    Not bad. I might have to look up and watch the actual movie.

    It could, of course, go horribly wrong with MK. Different pieces to play with, after all.

    As I watching that trailer, I was getting ready to praise it as a brilliant reinvention of the Mortal Kombat franchise, turning a mystical kung fu opera into a gory crime drama, like a grown up and non-satirical version of There Will be Brawl.
    Unfortunately, once they mentioned the tournament business, and I had to redact that praise.
    It's like they got 2/3 of the way through an awesome idea, and then at the last minute decided "no, we better make this played-out bullshit and use the same premise as every odd martial arts movie since Bloodsport instead."
    The choreography in that Baraka/Johnny Cage fight was kind of meh... the suplex through the table was neat, but everything else was meh. Lots of the same boiler plate spin kicks and cowboy punches that we've been using to fill out fight scenes for the past couple decades. We even had the black guy with dreadlocks crouching and whirling like a half-ape, half-capoerista, all-ethnic stereotype. When Cage up flung over the back of the couch, I was really expecting to see some sweet ass modified BJJ, but it was abandoned in favor of more awkward Buffy the Vampire style throws.
    Clearly, they should've hired me to choreograph the movie instead. :P
    The fool thinks himself immortal,
    If he hold back from battle;
    But old age will grant him no truce,
    Even if spears spare him.

    He was in the perfect position for all types of armbars and triangle chokes and even a gogo...sadly, it didn't happen. That's when the failboat officially docked in my book!

    You seem to be making the mistake of analyzing this with standards.

    I was surprised after seeing the undisputed clip, which had all sorts of ankle locks in it.

    No dude no if he went for an armbar, triangle whatever he would have been killed with Barakas arm-knife thing. I mean they're trying to make this movie realistic :P

    Oh, god. More than anything. Who thinks that is entertaining?

    I was surprised after seeing the undisputed clip, which had all sorts of ankle locks in it.
    Yeah, I was too. The movie (i went and watched it...) is pretty average, but the fight scenes are alright. They could be better, but they're alright.

    You seem to be making the mistake of analyzing this with standards.
    Mortal Kombat and standards?

    Lol.
