Fan Service All the Way; Mortal Kombat
” I came into the project with a script already there. I could see some potential, but it didn’t feel like Mortal Kombat, was my overall assessment of it. I just felt like it was … too far away from the lore. It was too far away from the mythology. It was doing things with the characters that just didn’t feel accurate. And as a fan, I thought we needed to respect it a little more. So then it became just a process of slowly developing it. ”
The fan service is all in the details. Bi-Han is able to manifest ice crystals in his hand. Hanzo’s wife uses a spear in her garden, then later Hanzo’s throwing spear, kunai. The characters speak in Chinese and Japanese, respectively and we are given subtitled translations. This first 7 minutes gives a good idea where the film plans to go and sets up the Scorpion – Sub-Zero feud really well, investing the movie watcher in the results of their blood feud.
