It was an entertaining movie. Wasn't anything great, and wasn't anything terrible. Just . . . a movie.

As a big fan of the games, I feel they should have used the story lines from the last three games to get a good trilogy going. The fucking STORY MODES of the last three games was better than the movie in my opinion.

MK9:



MKX:



MK11:



Even the god damn trailer for MK11 was a better movie trailer:

Spoiler: The main character (someone who doesn't even exist in any of the MK games), was only there because they didn't want a white johnny cage being the hero of the movie (producer is on record saying that), and he defeated the 9 time champion of the tournaments by literally getting covered in plot armor.

It's a decent movie if you don't know anything about mk, but man, it really shit on the fans.

Yeah, I was hoping Kano wouldn't end up being a real bad guy even though we knew Sonia was going to kill him to get her marking

It's worth learning how to pirate so you can watch it for free.

I was wondering WTF that main character was. Then I read exactly what you posted and I was pretty disappointed.

Isn't that all of them these days?

What are the best movies that came out in the last 10 years? No superhero movies, that's every other movie they put out now.

We got HBO Max for free with an upgraded cell phone plan (that was cheaper than the old plan), but MK is not listed any longer. Guess when they release a new movie, it is only available for a short time on HBO Max.

It’s back up on HBOMax and it was a let down. The highlight was the Scorpion/SubZero fight and that was meh.

Yes, I guess I expected better fight scenes than a typical shitty mutiple camera angle changes to cover shitty choreography fight scenes that happen more often than not.
