    This was a rough one. Mortal Kombat seems allergic to its few interesting components and entirely too self conscious to be any real fun. The action is sloppy, the script lands with a thud and the gore feels like a cheap parlour trick meant to distract you from the flaws but is deployed far too sporadically to be effective. 

    Sonya should have been the main character and even then I wouldn’t recommend this mess. Fatally bad.

    I said in my King of Monsters review that it’s an impressive feat to make ideas such as these boring and here they’ve managed to blow me away once again.

    ★★★½

    A whole lot of movie packed into a very chased runtime but its heart is strong. Kelly Marie Tran is an absolute star and plays off the rest of the cast brilliantly. Raya is a compelling Disney Princess with moments of proper ambiguity for her character and the lore built around her story is worthy of an animated series or at least a sequel

    The film is also just damn gorgeous to look at with a rousing score and a climax that moved me to tears with its unabashed hopefulness.
