Mortal Kombat is one of those gaming franchises that should just be right for a movie. Somehow that didn’t happen after two or three attempts. I blame the first one who didn’t contact fans on this MPAA rating – PG-13. Seriously? It was like they made the movie based on the Super Nintendo version of the game or something. Then the second film, Mortal Kombat Annihilation, was also PG-13. I blame him for making bad decisions for his failure. It was like being in the studio, we can’t do any worse than in the first film. Then they went and made it worse.
Mortal Kombat 2021
This new Mortal Kombat movie is apparently a fresh start for the franchise. After all, fans can expect brutality and deaths with the Rated R. However, the setting for this entry is a little later than the first Mortal Kombat movie. The trailer shows some of the characters and some of them are from much later releases than were available for this original film.
Larger cast of characters
The original MK movie mostly featured characters from the first game. That was fine, they could have rocked it if they had an R rating for the film. Seriously, the characters were there and evolving – only the film studio dropped the ball hard.
Mortal Kombat 2021 will feature characters beyond the first game. Shao Kahn, Mileena, Kitana, Jax and others will fight on this reboot. Based on the trailer, we will get some information about Jax’s backstory and story of Scorpion. Should be an interesting story arc that finds out more about the yellow ninja.
If you’re a MK fan, check out Stoosherman on TikTok. Dude rocks the Scorpion cosplay. He also makes other characters like Kratos, Doom Guy, and Skyrim.
Get ready because the new Mortal Kombat movie hits theaters and HBO Max on April 16, 2021.
