I’ve published a new column at The dropout yesterday. With the new trailer for the restart Mortal KombatIt seemed like the perfect opportunity to take a look back at Paul W.S. Anderson’s original from 1995.
In recent years, Anderson has been reassessed as a director and he has often celebrated his understanding of the field in which he operates. Andersons Mortal Kombat is not excusing pulp and is perfectly positioned at this level. Anderson understands that the key to faithful adjustment Mortal Kombat is not a loyalty to continuity, but an appreciation of what the audience and players really love about the series. It exists in marked contrast to the version that Mortal Kombat suggested by the new trailer.
