I prefer this to Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realm.  This direct-to-video addition to the Mortal Kombat animated world is better, its plot is streamlined which is one thing the last one did not have, a very streamlined story which follows a few characters from start to end.

The animation is not one that I will jump off my sit to see again, and in the long run it will be one of those things you have seen and forgotten. The action and gore will play well to the lovers of the game, but at times were just unnecessary.

Another thing about this which can be a positive or negative is that the animation did not try anything new it followed the A-Z of making post-apocalyptic movies, a trend movie watchers are already accustomed to. The Mortal Kombat characters that we are used to are numbered here, but not bad to see the new ones in the game come to light. What I know from seeing this animation is that, because I grew up in the early 90s with this game, it just felt the movie lacked the fun of all the whole characters I know from Mortal Kombat 2 fighting one another.

After the defeat of Shao Khan, the earth was now being raided by beings and it just decayed into a complete wasteland in the end.

Kano is now going about calling himself king and conquering all the outpost cities. He is doing this with his new formed crew of Mortal Kombat characters calling themselves Black Dragon. In one of the cities was Kenshi who was seeking to become the best fighter there is. His encounter with one of the faction crew in the Black Dragon made him a target which was dealt with easily. He got tricked by Shang Tsung losing his sight in the process and Tsung gaining power to take on Kano.

The animation entered a dull phase in the training of Kenshi, when Sub-Zero found him blind and helpless. But thank goodness the ability to skip forward exist. Sub-Zero trained Kenshi to be independent even though he was blind and to be a better fighter. Then the animation had their characters who will now take on the bad guys and stop the madness.

I guess there will always be more animated gore action Mortal Kombat movies, many may like the way the animations are moving forward with things happening after the events of the previous animation. I just miss the old crew.
