The kids liked the first Mortal Kombat movie, so if there is a sequel we have to watch it. We also have a couple TV series to check out as well.
Mortal Kombat: Annihilation picks up with the first left off with Shao Kahn showing up and threatening to merge the Outworld and the Earth, which would end up destroying our world. So it is up to Sonya, Liu Kang, Johnny, Rayden, and a few new heroes to save the day.
Okay, this movie’s beginning graphics were awful. It was like Power Rangers (sorry to those who actually like that show). They replaced practically every character from the first except Liu Kang. On the plus side there was a lot of fighting, which my kids like. They also were happy because there were a lot more villians in this one. We had Sheeva, Sindel, Ermac, etc.
Is it a great move? No. Is it an easy light action flick? Yeah. Don’t have high expectations for this, but it isn’t a complete waste of time. Younger kids like mine (ages 7 and 11) will enjoy it!
