Mortal Kombat

Recommended Posts



I bet it'll be a 3 hour movie and the first 2 hours will be character buildup of the new boxer character and his struggles with raising a child while trying to work a job and have a boxing career. Slowly they'll bring in some other human mortal kombat characters and in the final hour explain some elaborate tournament and introduce 18 more characters a ninja army and a bunch of aliens in a train wreck of a final hour.. but the best scene will be in the last fight when the boxer has a flash back to him telling his kid something while he throws that perfect finishing punch that saves all of earth.

There... now I can skip this movie. XD

I thought it was a fun movie. XD The acting was bad and the plot wasn't good, but the fights and cg were great. The main character was pretty dull and his fight scenes weren't the best. I was expecting a syfy quality B-movie plot with triple A special effects budget and I wasn't really disappointed because my expectations were so low. XD But I'll have to say my biggest gripe is that it is a movie about Mortal Kombat, which is a tournament... and in the movie they never did the tournament. wtf. XD I read they'll make at least 1 or 2 more sequels and that was planned. But even so they could have done a second tournament in a second movie. And Liu Kang's character seems like a wasted opportunity because he had no real substance. Also, for the characters to have abilities because of a mortal kombat mark on their bodies seemed like lazy writing, but I did like that they all had their powers from the games as it made for good special effects. My favorite character was Kano. XD

It was a fun movie with great special effects and awesome fatalities... and that was it. Horrible acting outside of Kano... but that didn't matter. The pacing and Cole sucked. Cole should have never been in there. He wasn't in the games, he was so out of place... and his first victory was stupid without spoiling it, you know why.

The pacing... it was all the pacing. Started out strong... then lets go searching.... then lets train... then boom everyone fights at the same time... no focus on individual fights.. then ok.. we won.. time for MK2. Such an abrupt ending. It was pretty jarring. The original movie was better.

Lets face it - the story sucked, script sucked, there was no actual tournament (although I get that it's a setup for the sequel that's happening), nobody to stay invested in emotionally or feel for any of the characters, not that great special effects and bad fighting angles. But, I still watched it - twice - for the heck of it and nostalgia haha. But if I'm being honest with myself, this was very forgettable. 


I am putting myself to the fullest possible use, which is all I think that any conscious entity can ever hope to do.
