Hi, y’all, I know it’s been a while I wrote here, and that’s because I have been so busy of late. Here’s what’s up though, I have seen Mortal Kombat 2, and here’s what I think about it, happy reading!
Mortal Kombat 2, the highly anticipated new adaptation of the video game franchise, reviewed and corrected by director Simon McQuoid and producer James Wan, is out; came out on the 16th of April, 2021.
In “Mortal Kombat 2,” MMA fighter Cole Young, accustomed to taking a beating for money, is unaware of his heritage–or why Outworld’s Emperor Shang Tsung has sent his best warrior, Sub-Zero, an otherworldly Cryomancer, to hunt Cole down.
Fearing for his family’s safety, Cole goes in search of Sonya Blade at the direction of Jax, a Special Forces Major who bears the same strange dragon marking Cole was born with. Soon, he finds himself at the temple of Lord Raiden, an Elder God and the protector of Earthrealm, who grants sanctuary to those who bear the mark.
Here, Cole trains with experienced warriors Liu Kang, Kung Lao, and rogue mercenary Kano, as he prepares to stand with Earth’s greatest champions against the enemies of Outworld in a high-stakes battle for the universe.
Will Cole be pushed hard enough to unlock his arcana–the immense power from within his soul–in time to save not only his family but to stop Outworld once and for all?
To keep up with the hype around the film, Warner Bros released a new video dedicated to the choreography of the film’s fights. It is also the opportunity to discover the incarnations of Major Jax Briggs (Mehcad Brooks) or Sub-Zero (Joe Taslim).
Based on the feature below, we’re already reassured that this Mortal Kombat 2 adaptation will present a much more faithful portrayal of games than previous’ 90s films – not just because of the unsweetened violence, but because she seems to really care about the fantastic aspects of the show.
