Mortal Kombat Legacy II: An Exciting Cliffhanger Ending

Date of Release (DVD/Blu – ray): October 14th 2014

Director: Kevin Tancharoen.

Distributed by Warner Bros.

Mortal Kombat Legacy is a superb web series. It’s interesting, unique, it offers a great quality. It’s a lot of action and a great fun. All that blended with magnificent costumes and great effects. It’s almost like a 90 minutes long movie. At least, it gives you that feeling. It consists of 10 minute long episodes. You can watch it online and it’s good that way but be aware that it’s even better on Blu – Ray. Watching it on a big screen HDTV gives you a whole new experience. Kevin Tancharoen did a good job with this web series. Its online success speaks for itself.

Tancharoen’s Legacy continues the story of the original Mortal Kombat film franchise and gives you more. It’s more realistic. There are characters from the game and the movies. There is the original story. It all makes a great and adventurous trip. It’s boat real to the game and real to the movies. Of course, there are supernatural elements but even that parts have a real feel. That’s a great thing about the Legacy.

What Is It About?

Mortal Kombat Legacy showed us the back story and the beginnings. The second series offers a different journey. Mortal Kombat Legacy II is mainly about the fighting. It’s about the tournament itself. It shows us preparing and training for the tournament and the fighting, of course. It’s what we came for. There’s a lot of fast and furious action. The battles are so entertaining! It offers a lot one – on – one fights but it’s not rare to see those one become two – on – one battles. You may be surprised with the number of dialogues and the interesting aspects of the story. It’s not just a pure action. It’s more than that but it’s mixed very well and won’t leave anyone disappointed. Every true Mortal Kombat fan would be satisfied with the Legacy II.

The Cliffhanger

It’s safe to say there will probably be a Legacy III. Actually, we’re pretty certain there’ll be a third series. With the way Legacy II ended it’s more than obvious. We can’t wait to see the new one and how it will be done. We won’t give you spoilers but be sure the ending will leave you hanging and wanting more.

The Only Flaw

It’s not fair to call it a flaw, but if we’re doing a review it should be mentioned. We already said that the episodes are greatly done and they almost look like a 90 minute long movie. But that’s it. They almost look like that. Each of the episodes is a 10 minute long and there’s something missing with them transitioning from one to another. There’s no smooth transition and there should have been. Of course, there is a story and every episode continuous the story from the previous one. But it’s not natural as it should have been. Other than that, Legacy II is a magnificent experience.

Mortal Kombat: Conquest – TV Series Review

Probably every Mortal Kombat fan has seen TNT 1999 TV series Mortal Kombat: Conquest. It was a great show for old fans but also brought in some new ones. Unfortunately, the series was cancelled after only one season. Nevertheless, I enjoyed watching it as a lot of you, I’m sure. Let’s remind ourselves of this great TV series and its characters.

The Plot

Mortal Kombat: Conquest is set centuries before the present Mortal Kombat mythology. The main characters are Kung Lao, Siro, and Taja. Outworld’s wizard Shang Tsung is defeated by Kung Lao in the tournament called Mortal Kombat and that way, the world is saved from the despicable Outworlds’s ruler Shao Kahn. Of course, that isn’t the end. Instead of having a peaceful life with his lovely Jen, Kung Lao needs to fight Shao Khan again. Defeat in the tournament didn’t stop him. He is still eager to conquer Earth And you can guess, King Lao is the one to stop him from doing that. He will have the help from his mentor Raiden (God of Thunder and Earth realm’s protector).

Shao Kahn is constantly trying to kill Kung Lao, making all kinds of schemes. Also, Shang Tsung made his mission to have Kung Lao killed. That makes a lot of trouble for our hero and his friends.

The Main Characters

The Great Kung Lao: The role of the great warrior went to actor Paolo Montalban. This character is a monk who won the last Mortal Kombat tournament. By wining the tournament over Shang Tsung, he saved the Earth realm.

Siro: Starring Daniel Berhhardt, Siro is a former Baron Reyland’s bodyguard who’s now helping Kung Lao training fighters for the next tournament.

Taja: This character is a friend of Kung Lao and Siro. She was a thief caught stealing from Baron Reyland. As a punishment for her crime, she became Baron Reyland’s servant. After his death, she remained at the trading post. She’s helping Kung Lao in his fight against the villains. Taja is portrayed by Kristanna Loken.

Shang Tsung: This evil wizard fought for Shao Kahn in the Mortal Kombat tournament. He had lost the fight and as a punishment was sent to the cobalt mines by Shao Kahn. His mission is to revenge the defeat and kill Kung Lao. Actor Bruce Locke played Shang Tsung.

Raiden: God of Thunder and protector of the Earth Realm. Because he is a god, he cannot fight in the Mortal Kombat tournament but he uses his wisdom and knowledge to guide Kung Lao and his friends. He is Kung Lao’s mentor. Raiden was portrayed by Jeffrey Meek.

Other Characters

Some characters were invented for the TV series. They weren’t originally in the game but they adapted very well. Some of them are the following.
