Was a couple previous movies.  I enjoyed them myself.

 

Anyway, this looks good.  I remember playing the original game back on the PC in the 90s.

I liked the 'hint' of the original theme song at the end of the trailer.

Anyhow, I'm greatly looking forward to this. Should be mindless fun.

If the original theme doesn't come up in the movie die hard fans will rage.

I picked up on it in the trailer but sometimes they use things only in the trailers so who knows?  They should at least use the original in the credits.

I have seen over 2,350+ movies and I was playing MK2/MK3/UMK3 in the arcades in the 1994-1996 time frame and all (hell, I even seen the original 1995 movie the first day of release in the theaters on Aug 18th 1995 with my cousin(who also liked the games quite a bit to)), which are still hands down my favorites of the series to this very day as those are just better/more fun than the 3D era etc.

 

but anyways, the most obvious negative I see with this new Mortal Kombat (2021) movie given my impression of the trailer is it feels a bit too generic (but at the same time I never expected much from it given it would be hard to do fairly well). but with that said... you can see they are trying to go more for a R rating this time around by increasing violence to match that of the video games. but at the end of the day... I suspect most mortal kombat fans in general will still probably consider the 1995 movie to be the best of the mortal kombat types of movies.

 

still, ill probably give the Mortal Kombat (2021) movie a shot at some point as I figure it might be worth seeing once, if for nothing else than my nostalgia of the video games and the like. but putting aside the 1995/1997 Mortal Kombat movies, this one might be the next best, but who knows ;)

 

but in all honesty... I was never a big fan of the Mortal Kombat (1995) movie even though I always did like it (I was a huge fan of the 2D video games though, especially MK2/MK3/UMK3 which I played in the arcades in the old days etc). but based on my most recent re-watch of the 1995 movie in Oct 2019 (Dec 2015 was my previous re-watch), while I still like it, it's just barely as it's mainly for nostalgia sake that I still re-watch it here and there. with that said... while Mortal Kombat: Annihilation (1997) seems to be quite disliked, I still sort of like in a way as it's bad but somewhat in a good way (still, not as bad as it's 3.7/10 average (47,251 votes) on IMDb along with being in the BOTTOM rated movies @ #79 says) because in the past I liked the 1995 movie more than the 1997 movie but at least based on my most recent viewings of each (1995 movie I re-watched in Oct 2019 and the 1997 movie in Aug 2020 (which was the first time I re-watched the 2nd movie in a long time)) I can't say I prefer one over the other. but I can see that based on more standard ways of what people would consider quality they will obviously default to the 1995 movie over the 1997 movie. but I think part of the 1997 movies appeal for me is it's sort of one of those movies that 'so-bad-it's-good' sort of things. I gave the 1995 and 1997 Mortal Kombat movies a 6/10 (a mild Thumbs Up (which makes them good enough to re-watch here and there as the years pass)) as my general goal in watching movies is to find movies I want to re-watch from time-to-time and in this regard only about 20% of all movies I have seen managed to pull that off even though only about 6.5% (or 8.5% if I count movies that are just shy of favorites) of everything I have seen is good enough to be among my favorites movies in general.

 

p.s. for the record... there is 154 movies (201 if I count movies just shy of being favorite movie status) out of the 2,350+ total movies I have seen. NOTE: favorite movies begin at a 7/10 for me (and movies I consider just shy of a favorite score a 6-6.5/10). anything I score a 5/10 or less is a Thumbs Down (i.e. not enjoyable enough to warrant future re-watches and like I mentioned a movies true worth is whether I want to re-watch it from time-to-time as the years pass or not).
