Atom User Reviews for Mortal Kombat
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.
Continue the MKU make another MK it was super good! We need a Sequel 💯
LOVE THE VIDEO GAME REFERENCES
The last 30min is rush.
This movie could have been so much 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!
if you dont see this in theaters your missing out.
This movie stunk. I think the low budget did them in. Jumped all over the place and had no real storyline. Hot garbage.
a real sleeper
I felt like they really brought the feel of the game into this movie! Not a disappointment
Dont go for an amazing story, go for a bloody, violent, fun time.
movie was ok, mostly action fight scenes no real story
I've seen all of them and this one by far has taken it to the next level bravo
I really loved it the fight scenes were great but the movie was a little rushed in but I did enjoy it
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.
It was so refreshing to see this movie! I'm so glad that they didn't stay from the original storyline. The backstory was awesome. I will see this again.
It was good a really was not able to watch it because there was kid screaming and crying the whole time
Loved it from start to finish! Hope the second one is just as good or even better!
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.
It's ok if you like mortal combat.
Only two scenes were worth my time the rest was pretty corny
Not enough action but the story line was decent
We have an origin movie that was fine and fun. Casting was great except for Mileena. Kano steals the show.
Good movie if you can handle a boring main character
if you can, see it in Imax. nothing compares
great story line
A little corny at points, but over all it was pretty good!
Old school with a modern visuals.
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
Just want I wanted to see!
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...
Amazing movie, was not a disappointment. Definitely watching it again.
For the fans.
GET OVER HERE !! TO WATCH
trash script and story. please stop making actors to say phrase from the actual game
the scorpion and sub zero fights were good and Kano was golden
It really wasn't what I thought it was going to be the last 30 minutes seemed to rush
I missed the show
Wholesome family entertainment! If you are a fan of the franchise, you'll love it. If you're not, take grandma, she'd love it.
Entertaining. Exactly what I expected from a Mortal Kombat movie.
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.
the movie was the bomb. very cool. awesome.
One of the beat martial art movies of this year. If you love the Mortal Kombat games, you will love this movie.
good remake of the video game franchise
All the feels and nostalgia!!!
It had action ,was very bloody so it is not for kids.It did not move as well as it should have but will tell people I known to see it.
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.
