Many of us who are old enough to remember that special feeling we got when we first saw Sub Zero rip someone’s spine out of his body are not likely to forget it. Ever. It was a stand-out moment in gaming … and in our culture. The films? Not so much. The first Mortal Kombat movie nearly felt all right, while the second was quite simply — shit. Can a third film finally offer fans what we’ve been dying for?
Bloody Disgusting got word today that Warner is looking to reboot the franchise with a completely new film with Oren Uziel in talks to write.
As a huge fan of the video game franchise that was unleashed in 1992, I’m more than game for a new film as Mortal Kombat has a very rich mythos and more than its fair share of extremely badass characters. There’s just one thing — can we get some of the series’ trademark violence this time? MK without gore is like being served a hamburger bun with no meat. It’s a glaring omission! Come on, guys … give us a hard R. Or give us a PG-13 and then release a hard R or unrated cut on Blu-ray and DVD.
Do this and we’ll perform a friendship! We promise!
