Mortal Kombat

Posted the first episode a few weeks ago and then completely forgot to check out the rest as they came out. Here's episode 1-4 of the new Mortal Kombat: Legacy web series.

I found the first three episodes to be pretty enjoyable. Jeri Ryan is still hot after all these years and Michael Jai White is usually a fun actor to watch in a fight. The fact that they made Johnny Cage into a washed up former Power Ranger actor is a hilarious turn.

Then I got to episode four. What a let down.

The show goes from being a somewhat grounded-in-reality(compared to the previous MK movies and TV show) and reverts back to the crazy mystical crap the series has been putting out since the beginning. All I wanted was a bloody tournament filled with psycho's and freaks and some cops with maybe a dash of sci-fi thrown in. This realm invasion/other magical stuff is so old.

  7. Much agreed with your final conclusions. If they went the way of the Batman reboot and stuck to explainable stuff, it would have left a much better aftertaste.
