The Mortal Kombat franchise is decades-old at this point with multiple sequels, reboots, comic book tie-ins, movie adaptations, and more. As such, there's been a myriad of interpretations of the various super-powered ninjas, monsters, and cyborgs that fight for players' amusement in the games. 2021's Mortal Kombat is no different, offering up new spins on many of the classic fighters of the franchise and adding in the concept of an Arcana power to standardize the various unconnected Kombatants. If you want to know what's been changed without playing through 20 years worth of video games, here's how the Mortal Kombat movie characters differ from the game.

Between the two Mortal Kombat movies in the late 90s and this so called Mortal Kombat reboot, majority of the fans felt like the main protagonist and other Main characters took a huge backseat in this movie, such as Liu Kang and Raiden, so the lead protagonist spot was given to a character named Cole, also another insult is that the character reptile was a bit of a let-down in this movie because he was killed off easily by Kano by having his heart ripped out.

I think the MK movie or even a sequel will not be enough to flesh out the characters and allow us fans to truly enjoy them.....MK should have been made into a SERIES...that way the developers can take their time and expand on the characters giving their back story and everything we need about them....just like in the game....a 2hr movie is not enough...we need it in a series... Who agrees?

You forgot Reiko he's a character from Mortal Kombat Gold or 4. He's appearance with glowing blue eyes and black markings on his face and he made a appearance in the movie he's that guy Jax clapped fatality after their fight.

Mortal Kombat (2021) is a totally bad movie. Shame for it. It is even worse than MK 2 (1997). Bad script, miscast, bad ost, bad special effects. It is a shame what they have done with the original plot. It is no canon. The ruined all hopes that fans had had for 24 years since MK 1997. And what the **** they did with Goro? Champion of the 9 MK tournaments was killed by no name in his 1st fight. WHAT THE **** And where is the mortal kombat tournament? The movie called MK but they only talk about mortal kombat. The film even doesnt have the mk tournament. I am angry! They ruined fan base, they ruined the canon. The director of this movie should been fired for his CRIME against MK universe

Let me see.... I'm calling BS on this entire movie. How do you have a movie about a tournament that never happens? The whole Arcana thing is bullcrap to! So someone has the dragon mark and I accidentally hit kill with my car, am I the tournaments new fighter? Cole Young, completely fictitious to the gaming franchise. I'm still trying to figure out how does he go 0 & 5 and beat Goro just because of his Arcana? Kano never had a chest laser but his eye did with a bionic implant with a faceplate and why does he look so much like Sami Zayn? Sub-Zero was extremely too powerful for this movie Shang Tsung had no swag he was all of a sudden a telekinetic The only reason nitara was in the movie was it take a fatality How do you have Mileena with no mention of Kitana or Baraka and kill her? Liu Kang looked like a scrawny little punk and didn't carry himself as a true protagonist How does the Arcana produce Kung Laos hat? How do monks have the technology and know-how to give Jax prototype cybernetic arms? They completely wasted Nathan Jones as Reiko. He's such a big guy he could have easily been Shao Kahn. Scorpion should have been in pursuit of Sub-Zero long before the final fight. In most video games Raiden looks like a tall American man. In the movie he looks like the lead singer from Gangnam Style Kabal was awesome but they completely missed out on his back story and turn him into fatality fodder.

He was made purely for the movie. Scorpion actor is pretty old and Scorpion is like Batman of MK. The coolest character. I am assuming the mantle of Scorpion will eventually be passed on to cole. No one's interested in such a lazy character. His power is literally plot armour.

I've been playing MK since the first game dropped in Arcades this movie is different from many video game movies usually the problem is the movie will focus so much on the video game part and it will end up bland but this movie was not faithful believe me I can tell plus it's kinda racist

@petter215jones Exactly, fans expect an adaptation of their favorite franchise to be perfect when with something like TMNT and MK they have decades worth of history to cram into a 30 minute per episode tv series or 1-2 hour long movie. Fans can be ungrateful, I've had my fair share of being pissed at a adaptation of something like for example the Sonic movie, it was good but it had a lot left to be desired, I still like it even for its flaws. MK fans seriously being this ungrateful makes me worry for the potential sequels but when you bite the hand that feeds you, karma will happen

Actually not really if they wouldnt introduced cole to be so important and stayed more true to the games it would have been better. Not saying the scorpion story is trash wit cole bcuz when he came back was my favorite part but making cole have a whole family to take care of puts to much importance to him to live and be a main character when we want to see more true MK characters on screen. Also i wouldnt have a problem wit the movie if they didnt kill off kung Lao by far the best fighter they had n best fighting scenes. I feel like between him n kano they made the movie more interesting. if not it would have been just no comedic scenes or some 1 who embodied the characters as much as they both did. Cole should have died scorpion comes back with the blood of cole and have coles family be some where protected. And away so the story can continue having to be more about the games and not a random character. And again i like the movie its good but it could have been better. I hope MK2 will be
