The script for “Rebel Moon,” penned by Snyder and co-writers Shay Hatten and Kurt Johnstad, packs in all sorts of mythological underpinnings and teases for future events, but very little matters more to the story at hand than the film’s concluding moments. After narrowly surviving the attack by the Imperium and slowly recognizing the symbolism of their victory, the merry band of warriors make the long trek back to the wheat fields of Veldt. The tone of the scene is full of foreboding and unresolved questions about what may happen next, but instead, the film makes the curious choice to return to a character who has remained off-screen for nearly two entire hours to this point. We once again circle back to the robot Jimmy, who has undergone a bit of a wardrobe change thanks to his friendship with Sam. He observes the conquering heroes from afire and wistfully gazes towards the sunset at the horizon, channeling his inner Luke Skywalker as the ending implicitly promises a bigger story for next time.

Narratively speaking, the final act is as straightforward as it gets; but in context of Snyder’s obvious inspiration from “Dune,” “Seven Samurai,” and especially “Star Wars,” many viewers will likely interpret this in the same vein as the final moments of “Man of Steel” — another movie that ends on a high note following a victory and hints at greater (and likely darker) things to come. As it stands, the fate of Veldt is far from secure. The Imperium is still out there with Regent Balisarius (Fra Fee), the man behind the curtain, intent on defeating Kora and the rebels. Now, however, they’ll at least be better prepared to face the impending war.

“Rebel Moon” is currently streaming on Netflix.
