The kingdom of Mortal Kombat began in Japan in the 17th century when Bi Han/Sub Zero killed Hanzo Hasashi and his relatives (Joe Taslim). Like fate, the child of Hasashi survives the carnage and Lord Raiden is taken into safe care (Tadanobu Asano).
Here, you will be able to see the protagonist and descendant of Cole Young (Lewis Tan), who is a mixed martial artist beyond his high level, and who has the dragon sign on his body (the logo of the game) but who thinks that it is a sign of birth and does not realize its power until one day Sub Zero returns to the world to eliminate the remaining champions in front of the next Mortal Kombat
Many who have played Mortal Kombat since their teens are well aware that the video game offers nothing in the way of plot. We all grabbed the controllers to gore our enemies, only to hear the eternal words, “Finish him!” ” However, if you decide to go ahead with a film adaptation, it isn’t a bad idea to give it a shot.
Mortal Kombat simply plods along, from scene to scene and one mundane dialogue to the next, before launching into yet another pointless action sequence. Kano seems to be the sole bright spot (a very funny Josh Lawson). To make matters worse, there isn’t a Mortal Kombat tournament because Shang Tsung, The Outworld’s evil leader, wants to destroy all champions before the tournament can take place, which seems strange given that The Outworld has won nine of the previous ten tournaments with the Earth realm. Do you have a lot of doubts?
One appealing feature is that, unlike the Avengers or the MCU, there is no reluctance to kill off characters; the fighters are disposable, and when the sequel is released, we will see more interesting characters emerge from the script.
Shang Tsung promises to bring armies to the Earth realm next, near the end. But, when that happens, let’s hope there’s more of a character arc, storyline, and just cause to these battles. Otherwise, we’d be stuck with yet another film that’s nothing more than a stale montage of training videos, cliched dialogue, and mindless action.
