Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms

Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms ★★★

👌🏻65% - Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of The Realms was entertaining but kind of disappointing. I was digging the first 2 acts but then the ending definitely dropped this movie for me. This movie feels like 2 movies crammed into 1. When the film only has an 80 minute runtime they should not be squishing so much into this. They of course do the tournament which is what was advertised but then there was 1 other plot line which can easily take up a whole other film which took up about a 3rd of this movie. Some of the characters got sidelined like Kung Lao and Jax. The character dynamics just weren’t as good as they were in the first movie. I found the pacing to be very rushed here. I thought Scorpion and Sub Zero by far the best character stuff. However I’m still positive with my score because I can watch anything Mortal Kombat and have fun. Even Annihilation but in a different way from how I enjoy the other MK films. I’m just a huge MK fan and I always have been. Since MK movies aren’t common I’ll take what I can get and I will eat it up just because I love seeing the lore being represented. Seeing something so close to your heart represented in film form will always be satisfying in some way.
