The Mortal Kombat web-series has finally come to a close with the promised 9th episode featuring the origins of MK’s cybernetic ninjas, Cyrax & Sektor. The last episode sticks with the mix of fantasy and realism that the Mortal Kombat universe is known for. This episode even feature the gory transformation of these two Lin Kuei warriors into the yellow and red cybernetic ninjas we’ve all experienced using.
The cgi is superb, and the fight choreography is astounding as always. While episode 9 does seem feel a little lacking (but of course that’s an inevitable reaction since this is just a web series) it at least gives us viewers something we can repeat on watching for a while.
Episode 8 on the other hand puts us back on the fight between MK’s most famous ninjas- Scropion and Sub-zero. This time, there’s a little more action and of course this episode finally shows the final stroke that pushes Scorpion in his murderous path of revenge against Sub-zero.
After all this, I seriously hope they’re considering on creating an actual movie for MK (hopefully though when that happens, I wish the assigned director knows what he/she is doing).
