I remember the original Mortal Kombat video game. Back in the early 90's it was immensely violent and supernatural. It was the first video game where the characters had true to life faces (so when a head was being ripped off it felt real and intensified the violence). These two themes (violence and the supernatural) have been a constant in every video game, movie or TV series with the MK title over the last >20 years.< In fact these two themes are what a lot of people identify MK with. Without them Mortal Kombat loses its identity (Van Dam in Street fighter anyone --i know, i know this one doesn't suck b***s).
Actually Ed Boon and John Tobias the creators of Mortal Kombat weren't involved in these shorts. But if Kevin Tancharoen is successful in his bid to be the next director of MK they will be apparently, so I hope they ad in all the traditional elements.
Good short, Im hoping next they can re-do xmen and instead of bone claws wolverine can have knives stitched to his hands and a bipolar disorder to make it more 'true to life' and 'real' ;)
