Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge: Honestly, What WB Animation Should Have Been Doing All Along

Dripping in blood and brains; this is what WB Animation should only be allowed to make. After over-the-top violence being in cartoons made for children who just want to see Batman and Wonder Woman save the day, WB Animation finally made something they can put in all their hang-ups and need for evisceration. Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge is perfect for a cartoon studio shoving violence into content for no reason. But now, it makes perfect sense.

The almost Engrish titled Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge is a wonderful very violent remake of the live action movie, this time starring Scorpion, because he's the most popular character. Johnny, Sonya and Liu Kang are stil there, but are taken to the back seat.

The first live action Mortal Kombat, is totally watchable and still fun to see, especially if you're a fan. They captured that movie and just tweaked the story. So, now, Scorpion and all his moves are the star.

In what's hard to write, I actually have to compliment WB animation on a fun, ninja-filled, bone-crunching action movie. After years now of wasting their efforts on super heroes, it pays off on this essentially 90's action movie that looks like a 90's cartoon.

The fights in here do have the lovely x-ray shots you have from the games to see what's broken if you're planning one day becoming a doctor. Which doesn't matter much as many people's insides come outside. And sort of greet you with, "Oh, I shouldn't be out here, that's bad."

If a fan of the series there's plenty of cameos and total call backs to the game throughout the film. So pick it up if you know Mortal Kombat or just want to see it rain some blood.

As of writing it, it's out on digital, hopefully it'll go down to be rented instead of the ludicrous only option of buying it for $19.99
