Paul W.S Anderson directed the movie Mortal Kombat. The movie stars Robin Shou, Linden Ashby, Bridgette Wilson, and many more. The films also served as a loose adaption of the first Mortal Kombat game and first of the Mortal Kombat film series. Overall, the movie also received decent reviews, made the right amount of money, and spawned a sequel.
Five Reason Why It Is One Of The Best Movie
Mortal Kombat Game– Many fans of the movie watched the movie because of the game, which was launched back then. Playing the game also turned many people into a Kombat nut, and they tried the movie to see how it was. The fans did like the movie of how it was corny, ridiculous, and special effects.
Mortal Kombat Stays The True Source Material– It does make some changes here and there, but the overall tone is still the same. The sound of Mortal Kombat is basically like Enter The Dragon meets big trouble in Little China. There are powerful gods, Shaolin Monks, blind guys, and magic swords.
Because Of Violent Gameplay– The brutalities and the fatalities from the game, which also spit out the lunch, made people watch the movie. Johnny Cage’s deaths and gruesome, but he makes jokes when he is upper-cutting someone’s head off. He is a fan-favorite of the series because he cracks jokes and makes the opponent angry.
Villain Like Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa– One of the reasons could be because of the acting skills of the villain in the movie. He captured everything that makes a villain so great. And makes the people want to see him get the worst fatality. Tagawa made Shang Tsung the cunning, deceiving sorcerer which we recognize from games.
The Crazy Action– This is one of the best formulae of a game. If you are a fan of martial arts, video games, then the movie will be sparking your interest. It does the character justice, delivers some great action scenes and incredible music.
Video games should take some notes from the movie because it respects its source material.
