Mortal Kombat: Legacy Web Series Episode 6 (of 9)

More than a little disappointed by the previous two “Legacy” episodes from director Kevin Tancharoen? Join the club. Who knew a story about two women known for their skimpy attire and ass kicking abilities would end up so … what’s the word? Oh right, overwhelmingly lame. But maybe Episode 6 (of 9) — almost there, kids! — will save the day. After all, it’s all about Raiden, and even they can’t possibly screw this one up, right? Kinda reminds me of the beginning of “Thor”, actually…

The following episode represents director Kevin Tancharoen’s “different take on the Mortal Kombat universe,” combining the perfect amount of gritty realism mixed with a hint of mysticism… When Lord Raiden, God of Thunder and protector of Earth, finds himself in an earthly mental institution in the year 2011, his ‘delusions’ are treated with some rather primitive forms of therapy (involving an ECT machine and an ice pick). Nonetheless, Blue, his beautiful, fragile yet insane fellow inmate, is Raiden’s only hope of escaping the mental hospital and making his way to the Mortal Kombat tournament to defend Earthrealm from Shao Khan.

Starring Ryan Robbins as Raiden, Tracy Spiridakos as Blue, and Peter Hall as Dr. Gadsen.
