I grew up playing Mortal Kombat on Sega Genesis. So it’s pretty much been in my life since I was around 10 or 11! I saw the OG Mortal Kombat movie in theaters and was so excited to see it back then and loved it. It is cheesy and corny but still a great watch. When I heard Warner Brothers was making a new Mortal Kombat movie I got very excited. So of course like I did with the first movie in the ’90s I had to see this in theaters. So me the wife and kids all went to Murfreesboro and watched it and man did We have so much fun watching this movie. Kano is probably the standout with his comedic remarks.
I really loved how they centered it around Scorpion and him seeking revenge on Sub-Zero. I thought the FX was great and the cinematography was amazing Didn’t care too much for the CGI Goro but I can understand why they did it. You can’t overlook the brutal epic kills since all the new games have those fatalities that are just brutal. Hands down I would recommend you check this out and definitely pick it up on Digital, 4K, Blu Ray, DVD it’s definitely worth buying.

MMA fighter Cole Young (Lewis Tan), accustomed to taking a beating for money, is unaware of his heritage—or why Outworld’s Sorcerer Shang Tsung (Chin Han) has sent his best warrior, Sub-Zero (Joe Taslim), an otherworldly Cryomancer, to hunt him down. Fearing for his family’s safety, Cole goes in search of Sonya Blade (Jessica McNamee) at the direction of Jax (Mehcad Brooks), a Special Forces Major who bears the same strange dragon marking Cole was born
with. Soon, he finds himself at the temple of Lord Raiden (Tadanobu Asano), an Elder God and the protector of Earthrealm, who grants sanctuary to those who bear the mark. Here, Cole trains with experienced warriors Liu Kang (Ludi Lin), Kung Lao (Max Huang), and rogue mercenary Kano (Josh Lawson), as he prepares to stand with Earth’s greatest champions against the enemies from Outworld in a high stakes battle for the universe. But will Cole be pushed hard enough to unlock his arcana—the immense power from within his soul—in time to save not only his family but to stop Outworld once and for all?
