SPOLER ALERT: New character as the protagonist didn’t really work out. He was totally unnecessary. The movie didn’t have an actual MK tournament! The movie felt rushed towards the end. Other than that it was good. Best characters: Kano and Sub-zero. Overall, the movie delivers a good dose of nostalgia but could’ve been better.

I was excited when I heard the news, especially when I read that James Wan (Insidious, The Conjuring) was going to be a producer for the reboot. I had my reservations, of course, due to the negative depiction of many video games or anime shows that were brought to real life. Mortal Kombat (2021) is by far the best video game depicted movie I’ve ever watched. No dull moment, character development wasn’t over barring and the story was a great new take for the franchise. P.S. Kano may have stole the show surprisingly!

This movie stunk. I think the low budget did them in. Jumped all over the place and had no real storyline. Hot garbage.

Special effects were good at some points. Only reason I saw this movie was for the scorpion and sub zero fight. Horrible plot. Bad acting.

Story is rushed, does not give a lot of detail on how and why. Some iconic characters died way too easy. Definitely not bad but story should have been flushed out.

If You go in for the fight scenes then this movie delivers. Not too much of a plot though. Overall it was a decent movie.

I had mixed feelings about this. The back story's on Sub Zero and Scorpion were awesome though a bit different from what we've already seen. Not too happy about how they made a few of the characters seem weak. All of them are powerful and they should have shown that. Overall, I'd see it again because I love everything MK, and I hope that the sequel (if they get the green light to make it) is better than this and can out do all that has already been done.

Not a perfect entry but a worthy successor to the Mortal Kombat lore with fun action and fatalities that live up to the hype.

Went into this movie with an open mind and high hopes...sadly it left me wanting more...a few really funny moments,choppy action sequences that made it hard to follow at times and the fights came and went with fun fatalities but were over too fast with the exception of final fight with sub zero..not great but a decent movie

How do you not add the original theme song to something legendary like MK, that's like Jason Bourne movie ending without Moby- extreme ways...

Fighters' special powers had cool effects, but, overall, the original had a better plot than this one. Remake has better actors and effects. I was SO pumped to watch this, but felt a bit disappointed as I left the theater.

Though the ending makes it clear that this movie’s purpose is largely to set up future Mortal Kombat movies, it still stands well enough on its own, and it benefits from not looking as cheap or as cheesy as its 1990s predecessors.

Frankly, the original Mortal Kombat arcade game had a better sense of narrative momentum; at least there the fights progressed toward a final showdown with the big bosses. Without spoiling this Mortal Kombat, it mostly feels like a giant prologue to something else. Still, for sheer visual panache, intricate fight scenes, and the fact that it’s not an out-and-out embarrassment, Mortal Kombat rates very highly on the list of video game movies.

A B-movie that would benefit immensely from some wit in the script and charisma in the cast, it’s not as aggressively hacky as P.W.S.A.’s oeuvre, but it runs into problems he didn’t face in 1995: Namely, the bar has been raised quite a bit for movies in which teams of superpowered young people have fights to save the universe.
