You just might be right.
But this film, which by the way is a pitch to WB, is turning Mortal Kombat into something it's not.  They could make a dark and gritty reboot while staying true to the original two games; make things more demonic, bloody and overall unsettling.
Before this came out, I wanted to make an MK film like that, taking place after the first game where everyone died except for Kang and Tsung.  Now that this film came out, if I made a film like that, it'd look like a final-effort to stay true to the story while making a film that was both violent, disturbing and entertaining.
You don't have to completely change a story to make it look like something else.  It's all about execution.
