arises. Would Moon Knight have better worked as a movie than a series? We think yes and have listed reasons for the same. What do you think about it? Let us know your opinion in the comments section below.
1. Moon Knight Should Have First Debuted In a Movie
Unlike other major Marvel series leads on Disney+, Moon Knight was not established in the movies first. This is a disadvantage. While on the one hand, the long-form nature of the episodes gives more room to do character and story building, this also leads to problems with story pacing. The show has a lot to offer, and we think it would be best experienced with a higher degree of immersion, which a movie provides. The weekly episodes are too far apart. The story told in a single-full-length movie would be better.
The lead actor, Oscar Isaac, is well established and popular. He has shown his talent in well-received movies like, Inside Llewyn Davis. He could have starred in a movie based on the same story. However, that was not to be the case.
2. A Movie Budget Could Have Enhanced Many Things
The costumes in this series are good, but they could certainly be better when financed by a movie budget. A big movie budget would have enhanced the whole experience with better VFX and other technical things. Money buys the services of good talent, and good talent in all aspects of a movie makes it great to watch. While things are not bad with the series, they could have been much, much better when done in the form of a movie.
When and Where to Watch Moon Knight
The Show airs on the streaming service Disney+.
Season 1 of the show would have 6 episodes. Each episode is 40-50 minutes long.
