‘Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms’ Review – Action Extravaganza!

If you enjoyed the post, follow here:

Just finished watching Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms, the sequel to the best MK film aka Scorpion’s Revenge, and I’m a bit mixed about it. The film both gave me satisfaction as an MK fan but also a bit of confusion on the direction they were going with it. Let’s go and jump right into this spoiler-free review for Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms!

Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms was directed by Ethan Spaulding, written by Jeremy Adams, and produced by Rick Moraled & Jim Krieg. The film takes place after the events of the first tournament, and Shao Kahn has brought a war to Earthrealm after Shang Tsung’s defeat. Also, we follow Scorpion on his journey to find the Kamidogu to stop the One Being be resurrected. Who will rise and who will fall in this sequel?! You will be surprised.

I thought a lot of the scenes and dialogue in the film was great, but the story went by too fast. A lot of the good ideas in the movie needed to get fleshed out more because there was scenes where I went “Oh yeah, they’re setting this up for a third film for sure,” just for it to be thrown into the movie and be done with. This film deserved to be more than 80 minutes because it held back the film’s potential. Battle of the Realms could’ve easily been two separate films.

The story isn’t written bad, but it sucked that it felt like the film was on a cosmic treadmill. When a third film potentially happens, I just hope it slows down a bit and not try to over stuff it.

The action this film makes the first one look like child’s play. Literally from start to end you get so many badass fighting scenes, and if you’re an MK fan then just know that it gives you what you want. I’ve lost it and many of the fights, especially the tournament’s last match because the animators went full Dragon Ball Z.

I really got to praise the animations an aesthetics in the film. A lot of the scenes were fluid and impressive, plus the character designs were so good. The animators did there thing for sure.

Also, the blood and gore has definitely upped up from Scorpion’s Revenge. I popped hard at a lot of the fatalities as well. You can tell they were having fun coming up with ideas on how to kill characters in the film.

Voice acting was solid. My two favorites that I thought really killed their roles were Fred Tatasciore as Shao Khan and Dave B. Mitchell as Raiden. They really nailed the casting for this film for sure.

I really enjoyed the score for this film. John Jennings Boyd and Eric V. Hachikian made good choices that’s for sure. During the action, down time, and the emotional moments were all handled nicely.

Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms only fell short because it was doing to many things in a short amount of time, but everything else were great. Again, if there is a third film, which I’m hoping for, I hope the story is slowed down and fleshed out with more time. Regardless, I still had a lot of fun watching the film.

If you’re a MK fan or just want to see wild fighting, blood, and gore, then you should give Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms a watch.
