    Cole young I loved him even though he is no where is in the series but its definitely possabilty... chan Tatum or ryan Reynolds would be a great johnny cage

    I’m a fan of grace but when I saw that she didn’t like Sonya from the trailer breakdown and was the only one to negatively comment about her (so far) in the review I knew not to trust her opinion on that

    I liked that Kabal had a personality... but, that was all that stuck out with him. It was more then what Reptile, Reiko and Nitara got though. Out of all the characters, they were the most wasted. Didn't even get a line. The tactical genuis that is Outworlds General, the vampire whos trying to free her realm from Outworlds control and the third of the original 3 ninjas made into nothing but 1-dimentional, no lined cannon fodder. No real emphasis on who they were or why they were a threat to the heros. Such a waste.

    I don’t think it’s that it took so long for the Scorpion bloodline to show up...there probably wasn’t a need for a fighter or champion until Coles time. Wasn’t impressed by his character though

    Grace, watch The Intergalactic Adventures of Max Cloud with Scott Adkins. He'd be the perfect Johnny Cage. His skills speak for themselves, but he's also incredibly funny and has great comedic timing. I think he'd be an asset to the sequel, especially because he'd have some insight for the action scenes.

    JCVD or Linden Ashby as a washed up and bitter Johnny Cage is the only thing that can salvage the sequel.

  • Jordan Hassell
    Jordan Hassell13 days ago

    Arcana was the 2nd worst decision they made. Mainly because its so lazy and unnecessary. For example: Sonya blades powers are straight from the games Grace. And the last few have explained them as coming from energy gauntlets on her wrist. This movie completly glosses over all the little details because the writers are too rushed (or incompetent). If your a fan of the characters or mythology you will be disappointed.

    I agree with alot of the points you make and give kudos you have been covering the latest MK game. Sonya in the movie is a pretty good rendition of the in game character. She's shot rings forever so that was actually accurate. I DO hope one day you have a retro day or maybe a "Watch Along" and watch the first live action MK movie. It's perfect in so many ways

    The movie is fun, but it could have been so much more, i felt like it was rushed, poor writing, creativity, no deep work done in it, poor choice of casting, poor world building, in the world of blockbusters n fantasy action movies, Mortal Kombat with its rich characters n potential for great action is an opportunity for an Epic n once in 10 years action movie, but it was reduced to just a nice movie.....

  • BoomStick Critique
    BoomStick Critique17 days ago

    As an adaptation it captures the spirit of the games which is over the top silly B movie cartoon with blood and gore and thats all it needed to be and for that it was great however not flawless. At some points it started feeling like episode of a tv series because the movie focused on a character that feels more like side character I didnt hate Lewis Tan nor love him he was fine average he doesnt have the charisma to carry the series as the lead but he was fine as side character at points but he wasnt needed. The fights could have been stronger but were mostly fine and the cool moves and gore fixed it the plot was good enough for a silly video game movie but was dumb in certain spots with things that made no sense but had to be there cause its from the game like Scorpion going to hell for no reason thats explained except to have in universe reason for his Hell fire power from the game lol. This movie is really a prequel movie to the actual Mortal Kombat movie this movie needed a sub title like Mortal Kombat beginnings or origins or something to let people know this was more a prequel movie to the big tournament. For what this was and what its adapting it was about as good a movie as it could be with some exceptions like what I listed also Raiden and tsung were both flat actors were miss casted and never felt larger then life like they should. Still this was great start to what should be a silly cartoonish B movie level franchise about super powered characters fighting for the fate of the universe against magic gory abilities lol. The sequel needs Johnny Cage as the star though each movie in the trilogy needs to have different main character.

  • Ales-sandra Cerise
    Ales-sandra Cerise17 days ago

    I think the arcana comes out when the person is in an intense moment which then reflects who the character is Kano - he's generally an angry aggressive guy so him getting them when feeling major rage after being embarrassed and called a failure made perfect sense Jax - doubting himself cuz he didn't have arms. then in order to save his best friend having to push through all that and believe he could do it then getting the upgrade and doing it Cole - having to save his family from a huge four-armed titan from killing them Now idk how miss Sonya got hers but I lived when she came in and said they were a parting gift it was funny as hell

    John-Michael18 days ago

    i was originally stoked that Johnny wasn’t in this film because i’ve never liked him as a character. but then everything about his character that i don’t like (the ego, the not-so comedic relief) they just tacked onto Kano 🙄 there’s just way better characters than Cage. also, Sonya has always had those blasts as her power set in the games.. the knives thing was actually an add on that she’s never really had be apart of her character. and the story was supposed to be a prequel to the tournament. the sequel is meant to be the tournament itself and the third installment is supposed to be about post-tournament.

  • Kelcore
    Kelcore18 days ago

    The fact they took out the tournament aspect for the film says it all. It just moved from one clusterfuck to another. The written was on par with annihilation... Plus somehow it felt completely rushed while also dragging on. I've got to say I feel a bit hoodwinked as they knew they had a dud apart from the pieces they put into the trailers. Honestly thought Cole was going to die and be possessed by scorpion (in my mind would have made more sense) and would have at least been better than man with the iron fist Dave Bautista. None of the good guys have any character personality apart from Kano (which makes me think they cut the film with him much heavily focused as they were pinning their hopes on it). Plus can we get action film without a ticking fucking clock for once, its cheap and played out. Plus the blatant attempt at baiting a cinematic universe... screams money over substance. At least at the end of the original when they did it, it had felt like they had achieved a victory rather than the screaming to a halt finish this film had. For me the original at least had a charm to it, which the upped gore factor didn't make up for in the new one.

    I understand you didn’t like Sonyas powers, Grace. Unfortunately, her energy blasts are directly from the game because that’s her special ability and fans of the game probably wouldn’t have liked it if they changed it.

    Liu kangs powers - Master martial artist, shoots fire balls from fists. Sonya - Shoots beautiful purple blasts from fists. Kano - Shoots laser beam from his eye. Kung lao - Teleports, Master martial artist, has the coolest hat in the world. Cole - Dude has a freaking long sleeved shirt. Like WTF.! And he's the worst MMA fighter. Like how's he even going to survive Mortal Kombat. Seriously.! 🤦🏽

    To be fair, Sonyas gauntlets are from the game. She has fisticuffs that shoot lasers. But I agree that for THIS sonya. it didnt look right. Another fault of the movie. They were too torn between making the movie have its own story/ lore, but then also have things recognizable from the game (including alot of 4th wall breaking jokes that were just references. Some of them good, some of them not good at all) It didnt know how to balance these two concepts making both of them mediocre (or just bad)

    Nitara was such a waste of a character. Literally only introduced in the story so a cool fatality could be shown. It was a great fatality, but I would’ve liked her to put up a fight and show her powers against kung Lao before he sliced her up. Neither nitara nor mileena fed on anyone, so that was disappointing for me 😂

    PTX_PIRATE19 days ago

    I really enjoyed this movie. Even tans cole young !! Yea it could've been better but it definitely wasn't "replace him with his daughter bad" grace lol. And Liu Kangor raiden described arcana as "discovering what ultimately drives you". Which I thought was made clear and made sense how everyone got their "powers".
