On the 16th of April 2021, Warner Bros. Pictures will release the much-anticipated Mortal Kombat, and it promises to be a must watch. I believe the fans will love this mortal Kombat reboot.
You would think that with the pandemic and the general ease in businesses across the world, movie makers would take a breather and wait it out. But, on the contrary, the industry has been delivering movies upon movies, and as a movie critic, I’m not complaining.
The Mortal Kombat franchise is not new to critics, as Warner Bros. has always found it difficult to convert the mortal combat video game into film. This year’s edition will not be a part of the previous sequel, but a start to “probably” launch a Mortal Kombat Universe to rival Marvel and DC.
The movie, featuring the same story line but with more focus on the Sub-Zero–Scorpion rivalry, with Kano, Jax, Lui Kang, Kung Lao, Sonya and Lord Raiden to complete the hero list fighting to save our reality.
The trailer which has seen over 2 million view also featured characters like Goro, Mileena, Nitara, Shang Tsung, Kabal and lots more.
This mortal Kombat reboot will also feature a new character named Cole Young. It is most likely that the story will be told from Young’s perspective. The movie would start with Young as he searches for Sonya Blade, hoping to understand the attack he received from Sub Zero.
Soon after they would meet up with Jax, Kung Lao, Lui Kang, Kano and take shelter in the trainings and teachings of Raiden. From there on, our heroes would match on conquering one enemy after another, fighting for survival and getting the Out-world far away from Earth.
Anyway, not to ruin it for you with spoilers, make sure you go see the Mortal Kombat movie because with a story line like that, and so many top actors and characters, plus the intensity from the trailer! I can bet this one is going to be very hard to disappoint the fans.
