MORTAL KOMBAT 2021
GO INTO THIS FILM KNOWING THAT IT'S NOT GOING TO BE A MASTERPIECE
Mortal Kombat is a film based on a game about an inter-dimensional fighting tournament
THICK IN LORE
WHERE'S THE TOURNAMENT?
Oddly, no "Mortal Kombat" tournament takes place in this film, unlike the 1995 version.
NOT SHORT ON
Fast and fun set pieces move the film more than the story.
Most of the original characters are back and reimagined.
Despite its short-comings, Mortal Kombat is a fun adventure that includes enough fan-service and comic relief to carry the film
WORTH A LOOK
If you are a fan of the games, or martial arts movies in general, Mortal Kombat is worth a look. It's not the best film based on a game, but plays out much better than most.
