‘Moon Knight’ Episode 6 REVIEW: Marvel’s Action-Packed, and Imperfect, Conclusion
It has been among the greatest entries into the pantheon of the Marvel Universe, whose ending brings some of the biggest moments to the forefront, as imperfectly set up as they may be; this is our Moon Knight Episode 6 Review.
With what we hope is just the first season of the MCU’s newest series behind us, it is not hyperbole to insist that Marvel’s work on Moon Knight is among its most creative and ambitious storytelling feats yet.
A series that boasts near-perfect entries at several points, Moon Knight just kept on raising the stakes and exploring the psyche of a deeply troubled, but relentlessly endearing title character.
With Episode 5 appearing to be the pinnacle of the show’s creative and executive powers, the concluding entry brought the entire conflict of the series to a head in what is easily the biggest and most action-packed event of the series thus far.
Moon Knight Episode 6 feels the most like an MCU film; the scale increased to a level on par with any Marvel series to date, as the mystical beings in the battle over ideology and control truly face off in a grandstand.
It will inspire audiences to revel in the execution of its action sequences, with it being the best choreography and fight sequences the show has to offer yet; but it does so in an episode that is undeniably flawed.
The finale episode falters some in its execution at key moments, with things like uneven CGI and pacing issues balancing greater problems surrounding the narrative’s open-endedness and reliance on a plot device to save Marc Spector from situations becoming glaring reality.
But, flaws considered, there is a lot to enjoy about this episode; Layla truly stands out as one of its most impressive characters and becomes a vital contribution to the story where she was simply a supporting character, and viewers finally see the most complete version of Marc Spector yet.
Overall, the series will end with you desperately hoping that you haven’t seen the last of Marc Spector, Steven Grant, and Layla El-Fouly; and with a distinct fear that things still aren’t quite what they seemed…
