Moon Knight: Review

Moon Knight: Review

Moon Knight is Marvel’s latest series, and those who choose to “binge” can now watch all episodes on Disney+. There are a total of  6 episodes, each running 40 to 50 minutes in length.

The story revolves around a man named Steven Grant, who is living with a disorder called dissociative identity disorder, which was previously referred to as multiple personality disorder. Those suffering from this  condition experience a shattering of their one personality into different personalities, often due to childhood trauma. It is a particular coping mechanism to confront this trauma and its associated bad memories. Surprisingly, however, one of the personalities to emerge within Grant is that of an Egyptian god. Throughout the series, Grant and his other known personality, Mark Spector, try to stop a man named Arthur Harrow from releasing the goddess, Ammit, from her stone imprisonment, in order to “make the world a better place”.

I think this show is pretty good for what it is, but not Marvel’s best work.

There are many amazing special effects, a good plot line, beautiful settings, and great acting, especially with the villain, Arthur, portrayed by Ethan Hawke.  Hawke does an amazing job playing him.

However, there are some moments that seem a little nonsensical and, although the ending was unexpected, it was still a little weak.

Overall, I give this show a 7.5 out of 10.

Check out Moon Knight, and let me know what YOUR rating would be!
