Quote from: Variety
As Warner Bros. awaits the April 23 release of the much anticipated “Mortal Kombat,” it sounds like the studio is hopeful the film will mark the rebirth of the franchise. Joe Taslim, who plays the villainous Sub-Zero, tells me that he’s signed on for four more installments if the series moves forward. “If this one’s successful, maybe we do more,” Taslim says on this week’s episode of the “Just for Variety” podcast. He remembers playing “Mortal Kombat” for the first time when he was about 12 years old. “I was born in South Sumatra. We were poor so I didn’t have the console because it’s expensive,” says Taslim, now 39. “I went to my friend’s house every day to play the game. But you get there and there are like 10 kids lining up. Who wins keeps playing…so it takes me to get to my part like 40 minutes.”

If only the whole movie could have had the same tone as the first ten minutes...

I liked Kano's delivery of lines in the movie.

My main complaint (this issue arises in a lot of fight scenes in all movies) is that certain fight scenes ended too quickly and no build up to use of "fatality."

I wish they'd stop with the game dialogue.  We get it: it's based on a video game.  That doesn't mean they have to check boxes with lines like "flawless victory" or "get over here."  Sometimes the visuals are enough to make the point.

Christ, that was horrible experience. I lost nearly two hours of my life. Irredeemable.

I'm seeing reviews ranging from "I love it" to "why God why". Hmm.

This would have been a perfect movie for Zack Snyder to direct.  He could have even made it DCEU-compatible.

I'm the opposite, I was laughing every time they did something from the games.
