mixed feelings
18 April 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

OK rebirth exploded onto the scene and i must of watched it 30 or so times i was amazed at this alternate take on mortal kombat which dared stray away from the myth and magic that has made the game so popular, as camp as the original movie was i loved n still love it the sequel was vomit inducing and the TV series i couldn't stomach, but rebirth was like what batman begins was to batman it was dark gritty realistic and bad ass, the fight scene was so well put together and the idea of scorpion rampaging through fight after fight was an interesting idea.

OK so then we get legacy after reading the first review i think the user was a bit harsh, but first things first this is nothing like rebirth its gone back to the campness of the first movies and so far nothing has really been shown, its laid the foundations of kanos eye and jax arms but thats it so i don't want to be too harsh as yet, but im still waiting for that wow factor to hit.

as yet tho if a movie is to be released i can only hope they follow on from rebirth.

one thing i have noticed tho is that this is being brought to us by netherealm studios and it is sorta a background on the characters for the release of the game i can only hope thats what KT had in mind with it and that his movie project will follow rebirth, anyways sorry for my poor grammar lets hope this series gets better and leaves us drooling at the mouth and the first episode is just a slow starter for somethin epic to follow
