I saw Mortal Kombat on HBO Max. I was waiting for a tournament and it didn't have one. I guess if this one is popular and sequels are made then a tournament will happen. Probably not going to happen.
What a disappointment. The 1995 movie is so much better, thanks to the performance of Christopher Lambert and Cary Hiroyuki Tagawa. Cary Hiroyuki Tagawa defined Shang "Your Soul is Mine" Tsung, that subsequent video games based Shang Tsung off his interpretation.
The similar event in the new movie can be described as so feeble.
The saving grace in the 2021 movie is Joe Taslim who does Sub Zero. Hiroyuki Sanada is miscast here. He should have been Shang Tsung. You have to take the most senior and best actor in your entire cast to play the villain, and give him the best lines of the movie.
Has anybody seen "Nomadland"? Our morning radio commentator reckons it's an example of "wokeness"gone mad.
