‘Mortal Kombat’ Won’t Win Any Awards, but it’s a Bloody Good Time

In addition to the cast being delightfully diverse this time around, the film was just loosely-plotted and action-packed enough to keep a casual fan like myself entertained. While I do agree that the writing of Cole left much to be desired for an original character thrust into a preconceived universe, none of the characters seemed particularly fleshed out in terms of personality; however, I think that’s to be expected when you’re watching a film literally inspired by a video game.
