    Can't still not fathom that Keanu wanted to do Wolverine but is too old.

    Okay, kids: we need a poll or some sort of ranking of the coolest Mortal Kombat characters. Ever. Do it.

    You forgot Raiden and Scorpion and Baraka, your post is invalid.

    I feel you with the generic robot/woman/ninja. Good call.

    Haven't played the game in years and years, but I would like to see Ten Feet of Crap vs Goro, sounds like a fair fight.

    Just watched it. Nothing good to say about it.

    Watch it while using a device?

    The fights were not original, true to their characters and didn't make any sense after they got their awakenings. This could've saved the movie if the fights were Kong vs Godzilla epic. I mean you spend 100+ millions of dollars but can't imagine a fight scene fans or gamers would enjoy...probably a sign you dumped half of the budget on hookers and blow after the studio greenlit your project.

    Kano had the most personality as an offensive dirtbag, which is a red flag for box office poison.

    Any director who thinks that adding fast cuts every 3 seconds is "slick" and "edgy" needs a groin punch for every quick cut they've inserted and have it posted on tiktok to recoup costs. Putting it in fighting scenes is cheap and lazy. They even used it for cheesy cut and paste dialogue to cover up bad acting.
