(trailer review) - Mortal Kombat

Red Band Trailer - Please note adult themed material.

I will try to make this trailer review short, but I am of an age that was alive and playing computer/video games when Mortal Kombat came out.  It was a game that was meant to divert attention from Street Fighter II back in the day.  Something different and challenging.  I got the first Mortal Kombat game on my, hmmm....I want to say Super Nintendo, having rented it from Blockbuster video and I loved it.  Ok, details are a bit fuzzy, I did rent A Mortal Kombat from there, it might have been 3, but the point is, I was alive and played the game which also meant I enjoyed it, bought Mortal Kombat 2 and watched the movie also.  Whilst the movie was terrible, It was nowhere close to as terrible the Street Fighter movie was, which was also nowhere close to how terrible the Super Mario Brothers movie was.  I say all of that to say this, having played these games, seen these terrible movies (although Mortal Kombat is the more superior out of the 3 I mentioned), this trailer looks like it is done for people like me.  Although I haven't played the latest Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat 11, this trailer is for them.  For the fans of the franchise and I love it.

It seems they are changing the lore a little and adding bits here and there but whilst there are rumours to who Cole is, for the most part, this trailer seems to be giving Mortal Kombat fans across the world, exactly what they want, iconic characters, iconic moves, bosses and fatalities and as gory as the game.  Love it!  Visually, it could look a lot better, but if i'm honest, I don't think it's bad enough for people to care enough about it.  Seeing the guy from Supergirl as Jax, he is totally unrecognisable which completely baffles me.  He looks sooo good.  Let's just hope as good as he is and this trailer, especially some of these shots like Sub-Zero freezing the shotgun blast and freezing blood in mid-air to form a dagger, let's just hope this movie is just as good.

Directed by Simon McQuoid and starring Lewis Tan, Jessica McNamee, Josh Lawson, Tadanobu Asano, Mehcad Brooks, Ludi Lin, Chin Han, Joe Taslim and Hiroyuki Sanada
