“Mortal Kombat” was not on my original watch list, but I decided to go see it on the BIG SCREEN.
It’s been 26 years since the first “Mortal Kombat” arrived on the movie scene. Has anything changed…Not really? The players have changed, but the premise of the movie remains the same.
This version feels empty. The movie is “In Your Face Bloody”, Loud and Plotless. Although you could say that the plot is getting to the tournament to fight.
Instead of all the noise to get to the tournament, the movie should just be about the tournament. There will most likely be another installment. The door remains open. This installment mostly matches up with the video game of the same name.
The movie is entertaining, has lots of action and some intrigue. If you like martial arts, you will be entertained. The violence is “Eye-Opening”. As I previously stated, Bloody.
The story sort of stops short of a real ending, you are left to wonder. If you are invested in the Mortal Kombat Franchise, then you will want to see this installment. The fight sequences look good on the big screen.
Save your money and see it on HBO MAX unless you just want to get out and be in the theater.
This is a 2 ½ Star Movie!!
Just what we need right now, a “Block-Buster Monster Movie”
Do legends ever die…? Apparently not as two Mythic Monster Legends Godzilla and Kong meet up for an ultimate battle.
The state of the world hangs in the balance while Kong and his protectors are out on a journey in search of his true home, along with them is an orphan little deaf girl named, Jia. Jia and Kong have formed a powerful bond as she signs him, he understands her. During this journey Kong encounters Godzilla. The story unfolds from there…
There are 2 things that come to mind while watching this movie, 1. Part of the movie reminded me of one of the earlier installments of Jurassic Park (Scientists tampering with the Dinosaurs) There was something similar in this movie. 2. Godzilla and Kong reminded me of 2 Prize Fighters going at it. Each retreating at the end of an imaginary Round. The Boxing Ring is the World. Who comes out on top? You will have to see the movie to find out.
The Cinematography was awesome. The Special Effects were on point!! I was leery when I first learned of this movie back in early 2019, but there is some “Freshness” to this installment and it was surprisingly well done. The time went fast and the movie was over before I knew it.
If you feel comfortable it’s best seen on the big screen. The movie is streaming on HBO MAX, but I have heard the sound isn’t that great. If you see the movie in IMAX or a Dolby Cinema you will feel like you are along for the ride!!
This is a 3 ½ Star Movie!!
