Video game films are generally pretty hit and miss and in some cases just downright bad. A lot of the time the source material is used liberally and the more fantastical stuff is just ignored, or in the case of Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, so over the top that it’s badly comical. Not the case in the new Mortal Kombat, it’s true to the games, fantastical in part but grounded and it’s a bloody romp ( literally)
What was a pretty unchanged game over 4 decades has now, ironically, been given a new lease of life with the addition of Zombies. A 3rd dimension that really creates a sense of tension and uncertainty within a gain that already is quite tense at times.
