I have the strangest taste in movies.

I'll admit it, I liked the original Mortal Kombat movie. My favorite character was Rayden, Christopher Lambert's character. I thought he was incredible.

I avoided Mortal Kombat: Annihilation mainly because the same characters were there, but not all of the same actors. Lambert had been replaced, and I didn't think that whoever the new guy was could've come close to how I liked Rayden -- basically a trickster god with a heart.

Now there's going to be a third movie -- Mortal Kombat: Domination, due out sometime in '04. The original actors for Liu Kang, Kitana, Johnny Cage, and Rayden will be back. *cheers* I don't care if this movie ends up being direct-to-video, I'm going to see it.

The question is, should I see Annihilation first? I've heard it's not very good. Has anyone out there seen it?

Update: Nope, not gonna see Annihilation unless someone pays me. I'll stick with the original.

Don't waste your time.
Didn't we have this discussion a few days ago? I remember talking to someone rather in-depth about the new Mortal Kombat movie. 8-/

I think that was me. :-) What can I say, it's too early in the morning to remember even what I did yesterday. Okay, so no Annihilation for me. Some sequels will never measure up.

...and Annihilation is just not worth it. It was horrible. They tried to stuff as many MK characters into 1.5 hours as they could. They acting was horrible, and the storyline was lacking heavily.

Eeek! Okay, that sounds like either the ultimate MST3K movie or the ultimate drinking game movie.

Probably a little bit of both. 8-/

I can't believe you actually saw the movie.

I couldn't help myself. The first one was pretty decent. I wasn't expecting much from the second one, but I sure as heck wasn't suspecting it to be such a rotten bomb.
