I want to see Sub-Zero and Scorpion in action ASAP.

I was going to post this earlier, thats how amped I was when I saw it. Looks a lot better than expected.

The acting is a little eh, but its watchable.

JL2267d ago

Amped? Really? I was kinda disappointed with that. Not that it was bad. It just didn't seem Mortal Kombat-ish at all to me.

Soldierone2267d ago

For something thats free on Youtube, its pretty sweet. I wasn't expecting it to be this kind of quality, so thats why im kinda happy with it.

JL2267d ago

Well I will agree it's good quality and seems pretty well done. My main gripe with it though is it just doesn't seem like what I imagined a Mortal Kombat show to look like.

Soldierone2267d ago

I was thinking the same thing. The entire fight sequence feels extremely forced to me. I know thats what MK is about, but you should still build it up.

hazelamy2267d ago

looks pretty decent, honestly, it could have been much, much worse.

JL2267d ago

Definitely could've been much worse. It's just not what I'd expect from a Mortal Kombat movie.

-MD-2267d ago

It has nowhere near the budget of a movie.

JL2267d ago

I'm not talking about the budget or production quality at all. Just the style of it. It doesn't look Mortal Kombat-ish.

Christopher2267d ago

@JL: That's kind of what they wanted, though. They wanted the concept and characters, but not the overly fantastical elements.

JL2266d ago

See, that's the thing, though. For me it's not really MK without the fantastical elements.

Christopher2264d ago

I can definitely respect that viewpoint, JL. Trust me, big fan of both of the movies. Over the top and ridiculous action movies that really went for being true to the video games. Just ignore that the Lightning God has a lisp :p

God, this looks awesome but WHY can't they just make a movie. The original 7 min clip was SOOO SWEET.

Quagmire2267d ago

Because y'know, that'll actually PLEASE the fans. Everyone knows Hollywood continually crushes fanboy dreams one franchise at a time.

Id rather have faithful and epic shorts than a disappointing and unfaithful adaptation film of MK.

-MD-2267d ago

I think they're making this origin story in preperation for a film reboot. Each one of these episodes focuses on a different MK fighter I believe. Perfect lead into a film.

MinimeJer052267d ago

Lets hope these "shorts" get enough attention so that we can someday see a full length feature!

Quagmire2267d ago

I wish these guys could do Live Action shorts for Tekken.
