Remember that awesome Mortal Kombat promo movie that made the rounds on the ‘net awhile back?
Well, despite talk of lawsuits early on, as promised; the makers of said video debuted the first in a series of web exclusive episodes for a project titled Mortal Kombat Legacy.
While I’m unable to watch the video at the moment, due to supremely bad connection speeds on my folk’s computers; I figured I’d post an announcement for this given that I was really looking forward to it.
Anyway, I haven’t watched it yet; so I have no thoughts or opinions to voice on it, but I will say this:
In the few seconds of footage I was able to stream (without sound mind you) I happened to see Darren Shahlavi in the cast.
For those that are unaware, Shahlavi is an English martial artist and actor with a decent pedigree in Hong Kong cinema, most notably/recently as the villain Twister in Ip Man 2.
While the man has, quite literally; some of the most laughable acting skills I’ve seen in awhile, he’s a tremendously talented screen fighter, so I’d be curious to see how he fares/who he plays in Mortal Kombat.
Anyway, I think I’m done now.
Feel free to post your thoughts on what you thought of this, spoilers are very much welcome given that I really won’t be able to watch this until I get another new computer…
