A fighter with a tattoo.
A cursed bloodline.
One hell of a way to plot out a videogame.
“Get over here!”
The new Mortal Kombat far and away beats the tar out of the original movies in just about every way that matters.
For any fan of gaming, action movies, or martial arts, you were influenced in some way.
I won’t get into many plot details because it doesn’t really matter. I heard from more than a few people that the movie was terrible. “Garbage” as one person noted. Were you expecting “Gone With The Wind” ? It’s Mortal freaking Kombat!
Raiden, Liu Kang, Kano, Sonya, Scorpion, Sub Zero, and the rest of the characters are all here. Enough about that.
I want “Finish him!” I want fatalities as cool as the game. You get all that, a good story, better acting, and dare I say some fine martial arts.
To be fair I have not played any of the video games since at least the last decade so I am not really familiar with the latest on characters and such. I am aware that there was a crossover game and an RPG awhile back. This movie plays well to both without alienating the casual fan.
The movie was also the most watched on streaming for some time.
If you are looking for a solid action movie this is for you. If you’re looking for drama, find it elsewhere. Though it does have plenty of comic relief from Kano.
It’s fun, and the directing is really good.
I’d say if you remember the games at all check it out.
