Moon Knight review, the sequel

Moon Knight is the latest Disney+ release. The story follows Steve Grant as he navigates a mental illness and tries to stop the menacing Arthur Harrow from reawakening an ancient Egyptian God from her tomb. The show had a lot of hype built around it and lots of high expectations were set for the show and its impact on the MCU, but did it live up to the hype?

Moon Knight was arguably the most confusing Disney+ series yet; the show didn’t really start tying everything together until the second to last episode of the season, but the series definitely lived up to the hype and expectations. The characters were genuinely interesting, and we wanted to invest time into watching them grow and progress as people and get closer to achieving their goals. 

I also want to point out that the mysteries that the series had at the beginning were solved at the end. We understood everything that happened, and they (the writers) wrapped it up really well and tied everything together. It’s impressive how well they did that in just six episodes. The conflicts were also resolved, but they also introduced new plot points and possible storylines for the future season(s) of the show. 

The action was also great, and they did not hold back with the fighting, and I found it really cool h0w the characters’ personalities affected their fighting style. Steven tended to be less violent, and Marc tended to be very violent while also recognizing that he’s only doing this because he has to, not because he wants to. Jake on the other hand, who was a new character/personality that was introduced in the end credit scene of the final episode is extremely violent with no remorse or hesitation for what he’s doing. He gets the job done and doesn’t question it. 

Overall, I was impressed with the show, and I really enjoyed watching it. It was a great series (probably my favorite out of the Disney+ series so far), and I’m really excited to see what Marvel has waiting in Moon Knight’s future in the MCU.
