This version of the mortal kombat is 100 times better than the original movies in the 90s. It’s brutal, it’s bloody, it’s violent and no holds bar action! The 90s ones were campy and goofy. This one is a lot serious and dark! I enjoyed every minute of it!
Shipped promptly, & apart from courier not leaving in a safe location (literally threw padded envelope on garage floor, where I could have driven over it), arrived in good condition. Watched it & thoroughly enjoyed it.
This movie is very well done. The fighting is absolutely amazing. As far as technique and martial arts skill, the movie is better than the game. (Not a criticism of the game.) The character costumes are much better than the original movies. I really liked some of the twists the plot takes with Scorpion, which are true to the more recent installments in the MK universe from Ed Boon.
The movie has received criticism on social media. It is true that no movie is without sin (to quote CinemaSins). However, I am of the opinion that much of it is unfair at best, and untrue at worst. The strength of the MK games is the fighting. The game only provides enough storyline to give character backgrounds and why they are fighting. This isn't Mass Effect, the Matrix, or Lord of the Rings where the storylines are more integral to their respective universes. Additionally, the original MK games, and the ladder play on the recent ones, can be beat in 20 minutes. With all that said, stretching the game into a full feature movie, while staying true to the essence of the game, is not going to be easy. Either you have to sacrific fighting for storyline (which will probably require leaving the MK universe to an unacceptable degree), or you have to stay true to the minimum-lore tournament that focuses on the fighting. I feel the movie did more of the latter, which would be my preference. Again, it is a fighting game and not Harry Potter or Star Wars. Not only did the movie stay true to the fighting, but it brought in world-renowned martial artists and a real MMA fighter. It makes the fight scenes so much better.
It is a great movie, imho. I hope we get one or two sequels from it. And I hope others who think they might have some interest in it give it a chance.
How bad this movie was. And with the budget this movie had... 'Mortal Kombat: Annihilation' might actually have been better than this one. And that one is abysmal.. I don't think the creators knew what direction they was going, aside from the ultimate fight between scorpion and subzero. I'm actually amazed this film didn't put Shao Khan as side lacky #2, after the way Goro was treated/dispatched. I do not look forward to another 'Mortal Kombat' movie made by these writers/studio. I don't really blame the actors here. They did a good job, in this movie. They might be the only reason I rate this a two star instead of a 1 star. The graphics almost look cartoonie at times. They should have just stuck with 1980 graphics stuff or not tried at all, I really don't know what would have been better. I think if your a hard/big fan of Mortal Kombat games or lore, stay away from this. A casual fan or player might like it. It's most definitely another misunderstood game translated to a movie...
Been playing the first game down the years. I kept on buying Mortal Kombat games. I enjoyed the 1995 movie ever since and the Annihilation one too. Years later they finally made this one. I admit this had a little bit dialogue but Mortal Kombat never disappoints with fights, effects special powers. finishing them with special techniques. You get to see Goro and plenty more. The storyline was believable. The actors & actresses were very good. I hope they do a second one later in the future. Highly recommend.
The seller is excellent. This movie was totally fun and sets up some great lore. That being said, this movie was all over the place with inconsistencies. My favorite inconsistency is Reptile's acidic drool that Kano used to melt his chains. Then immediately after, Reptile wraps his tongue around Kano's neck... an Kano was perfectly fine... Um, shouldn't the acidic saliva on Reptile's tongue have melted through Kano's neck too? I mean whose tongue is completely dry and free of saliva? Anyways, this movie is all about setting up its own world rules and then immediately breaking them right after... So, what's the point? Simply put, it's lazy writing. It's still a fun watch though. If I was rating just the movie and not the seller along with it, I would give this movie a 2.5 stars.
but I do not. I have never played the video game and have seen the earlier movie and really had fun with that. I love the look of this movie and I love the fight scenes and really love Subzero and all the effects that go along with him. As a story this was so very good to me, was it predictable, it really was but that is okay, I was not expecting Wuthering Heights. Ther characters were good and the acting was good, too. I was slightly bothered by the whole " I have to see my family" crap by Cole...for God's sake you are needed to save the world! Get over it, selfish baby. Anyway, i liked it and recommend it, I just wish they had not killed one specific character.
