The Surprising Number Of People Who Saw Mortal Kombat And Hated It

When the "Mortal Kombat" reboot writer made the bold claim that the franchise "has never looked this good," he set a high bar for the new film adaptation. Fortunately, it appears that the new "Mortal Kombat" has pleased critics and is already considered one of the best action movies of 2021. Not only that, but it's been ranked as the second-best "Mortal Kombat" movie. With so much success, there's a good chance fans will be treated to a sequel. But do viewers want a second movie?

Just because the film performed as well as it did doesn't mean everyone has loved it. It's always difficult to impress hardcore fans, and the "Mortal Kombat" franchise is no exception. SVG set out to see how fans felt about the new "Mortal Kombat" movie by polling roughly 3.2K followers around the world, and you might be surprised to see how many people truly hated the film.

Did fans perform a "Fatality" on Mortal Kombat?

Out of the 3.2 thousand participants, a mere 5% hated the "Mortal Kombat" reboot. While this may seem like good news for the movie, only 16% loved it. Beyond that, 14% neither hated nor loved the film, and a whopping 66% of the people polled hadn't even seen it yet.

Why haven't more people watched "Mortal Kombat"? Were some turned off by newcomer character Cole Young? Was it a dealbreaker that Johnny Cage wasn't in the new "Mortal Kombat"? Whatever the case may be, the numbers still paint a fairly solid picture. Out of the total 35% of people who did see the flick, those who hated it were in the minority.

If you haven't watched the new "Mortal Kombat," it may be time to "Test Your Might" and see how it compares to the 1995 movie. From there, you can see for yourself if it was a "Flawless Victory," a "Brutality," or something in between.
