Meat and Potatoes

     

The new “Mortal Kombat” is in theaters this week and already has three strikes against it in my book. #1 It is a Reboot, and Reboots hardly ever work. #2 it has hardly any recognizable actors in it and #3 when has a video game movie ever been halfway decent? So, I am going in not expecting much but at least hoping for some good fight scenes, I hope.

*The MEAT* The story is *Missing* just absolutely missing. I mean you cannot try to make sense of this story. All I ask for is to keep my interests in the characters and their outcomes just a little bit. And unfortunately, it cannot do that.

*The POTATOES* The acting is *Horrendous* I’m sorry I know I seem to be a tad bit harsh here, but it really was THAT BAD.

*The VERDICT* When it comes to video game movies, I can say “Mortal Kombat” is right up there with the rest of them and that is *Not Good*. The fights and special effects were subpar to say the least, even Goro looked like a victim of a cheap TV show budget. Now there are some good shout-outs to the video games that might make a few fans happy, but there is no way I can recommend this film for the theater. Make sure to watch it from home, so you can turn the channel.

Everyone, Please Stay Safe…

Stay Healthy…

And as always… Stay Geeky!
