"Get over here! Still cool 30 years later. Mortal Kombat was much better than I thought it would be. The finishing moves were awesome and the story did a good job referencing the video game. I was left wondering what is my arcana? It would probably be something like I can kill people with my farts. Don't think I would even have to train that hard for that."
"Really enjoyable movie. Gimme some better kills though! The video games are way more violent than this movie."
"I will be short. You should understand how hard to make movies based on such a legendary universe (expectation is too high!), with a lot of characters that need screen time, and with limited budget, PLUS in a pandemic situation, - the director made a great job. This is the best adaptation of such a legendary title."

In all honesty, I don't exac"
"I liked this more than I should have. I have tried the games, but am not into the fighting genre of games (although the Injustice series grabbed me for its story). The previous movies were fun and didnt take themselves seriously - which was good, but they got too hammy and over the top. The last cartoon took itself way to seriously and was disappointing and forgettable to say the least. This movie, however seemed to grab everything good from the previous attempts, added actors who kn"
"Fluff entertainment at its most bland. The fighting is pretty forgettable but at least they utilized the R rating for some decent gore that honors the game at least. Acting is at best so-so while the dialogue was pretty bad and it probably 10-15 minutes too long. Can't say I'll remember this but for what it is, it's fine as a time-waster. **2.75/5**"
