Mortal Kombat Legacy, Hot Ninja Action
Finally, some ninja shit! Not really enough ninja shit for my tastes, but this is what I’ve been looking forward to the most from this series. I hope we get a second part to this in episode 8. I’m really digging Scorpions face plate.
You know, I’ve been thinking about the way they’ve been going about the origins in Mortal Kombat: Legacy. There’s no way we’d get this much depth from each character if this was another movie. We’d probably get some background on Sonya and Jax and maybe some of Scorpion and Sub Zero if at all. The film would probably focus mostly on the fighting. Since this is a web series with so many parts, they have an opportunity to expand on stories that they’d never have a chance to on film. The only danger is doing too much background. Initially, I was really excited about this series. But as it’s gone on, I’ve gotten less and less excited. I think I’m really ready for the tourney. And even though they’ve finally gotten to an origin I care about, I think it’s time to start kicking some more asses.
