I am 'fine' with the 95' film but I hope those who are really wanting to see this new one; enjoy it all they can. I am probably the ONLY one who doesn't mind the "awful should have never been made" sequel of MK 2 film which nobody cared for but it's also fine to a certain level. Hopefully The rebooted one we have can have a large franchise for fans to love that want it.

Maybe The Miz already filmed scenes as Johnny Cage. Thats why WWE put the belt on him.

Given how many reboots we’ve seen in recent years (Full House + Saved by the Bell + Karate Kid + Boy Meets World), does this really surprise you? To Mortal Kombat’s credit however, they have done a fantastic job of continuously evolving to the point of still remaining relevant. This new trailer is really good and has me excited.

I really enjoyed it. It's a lot like the first one in that from a purely critical standpoint, there's a lot of holes that can be picked at, but most people aren't going to care, because it's just so much fun.

Kano is definitely the highlight.

The editing is fucking terrible, and characters aren't utilized very well, but again, its still very entertaining for what iy is. Particularly if youre a fan of the series.

Very underwhelming. The original film is is structurally better with both plot and character development and considerably better acting in it as well.

the films action is well directed and the cinematography of those scenes is solid throughout but its the only high point. and even that is stifled by the constant need to have the characters strike a pose and "look cool" instead actually doing something interesting.

for a film that felt the need to create a new character to be its protagonist youd think theyd have made that choice because they had a story they wanted to tell.

what we get however is a vanilla protagonist (thats primary character development is he's a shit tier fighter) with motivations so routine that if i gave someone 3 guesses as to what they are i bet theyd guess it on luck alone.

none of the characters shine in any way save kano. maybe sonya but still very low tier.

for a film that deliberately attempts to tell an original story (despite having a great mythos that doesnt need to be abandoned) the film spends a 5th of its run time with cheeky winks to the audience in an effort to get cheap pops. this noncommittal approach to forging its own path leaves me being pulled in two directions. on one hand a new cannon with new ideas. the other leaning on what id rather be watching reminding me how unsatisfied i am with this product .

also wtf @ reiko. trash adaptation.

this is marginally better than annihilation and that was on a fraction of the budget.

I dunno where to start because Destor pretty much nailed it.

Reiko looked straight out of Annihilation. The bad guys (outside of SZ & Kano) might as well of been generic TMNT foot clan soldiers.

They literally ruined Goru

SPOILER: show
Nitara was def wasted and it seems like they only chose her because she has wings and could swoop down straight into that sweet fatality


Raiden was laughable as Earth Realm's protector....some fucking temple.

The biggest let down was how they talked this up as some of the best on screen martial arts...pff. So many camera cut aways.

It's no surprise Ed Boon has not ONCE commented on the movie yet

Scorpion/Sub-Zero scenes were ace, tho.

I would’ve preferred this to be a sub zero origin movie than what we got. Destor is on the money here. This was bland and boring and the original is a better film.

Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge is also on HBO Max and is actually pretty enjoyable.

Not that MK 2021 is HORRIBLE...just disappointing. I'd be willing to see where they go with the sequel(s).

SPOILER: show
Shang appeared to swoop up the bodies of his fallen so they'll probably be resurrected.


One more thing....Raiden's out of nowhere combatant teleports...fucking insulting to our intelligence!

Yeah...if they're really going for this MK multiverse it would have made sense to do standalone films. This could have followed SZ/Scorpion feud... There was Iron Man, Thor, etc. before there was the first Avengers movie. Then the studio wouldn't have had to demand their new character protagonist to hold the hand of people not familiar with MK lore.

I actually think the idea of a decendant of scorpion is a cool
idea, but anytime you introduce a new character in a franchise with so many iconic, memorable characters, you'd better make sure the new guy is interesting. And Cole isn't interesting at all.

They'd be smart to use the same peeps behind Scorpion's Revenge as fill in before the next movie (SW: Clone Wars style).

There's a lot of unexplained shit. Why does the Lin Kuei hate the Shirai Ryu so much? In the games, sub-zero kills hanzo as part of a job for Quan Chi. So what's the story here?

How the fuck is Sub-Zero 400 years old?

So Scorpion can just come back? Why did it take him over 400 years to get off his ass?

Maybe they should have followed the predecessor movies and kept Raiden Caucasian. William Dafoe could have stolen Kano actor's comedic thunder (no pun)

SPOILER: show
my take was Tsung was sending his men to kill the would be kombatants blood lines to weaken them when the challenge was initiated. his age i just kind of ignore. powerful magics. blah blah blah.

Writers thought Chinese and Japanese hatred was good enough?

Assuming SZ fought for Outworld, winning combatants get youth and power for the next tournament? might be wrong there.

Cole was given the gardening tool and I guess it sensed SZ...straight teleported Scorp outta the Netherrealm?

Another good prequel movie could have been Edenia getting ate up by Outworld with minor flashbacks to other realms getting absorbed...

Rewatching. That gardening spear had both their blood on it from the first fight. Good enough for me!

That's the thing though. They could have explained these things with a few throwaway lines but they didn't even try.
