Your mind tricks won't harm me!!!
Get over here! Watch the trailer for Mortal Kombat now — in theaters and streaming exclusively on HBO Max April 16.
yep, that's the point, this movie is just and adaptation of the franchise, so, the producers and director have the power to make some things pretty different, with the creativity freedom and artistic liberty they have on hands .... I mean, is very naive to pretend that they could follow 100% with the source material , oh , that will never happen .... they will take aspects of the videogame, but, will change and put different stuff all the time ..... I'm ok with that, if, in the end, the movie turns to be entertainment , fun and half decentI'm excited to see Mortal Kombat is trending on Twitter. I REALLY hope this movie does well enough to warrant a trilogy or maybe even a series on HBO Max.
It's delightfully cheesy. I expected some things to be ripped from the games' stories, but I'm happy to see they're taking a semi-fresh approach to it. It makes it less predictable for people who have read / played the games over and over and know every little detail.
BUT there are also moments or characters that the people who are long-time / devoted fans could still get hype over.
I feel like some hardcore MK fans are going to be upset that the movie isn't an exact retelling of the story. But how many times do we need to see the same story retold in almost the exact same way?
We've seen this story played out so many times now lmao. Let's hope they add a unique and entertaining twist.
