The second episode of the
is not as dazzling as first, when it should have been the other way round.
Moon Knight episode 2: It is a pleasure to see artistes like Oscar Isaac and Ethan Hawke together in several frames, but the Marvel series could benefit from pacier episodes. –
The action scenes are fine, but some bit of the CGI felt flat, for instance, the part when Ethan Hawke’s Arthur is seen invoking the goddess Ammit.
Meanwhile, Hawke plays Arthur’s delicate, unassuming sinister self to perfection. Isaac and Hawke’s exchanges on-screen has to be the highlight of the episode.
Episode two also gets in the jumping bit where we see Isaac’s character leap across building as his movements take the shape of a crescent moon.
