Rebel Moon – Part One: A Child of Fire is Zack Snyder’s ambitious Netflix space saga that sees a hardened group of rebels uniting to fight horrifying evil! What once was pitched to Disney as a mature Star Wars spin-off with new characters eventually turned into the director taking his idea and story of decades over to his new partners at Netflix. Capitalizing on the success and online outcry for Zack Snyder’s director cut of Justice League (Zack Snyder’s Justice League), Netflix allowed Snyder the ability to shoot this film as he would have and then edit a PG-13, shorter version that they could release on the platform first. With the knowledge that there’s a longer cut of this film out there, I can’t say that didn’t impact me after watching the film as I felt the 135-minute runtime wasn’t nearly enough time with these characters.
