From fake fighting scenes to visible padding of stunt men to fake uniforms to nonsense let's use fists instead of guns to bad camerawork.The script is 1/10. If they adjusted the script to make it more realistic, it would've propelled the movie to a better review and a better script just needed some common sense in some areas, like the beginning of the movie as an example. (no spoiler) translator scene didn't make any sense. A US army base of all white men with no translators yet when it came to fighting, they were all Asian men... Where's common sense? Why was it so hard to adjust the story just a tiny bit?!Then the horrible shaky camerawork in most fighting scenes. You know, my 4 year old camera can do much better. Ever heard of steadycam? Nobody like a shaky camera during intense scenes, gee, after a minute, you just want to vomit of all the motion sickness. 1/10 for directing!!
I had low exceptions and just wanted some Mortal combat fights and little story, but the movie just failed it. Even the fighting was so fake, I was literally laughing during a number of scenes. If you like WWE WWF fake wrestling fighting, you may like this movie.
It almost looks like a few people got together, put some money in and decided to make a movie to see where it bring them, All money went to set and stunts and little to everything else. The editing of the movie is actually not bad. Bad CGI would've been ok if the script was at least somewhat decent.
