Every Detail You Missed In The Mortal Kombat Movie
Subscribe: http://bit.ly/Subscribe-to-Screenrant

Three decades ago Mortal Kombat made a splash by being one of the most divisive games ever released. It’s also one of the most iconic franchises out there, spawning a dozen plus games and several rounds of feature films. With that much content, lore, and characters to pull from the makers of 2021’s Mortal Kombat had an opportunity to really dig in and pay homage to all the most memorable parts of the series and they ran with it. From fatalities to babalities, and spamming leg sweeps to apocalyptic fashion pieces, it’s all there. Or, at least, a lot of it is. Fans are already buzzing about the notable absence of some of the series most beloved characters and there’s a surprising lack of the titular Mortal Kombat despite the distinct presence of a lot of Kombat and a gruesome helping of ‘Mortal.’

So get out your dragon marks, fire up your arcana, and please make sure you aren’t eating anything while you join us for a discussion of twenty-five of the movies most insane, subtle, fascinating, and downright icky references you might have missed your first time through! Be enthralled by the breadth of details packed away in the background of each scene, be impressed by the sheer number of times the original creators of the game series managed to get their names snuck into the IP, and be entertained while your lovely host jumps through every linguistic hoop imaginable just to describe a few scenes without provoking a moral panic like the original video game did back in 1993!
