Mortal Kombat mystery short

Live-action film reboots gaming franchise in a bloody fashion.

This has been making the rounds on the internet of late, and features Michael Jai White as Jacks (Jax) Briggs, as well as Jeri Ryan playing Sonya Blade. According to Ryan’s Twitter feed it’s not a game trailer, as many have suspected given the popular E3 videogames event that’s about to take place, but a short from a director who wanted to pitch his vision of a Mortal Kombat film to Warner Bros. Check it out below.

What did you think? A decent take on an aging property, or too little, too late?
