Mortal Kombat - Rebirth
I'm trusting that you watched it before you read this as that would probably help. If you haven't then watch it, as its probably the best seven minutes you'll have had since that pity sex on your birthday. Only joking.
I personally think this looks amazing. Mortal Kombat for me has been dragged through glass and shit with its first two movie cash-ins and this looks like the film that intends to pick it up, stitch it up and give it a much needed bath.
Don't get me wrong, the games have always been solid and rarely failed to entertain but the franchise as whole has never really made much of an impact and some of that blame has to be put down to Mortal Kombat: Annihilation.
I blame a lot of things on that film.
As for this latest outing, I'm truly hyped. I've enjoyed everything that I've seen Michael Jai White star in and the general feel of this film is already putting it miles ahead of anything else floating around in the Mortal Kombat toilet.
Its looks dark, it looks slick and most of all it looks pretty damn entertaining.
Oh, and watch Black Dynamite if you haven't seen it. Michael Jai White muthafucka!!!
