They took everything I love.

Bruh. They took EVERYTHING i love. EVERYTHING i love about mortal kombat. It does not even SEEM like a mortal kombat movie. the enviorment and tone of this movie is COMPLETELY different from what i like. The tone is too cold and blue-ish. i also hate the new theme song. the remix is just.... bad. they made it like a dance party feel or whatever. im fine with da violence. Im a kid by the way.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing

Not Bad

I know nothing of Mortal Kombat and I enjoyed it. My 12 year old plays the game and it was all of the same characters. There was quite a bit of blood and guts and violence and the unnecessary f words through out...but if your child can handle the gore and the few curse words it is a good story line.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
