Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 4 is Now Live

Comingsoon says:

Episode 4 of "Mortal Kombat: Legacy," titled "Kitana & Mileena (Part 1)," is now live and can be watched using the player below the description.

Beautiful, athletic, and trained as highly skilled assassins, Kitana (Samantha Tjhia) and Mileena (Jolene Tran) have grown up thinking that they are sisters. Shao Kahn (Aleks Paunovic), Emperor of the Outworld, has tricked Shang Tsung (Johnson Phan) into becoming his servant for Mortal Kombat by making him clone Mileena as a Tarkatan clone of Kitana, out of Shao Kahn's fear that Kitana wouldn't love him enough if she ever found out the truth about her Mother and Father.

Kevin Tancharoen directed the episode, written by Todd and Aaron Helbing.

Thi is a pretty big episode with a wole crap load of series mainstays. I really liked this episode.

I definitely would have preferred them to make 4 normal length episodes rather than split them each into 2+ parts.

This whole episode was just backstory. The chick playing Mileena looked kinda ugly too...

Alot of the girls look really off to me. It started with Sonya. In the game she looks more in her 20's and very athletic built. Barring the huge tits like all the girls, you would think thats kinda easy to find.

The Sonya they did find looks older, and not as energetic....

Agreed, casting is bit disappointing with some characters.

I got used to Jeri Ryan as Sonya after watching the first two episodes a couple times.

The casting is pretty uninspired.

I'd say that they've done fairly well so far with getting some decent names attached to the project, considering this is technically a 'fan' series. Personally, I've always been a big proponent of getting the best actor for the part. Even if they don't look exactly the same as we think they should, I'd rather have an actor who plays the role well and brings something to the story.

I kinda understand why this director and what not stuck with a internet mini series. He starts off great, then mid "show" he kinda loses control and things get dull and amateurish.

I wish the acting was better. It seems like high school kids trying to do a project at certain areas.

Doing my best to like it, but having a lack of budget and putting it on the internet isn't a good excuse to poor quality.

darklordzor3459d ago

They have a fairly decent budget, but you're right, it is obvious at times that this is not a high production project. I think it's a tad better than high school, but there have been moments where I rolled my eyes and thought it was too cheesy.

All things considered though, I'm digging the series and I'm hoping it can be a launching point for another movie. I think a big budget MK movie would do very well these days and I'd love to see it get another chance

Soldierone3459d ago

Yeah I was thinking maybe like College interns that just figured out how to do visuals and what not.

Im not saying I hated it, im just disappointed a studio churned this out as a marketing "whatever" device instead of actually trying. This could of been a MASSIVE step in the right direction for studios. Make a really kick ass pre-film mini series leading up to films...Start making money before movies even release.

I watched the first episode but I just wasn't feeling it. Just seemed amateurish in several areas and it felt slow/boring. For that latter reason I've opted to just hold off and then go back and watch all the rest at one time. Maybe having more to watch while help (or course it will probably hurt if they're all as slow). For me, it's not looking so good for this.

The problem is that if you watch them all together they really don't go know? I mean they really don't follow a pattern. I think it would be best to just make the movie and get it over with. This episode was better than the last one though. It set a stage for a lot more to come so I hope they deliver.
