Movies adapted by games are often terrible. I’m talking Warcraft and the Tomb Raider movies, Monster Hunter and Assassin’s Creed, etc. I’ve never seen a film based off of a game that had me absolutely thrilled. Now, this month on April 23, we’re getting a new-and-improved Mortal Kombat film and it’s got people excited. But do I think it will break the game-movie curse? Not in the slightest. Here’s the trailer.
I watched the trailer last month and I thought it looked ridiculous. The actors chosen to portray these characters, the dialogue, the only thing this trailer got right was the violence because Mortal Kombat is pretty much the most violent game I’ve ever played. So yeah, the trailer displayed an accurate amount of goriness.
Besides that, this movie looks ridiculous…and not in a fun way. But I will be watching it on April 23 so I can just laugh at the absurdity. I’m just honestly hoping it’s better than Godzilla vs. Kong because that movie bugged me so badly.
I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.
