Mortal Kombat returns for a new generation but it’s far from a flawless victory
Based on one of the Bestselling game franchises of all time, Mortal Kombat is the latest big screen iteration of the classic series. The last on screen set of films began in 1995 and while fans enjoyed seeing the series brought to life, the films themselves were not great.
Almost 25yrs later, Warner Bros got the chance to relaunch the series for a new generation, making use of the latest technology, effects, and filming techniques. Much was made of Director Simon McQuoid’s love of the series and commitment to bringing a true version to the screen for fans. The initial trailer broke viewer records on YouTube so needless to say, anticipation was high, and everything was in place for this to blow us all away. So, it’s disappointing to say the final product was just ok.
