“Mortal Kombat” filmmaker Simon McQuoid says there are some violent scenes in the movie and they didn’t tone it down in any way.
According to contactmusic.com, the film is a big-screen reboot of the R-rated video game.
The filmmaker says there was never any discussion of losing the essence of the game in the film. In an interview with TheAuReview.com, he said: “If there had ever been a conversation about this, it was long before we got involved. When I logged in, the conversations I had with the studio – it never happened, there was never anything from them.
He added, “They’ve always been very supportive and respectful of what ‘Mortal Kombat’ is and made it the best version.”
In fact, producer E. Bennett Walsh added that they were trying to amplify the action sequences for the screen. “That was the reason to do it, to do it in this space. We were trying to take the action sequences to a new level, ”he said.
