    Finally. Hopefully they won't mess this up.

    I love the webisodes, but I honestly don't see this going well.

    Hmm, I had the thread title in all caps, can a mod change the k to K at least? Thanks.

    Innnntersting. I haven't seen the webisodes and honestly, don't really care to.

    MK was the best Video game to movie for the longest time, I'd be willing to give it a shot. Considering how well fleshed out the story in the recent MK game is I thin we can expect the film to closely mirror that.

    Which is fine by me, just please please please pick a better girl for Sonya than the chick in the original film. She was AWFUL.

    I understand it's being directed by the same guy who did the webisodes? Good for him!

    Hopefully it's better than their first attempt, although Annihalation wasn't that bad.

    Yeah if anything, those movies were like Power Rangers with better fighting, so really not worth all of the negative shit people drop on them now days.

    Maybe more along the lines of the Power Ranger movies

    MK Annihilation was painfully bad. It's like they weren't even trying with that one.

    I have the odd feeling that this won't match the first MK movie, unless they hire The Shang Tsung guy again.

    I like Cary Hiroyuki Tagawa as Shang baby, but I wouldn't mind seeing a different take on the character. Maybe something closer to his old man game incarnation? That's assuming they're even going to tell the story of MK1 again. Could be something completely different.

    MORTAL KOMBAT: SPECIAL FORCES MISSIONS!!
    And it'd be all about Jax and Sonya chasing Kano around with no other connection to the tournament. :p

    Maybe it's just me, but wasn't there a really strong focus on Jax to begin with? Like again, maybe it's just my broken recollection talking, but I seem to remember him being pretty major in regards to the Annihilation book, even if it wasn't carried over into the film.

    Although for something like this, the paperback was probably adopted from the screenplay itself, so yeah.

    And that's where the brillance kicks in: Tagawa is pretty damn old by this far, he could easily pass for an old man [middle-aged, but whatever, he was Heihachi Mishima, damn'it!].

    Same goes for Christopher Lambert: Now he's on the perfect age to play Raiden.

    Meh, more military.?
    To be honest?They could make a movie about one the villains to give it a new spin, I'd like to see a movie about Kano, for one.

    When I was 7, my classmates use to play that and the one who always starts it always wants to be Scorpion.

    But my favorite is Sub Zero, even when I was looking for the toy, they are expencive.
