This one wasn't as good as the first 3...but it was alright.

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

If this series was a child, I'd feed it a whole bottle full of ritalin. They're doing nothing with any of the threads they touch on before jumping off to the next.

Also not thrilled with the abrupt, artless transition between being somewhat grounded in reality and full-blown fantasy.

On a more superficial note, are we still in flashback territory at the end? Because if those are supposed to be the final versions of Kitana and Mileena, why do they look like twelve year olds?

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

^ They're not designed to be resolved. These are all shorts touching on specific characters showing various motivations of how they ended up in the tournament. I would be surprised if we saw the tournament. I don't think that's how this is going to end at all. Think of this as a prequel to the game. In fact if we get a season two I doubt we'll see the tournament. These are all character based.

This show is getting lamer and lamer every episode. And here to think I was absolutely pumped at Rebirth. Damn.

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

How is it getting lamer and lamer? I'll agree this was the first dud but I don't think it's regressing as badly as you do. I have to agree with Holdfast's assessment of this episode. The mix of animation and live action didn't work for me, the narration was uninspiring and flat (although I have a suspicion that maybe it was meant to be that way).

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

Episode five is up. Part two of Katana and Mileena. I didn't find this one as boring as the first part. Shao Khan was interesting. For those wondering Raiden is in this, he's played by someone named Ryan Robbins. Have no idea what episode he'll be appearing in though. Sub-Zero and Scorpion probably will be up soon.

This guy? If it is him, that's awsome, Henry is my favorite character on Sanctuary.

I enjoyed part five more than four, but this whole "cut to animation" thing isn't working for me. It takes me out of the episode for a few seconds every time they switch back and forth. If they had been doing this from the beginning it'd be one thing, but it was just suddenly thrown in four episodes in so it's weird. Here's hoping for a better episode six.

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

I didn't like the cutting back and forth between live action and animation either. I understand the intent to use the animation as a framing device and part of the narration of the past but it doesn't work. I'm wondering if this wasn't just part of the design for these two episodes or if it will crop up again in later ones? Sorry about the lack of link...there was none at the time I posted.

I think it was also used for budgetary reasons and ability to get away with some of the gore MK is known for.

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

We're back to being awesome again. This is maybe my favorite episode of the series so far.
