Kids say (5):

Horrific deaths and bloody mayhem are nonstop in this well-executed but hyperviolent return of a popular, decades-old video franchise now a part of the Warner Brothers Animation team. Vilified (even banned in some countries) by parent groups, educators, and politicians in the 1990s for its over-the-top focus on death and destruction, the game had no shortage of fans. Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge is back "with a vengeance." Fans of the brand will be happy. The animation is slick; the voice actors' performances are first-rate; the heroes elicit sympathy. Joel McHale as the vain, hapless actor who is in the wrong place at the wrong time adds welcome comic relief to the relentless head-bashing and slashing of the murderous villains who fill the screen with blood and gore.
