They’re Going All In With an Animated Mortal Kombat Movie, Apparently

I just heard of this movie and I think it’s rather silly. The people behind Mortal Kombat are coming out with a new straight-to-DVD animated film called Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge. I think the idea is pretty cool, but the execution looks tame.

From that trailer, it looks like they’re just going to do the first Mortal Kombat tournament all over again. How many times do we need this event portrayed? Why does everybody think that’s the most interesting story in Mortal Kombat lore? Hell, the title of the film is about Scorpion, and he seems to be a major player in the movie…why not just do that?

Do the people behind Mortal Kombat really think we care about Liu Kang, Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade? When you’ve got a cool story like that of Scorpion vs. Sub-Zero, why would anybody want Liu Kang to show up?

Last year, I did my own write-up on a plot for a Mortal Kombat movie, one that focused on the second Sub-Zero. He’s a far more interesting character with a far more interesting story than any of the regular Earth realmers. Just putting it out there!

Scorpion’s Revenge comes out this spring.
