Parents need to know that Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge is the first animated feature film since the franchise became part of the Warner Bros. Animation organization. The movie is based on a series of popular, if controversial, video games that appeared in the 1990s (originally a Midway arcade game). Noted for its extreme violence and gore, the game pitted two entities in a ring fighting to the death. This new feature entry is more of the same. The plot serves to string together a multitude of brutal battle sequences. Monstrous creatures sustain the mayhem. Blood and body parts fill the screen at intervals as characters are beheaded, dismembered, set on fire, exploded, speared through heart, head, and all extremities. Weapons include machine guns, chains, swords, giant icicles, knives, fists, falls, explosive devices. Though it's animated action, no injury, blow, or stabbing is left to the imagination. There are countless deaths. Swearing and profanity is heard at times ("f--k," "s--t," "a--hole," "sonofabitch," "d--k," "bastard"). It's clear by the end of the movie that sequel(s) will follow. The movie is definitely not for the faint-hearted or mutilation-averse crowd, and absolutely not for kids.
