    i disagree with jessica macnamee she pulled off sonya blade very well and very believably.

    I loved it, & can’t wait to see what comes next for the franchise, it’s time for Warner bros to get their franchises kicking, not just DC & The Conjuring Franchise, it’s time for their others like Mortal Kombat, The Flinstones, Final Destination & others to make a comeback, & I for sure am here for it.

    Lady...if u no mortal Kombat explain your opinion....Syzoth is a reptilian...not actually reptile character... Shang tsung sent a reptilian from the race of reptilians to stop them.... When have you ever heard in the game that reptile was called syzoth??? Do you even mortal Kombat!???

    Sonya was not bad at all. She was much better than Cole.

  • The Horror Nerd
    The Horror Nerd15 days ago

    Sonya did fairly well and the Cole character would have worked if they gave him more of a personality. He got outshined by literally everyone else he was around

    There is a lot of highs and lows. Subzero, Kano and scorpion were great. Sonja and Jax were okay. The rest were terrible

    It's better than the first 2 mortal kombat movies... that's just not saying much... but heading in the right direction

    This movie was terrible. You're being really nice Grace. That 1995 movie was/is waaayyyy better. The Resident Evil and Fast and Furious movies are popcorn flicks. This was insulting.

    Get writers and a director who's been following since the beginning.

  • Steve Kasan
    Steve Kasan19 days ago

    Grace everything you said in this film I absolutely agree with, especially about how this truly felt like a 90s Martials Arts film. Those old films and moving into the 2000s was merely to showcase the different fights, fighters and styles. Which is fine, but, we are in 2021. The original MK did that and well. If the MCU like plan is to make this a series of films leading up to the Tournament as their big event movie, I can understand as there is a vast array of characters in MK. WB should get going on that sequel, make this their big franchise ending with the Tournament

    How tf did they get hired to be an actor /actress lol? Makes me wonder anyone can do it but I heard many bad movies are often filled with poor teamwork and poor directors.

  • Mental Deviant

    Where you how could Gore and violence be bad in the mortal Kombat movie and actually you kind of put that in the acceptable category.

  • Andrew Kwamina Nikyi Mensah
    Andrew Kwamina Nikyi Mensah20 days ago

    Agree with your reviews Grace, like we think the same way of the movie, as a mortal kombat fan it was underwhelming

    VFX Sub Zero's ice looks soo realistic. I enjoyed this movie from beginning to end.

  • Corsair
    Corsair20 days ago

    I really enjoyed the movie too, felt like a really good successor to the 90s movie. Somewhat epic is a pretty good way to describe, though I've gotta disagree about Sonya Blade. Thought the actress was pretty good

    B movie acting from not 1 but from 5 main actors 🙄🙄🙄 oh and let’s not forget the flimsy story 👎🏾

  • CJ
    CJ20 days ago

    I think the actors for Shang Tsung and Raiden were fine... HOWEVER, i think the issue is, they didnt get to do a damn thing........ Nothing...... They didnt get a chance to really deliver there characters, which isnt there fault.

    To say that some of the actors are bad and should stop acting is a rude thing to say.

  • Glorious Mustache
    Glorious Mustache20 days ago

    Can we all just laugh now that this movie was once a dubbed a "threat" to Shang Chi by Grace? Like seriously who would compare a cheap martial arts video game movie by WB against Marvel's first chinese superhero (which I'm sure they'll treat with more respect)?? 😂🤣

  • Daniel Ford

    I thought the choreography was pretty good (yes, it's no John Wick, but still), but the editing was bad, and some of the actors were just not convincing at performing the choreography.

    This movie was insultingly bad. The choreography was subpar as well. So many camera cuts. Bad acting, dialogue, poor story, no character development, plot holes. Felt like 8 year olds wrote the script. The animated movie did the opening scene much better as well.

  • Edwin Johnson
    Edwin Johnson21 day ago

    Bro. Grace savage AF for calling out Lewis Tan like that lmaooooo. Respect. But he's a damn good martial artist. The director just made a brutally fatal error in doing multi-cut fight scenes when these martial artists were MOREEEEEE than capable of doing longer shot sequences or even 1 take sequences. I love Tan's social too, as well as his artistic eye and his skill. I think given the right opportunity, he can shine. Either way, I'm glad he's being given more opportunities to prove himself.

  • James Frew

    Yeah but he was just so flat as an actor. Watching him and Jessica deliver lines was like being in an acting class and watching a self absorbed student who just wants to be famous and doesn’t know what acting actually is.

  • JJ Cruz

    I honestly couldn’t stand Kano. But the VFX was really fun to watch and the choreography was pretty fun.

  • Michael Pama
    Michael Pama21 day ago

    I thought the score was good initially, but then it just got really repetitive. Cole was lame, whoever thought swapping out Johnny Cage for him were idiots. I put MK 21 on par with the 95 movie, they both succeed and fail in different aspects.

    They didn't "elevate tensions between real world countries for the sake of a fantasy movie", Bi-Han and Hanzo just happen to be Chinese and Japanese without any consideration of real world politics. 🙄🙄🙄 Stopping watching this "review" right here.

  • E. Izaguirre
    E. Izaguirre21 day ago

    This movie is crap. The one from 1995 is way better than this. MK needs another reboot after this travesty. MK 2021 should be put in carbonite.

    I had a fun time watching this! It’s popcorn entertainment and has rewatch-qualities. What they did with all the snow and ice stuff was really cool. Kung-Lao, Kano, and Sonya were my favorites!

    Hector Frausto21 day ago

    I feel like this movie couldn't figure out whether it wanted to be a serious action epic or a cheesefest video game movie, the serious moments were badass but the cornball one liners were really bad.. Kano was a definite scene stealer though hopefully he comes back if they make a sequel

    I did enjoy this movie and I love Sonya Blade played by Jessica McNamee she did a great job in this movie and she was so amazing and I love her as a actress and they got my boy right Kabal he had a great fight scene and also gor was great in this movie and Milenna played by Sisi Stringer she did a great job and she is so beautiful and gorgeous and I’m gonna give Mortal Kombat 2021 reboot a 9/10 stars I didn’t like there wasn’t nothing at the end of the movie I guess they might get a sequel but we will never own for sure but overall I still enjoy the film for what it was giving but that just me though and I’m a huge fan of Mortal Kombat and I can’t not wait to buy it on 4K
