Mortal Kombat is an American martial arts fantasy film. It is based on the video game franchise of the same name created by Ed Boon and John Tobias, serving as a reboot to the Mortal Kombat film series. In the 17th century, Bi Han, an assassin for the Lin Kuei clan with ice powers, attacks and kills Hanzo Hasashi and his family. The only survivor is Hanzo's infant daughter, who is taken away by the thunder god Raiden, the protector of Earthrealm.
In the modern era, Outworld has won nine consecutive Mortal Kombat tournaments against Earthrealm and just needs one more victory in the next tournament to conquer Earthrealm. The Outworld sorcerer Shang Tsung orders his warriors to seek out and eliminate Earthrealm's champions, who bear a dragon mark on their bodies, in order to ensure Earthrealm has no chance in the upcoming tournament.
Awesome fights, solid acting, and really good CGI surprisingly. With the budget they had, the movie looked amazing. Possibly the best video game movie ever but that goes to Detective Pikachu. The cast for the new Mortal Kombat movie looks like a fantastic mix of actors, most of who are very well known in the martial arts genre and others for their outstanding work in various forms of TV and theatre screen media, even martial artist/actor/stuntman Chris Casamassa that played Scorpion in the original 1995 movie is cast in it which is awesome.
Sets a new standard for video game movies to come and it will only get better. But objectively for the majority, has its flaws but overall pretty good and a fun-time, which is understandable and good enough. A fantastic adaptation of the games with a decent story, great cinematography, good, yet noticeable CGI, amazing voice acting, a great soundtrack, and good editing.
