“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!!
