Video Game Theater – Mortal Kombat: Legacy Episode 6

Episode 6 of Kevin Tancharoen’s Mortal Kombat:Legacy is finally here and interestingly enough, this episode starts with a message from the director explaining that this is his personal take on the franchise. This reminder of the main objective of the web series seems quite weird, especially considering that it’s finishing really soon.

Those who disliked the last two episodes’ hand-drawn animation and were eagerly waiting for the live-action fighting sequences to come back will be happy to know that this episode has plenty of that. In this episode, Raiden arrives to our planet during a thunderstorm and wakes up in the backyard of Valleyview, a mental institution. As the hopeless cliché dictates, he is confused for a patient that displays delusions of grandeur, mainly because the character keeps repeating that he’s the God of Thunder and protector of Earth. The fact that the God of Thunder is portrayed as a helpless character which is at the mercy of a really sinister doctor makes the story quite enthralling.
