Among the main comments, journalists highlighted the depth and unpredictability of the script, combined with the performances of Isaac e Ethan Hawkealready considered one of the best villains of the Marvel.
Furthermore, another striking aspect is the courage of the Marvel Studios by taking a chance on a dark plot and completely different from what he has been doing with the main productions of the MCU.
Even so, there are still those who expected more and claim that the series failed to deliver what it promised in the trailers.
Check the reviews:
“oscar isaac is a great addition to the MCU and Ethan Hawke is already ranked as one of the best villains in the Marvel yet. My only complaint is that six episodes aren’t enough to ‘moon knight‘ and I already want more.” – JoBlo.
“From the very first episodes of this exciting journey into the darker side of Marvel, we are absolutely involved with the combination of grounded drama… and horror that drives the show.” – io9.
“‘Moon Knight’ is a fresh take on the MCU in tone and plot, tempering the superhero genre formula with a dash of comedy, horror and a touch of old-fashioned adventure.” – Empire.
“If you thought big-budget TV series were exhausting their ability to surprise, get ready for ‘Moon Knight’.” – The Daily Telegraph.
“Isaac always manages to grab our attention with the multiple personalities behind the costumes.” – Cleveland Plain Dealer.
“Flashes of brilliance offer a glimpse into the most introspective and imaginative series we were promised, and the finale has the opportunity to deliver. However, the latest release of Marvel Studios and Disney + is also the most disappointing.” – FearHQ.
“‘moon knight‘ remains wonderfully unpredictable every step of the way.” – Matt Webb Mitovich.
“Part comedy, part action-adventure and with touches of romance and horror, ‘Knight of the Moon‘ is diverse in its narrative, making it weird in the best possible way.” – The Paste.
“There are many interesting aspects to the ‘moon knight‘ but neither the comics nor this TV show named after him know what to make of them all.” – Rolling Stone.
The cast also has Ethan Hawke (‘The Entity’) and May Calamawy (‘Frames’).
Aaron Moorhead e Justin Benson (‘Synchronic’) will direct the series, from scripts written by Jeremy Slate (‘Umbrella Academy’).
