The Sequel: Because the first one was so good! Oh wait, it wasn’t. Paul W.S. Anderson’s lacklustre original was panned by game fans and critics alike, but thanks to grossing $122m (proof that even crap can earn cash) a sequel was birthed two years later.
It was worse, directed by the guy who would go on to helm The Butterfly Effect 2. We’re still baffled.
What We Would Have Preferred Instead: A revival of the Mortal Kombat V DC Universe idea, with the martial artists really put to the test against slippery superheroes.
