Mortal Kombat 2021: certainly an improvement over MK Annihilation, but full of extremely weird decisions. Felt unfinished in parts?

That is actually quite milder than what we expected the reactions to be.
The fights were great but everything else was lacking lol. Kind of like Mortal Kombat Annihilation, that movie had good fight scenes in it but the movie was trash lol. I gave this a 7/10 though

Hey, that’s our job!
If you want examples, look at these photos regarding those older films and tell me if it’s held up with time #MortalKombatMovie pic.twitter.com/43AmtSYBLS

Worse with age
Yeah, at least the new Mortal Kombat movie’s CGI looks like it’ll stand the test of time, unlike this. . .
I have more respect now for the original Mortal Kombat movie. Because the bad guys were cocky and devious. The new film makes the bad guys feel like they’re afraid to win; when they’ve won THE LAST 9 TOURNAMENTS!

What’s the fun if the villain isn’t rearing to go? Especially in a heavy fighting film. . .
#MortalKombat tied a lot of the video game origin into the movie. Was pleasantly surprised with how much they were able to bring onto the screen. They also added a new character to enhance the story, which I thought worked well. The fan in me was like 😍😳☺️👏🏼 pic.twitter.com/AxgZSZii7s

Get over here!
Adding that bit of dialogue was a nice touch.
if 2021 were a movie, it'd be the new mortal kombat:
looked cool from the trailer, got you hype itd be better than the last one was but then it just doubled down on the dumb shit from the last one and made it worse by being forgettable everywhere else

Do yourself a favor
Hate to break it to you, dude, but not everyone shares your enthusiasm. . .
Is it me or is the main protagonist in the new #MortalKombat movie a lamer version of #BlackPanther? pic.twitter.com/9Jc7TBQSbF

Too soon, dude. Still too soon.
The new Mortal Kombat felt like the exact same caliber of film as the 1995 movie, only made using modern cinematic techniques. The graph tracking quality between these two movies is a straight fucking line and I couldn't be happier

We’re glad you enjoyed the nostalgic feel of the movie at least.
The new Mortal Kombat movie was mediocre lmao. But the Fatalities >>>>
