* UPDATE* http://www.youtube.com/user/machinima#p/c/0/6s6UiEuCYXA - first episode of legacy

* UPDATE* Release date is 12th of april guys so less than a week http://www.joystiq.com/2011/04/06/mortal-kombat-web-series-to-debut-on-april-12/

so rebirth, hit n miss with some, i personally think it was a good alternate take on the idea of mortal kombat, and take note of how i said an ALTERNATE take, i know the mortal kombat mythos and that this has gone for a gritty realistic batman begins type approach and i do enjoy it.
anyways this has spawned a web series which should air in the next week or 2 which will lead upto a movie, whats everyones thoughts

I watched that video a while back and I think this could, (the keyword is could) be good, hopefully it will be.

i've been REALLY looking forward to this web series. that old reboot webisode thing is way cooler than any of the old mortal kombat movies were. i liked the old movies when i saw them but like, i was in uhh 6th grade when the first one was in theaters? seeing it now as an almost 30 year old man... yikes. but the reboot clip? awesome. i hope after the web series has run its course this guy directs a full length movie, or at least maybe we'll see the series on blu ray. want it.

I remember watching this a very long time ago and thought this was a good spin on an epic franchise. I remember reading that Boon liked the short and I'm glad it's getting turned into a series.

I'm interested in seeing how it turns out.

yer it got somethin ridiculous like over 10 million views, but the dark gritty take i thought was really impressive, id be interested to see how they portrayed sub zero hopefully not as somoene who has to collect diamonds to keep his wife alive ala mr freeze haha, but there is no reason that he cant be from another realm but we shall see, from what iv seen so far of the web seried it looks like it could possibly stick closer to the game with the baraka screen shot, i hope all the fight scenes are as well done as the cage baraka brawl too, only thing we gotta wait on now is a release date and official site!!

Pretty sure IGN posted that, if we're even at the point of questioning plausibility

I think it's more of a bastard offspring of kintaro and a naked mole rat

yeah i got it from ign, it's the first still i've seen of baraka anyway

the same costume and everything can be seen in the trailer
(at 1:15 he's obviously lifting some sap up with his blades)

They should of done baraka like he was in one of the mortal kombat movies, I must agree with the naked mole rat though, When I first seen him in the video I was wondering who the hell that was..

I am disappointed with how Baraka looks hopefully when in the series it may be plausible. But I do wish they stuck to
The rebirth concept
