Blu-ray Review: MORTAL KOMBAT ANNIHILATION
Warner Brothers' Mortal Kombat Annihilation is the obvious follow up to Mortal Kombat. This movie lacks on so many levels and seemed rushed. It does follow the video game characters and their tricks and weapons they use but doesn't introduce them well and the story is very weak. The Blu-ray runs 95 minutes of PG-13 special effects cheesy action.
John R. Leonetti directs this follow-up that is a visually enjoying watch on Blu-ray but it just doesn't have any new character development. Robin Shou reprises his role as Liu Kang who leads almost an entirely recast group of heroes in this sequel, we still have Talisa Soto as Kitana who joins Kang and also Chris Conrad (Johnny Cage) for about a minute unitl he meets his early doom. To me the Blu-ray is still entertaining simply to watch the special effects. The Blu-ray offers a much clearer watch and any Mortal Kombat fanatic will probably add this to their collection. A visually fun watch for the Mortal Kombat fans with hardly no story line at all.
A new era...but for whom? The Mortal Kombat victory in the Outworld was supposed to give rise to a generation of peace on Earth. But never trust the word of the fiendish and the powerful mad They've opened the portals linking their diminsion to ours, and Earth will be overwhelmed- if a gutsy band of heroes doesn't aquire new kombat skills that will crush Outworld's imaginative array of bad-ass warrior cretures. John R. Leonetti, cinematographer of Mortal Komabt and 2010's Pirnaha, directs the fighting fury of Mortal Kombat Annihilation, smash evil!
Warner Brothers will release Mortal Kombat Annihilation on Blu-ray on April 19th.
