Fist of the Mortal blind Swordsman

Really enjoyable MK film to watch, been a fan of Kenshi for a long time that's why I bought this on Blu-ray. The pros that I like are the relation between Kenshi and Sub-Zero, Kenshi as a character, the post-apocolyptic setting and Kenshi's radar view, the cons is that it felt rushed in plot & character dev, the art style, and the final act was given to the mentor rather than Kenshi.

Overall a fun but not so perfect film, definitely good enough although I consider this non-canon, they manage to bring Kenshi to film first time in the most cool way (though he seems to similar to his son, Takeda).

Not the best of additions to the "Mortal Kombat" franchise...

I sat down to watch the 2022 animated movie "Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind" with my son. And I have to admit that I was not familiar with all the characters in this storyline. But then again, I haven't been playing the games for a long, long time, so I don't keep up with who is in the franchise.

I have seen the 2021 animated movie "Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms" and the 2020 animated movie "Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge" as well. And of these three, then this 2022 is the weakest addition to the "Mortal Kombat" franchise, simply because the storyline is all over the place, and there isn't really much to keep your attention to the various characters. So writer Jeremy Adams didn't exactly impress with the storyline here.

Visually then "Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind" is good. You know what you get when you sit down to watch something like this; an abundance of fighting and over-the-top violence. And yeah "Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind" offers that as well, and that is one of this particular animated movies strongest aspects. But it is hardly enough to make it worthwhile watching.

The art and animation style used in "Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind" is adequate. It does look and feel like it belongs in the "Mortal Kombat" franchise.

The voice acting, since this is an animated movie, is adequate, though there wasn't a single familiar voice on the cast list, aside from David Wenham. I didn't recognize his voice though, and it was only when I perused the cast listing on IMDb that I realized it was him.

"Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind" is something for the hardcore fans of the "Mortal Kombat" franchise, for sure. For a casual viewer, then this is adequate enough for a single viewing, then you forget about it and move on.

My rating of "Mortal Kombat Legends: Snow Blind" from director Rick Morales lands on a bland five out of ten stars.

The return of Sub-Zero

Though trailers heavily implied that the main protagonist would be the blind swordsman, it turns out that they were quite misleading. Same can be said of the chief villain. If you were expecting to see the grand finale between Kenshi and Shang Tsung, you're in for the U-turn, as this is much more of a Sub-Zero's redemption arc than anything else.

Set in the dystopian future, after the Battle of the Realms, Snow Blind tells the story of an unlikely alliance between young and arrogant fighting prodigy named Kenshi and seasoned warrior Kuai Liang, the former leader of the deadly Lin Kuei clan, who is haunted by his past and withholds the power that could shape the future. After the former is deprived of his eyesight, courtesy of Shang Tsung, Kuai Liang reluctantly accepts to train him in the new ways. The ways which would, via the use of the magical sword, allow the young man's other senses to develop to the point of replacing his sight and further improving his fighting abilities. After Kenshi is captured by the King Kano's gang, a pack of bloodthirsty wasteland pirates gathered around the cyborg, Kuai Liang is left with no choice but to forsake his self-imposed pacifist lifestyle in an attempt to free his protegee. With the aid of Scorpion, an immortal demonic entity, he once again assumes the identity of fearsome Sub-Zero and takes on the pirates utilizing his godlike freezing powers to their max. The gruesome final conflict takes place in the Kronika's sanctuary, now occupied by King Kano. It is revealed that Kano was manipulating time and the events in order to establish himself as the ruler supreme in the present. Sub-Zero is forced to push himself to the very brink to stop Kano's temporal menace once and for all.

Though story lacks the scale of the previous entry, it is probably for the best. In this MK meets Mad Max sequel, we get a decent blend of old and new characters, but, since MKL continuity is not canon, there's a nice twist to them. If you are an MK fan, you may find this movie enjoyable. Otherwise, there's not much to write home about. Unnecessary blood and gore galore. Still, it manages to be the most original and somehow the overall best entry in the MK Legends series so far.
