One thing’s for sure: director Kevin Tancharoen is getting away with waaaaaaaay more in these “Mortal Kombat: Legacy II” episodes than he will be able to when he finally gets that “Mortal Kombat” reboot launched in theaters. Call me nuts, but I’m reasonably certain he’s going to be limited to a PG-13 (at best) rating, which will mean very few of the F-bombs that are being dropped in “Legacy II”. Which, oddly enough, probably makes this budgeted web episodes the preferable version. If, you know, you like a lot of F-bombs with your kung-fu.

For some reason, I thought they were just going to show an episode a week like they did last time with the first series, but turns out, Machinima is releasing the whole shebang in one swoop. I have no idea if this was the plan all along or what, but it sure beats waiting. Am I right, kids?
“Mortal Kombat: Legacy II” stars Brian Tee as Liu Kang, Harry Shum, Jr. as the warlord adviser Kuai Liang, Casper Van Dien as Johnny Cage, Mark Dacascos as Kung Lao, Ian Anthony Dale as Scorpion, and Cary Tagawa as Shang Tsung, a role that he played in the original “Mortal Kombat” movie by Paul W.S. Anderson.
