“Considering that the action is as bloody and violent as it should be, [o diretor] Simon McQuoid was so excited about his insistence on taking a fundamentalist approach to his film.

James Marsh, South China Morning Post

“Fans will be delighted to hear that the film is a very meaningful update to the 1997 Mortal Kombat Annihilation movie. Fans can also look forward to the famous moves the characters have made in the video game franchise.”

Mufaddal Fakhruddin, IGN Middle East

“If you are a Mortal Kombat fan, you will have a lot of fun, because you will fill in the gaps with your pre-existing knowledge of the series and have fun with violence. But for the average viewer, there will be little reason to worry about what’s at stake here. Ultimately, that’s what 2021 Mortal Kombat comes down to: a solid video game adaptation full of fan service for gamers (stick with the post-credit scene) and a decent action flick for everyone. . ”

James Marsh, South China Morning Post

“The movie doesn’t focus on the drama of the characters, as they’re ninja-blooded boxers and green berets with robotic arms hitting invisible lizards and baby demons with bat wings. When not fighting, the characters argue and utter pseudo-spiritual expressions until it’s time to face each other again. Mortal Kombat is not for the most demanding palates ”

A’bidah Zaid, Geek Culture

“As a film based on the popular video game, Mortal Kombat effectively brings the gaming world to the big screen with great care and attention to detail. The characterization and portrayal of the beloved fighters are quite close to their in-game counterparts, with clothing and fighting styles almost identical to that of the game. The look, sound effects, blood and action are exactly what. that fans have been looking for since the original 1995 movie and up.

Sergio Pereira, fortress

“Mortal Kombat (2021) doesn’t come without its hits. The reboot ranges from pacing issues and lack of character development to weird editing. However, despite the occasional banging, the movie still kicks in and comes out victorious in the end.

Originally scheduled for April 15, the film’s premiere is now scheduled for May 13 in Brazilian theaters. The information was revealed by the notice of Warner Bros. at CinePOP.

Simon McQuoid (“Premonition 5”) is responsible for the staging.

MMA fighter Cole Young, used to being beaten for money, is unaware of his legacy – or because Emperor Outworld Shang Tsung sent his best warrior, Sub-Zero, a Cryomancer from another world, to hunt Cole. Fearing for the safety of his family, Cole sets out to find Sonya Blade and Jax, a special forces major who carries the same strange dragon that Cole was born with. Soon he finds himself in the temple of Lord Raiden, an ancient God and protector of Earthrealm, who grants sanctuary to those who bear the mark. Here, Cole trains with seasoned warriors Liu Kang, Kung Lao, and devious mercenary Kano, as he prepares to take on Earth’s greatest champions against enemies of Outworld in a high-risk battle across the universe. But will Cole be under enough pressure to unlock his arcane – the immense power in his soul – in time to not only save his family, but also stop Outworld once and for all?

The cast includes Joe Taslim (Sub Zero), Ludi Lin (Liu Kang), Jessica McNamee (Sonya Blade), Mehcad Brroks (Jax) Josh Lawson (Kano), Chin Han (Shang Tsung), Hiroyuki Sanada (Scorpion), Tadanobu Asano (Raiden), Sisi Stringer (Mileena).
