Mortal Kombat 2021

  What is there to say about this new Mortal Kombat? We all went into this expecting the same thing right? Some beautiful effects, awesome fight scenes and at best some decent story, but did we get that?
 
    Well for starters, the effects were in fact beautiful. The ice coming off Sub-Zero’s hands in the very start of the movie were magnificent and seeing the blood splatters through out the movie, it almost looked like people really getting busted open.
  
   The right scenes were also great, the it was almost like watching a dance at a time but none of it seemed overdone. There was a nice mix of flashy moves and brutal combat.

   The story however falls flat, and honestly that’s no surprise. Really it was just a reason to get people fighting. The whole thing really takes place prior to the 10th win in a row for Outworld and of course Shang Tsung would like nothing more than to cheat his way to victory. He sends his assassin’s to kill Earth’s heroes Liu Kang, Kung Lao and Jax just to name a few.
  
   This brings me to the new original character Cole Young. Truthfully I hate this character. He is totally unlikable and his entire story is straight out of some 80’s acting movie cliche. Don’t get me wrong,Lewis Tan does an amazing job with what he is given. The character itself is just bad.
 
   All in all tho I enjoyed the movie, just watch it for what it is. An action movie where you are meant to enjoy the fighting and the story is just a means to get to those fights. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
