Mortal Kombat

Mortal Kombat ★½

It’s amusing that the main character’s ability is literally plot armor. As with most video game movies, this really felt like a proof of concept movie - it’s like they just decided to blow all the budget on the more iconic characters while disregarding almost everything else, all while shoehorning in an original character with no purpose whatsoever. For a movie with the fights as it’s main selling point, they aren’t that great either.

I’ll give it an extra 1/2 star purely for not managing to bore me because the amount of cheese in this is actually hilarious. And Kano was actually portrayed well.
