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.
