Shenny returns to Film Roar to talk about the film reboot of Mortal Kombat. With a renewed boost of popularity as a premier fighting game, Mortal Kombat makes a third attempt to capture the bloody martial arts with a cinematic lens. Does it finally deliver a flawless victory to the franchise fans and new audiences or will it take yet another fatality? Iain and Shenny discuss and dissect the new film.

Following on from the review of The Mitchells vs The Machines in our last episode, Shenny uses his movie recommendation of the episode to shares his own thoughts on viewing the popular Netflix movie and also talk about a very “interesting” YouTube video discussion of Space Jam: A New Legacy.
