‘Live-action’ Mortal Kombat video created by Youtubers offers brutally realistic fatality scenes!
WARNING: CONTAINS VIOLENCE VIEWERS MAY FIND DISTRESSING. Gamers will be impressed with the group’s obvious love of the franchise’s characters, while film fans will notice the quality of the amateurs’ film-making
A ‘real-life’ version of the savage console fighting game Mortal Kombat is taking the internet by storm after it was created by a group of talented Youtubers.
Gamers will be impressed with the group’s obvious love of the franchise’s characters and its brutal fatality scenes, while film fans will notice the quality of the film-making and special effects.
The footage starts with the friends are enjoying a barbecue, but as an argument begins the atmosphere changes and a wild, wide-ranging and increasingly ludicrous set of super-violent scenes ensue.
With the help of convincing make-up the blood and gore look pretty real – while the martial arts elements suggest the lads used stuntmen or have their own chop socky skills.
Be warned, the full-length version is extremely graphic – 18-certificate stuff – and definitely NSFW.
Mortal Kombat is a video game franchise originally developed by Midway Games’ Chicago studio in 1992. The series is known for high levels of bloody violence, including, most notably, its Fatalities.
Mortal Kombat has a history of controversy and was a significant part of the outcry that led to the creation of the Entertainment Software Ratings Board (ESRB) in the United States in 1994.
The equivalent in Britain is the Pan European Gaming Information (PEGI) system of ratings.
The tenth installment, Mortal Kombat X, is expected to outstrip the five million copies its predecessor sold, and is among the fastest selling games of 2015 so far.
The franchise has sold over 35 million copies worldwide to date.
It was created by Chicago company Midway Games in 1992, but is now owned by Warner Brothers. [source: mirror.co.uk]
