“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. . », Mufaddal Fakhruddin, IGN Middle East
“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 ”, James Marsh, South China Morning Post
“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. », A’bidah Zaid, Cultura Geek

Mortal Kombat is a powerful stage display, with… nearly two hours of action. “- Pablo O. Scholz, Clarín
