Cons - The new main character is pretty bland and uninteresting, gets Mary Sued with OP powers through very little effort at the most convenient time - The ending is rushed through in the last 10 minutes of the movie and is fairly anticlimactic. Feels like 3/4 of the movie is spent on the opening and by the time it gets into full swing it’s over. -The casting and writing for Raiden is horrifically bad.
Pros -The casting and writing for the other OG video game characters (other than Raiden it’s so bad) is good. -Kano and the actor playing him carry the movie -Lots of video game references
Overall it’s good movie if you are at all familiar with Mortal Kombat. It’s held back by the last 15 minutes of the movie on a mad dash to finish up almost like the editors ran out of time. It’s held back by the main character being a Mary Sue and some other key items like Raiden being put through with the effort of a high school cosplay.
