well rematche, as a mortal kombat fan myself, I say with a fair amount of confidence that a fan's 'fayboyism' far outweighs their desire for the movie to stay true the game. Mortal Kombat's "story", isn't that great to begin with, and a reinvention of the franchise while still keeping the things that make MK so popular, is a formula for a moderately successful film. the latest Prince of Persia film has demonstrated that: it celebrated moderate success despite going pretty far away from the game it's based on. Why? Part because it was Disney no doubt, but also because of fans. Good or bad, a fan can rarely escape the pull to see a movie about their favorite game or book or play, no matter how poorly it's adapted. I mean, how many of you poor saps saw the Dragonball movie, no doubt knowing it would be horrible? I know several of my friends did.
Hollywood will sell you on anything any way they can, if they redid MK this way, they'd have my $8 for a theater ticket, and maybe even my $20 for the DVD.
