[6.25/10] Mortal Kombat (2021)

Mortal Kombat (2021)

Quick Review: The deftly-crafted intro is superb, but the rest hardly lives up to it, due to an incoherent plot with a bunch of origin stories, dull protagonist, cheesy acting and writing, rushed pacing, and sub-par editing, but the quick-cut fights are as thrilling as the gory fatalities, and though "MK" dares to neglect a few characters, some really stand out -- Sub-Zero is 'freezing' cool and Kano brings the comic relief, but it's Kung Lao that steals the show straight up from his flashy entrance.

We saw it Friday. A bit disappointing. There was no Mortal Kombat tournament!

Yeah, it was some sort of a prequel. Loved the prologue. The rest was okay I guess.
