Yes.
You must accept the cheese factor in MK.

This movie was fun... but it sucked. (For most of the reasons Wallcrawler already mentioned)

MK: Rebirth still kicks all ass.

Yeah i watched it last night with my son.

As a 14 y/o, he loved it. I woulda too if i were 14.

I'd say that it was a better movie than that shit from the 90's.


It both sucked and was awesome at the same time, lol.

I felt like it embraced the cheesiness that is Mortal Kombat though, and didn't try to be something it wasn't. (Jax discovering his Arcano was just so :-) :-) :-))

The lack of a cohesive story and lack of character development, the weird time lapses, odd casting choices (im looking at you Raiden) and several other overlooked nuances were to be expected so i don't really hold it against the movie.

The comedy factor (mostly provided by Kano) and the fan service were cool and unexpected. I didn't expect to laugh as much as i did.

I thought they executed the spell effects pretty well. I sat there thinking i wish the Warcraft movie could've executed the spell effects this well, it woulda been a much better movie.

My one complaint though would be Cole's Arcana. Looks dumb. Rather boring. Built it up and unveiled, basically nothing more than an ugly magic shirt...

Oh and Im pretty sure Sub Zero and Goro make a return for MKII, assuming they get the green light for the sequel.

Oh and one more thing: I thought i saw Shao Kahn in the trailer, but i dont recall seeing him at all in the movie.

The Bi-Han version of Sub-Zero becomes Noob Saibot in the game so there's easy transition for a sequel.

Did not know that.

Yeah. It was ok. I put it in between 1 and 2.

Sonya and kano were the highlights.
Not enough sub zero and scorpion.

Wasted goro and went out like a bitch.

Shang tsung and raiden were underwhelming.

Also. Technically none of this was part of the tournament. How is obvious cheating not allowing raiden to intervene.

The next one appears to have Johnny Cage..I imagine they would look to get Kitana, Baraka and Smoke into the story.

Oh, and I would totally nail Mileena even with the flesh eating mouf.

Hell yeah. Honestly, I'd have been totally fine with it if they'd just used the original "GET OVER HERE" voice from the games. And if they'd have just had Liu Kang shouting gibberish as he was doing the Bicycle Kick.

Give me all that.

Which is SO fucking dumb. The premise is planet Earth fighting for its survival against foreign invaders. There are like 2 billion white and white-ish people in Earthrealm. It wouldn't be weird to have a few white guys on the roster.

Hah. Right?!? Wtf, bro. These dudes are literally in a temple named after you and explicitly told you they were there for some murder shenanigans. Why could you not just smite them all then and there?

On a similar note, this entire movie taking place before the tournament was a complaint I read a lot, but it doesn't actually bother me. Canonically, the MK tournament only takes place once every 50 years so you've kinda gotta drag it out a bit unless you want to have to turn over the Earthrealm roster with each movie.

:-) When they told Sonya she couldn't train without the arcana symbol and Kano dropped the "fuckin' whoops" it sent me
