Moon Knight episode 2 review: Not as sparkling as the pilot, but Oscar Isaac makes the Marvel show worthwhile

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 second episode of the Moon Knight is not as dazzling as first, when it should have been the other way round

First is where you set your base, and in a six-episode series, the show should move with certainty and self-assurance, if not with speed.

But all is not lost, because there are good things about this second chapter in the Moon Knight world.

We meet a bewildered, out-of-his depth Steven once again. He has been asked to leave his job, courtesy the mayhem at the museum the night before, events which dominated the latter half of the pilot.

 some bit of the CGI felt flat, for instance, the part when Ethan Hawke’s Arthur is seen invoking the goddess Ammit.

The crackling burst of electricity and light just did not do anything for me, which is a shame, since this was supposed to be a powerful moment.

Now all Moon Knight needs is a little more spice to help push things forward more convincingly.
