Storyline

MMA fighter Cole Young (Lewis Tan), accustomed to taking a beating for money, is unaware of his heritage-or why Outworld's Emperor Shang Tsung (Chin Han) has sent his best warrior, Sub-Zero (Joe Taslim), an otherworldly Cryomancer, to hunt Cole down. Fearing for his family's safety, Cole goes in search of Sonya Blade (Jessica McNamee) at the direction of Jax (Mehcad Brooks), 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 (Tadanobu Asano), 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 (Ludi Lin), Kung Lao (Max Huang) and rogue mercenary Kano (Josh Lawson), as he prepares to stand with Earth's greatest champions against the enemies of Outworld in a high stakes battle for the universe. But will Cole be pushed hard enough to unlock his arcana-the immense power from within his soul-in time to save not... Written by Warner Bros.

My (bloody) dreams have become true
19 April 2021 | by sissivaleriaSee all my reviews

I have been fan of Mortal Kombat for a few years, and this movie is perfect for the videogame, if you know the history and characters you will be excited if you watch it, since the cast, story and fights are exactly what I imagined. Mortal Kombat is cheesy in its way, and I love that they captured that, but some people could not understand this. Anyways, I cannot wait for the second part of this movie.

(Ps: Sorry if my English is not that good, but I needed to talk about this movie)
