Netflix launches much-anticipated product Masters of the Universe: Revelation This Friday. From Kevin Smith, the new animated series was supposed to be a sequel to the beloved 1980s cartoon, but now that the first five episodes are here, it’s clear that Smith has really cooked up a something even more surprising and surprising. Its bold storytelling choices earned it critical acclaim — but also raved fans.
Just take its Rotten Tomatoes score, for example. Usually, RT critics’ scores will be lower than audience scores because viewers are generally more generous. In this case, however, the situation was turned. At the time of writing, Revelation currently has an impressive critic composite rating of 94% but has a poor average audience score of 25%. The reason for the percentage being so low is that fans have bombed the show with 1-star reviews.
So why are some fans so angry with the series? Well, the big spoilers are coming… You see, despite the marketing emphasis on the Man (Chris Wood) and his arch-enemies (Mark Hamill), episode 1 takes a big twist. obliterate them both in one big battle. Teela (Sarah Michelle Gellar) then took on the role of the main character for the rest of the season. Episode 5 features the miraculous resurrection of Prince Adam – only to have him murdered again, seemingly forever, this time, by a Skeletor who has also resurrected.
The fact that He-Man was killed not once but twice on his own show is at the root of the review bombing. One angry RT reviewer, Matthew S, felt that it was like making a Spiderman movie about Aunt May.
“Imagine watching the first Spider-Man movie and it’s about the aunt maybe and she’s looking for a new uncle Ben, while Peter parker is a nerd who is weak most of the movie and barely visible. villain and heroic battle… here’s what he did.. took a fortune and used it to sneak a trojan horse in a series of Teela movies. —Matthew S.”
User AL said “it’s definitely NOT He-Man.” To be fair, Smith removed the Man’s name from the title, so that should have been a gift.
“It was disappointing to watch a show called He-Man just because He-Man was sent out in the first episode. What’s going on with these shows? You just need to write a compelling story around the original characters or create a new show called Teela’s Revenge. Whatever this is, it’s definitely NOT He-Man. Drop it down. – AL”
Most of these negative reviews are heavily criticized as Netflix should have just created an original series instead of using the He-Man IP.
“Why do something where you kill yourself in both episodes 1 and 5. This is not what the fans want. Only do something original if you don’t use the main character or the main villain”.
If you haven’t watched it yet and want to think for yourself, watch all five episodes of Masters of the Universe: Revelation Season 1 on Netflix right now. Part 2 will be released later this year.
