"We're getting pretty tired of video game movie failures, aren't we? We've had several down the pipeline now, including Max Payne (as stylish as it was, it still sucked), Hitman (no Vin Diesel, no sale), Street Fighter (both the old and new versions), Doom (snicker) and several others. So far, it seems like only one has really gotten the tone and rhythm of the video game realm just right, while at the same time being an enjoyable popcorn-eating movie experience. That movie is Mortal Kombat.
