New Podcast from Kevin McLenithan on Christ and Pop Culture: Seeing and Believing 289 | Simon McQuoid’s Mortal Kombat

It’s almost May, which means the action extravaganzas are finding their way to theaters and streaming for the blockbuster season. Warner Brothers kicks things off in a big, bloody way with its stab at resurrecting the Mortal Kombat franchise for filmgoers. This time, the story they build around the gory video game brawler involves a washed-up MMA fighter named Cole (Lewis Tan) who discovers that his dragon-shaped birthmark has landed him in the thick of centuries-old blood feuds and a high-stakes fighting tournament. Does this Simon McQuoid’s film score a flawless victory, or is it another fatality in the history of misbegotten game-to-film adaptations?
