Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

I really liked the take on Raiden in this episode, and Blue (is she from the mythos? Or was she just a mental patient?) was kind of cute for a mental patient. I loved the blue blood and the special effects for the lightning were really cool to see. The hat at the end of the episode was a nice touch.

As I theorized before, I don't think we're meant to see the actual MK tournament at the end of this, that's the game it's self. However if a movie was ever green lit I would love for this to lead into that.

Oh so that's what Raiden was up to prior to the tournament. The actor kind of resembles Michael Biehn. Great episode. This one is my favorite so far too.

Even though they're not really connected to each other, they set the bar pretty high with Rebirth. So far I don't think the series has quite lived up to that with the exception of this episode. It really needs to blend that gritty realism with the mysticism for it to work, as the disclaimer mentioned. Going total realistic in tone has been great, while going full bore into the fantasy aspect has been more of a miss than a hit, but this episode managed to find that happy medium. Hope they keep it up. Still been pretty cool to see this series though.

Kudos for getting Ryan Robbins in this! This was a very different character to see him play. Very fun.

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

For those who have been clamoring for Scorpion and Sub-Zero...the wait is almost over. Tomorrow's episode will feature them both. Raiden was just a warm up

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

Just got caught up with Kitana/Mileena Pt2, and Raiden. K/M wasn't particularly good, though I liked their initial fight scene. Raiden was lots of fun; very atmospheric. I do think they missed a few tricks though: it would have been AWESOME to see him being given Electro-Convulsive Therapy and use the energising effect of that to breakout of the institute (in fact, that's where I thought they were going, with the whole "other treatments" angle, until they revealed the lobotomy hammer and pick). They did a little of that with the tasers, but full-on ECT would have been far cooler. Loved the literal hat-tip at the end though.

Looking forward to Sub-Zero/Scorpion.

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

Count me in as thinking that as well. It was a good swerve.

Here it is guys:



This and the next one will probably be the best ones!

Weird seeing Ian Anthony Dale play Kazuya in the Tekken movie and Scorpion in this one.

That was beautiful. Interesting to see Maurissa Tancharoen as Kana. She of course is Kevin's brother and co-wrote "Dr. Horrible's Sing Along Blog".

Re: Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 1 is Online!

Here is the conclusion.

These two episodes are my favorite of the series so far. Both emotional and action packed and with a high octane score. I believe this is the second episode of the series that directly references the Mortal Kombat tournament.

That was awesome. It would have been cool if this was a full on TV series.
