Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge (2020) -- R-rated animated movie



One of the most popular videogame franchises in history comes to animated life in "Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge," an all-new, feature-length film produced by Warner Bros. Animation in coordination with NeatherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. The film arrives from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment on Digital starting April 12, 2020, and on 4K Ultra HD Combo Pack, Blu-ray Combo Pack and DVD on April 28, 2020.

Based on the worldwide hit game created by Ed Boon & John Tobias, "Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge" spotlights the once-in-a-generation tournament between the champions of Outworld and Earthrealm – a competition that will ultimately determine the fate of Earth and all its citizens. Lord Raiden, protector of Earthrealm, must gather the greatest fighters of his realm to defend it from the evil Shang Tsung in the battle to end all battles - Mortal Kombat!

Joel McHale (Community, The CW’s upcoming Stargirl) and Jennifer Carpenter (Dexter, Batman: Gotham by Gaslight) lead a stellar cast as the voices of Hollywood star-turned-fighter Johnny Cage and all-business warrior Sonya Blade, respectively. The voice cast also includes Jordan Rodrigues (Lady Bird, The Fosters) as Liu Kang, Patrick Seitz (Mortal Kombat X, Agrretsuko, Naruto: Shippuden) as Scorpion & Hanzo Hasashi, Steve Blum (Cowboy Bebop, Star Wars Rebels) as Sub-Zero, Artt Butler (Her, Star Wars: The Clone Wars) as Shang Tsung, Darin De Paul (Overwatch, Fortnite) as Quan Chi, Robin Atkin Downes (The Strain, Batman: The Killing Joke) as Kano, David B. Mitchell (Mortal Kombat 11, World of Warcraft franchise) as Raiden, Ike Amadi (Mass Effect 3, Mortal Kombat 11) as Jax Briggs, Kevin Michael Richardson (Family Guy, The Simpsons) as Goro, Grey Griffin (The Loud House, Young Justice, Scooby-Doo franchise) as Kitana & Satoshi Hasashi, and Fred Tatasciore (Robot Chicken, Family Guy) as Demon Torturer.

"Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge" is directed by Ethan Spaulding (Batman: Assault on Arkham, Justice League: Throne of Atlantis) from a script by Jeremy Adams (Supernatural, Teen Titans Go! Vs. Teen Titans) based on the videogame created by Ed Boon and John Tobias. Rick Morales (Batman: Return of the Caped Crusaders, Batman vs. Two-Face) is Producer, and Jim Krieg (Batman: Gotham by Gaslight) is co-producer. Executive Producer is Sam Register. Ed Boon (NetherRealm Studios) is Creative Consultant.





Didn't see a thread about this. It's currently out on digital and will be on BD on the 28th.

Eh, I watched it. It was enjoyable I suppose, but didn't live up to the hype surrounding it for being the first rated R Mortal Kombat film.

Re: Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge (2020) -- R-rated animated movie

This was fucking awesome & badass. Extremely violent, bloody. Heads being crushed, eye balls being pulled out, decapitations, bodies being torn in half, and arms being torn off. It was everything I could have wished for in an R rated Mortal Kombat movie. Lots of nods to the game. Blows away the previous 2 shitty Mortal Kombat movies. Definitely not for the kids.

It does end on a cliffhanger, so I assume they are developing a sequel.

It's a Scorpion origin story as well as an origin story for the Mortal Kombat tournament. So you actually do feel some sympathy for the Scorpion character.

The first scene is homage to The Wild Bunch, right?

This was fucking awesome. Brutal as hell. Some comical kinda like VG. Glad I knew games and stupid live action movies long ago. Not now. But all characters I knew. But, wow brutal. This was a great martial arts R rated animated flick!

This is also a great origin story of it all. So brutal and really well written. Would love some kind of movie series like this. Just great.

I thought it was pretty good, but yeah I think it would have been better suited as a series.

Joel McHale was so good as Johnny Cage. Maybe played a little too stupid, but maybe that's the character. i dunno. still great choice. all the voice acting was really well done. loved seeing all these characters i grew up on, but abandoned years ago, though i think i have 10 or 11 or whatever. unexpected about some characters too. good origin story all around. and that trailer for JLD: AW looked really good, which comes out tomorrow.

If you’re any kind of Mortal Kombat fan, either past or present, you got to see Scorpion’s Revenge. It’s an MK fans wet dream and even if not great, funny, brutal movie. It pays such great homage to game it’s as if this is a true companion piece. Just great stuff.

Fun movie. A bit too many throwbacks to the original film via what seemed like direct copying of dialogue and scenes. Been a couple years since I watched the OG but I recognized a few lines instantly.

I like how they used the xray damage from the games. Quan-Chi seemed off. His animations made him seem too cartoonish rather than serious. The art style otherwise was well done.
