Lots of fan service. Incomplete story, though.

Gore and action that can be best appreciated if you’ve seen the original Mortal Kombat movie or played any of their games. If you come to this with no background knowledge of the franchise, this movie will make absolutely no sense at all. There are three fatalities, plenty of fighting and lots of easter eggs. There’s also a serious attempt at a plot which is actually a negative. It’s not a complete movie - you can tell by the abrupt ending that this is meant to be a 2 or 3 story arc.
If you love the MK game franchise or the original movie, this movie is pretty good. It makes the campy franchise almost legitimate.
