Everything wrong with the Mortal Kombat movie in 7 minutes or less

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • January 29, 2014 at 10:47 a.m. PST

The original Mortal Kombat film is a cult classic, but it may have glossed over a few details that wouldn't exactly hold up if those events actually happened in real life.

These fantasy aspects and the suspension of disbelief are often important things in modern Hollywood films to make a motion picture actually work, but if you're someone who enjoys poking fun at some of the more ridiculous parts of movies, this clip from CinemaSins will be right up your alley.

After the jump, you'll find a video which breaks down everything that's wrong with the first Mortal Kombat film in 7 minutes or less.

Video from CinemaSins. Tip from Blackoshinomi.

But I kind of liked the movie. (Minus Sub Zero and Scorpion getting killed. That killed me inside a bit).

Still the GOAT live-action Hollywood-produced video game movie.

Because it's not real life.

I do love this YT series for comedic value, but people who are really like that with movies are annoying.

I love Cinema Sins. I love having my childhood ripped apart and my present-day life's eyes opened as to miniscule things I've never seen before.

Please, for the love of god, let there be someone who agrees with me here.

I remember when it first came and I was so hype. I watched it with friends after school and I thought it was so cool.

But I still suck at MK to this day thanks to the block button.

I don't like this series. Only a few of them were actually mistakes in the movie, and the rest could be explained easily. This is the case with previous episodes I've watched.

Not gonna bother with it ever again.

I don't care much for the videos of this series for the simple fact they complain about everything that is their opinion and not facts. Color of the costume isn't their preference? Then the costume sucks. Random passerby had a weird had? Then this movie falls apart. I really just dislike it because there are hardly any real in depth reasons to why it supposedly sucks. And that goes for any movie they do.

That bit with Reptile was the best part of the movie, the way they introduced him made me jizz

They hate on good movies too. The point of CinemaSins is to constantly nitpick at things for fun, it's not meant to be taken seriously at all. They even say that half the stuff they poke fun at isn't even really a problem, just something that people overlook because it's, like they said, not truly an issue.

It's like the Onion News Network for Movie Reviews, though less satire and more nitpick.

At SqueakyBloom and sarif2soon SIghhhhhhh

The whole point of the series is for you to notice things in a movie that you might have never notice before !

It's not necessarily saying the movie is bad !

That's why it say everything wrong with. His opinion i might add ...

lol, I also remember college humor once did something similar about how inconsistent the tournament brackets work on Mortal Kombat.

No movie is without sin

It's actually called "Control (Juno Reactor Instrumental) by Traci Lords (Yes, that Traci Lords)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mortal_K...

No track on that list called "Scorpion's Theme".

#29
Teinted_Gene said on January 29, 2014 at 9:05 p.m.

defintely, it also matched up with the MK mythos that Reptile was indeed a 'hidden character' and you had to 'figure out' the secret to fighting him.

The movie did a great job in that respect.

Btw: Mortal Kombat all time best Game Movie.

#30
Teinted_Gene said on January 29, 2014 at 9:07 p.m.

"Survivor" (reality show) Theme Song

ninja_philosopher said on January 29, 2014 at 10:11 p.m.

Exactly. & for the same reason, i have not watched this video in the first place. watched two of their videos before. plenty idiotic reasoning just for the sake of show off i think or their serious lack of knowledge regarding the content.

#32
Blackoshinomi said on January 30, 2014 at 4:44 a.m.

I know that ? it was stil Scorpion's Theme though..

#33
RandomJohn said on January 30, 2014 at 8:45 p.m.

What? The guy who made Mortal Kombat into a movie is the same guy who made the Resident Evil series? I guess this guy is known to make crappy video game movies

I re-watched both movies a few years ago. MK is a fun cheesy b-movie and I realized MK: Annihilation was a bad Power Rangers Movie.

I played back the part when they played the SURVIVOR theme several times!!!!!
