Leave Your Thoughts About the Mortal Kombat Movie for the Next Retronauts!



We've reached the end of Retronauts Movie Month, which has spanned the length of six weeks thanks to circumstances beyond my control (like a visit from that scoundrel Ron Gilbert). To finish off this series -- possibly not for good -- our next episode will feature 1995's Mortal Kombat, which won over audiences thanks to its willingness to embrace the meatheadedness of the source material. Even though the film's PG-13 rating prevented the blood and guts Mortal Kombat fans had come to expect, it managed pulled in a mean 120 mil -- far more than the thoroughly disappointing Annihilation would earn just a few years later.

As with our past episodes of Movie Month, please leave your thoughts on Mortal Kombat in the comments section below. Did it make your Mortal Monday? Did it fulfill your desire for four-armed interdimensional warrior action? Leave your comments on this blog post before Monday, March 12 at 12:00pm PST!

If you need some inspiration, here's the original trailer:

Re: Leave Your Thoughts About the Mortal Kombat Movie for the Next Retronauts!

Best video game adaption ever. It was MK1 with Kitana and Reptile thrown in. The good guys are good and the bad guys are bad (Hi good Balrog and evil Dee Jay!), it deviates a bit from the original game but not in a way that is bad. It even made Australian Kano kanonincal.

I liked it. It was a very enjoyable movie.
Also: Christopher Lambert as Raiden? Awesome.

Maybe I'm confused but I think you're confused. Reptile is in MK1

I think it's a reference to their portrayal in the Street Fighter movie.

Re: Leave Your Thoughts About the Mortal Kombat Movie for the Next Retronauts!

You're right I see that now. I was just thrown off by the implication that Reptile wasn't in MK1, seemed like his whole post was off.

By Reptile, I mean the whole him being part lizard and turning invisible was a MK2 thing. He was just palette swap ninja #3 in MK1 if you found him

Re: Leave Your Thoughts About the Mortal Kombat Movie for the Next Retronauts!

Nah not barely. You can fight him, he's named and he has his green outfit. The moves aren't right but since he has both the freeze and the spear he's still unique and not just a palette swap. Sorry but I have to nitpick.

When I say palette swap I meant visually. Sub/Scorp/Reptile in the first 2 games are different in terms of game play, but I think it's the same guy in a different colored suit.
