Uh-oh.Even as movies based on video games go, this movie sucks ass.
Terrible. Rather than lift the plot directly from a classic video game, the decided to make it, I don't know, more epic, I guess. It looks less like a movie and more like an amusement park gone horribly amok.
Hopper overacts. Badly. Again. Hoskins is alright, though you question signing on a Brit to play an Italian. Only Leguizamo seems to know he's in a stinkburger.
The effects are wasted, and even some of the elements that made the game cool (those boots, for example) are reduced to one-note jokes here (a wind-up bomb?).
Not even a child with the shortest attention span will get anything from this movie. Not a bit.Compared to this, Mortal Kombat was a masterpiece.
