i never knew i’d be turned on by metallic biceps.
ay yi yi.
everyone was excited about “mortal kombat” being released.
for many millennials like myself,
we grew up on that video game.
I am a Street Fighter guy.
mortal kombat had too many damn buttons to remember shit.
while doing coding just to do a fatality.
i don’t know much about the lore,
but i know some of the main characters and well…
(heavy on the spoilers)
WHO TF IS COLE?
i ain’t never heard of no damn cole in that game.
this new addition was wack af.
his powers were an all-over body shield?
when he launched that weak-ass uppercut his daughter asked him to do,
i damn near fell out.
i give the movie a 6 outta 10.
it’s mid tbh.
i only give it a 6 because of the action involved.
the storyline felt rushed and it didn’t give us any reason to connect with the characters.
why am i cheering on these randoms trying to fight to save the world?
sonja blade wasn’t memorable,
i wanted more of lui kang’s dragon than him…
…don’t even get me started on the missing “johnny cage”,
and all the other “huh?” that went on as time did.
What happened to the baby that Raiden took after Scorpion died?
i’m also confused why kano‘s annoying ass turned bad so quickly?
i was like this is all it took to switch sides?
i was ready for him to go anyway because he was giving me maga main.
the only person we could connect with was scorpion.
i don’t even understand why cole was fighting with him in the end tbh.
he shoulda sat there and dethawed his family.
i see why the mortal kombat stans have been dragging it to hell and back.
if you’re looking for mindless nonsense to watch,
then i’d tune into hbo max to check it out for free.
if you want something with a bit more character development,
i’d look somewhere else.
lowkey: they didn’t even give metal biceps much screentime.
there was legit not a lot of eye candy in that movie either.
