The film caused a lot of controversy in social media. networks, but everyone can definitely agree with one thing – fatalities and other abilities of the heroes were able to recreate at a high level.
The new film “Mortal Kombat” tells about life Cole Young, which plays a key role in the events leading up to the 10th Death Tournament. Shang Tsung together with the forces of the Outer World invades the Earthly Realm and threatens its implementation.
A lot of the fighters we know from the games appear in the film. For the most part, their character and appearance are perfectly conveyed, and some especially stand out from the crowd. Wherein Cole Young fits organically into the universe and interacts with other characters. Overall, Simon McQuoid has done a wonderful job of bringing the fierce warriors to the big screen.
If someone has not yet understood what kind of character Cole Young is – this is a direct descendant of Scorpio. The character was specially invented in the reboot of the Mortal Kombat cinematic universe, in order to begin to build a plot around him and offer the audience something new.
Shang Tsung – an evil sorcerer who provoked the invasion of the Outworld into the Earthly Realm. He seeks to kill all the warriors fighting for humanity before the start of the tenth Mortal Kombat tournament.
Thanks to this, the Outside World can emerge victorious, and the Earthly Kingdom will be enslaved.
Appearance and evil motives Shang Zong correlate with the playable character. However, the film showed only a small part of the powers and capabilities of this powerful magician. In the continuation of the film, he should be given more screen time and fully disclosed.
Milina – a clone of Shao Kahn’s adopted daughter, Kitanaand a flawless Outworld warrior. It was created by Shang Tsung during his crazy experiments.
The character’s story is largely unknown, but her impressive abilities and terrifying Tarkatan mouth were still shown in the film.
Mileena teleports to enemies with ease and delivers quick attacks with her signature blades. Unfortunately, due to the lack of a storyline, new viewers learn too little about it. In addition, they do not understand why this character is significant in the Mortal Kombat universe.
Warrior with a hat named Kung Lao – close friend Liu Kang and ward Raiden… His abilities are demonstrated to the maximum: the film even shows epic fatality in a duel against Nitara. In addition, the huge influence of the character on the development of the storyline is reflected Kano…
Liu Kang mainly talks about Kung Lao’s past. In the film, the hero demonstrates teleportation, which is similar to his game combo.
Sonya Blade and her partner Jax brings together a rich military background. She learned very early what the essence of the “Mortal Kombat” tournament is. The fighting style of the girl in the film is similar to that shown in the games.
In the film, she fights side by side with the rest of the characters, although initially she was not supposed to take part in the tournament. Toward the end of the film, she was still able to get a special label and discover abilities in herself – energy rings.
In film Jax many changes await. Ever since his hands were crushed by Sub-Zero, the new mechanical prostheses looked too unremarkable. However, Jax gained tremendous power when he tried to remove a large piece of the statue from Sonya.
Since then fighting style Jax matches his ability in video games. He defeats Reiko, commits barbaric fatality and even makes his own brand grip…
Liu Kang appears to lead to an ancient temple Kano, Sonya and Cole… There they plan to train to prepare for the tournament. Liu is one of the most gifted fighters and Raiden has the greatest hopes on him.
Liu Kang is just as adept at using his ability to control fire as his game prototype. It launches Fire ball in Kano, applies Bicycle kick and summons a powerful fire dragon (fatality Fire Beast) to win Bondage…
Kano – a mercenary and head of the Black Dragon cartel. First he is introduced as a prisoner Sony… She captured him after he killed one of the chosen warriors of the Earthrealm. Kano behaves in exactly the same way as his game prototype would. The hero is not reliable and constantly makes sharp jokes.
Kano is excellent with a knife, and after a fight with Kung Lao he has a laser eye. At the decisive moment, he betrays the warriors of the Earth Kingdom and joins Shang Tsung… Mercenary once – mercenary always.
Many abilities Raiden practically were not shown in the film. However, the creators hint that the hero is extremely strong. Raiden show only in defense, and also demonstrate his superior ability to teleport himself and others between worlds. The sequel will definitely have more time to showcase Raiden’s powers.
Viewers will likely see the fight between him and Shang Tsung. At the end of the film, it is clear that despite the heavy losses, the evil sorcerer is not going to stop wreaking havoc.
Heartbreaking becoming Scorpion is shown in the first scene and is referred to throughout the film.
For the first time, many fans of the series learned this backstory, it had not been filmed before (you can see in more detail in the cool cartoon Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge)
The Shirai Ryu clan is attacked by the Lin Kuei and Bi Han warriors. At the same time, Hanzo Hasashi dies after trying to save his family. Hanzo makes his way through Hell and gains the great power of fire. At the end of the film, his trademark “Get over here” is heard, and the magnificent fatality is demonstrated to perfection.
Bi Hanwho took his name Sub Zero (who eventually became Noob Saibot) is portrayed beautifully throughout the film. In the very first seconds, we see Bi Khan as a cold-blooded assassin destroying the Shirai Ryu clan.
Sub Zero – the main antagonist in the film despite the fact that he acts under the direction Shang Zong… Viewers are teased about the impending battle between him and Scorpio right down to the very end. Sub-Zero has been worked out to the smallest detail, and his abilities are as similar to the game as possible.
Write in the comments, how do you like the new movie? Were you satisfied with the fatalities in the game and, in general, with the implementation of the heroes.
