|Mortal Kombat 2021: What's Your Review? by Incognito403: 1:41pm On May 12|
Today, I finally got to watch the much anticipated Mortal Kombat 2021 movie. Here's what I think about this movie.
Firstly, I wonder why there has been no frontpage thread about this movie. I mean, this movie is one of the biggest things this year (at least for Mortal Kombat fans).
Now to my review.
1. I've watched the trailer many times on YouTube but it didn't really impress me. But that still didn't stop me from thinking about this movie.
2. I've watched the two previous movies that were done on Mortal Kombat. I didn't enjoy the first movie but then mortal Kombat, to me, is like pizza (or sex); even when it's bad it's still good. But the second movie (mortal Kombat annihilation) was a lot better in my opinion.
3. Before watching this 2021 mortal Kombat movie, I'd read reviews online and I was surprised to see poor reviews. Many people said the movie wasn't made for everyone, instead it was directed at fans of the MK video game.
4. Personally, I enjoyed the movie. And the part I loved most is the plot twist when Cole was fighting Sub-Zero. It was superb. Then there's Kung Lao's fatality. Liu's dragon. Kano and Sonya's feud was featured. Most importantly was how well the directors used Sub-Zero. He was in top form throughout the movie. Among many others.
5. I do feel the directors deliberately featured big names to appease the MK fans. For example, Goro wasn't necessary.
6. I also feel the directors tried to cramp too many features of the video game into the movie. Many went well but some didn't fit. For example, Reiko didn't do anything significant in the movie.
I enjoyed the movie and believe every MK fan will. As for non MK fans, you might be disappointed.
Nairalanders, what do you think?

the only disappointment in the movie was the story line and introduction of a new character maybe he might be in the next game.
any way the story line didnt go well with MK as we all know the rules, the combat begins first anything outside the ring is breaking d law n shangsung or what ever is name was doing it openly instead of hunting d fighters individually so they dont make it to the arena.
and raiden can only interfere if d rules are broken but nahh he just put up a protector that is link to a machine, and watch them fight each other.
the fighting is fine, the story not so much

True, the storyline had a lot of modifications; Jax's hand was something entirely different from what previous mortal Kombat movie had. But the makers of this MK can argue that they aren't obliged to follow previous director's opinion.
Also, Scorpion's story was modified. All the games and movies agreed that his family and clan were completely wiped off but this new movie says something different. I can't give a thumbs up for this.
Regarding the new character. Even the makers of the game introduced a two new characters in mortal Kombat Armageddon.
Personally, I don't really care about the storyline. I enjoyed the combats. Subzero was superb.
The only part I dislike about the movie's story is that Cole's costume. It looks like copy-paste from black panther. I was expecting something more superb. But it disappointed me.
Then the story featured a number of plot twist. Without which it would have been boring and no different from previous game storylines. But it was a risk. Many fans thought the story was off target.

I played this game in the late 90s on super Nintendo.
Liu Kang brutality.
Forward forward down down A was his fatality.
Only legends can relate.

MK 2021 was a complete disappointment and a stain on the MK franchise.
From their wack fight choreography to poor choice of characters.
1. Raiden was just looking like a dude trying very hard to look strict and hide his laughter
2. Shag tsung was looking more like a vampire.
3. Mighty liu kang was acting like a high school poet.
4. Story line was just wack too,
5. The best characters were jax, sonya blade, kano.
6 the next movie should please be made by another better director.
7. This movie only made headlines due to past glory (the old movie and the video game)
8. Lemme pause here for now to read other comments

Yet to watch the movie. But the truth is that Mortal Kombat is popular because of the video game.
The movie itself is overhyped. The storyline is just average, and more like a myth or Sci-fi?
The makers had MK gaming Fans on mind before embarking on the production.
Without the gaming Fans, MK wouldn't have gotten so popular. So every feature of the game that was replicated into the Movie isn't actually a waist of idea, because the movie is primarily for the fans.

Horrible. There was no tournament, as the Game originally depicts, the fight choreographs were some how immature. Movie was didn't live up to the hype at all

acting was an intense dumpster fire .
story was rubbish.
only redemption was kano who carried the entire movie on his back with his acting , brought the character to life.

Not too interesting story line.

The cinema made it fun for me. The crowd the cheers and everything. It would have been boring seeing it alone.
Oh and Kano great spice.

This is shameful, as a top mortal kombat fan, I never see this movie. Let me go and see it first.
4 hours later. I have watched it, and I am heavily disappointed - I think it is a waste of data.
In case you watch this one, please watch the earlier ones and see the difference.
