Where does Moon Knight Episode Three land on the Banana Meter?

Hello and welcome to another week of the Banana Meter! For those not aware of how this works, let me explain it to you. First, our critics check out a film. Then, they rate it on our scale of 0-100%, we gather the percentage from all of your critics and that’s how we get our rating on the Banana Meter.

What is the Banana Meter scale, you ask? 

When a film hits above 85% or higher from our critics, it means it hit Bonafide Bananas status.
When a film hits between 55-84% or higher from our critics, it means it hit Ripe status.
When the film hits under 55%, it means it hit Sour Status.

Hitting the Banana Meter today is

Here is what our Ripe Banana Critics are saying about the film:

Rayyan Akbar

Banana Meter Rating: 88%

This is Moon Knight’s best episode yet. The series brings Egyptian gods and culture to the forefront, giving off great Bourne identity and Indiana Jones vibes. It also dives straight into all the weirdness and delivers wonderful visuals, brutal action, and more emotional weight to punctuate it all.

Oscar Isaac brings his undeniable charms to Marc Spector and Steven Grant. Comic book fans may find Moon Knight somewhat sanitized, but these four episodes mark a solid debut for the character in the MCU.

Banana Meter Rating: 75%

A great character study. As Marc and Layla close in on Arthur, they realize Steven may be of some use in an ep that looks gorgeous. One of the best mid-series finales yet from the MCU, although there is a noticeable lack of Moon Knight.

Banana Meter Rating: 90%

The third episode of Moon Knight is without a doubt my favorite so far. The action sequences were a lot better, and I had some pretty dark moments for a marvel project. This episode was exactly what I wanted out of this show. Things are getting really wacky, weird, and ambitious and that’s what I appreciate about it. Sometimes things got a little confusing, but it wasn’t overbearing. Can’t wait for next week’s episode.

Banana Meter Rating: 100%

With its best episode yet, Moon Knight delves deep into Egyptian culture to a resounding effect. It’s epic on a scale unseen in any of the Disney+ series, and it deserves to be treated as such.

Admittedly disappointing in its action sequences and clunkily written exposition, the welcomed addition of the late Gaspard Ulliel saves the day.

Banana Meter Rating: 80%

Visually stunning and sweeping in scale, episode 3 proves that Moon Knight as a Marvel show just keeps getting better with each passing installment, given how the central characters are granted enough depth to keep things varied and interesting. The Cairo sequences re-instill vigor into the narrative and the fight scenes with Marc at the center are stellar to behold.
