‘Mortal Kombat’ Was LIT

Hello friends!! I’ve been SLACKING on the movie reviews, especially when it comes to writing. Have had so much going on & no time to breathe. I also was experimenting to see if I could take these movie reviews digital, instead of writing like how I am now lmao. But the paper trail is cool I guess, praying someone cares enough to read these when I post them on Facebook!

So I actually went to see the new Mortal Kombat movie a whole week ago, Friday April 23rd to be exact. I usually write the review night of or the next day, but I decided go on Instagram Live to talk about the movie instead. I realize I didn’t give much detail at all, partly because I wasn’t too familiar with Mortal Kombat prior. There’s a whole old school classic film I’m missing out on.

But anyways! This new Mortal Kombat is a reboot of the 1997 movie film, which is based on a video game series. We went to the 9:50pm showing at Regal LA Live in downtown Los Angeles. I love this theater!! Partly because it’s the closest to me, the only downside is you have to pay for parking. I’m just glad movies are back because that’s the #1 thing I missed most during the pandeic. Our theater was about half capacity, & I smoked RIGHT beforehand… so everything was extra lit lmao.

IMDB plot: MMA fighter Cole Young seeks out Earth’s greatest champions in order to stand against the enemies of Outworld in a high stakes battle for the universe.

The movie is pretty much 2 hours of action & comedy, 1 hour and 50 minutes to be exact. I really enjoyed it minus the ending, I was like there’s no way that’s the end! I also laughed at Josh Lawson’s jokes every single time (the white guy), I blame the marijuana! Also was obsessed with the boss white lady Jessica McNamee, she’s a super badass. I found out AFTER THE FACT that everyone thought the movie was weak, but I also think people have hella high expectations, It was truly enjoyable to watch. A lot of killing, blood, and deaths though… so if you can tolerate that, highly recommend!
