    The first Mortal Kombat was good but after the atrocity of Mortal Kombat: Annihilation I doubt anyone is gonna get hyped up for this one unless they get some real martial artists besides Robin Shou. Annihilation killed any momentum this series could have had. It was the Batman and Robin of Mortal Kombat movies.

    Yeah, MK: Annihilation was awful, and the effects in it were awful too.
    I'd still see a third one though... [​IMG]

    See you at the box office.... The Home Box Office. I think I'll catch this one on HBO or Starz, or wherever crappy movies go after extremely short theatrical runs. Then again this could be a good movie and I'll have to eat my words. I'm still kinda betting I won't need the appetite for nouns and verbs any time soon.

    Yeah, MK is one of my guilty pleasures (I seem to collect them [​IMG] ) but I'd love to see a third one done proper after the hokey and disappointing second one.
    As far as rumor goes, I hear that Moriarty over at AICN is one of the co-writers for this one. And that's about as much as I've heard about it :p)

    Add this one to my "future DVD purchases" list. Doubt I'll catch in theaters, unless word of mouth is good.

    Moriarty is officially writing it. I remember seeing it in the trades awhile back. In fact he is listed on that IMDB page under his real name, Drew McWeeny.

    Being an ex-huge fan of the games, this movies pissed me off.

    The games never had that good of a story, so I can't see how they could make them into 3 movies when they ruined the first one. They killed off all the bad guys (which ruined it all for me) and then half assed them back into the sequel.

    I also thought it just flat out sucked. Felt nothing like the games and wasn't what I would consider a good interpretation of them.

    I just hope the third isn't THAT bad. Wonder if they'll do the Quan Chi stuff in this one.

    I'm pessimistic (sp?). This one will be terrible.

    Enjoyed the first one. Hated the second one. Not going to get excited about the third one.

    I actually read a script by Moriarty (and Scott Swan) several years ago, that was eventually made into, according to himself on AICN, a really crappy movie [​IMG]. The script was decent.
    At least if he's writing it, he'll get lots of fan input at the site, I'm sure. [​IMG]

    I was definitely a fan of MK1 (It was on TNT last Sunday too [​IMG]). But I, like many of you dispised MK2...so we'll have to see about this one.

    Like most here, BIG MK1 fan, hated MK2.

    Isn't Anderson back on board for this one?
