"Part One of Rebel Moon: Child of Fire" A Review of Galaxy Brained

Zack Snyder makes a space opera that is big but never really floats.Strangely, Zack Snyder's "Rebel Moon — Part One:

A Child of Fire" has at least two attempted sexual attacks and an uncomfortable sex scene between a shirtless man and an alien with many tentacles,

 even though it's rated PG-13 and often feels like a fantasy for young adults.

But the film's biggest sin is against its own movie heritage: "Rebel Moon" is a mix of "Star Wars," "Dune," "Lord of the Rings," and "Seven Samurai." 

To call it a "Star Wars" pastiche is both blatantly correct and a bit of a waste of time.

Derivativeness is almost a given in today's dream world. Snyder has been open about the things that inspire him for a long time.

A peaceful world called Veldt floats in a galaxy (you know how far away it is) where people dressed in burlap work the land and don't bother anyone.

 The Motherworld, a fascist kingdom, doesn't agree and sends Admiral Atticus Noble (Ed Skrein, donning a scenery-cheater), to get grain for its army.

Atticus has bowl-cut bangs, a S.S. uniform, and a really big stick, making him look like Ralph Fiennes' character from "Schindler's List" (1993).
