The Internet is divided over the perceived quality of first-time director Simon McQuoid’s new adaptation of the Mortal Kombat IP. Some have declared it a masterpiece, others say it’s as bad as Annihilation. Randy and Jens find both of those positions needlessly hyperbolic, but they also still find plenty to disagree about.
For a comparison, listen to both reviews of the original movie, another review of the Mortal Kombat 2021 movie to understand the divide, as well as soundtrack and YouTube series reviews.
