Title: MORTAL KOMBAAAAAAAAAT

Looks gloriously daft. Really looking forward to this silliness.

Looks like a film that's too po-faced to be entertaining, but you'll love watching the fights on youtube.

Goro used to scare the shit out of me as a kid, which is hilarious in hindsight considering he's just a naff animatronic puppet costume thing with a gormless face and gets jobbed right quick.

at least it looks like peopole are going to get shitted up bad style in daft ways which is all you need, any idea what the rating is? the trailers dogshit but I hope they've had to just make it that way with the Inception and Marvel pacing since every other trailer for the past ten years has done it.

To be honest, not sure if madhair's being sarcastic but I liked that trailer and want to see the film at some point. This will probably be my only contribution to this thread, I'm glad it's controversial as I am the Hitchens of film trailer reactions (either of the cunts).

I'm not. I'm under no illusion that this will be some sort of masterpiece, but I'm a big MK fan and I think this looks fun as hell.

It looks dreadful but at least it is actually R rated and contains blood, gore and fatalities; you know, the one thing the games are known for and the one thing the first two cinematic adaptations completely left out.  All the gore in the world won't stop the movie from being a stinker though, of course.

This is actually untrue. The more gore, the better the film. That is why the best film ever made is Guinea Pig 2.

Google decided to show me now. My fake ID seemed to fool it so I could watch it and buy ciggies from offy.

I don't know, the trailer looks so clichéd. Why bother with a narative? Everyone's only in it to see ninjas beat seven bells out of each other. Just make it none stop fights, like the arcade game.

This is the thing.  I just don't see the point in movie adaptations of action based videogames.  I don't understand why some people watch them.  Vat is point?  No, seriously; what is the fucking point?  You play Sonic the Hedgehog or Mortal Kombat for the gameplay.  Who the fuck is playing those games for the story?!  The demographic of people who go to watch things like this baffles me.  One long, terribly written cutscene with occasional mediocre actions scenes peppered throughout and piss poor, low budget effects, with none of the gameplay which makes those games engaging.  I just do not understand the appeal at all.

Slightly worried that the entire film seems to take place in near-darkness and just consists of everybody introducing themselves to each other. Also they seem to have cast people based on martial arts ability, which could be good or bad (in fairness, the first film's cast largely avoided making picks from the ham counter, except Christopher Lambert). Certainly nothing in the trailer to make it look good, but you could say the same of Bicycle Thieves or White Material.

a Mortal Kombat film doesn't really need much else, i've played most of the games and could not tell you what it's about beyond island tournament with nutters. But from what i've retained through the power of memory is most of it's fucking split these people open in insane complicated ways because island tournament, just have everyone smoking and swearing and talking exposition and telling each other to fuck off and Scooter soundtrack and Johnny Cage saying THIS IS SOME REEEEAL FUCKIN X FILES BULL MOTHER FUCKING SHIT MAN

Worst part of all the MK films and tv shows is the boring tournament stuff. Just have the goodies trying to hunt down a team of killer ninjas or something. Then in the final scene, Raiden appears and says, "Ah now you must save Outworld from an army ahhhh".

Why not just watch a good film with tons of gore though?  Such as Peter Jackson's Braindead.  That way you get amazing practical gore effects by the bucket load and a tight, entertaining script with engaging characters and dialogue.  Really can't see what's to be gained by watching a shitty adaptation of a fighting game with crap CG blood that's been added in post-production.

Probably not. These trailers often use pre-finalised renders, before fancy lighting and effects have been added. See also: the first Jurassic World trailer (or possibly teaser, I forget) which had terrible, fake-looking CGI gates.

Anyway, the film looks annoyingly po-faced, but I liked it when Sub-Zero turned that blood spurt into an ice-pick dagger. If the violence is creative and fun, it might be semi-watchable, although as mentioned above, it'll probably be best to just wait till all the fights are on YouTube and watch them individually without any of that plot nonsense getting in the way.

Agreed. The sequel is kinda fun too.

Anyone remember the TV series? Where they knew they were getting cancelled, so the bad guys won and enslaved humanity? That was a heck of an ending.

I also watched most of the web series, "Legacy". It looked good, and the fights were decent, but it had a bad case of blue balls in that it kept not being about the actual tournament but was all buildup (it may have got to the point a bit after I stopped watching, but I'd stopped caring by then).
