Mortal Kombat Short film starring Spawn!

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010 | Posted by Fernando Caire

Video game based films have not had it easy, especially Mortal Kombat. To be fair i mindlessly enjoy the first one well the second is a complete abomination. However it seems someone out there decided to make  a Mortal Kombat short film starring Michael Jai White (Spawn, The Dark Knight, Black Dynamite) as Jax.

The tone feels off from the video game but I wouldn’t say that is such a bad thing. This feels dark, grim, dirty, and brutal as hell. It feels like what The Dark Knight did for Batman, grounding the universe and its characters in reality. But don’t take my word for it, watch it below and tell us what you think? Can this be the new direction for a line of dark and violent movies the video game franchise deserves? As long as Uwe Boll stays away from it, I love this concept.

    This is an excellent short love it better than the one in theatre and this would bring back the games true reputation not the damage that the movie it self did

    Yeah this def looks cool enough to go somewhere and maybe renew Mortal Kombat’s rep… still wish the story could be more original

    to tell you the truth this if ever comes out like this. it will be one of the best video game movies ever made.
    since we have had some many crappy movies made by people that dont know to follow really good story line and fall out off character. 10000 Plus want to see more
