If you are a fan of the game Mortal Kombat, you would have seen some of its adapted movies. Personally, I have seen 3—including a series—and like the game itself, these movies are action-packed and very interesting. But the game’s new adaptation by Kumawood, a Ghanaian movie industry, into a movie might be the most interesting ever.
Since the movie is Ghanaian, all the casts are black, but this doesn’t take the actions and the glamours away from the movie.
A thriller of the movie first appears on Kotaku, a news and opinion website on games, and was later shared on OMGVoice, a Facebook group with focus on African pop culture.
What I love about the movie after seeing its thriller is, even though Kumawood is regarded as a second hand movie industry that shot on low budget compared to the classic Ghallywood, the producer did a good job with costumes and animations—better than any of the previous MK movies.
As shown in the thriller, the fighting moves of the movie characters perfectly match that of the characters in the game. None of the previous movies got the fighting moves as this Ghanaian version did.
Here is a feel of the movie as posted on OMGVoice’s Facebook page:
I think the full movie is a must see and I can’t wait for the release.
