The second movie (he's planning more) in Zack Snyder's Star Wars-inspired sci-fi saga, Rebel Moon: Part Two - The Scargiver, is now streaming on Netflix, and the first social media reactions and reviews have been shared online.

The first film, A Child of Fire, didn't exactly go over very well with critics (21% on Rotten Tomatoes), and while it doesn't sound like The Scargiver is a major improvement, the reactions do seem to be more positive overall.

As is often the case, however, the full reviews do tell a slightly different story!

Find out what's being said about The Scargiver below, and if you've seen it, be sure to share your own reactions in the comments section.

In addition to Skrein, Rebel Moon - Part 2 will see the return of Sofia Boutella as Kora, the titular Scargiver, Michiel Huisman, Djimon Hounsou, Doona Bae, Staz Nair, and Anthony Hopkins as the voice of evolving robot guardian Jimmy. The sequel will also feature Fra Fee, Cleopatra Coleman, Stuart Martin, Ingvar Sigurðsson, Alfonso Herrera, Cary Elwes, Rhian Rees, Elise Duffy, Sky Yang, and Charlotte Maggi.

"Rebel Moon - Part Two: The Scargiver continues the epic saga of Kora and the surviving warriors as they prepare to sacrifice everything, fighting alongside the brave people of Veldt, to defend a once peaceful village, a newfound homeland for those who have lost their own in the fight against the Motherworld. On the eve of their battle, the warriors must face the truths of their own pasts, each revealing why they fight. As the full force of the Realm bears down on the burgeoning rebellion, unbreakable bonds are forged, heroes emerge, and legends are made."

Rebel Moon Parts One and Two are now streaming. The extended cuts haven't been given a premiere date.

"While there’s still a lot of loose threads"

The movie is 4hours long and it's not even properly finished, all that for what? To set up sequels? What a joke.

Zack Snyder has done it again! Made a movie worse than before and fooled people into believing it was better. Only way to explain why people flock to his disastrous movies is mass-hypnosis.

Weird. I thought it was definitely worse than the first one although I liked the first one more than most. Don’t take that as a raving review though.

OK, only 8 reviews in thus far but RT is on 17%, Metacritic based on 15 reviews is on 38.

IMDB user reviews is looking at surface level more positive on 6.3 based on 451 scores but looking under the hood on that score heavily skewed by a load of 10/10 and 0/10 scores (plus those that didn't like the first or not into Snyder films are unlikely to check it out at all and rate GA wise)...

...suspect looking at the curves those who liked the first to thus watch this will score it an average of around 7/10 but for those that were not keen on the first would score way lower.

Still waiting on the longer versions before I check out either film.

I'm not even gonna give this a try anymore. Maybe when there's gonna be some r-rated supercut I will though.

@bkmeijer1 - there wasn't anything R-Rated in this one, no rape scene or tentacle sex scene.

@toylled - that's probably in the director's vut, and I'll be waiting on a supercut of those

@MotherGooseUPus - "Slow-motion scenes that sputter story pacing? Check.
Poorly developed characters? Check.
Plot holes bigger than the Milky Way? Check."

Snyder´s career in a nutshell.

So the incredibly high bar for the last decade of Zack Snyder movies has been reset!

His latest sh!tty movie is LESS sh!tty than his previous sh!tty movie.

What a fantastic achievement! Release the Snyder cult cut!!!

I got 16 mins in and had to stop. The dialogue is horrible. Literally every line. And the deliveries.... I can't.

I was gonna force myself just to have the knowledge of having seen it... But no. No, I refuse.

And I defend Snyder around here.

And I still don't condone the Snyder hate and bullying. But he does make some bad movies and this is another. It's painful to watch, man. I'm sorry.

How do you make Rebel Moon part one worse?

Let Anthony Hopkins give a narration summarizing it in the beginning of part two.

I’m maybe 30 minutes into The Scargiver…the is terrible filmmaking.

Zack Snyder is a terrible filmmaker.

Its indefensible.

I’m actively rooting for the “bad” guys. I want to see them nuke the planet from orbit.

It was WORSE. Half of the film they were [frick]ing farming and telling their backstories? Which should've been shown in the first movie so we grew to like and give a shit about the characters. Awful.

@toylled - I’d argue that none if it should be shown. It didn’t make any sense anyway.

I just finished it.

It’s surprisingly worse than part one. I didn’t think you could get worse that that one.
