From the minds behind some of the biggest DC Comics animated projects comes the biggest Mortal Kombat animated movie yet!


Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms
Studio: Warner Bros. Animation
Release Date: Aug. 31, 2021

Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms picks up shortly after the explosive finale of Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge, the 2020 blockbuster hit that initiated these animated films – which are based on one of the most popular videogame franchises in history.

In Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms, our team of heroes are besieged by the enemy forces of Shao Kahn – forcing Raiden and his group of warriors into a deal to compete in a final Mortal Kombat that will determine the fate of the realms. Now our heroes must travel to Outworld in order to defend Earthrealm and, simultaneously, Scorpion must find the ancient Kamidogu before it’s used to resurrect the One Being – which would mean certain destruction of all things in the universe. Time is short and the stakes are high in this action-packed continuation of the Mortal Kombat journey.

Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms is directed by Ethan Spaulding (Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge, Batman: Assault on Arkham) from a script by Jeremy Adams (Supernatural, Justice Society: World War II) and 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. Jim Krieg (Batman: Gotham by Gaslight) is Producer. Executive Producer is Sam Register. Ed Boon (NetherRealm Studios) is Creative Consultant.

I liked it, but the merging of the realms at the end was way too rushed. I kinda wish we had more of that, instead a good chunk of the film was another tournament.

Other thoughts:
-I did like Raiden giving up his immortality- it felt like a rebuttal to Mortal Kombat Annihilation's "I will pray for you all."
-Sub-Zero and Scorpion fighting in the cavern with the air currents reminded me of Mythologies: Sub-Zero.
-Stryker and Kung Lao's fatalities... yowza. Those who have seen it know what I mean.
-I wish they kept in one of the outtakes Joel McHale used for one of Johnny Cage's come-on lines to Sonya- the one about their genitals. It was already rated R anyway, why not keep it in?
-Liu Kang morphing into the dragon at the end was pretty cool.
-Pleased to see so many characters from the MK universe here, even some of the more recent games, even if they didn't have time to develop most of them past "here's another opponent that needs defeating".

A lot of preposterous Mortal Kombat fun. It's not "Hamlet" by any means, in fact the story is kind of all over the place (especially towards the end), but if you like Johnny Cage quips, and lots male vs female, female vs female martial arts action, you'll like this one. A decent successor to Scorpion's Revenge.

They sure crammed a lot of content into this movie, that's for sure. When I rewatched it with commentary I was thinking, "Wow, there were a lot of set pieces in this movie, weren't there?"

Maybe this could be attributed to how this movie (much like the previous movie) is 80 minutes long. I think the pacing is good, but having at least 5 more minutes would help out.

I think they also tried to throw in content from more than one Mortal Kombat game (I think they kind of condensed the plots of 2 and 3).
