A version of Mortal Kombat that takes itself seriously is the most friggin boring thing ever. I mean, nobody has ever thought Mortal Kombat is a legitimately good fighting game. It was just that funny campy game you messed around with between sessions of Marvel and KOF.
I still stand that the original Mortal Kombat movie is the only video game movie that has been successful in capturing the tone of the source material and provided great entertainment. This, like season 1, is just dull.
