Bridgette Wilson is even a better actress than Hess, in my opinion. I have seen both of them in action (not that Hess is a bad actress, at all). Bridgette can go from school teacher, to a smart-ass tough girl.

Hudson Leick looks great. I think she could play a great Sonya, but I wouldent be to happy to have Sonya changed again.

RE: Bridgette Wilson or Sandra Hess the better Sonya?

I will give my in-depth opinion about why I did not like Sandra Hess as Sonya and why I thought she was a bad choice.

In MKA is Sonya looking so attractive all they (the crew members) cared about? As I was watching her, it seemed as though the makers cared about finding someone who they thought could fight more than they cared about find someone who could act. It also looked like they cared about finding someone who they thought looked more attractive more than they cared about fining someone who looked like Wilson! That was really offending to me too!

Sonya is not a character who had to do that much fighting. She fought more oponents than anyone else in the movie did! Kitana is a princess who the key to closing Kahn's portals they keep saying. So that's why she's a more important female character storywise. So why didn't they have her do a lot of fighting? That was one reason why they tried to make it seem like Sonya was the most important character, by having her do most of the darn fighting!

Why would she say she wanted to kill Kahn when in MK1 she refused to fight Shang Tsung b/c she knew she couldn't defeat him?!

What was up with that outfit? Just b/c Wilson wore shorts and a tank top did not mean Hess had to where that same kind of outfit (and amount of clothing) too! Apparently the makes thought that was the only way they could get Hess to look like Wilson. It it was, than I would've expected them to have her wear a black tank top, black shorts, and a long hair extension.

The moment I saw how different Hess made Sonya look, I was saying to myself, is that really Sonya? or is that a new/different character with the same name? Not only did Hess look nothing like Wilson, she also made it look as though Sonya's attitude, personality, and fighting ability had changed.

In MKA Sonya had a lot of dumb lines and fought in fights that looked really crappy, such as the mud wrestle with Mileena and the fight where Ermac created Noob Saibot.

Unlike Wilson, Hess walked around with a confused look on her face through out the movie, while Wilson had the serious look to hunt down and destroy Kano. Compared to Wilson, Hess also looked to skinny and a little to short in height. It also annoyed me to see her running around in that white tank top that was so loose, I could tell how big her boobs looked.

Finally, when we look at Wilson as Sonya, she had the face, the body, and the hair of the video game Sonya. Hess had none of these. So that's why when it comes to the appearance and the attitude here, Wilson was much more believable and true to the character. Hess' appearance and attitude of Sonya was no where near where it should've been.

I wanna know something about Hudson Leick. Where did you all hear that she was gonna be Sonya in MK3 if Hess doesn't do it? How do all know if this thing about her playing Sonya isn't just some rumour somebody made up? In reality, Hudson may not have anything to do with an MK3 movie.

If makers of the MK3 movie are wanting original cast members such as Lambert and Ashbey back. I believe their gonna want Wilson back too. Remember, Hess and Williams just got their names removed from the MK3 cast list on imdb. That must mean something.

Reptile83, I respect your opinion but I have to disagree in almost everything U said:
-------------------------------------------------
In MKA is Sonya looking so attractive all they (the crew members) cared about? As I was watching her, it seemed as though the makers cared about finding someone who they thought could fight more than they cared about find someone who could act. It also looked like they cared about finding someone who they thought looked more attractive more than they cared about fining someone who looked like Wilson! That was really offending to me too!
-------------------------------------------------
I agree there. Hess didnt look like Wilson, thats true. BUT, I totally disagree with U saying she cant act. Hess was judged bad just cause MKA sucked (for many, I like it). She did a great acting work and the fights she did (her fighting skills) were WAY MUCH better then Wilsons fight in MK1 the original movie.

In MKA Sandra did an excellent job in the fighting scenes. U could see how much they worked on them, she was way more faster and flexible then Wilson. So, in terms of fighting, Sandra Hess PROVED to do a MUCH BETTER job then Wilson in the other movie.
-------------------------------------------------
Sonya is not a character who had to do that much fighting. She fought more oponents than anyone else in the movie did! Kitana is a princess who the key to closing Kahn's portals they keep saying. So that's why she's a more important female character storywise. So why didn't they have her do a lot of fighting? That was one reason why they tried to make it seem like Sonya was the most important character, by having her do most of the darn fighting!
-------------------------------------------------
The main heroes in the movie are:
1-Liu Kang,
2-Sonya,
3-Johnny Cage, and
4-Kitana.

In that order. Sonya is the second main character after Liu Kang. U can see that in the games (she like him, has been around since the beginning). The reason Talisa Soto (Kitana) didnt do much was because shes not really great at fighting, and because she is the least most important of the main heroes. She WAS important in the movie, but seeing her fight with the ninjas in the Liu VS Smoke part, was enough to know she wasent really going to do much, and that was proved with her fight VS Sindel, that fight was awful. The acting was bad.

Sonya did fight the most, even more then Liu, that I dont know, but seriously, seeing her fight, she did a MUCH better job in the fights then the rest did. Kitana was awful, Liu was Ok but cheap, Jax was just Ok. I think they made her be around more then the rest because she did a much better job, and, she is an important character in the movie, like in the games.
-------------------------------------------------
Why would she say she wanted to kill Kahn when in MK1 she refused to fight Shang Tsung b/c she knew she couldn't defeat him?!
-------------------------------------------------
Omg, that is OBVIOUS: She was in love with Johnny Cage, Kahn killed Johnny Cage, so an angry Sonya wants to kick Kahns fat ass. Even if she knew or not she couldnt kill Tsung, the pain she felt was obvious to let anyone know she would do anything to avenge Cage. That has nothing to do with Hess “bad acting”.
-------------------------------------------------
What was up with that outfit? Just b/c Wilson wore shorts and a tank top did not mean Hess had to where that same kind of outfit (and amount of clothing) too! Apparently the makes thought that was the only way they could get Hess to look like Wilson. It it was, than I would've expected them to have her wear a black tank top, black shorts, and a long hair extension.
-------------------------------------------------
I must say I was very happy with Sonyas new look. I love the Sonya, Wilson did, but I just liked Hess better. The cloth has nothing to do with saying “Sandra played a bad Sonya”. If that was the only thing that could make her look like Wilson, then it was good. And even though she still didnt look anything like her IMO, the cloth fitted the Sonya character just well. I agree the black ones would HAD BEEN MUCH BETTER, but then again, the cloth in MKA for Sonya was fine.
-------------------------------------------------
The moment I saw how different Hess made Sonya look, I was saying to myself, is that really Sonya? or is that a new/different character with the same name? Not only did Hess look nothing like Wilson, she also made it look as though Sonya's attitude, personality, and fighting ability had changed.
-------------------------------------------------
That IS VERY TRUE. That was the only thing that disappointed me of Hess, the lack of sarcasm and attitude was TERRIBLE, that was the cool thing about Wilson in the first movie, and the best. I hated that. Sandra did show some little parts of the “attitude” with Jax and the rest, but not as much and as cool as Wilson did. In that, I DO AGREE.
-------------------------------------------------
In MKA Sonya had a lot of dumb lines and fought in fights that looked really crappy, such as the mud wrestle with Mileena and the fight where Ermac created Noob Saibot.
-------------------------------------------------
Those were actually IMO good fights. The Mileena one was one of my fave actually. I really liked that fight. Showed how really flexible Hess is. The Ermac and Noob was Ok too, but many just hate the fact Noob appeared out of Ermac (I was, what the fuck??) but still, just cause Noob came out of a place he should had never been, dosent make the fight bad. It was a good fight.
-------------------------------------------------
Unlike Wilson, Hess walked around with a confused look on her face through out the movie, while Wilson had the serious look to hunt down and destroy Kano. Compared to Wilson, Hess also looked to skinny and a little to short in height. It also annoyed me to see her running around in that white tank top that was so loose, I could tell how big her boobs looked.
-------------------------------------------------
In that I agree, but like Ive said, Wilson had the cool attitude we all love, while Hess never showed it in a big way, I really missed Sonyas attitude and sarcasm.
-------------------------------------------------
Finally, when we look at Wilson as Sonya, she had the face, the body, and the hair of the video game Sonya. Hess had none of these. So that's why when it comes to the appearance and the attitude here, Wilson was much more believable and true to the character. Hess' appearance and attitude of Sonya was no where near where it should've been.
-------------------------------------------------
Actually, Wilson looked nothing like the Sonya character of the video game back on those days:

Mk1: Sonya had short hair, LIKE SANDRA, BUT, she did had the attitude face, LIKE WILSON.
Mk2: Like Mk1.
Mk3: Long hair, attitude face, but still nothing close to Wilson.
Mk4: THIS Sonya character concept model, was actually based on Wilson. So it dosent count.
Mk5: THIS Sonya looks just like Sandra, I believe her character model was based on her, the only different thing was that we could see the attitude mean face we love about Sonya.

So, both Sonyas are true to the character in appearance, BUT in the attitude, Wilson wins.
------------------------------------------------
I wanna know something about Hudson Leick. Where did you all hear that she was gonna be Sonya in MK3 if Hess doesn't do it? How do all know if this thing about her playing Sonya isn't just some rumour somebody made up? In reality, Hudson may not have anything to do with an MK3 movie.
-------------------------------------------------
Im not sure if the info is true or just a rumor, but U can check it out here:

http://www.zerooneentertainment.org/mkr/news.html
-------------------------------------------------
If makers of the MK3 movie are wanting original cast members such as Lambert and Ashbey back. I believe their gonna want Wilson back too. Remember, Hess and Williams just got their names removed from the MK3 cast list on imdb. That must mean something.
-------------------------------------------------
IMDB. Is not a place to trust, this, said by many. Since Hess was confirmed to have a contract, maybe she will be back. I would really want to see Sandra play Sonya again, she really did a much better job then Wilson, BUT, GIVE HER THE ATTITUDE, thats the only thing, make Hess look mean, sarcastic and tough and it will all be perfect, or, just make Wilson fight faster and more flexible, and it will be perfect too.

So in conclusion, as much as I love Wilson, Hess did do a much better job. Both are hot, so I dont care. But the only thing Wilson had that Sandra missed, was the attitude, no more, no less.

IMO, Samdra was a better Sonya. She did a much better job in fighting then Wilson, she was faster and flexible, she even fought the most in all the movie! Both are VERY hot, so about that, there is no competition.

The only thing Sandra missed was the cool perfect attitude Wilson gave Sonya in the first movie. I loved the sarcasm and mean face Wilson did to make the Sonya we all love! That was the best of Wilson! But dont get me wrong, Wilson did an excellent job, 10/10, but in terms of who acted better in fighting, I go with Sandra, Wison had the attitude.

So, I would really want to see Sandra play Sonya again, she really did a much better job then Wilson, BUT, GIVE HER THE ATTITUDE, thats the only thing, make Hess look mean, sarcastic and tough and it will all be perfect, or, just make Wilson fight faster and more flexible, and it will be perfect too.

So in conclusion, as much as I love Wilson, Hess did do a much better job. Both are hot, so I dont care. But the only thing Wilson had that Sandra missed, was the attitude, no more, no less. BTW, the Sonya character model of Mk4 was based on Wilson, and the MKDA Sonya was based on Sandra, they only added the attitude mean face from Wilson.

RE: Bridgette Wilson or Sandra Hess the better Sonya?

Queve,why are you bashing my thoughts and opinions about Hess and Wilson?!?! I think it's b/c you don't wanna except waht I said on the topic! That shows you don't respect my opinion! Everything you just said might be an in-depth opinion but it's NONSENSE! You just say all that b/c you like Hess better, so that's why you don't wanna believe she had more things wrong with her! These also don't sound like your opinions, I think your trying to make them look like facts.

Now here I go, I'm gonna reply to what you've said.

When I say Hess couldn't act in MKA, that means when she said something serious, she didn't sound or look serious about it (unlike Wilson). In other words, she looked rather too calm about it. I don't think the fights she fought in were better, like I said they looked stupid. It's a fact that Hess does not have a background in martial arts, so even though she was fighting she still didn't look like a REAL fighter to me. I'm sure if Wilson got intensive training somewhere for 3-5 months she would look 6 times better. In the MK1 movie they chose her b/c she'd done some fighting in her previous movies such as Last Action Hero and Billy Madison. Hess never did fist fighting in her previous movies. Actually Wilson is flexible too! She did kick her leg high when she fought in MK1. Oh and Wilson did do everything on her own, but Hess didn't. That leg toss and a few other parts was done by a stunt double.

Where does it say Sonya is the second main hero? Even if thats a fact so what! That doesn't mean she had to do most of the fighting! It looked like they tried making her the main character out of the whole thing b/c they gave her so much camera attention and they had her fight more opponents than everyone else did. That's not how it should've looked. If Talisa Soto is not great at fighting to you, than why did they use her again? The games do not say she is very important. Actually a character named Kung Lao was missing from MKA and he's the most important after Liu Kang (in reality). How do you explain that? That was another reason I hated MKA, not having Kung Lao in it and he's one of my favs.
Again your not being specific, how did she fight better than everyone else?

If she wanted to kill Kahn b/c she was so upset about Johnny than WHY didn't she try going after him in the final fight scenes?! Theres got to be a meaning to that now. I did not say her wanting to kill Kahn had someting to do with her bad acting!

How did the cloth fit Sonya's characer just well? It didn't even look like a warrior outfit. In reality a military woman would not wear shorts and a tank top while she's out to war. I'm a female here, I don't like to watch women run around half-naked for a whole movie. I'm still saying why didn't they give Hess a hair extension like they did for Musetta Vander??? Apparently they were too lazy and careless about it!

No Queve, I thought they were bad fights and they were not appealing to me. Your meant to like that mud wrestling b/c your a guy. That mud fight was also too short and pointless. In Mortal Kombat reality, 2 fighters would've fought in a huge puddle of blood in place of that crappy mud wrestle. Ermac creating Noob looked stupid and the way she killed Ermac looked unrealistic.

I am not counting what Wilson looked like in the earlier MK games. Wilson, the way I saw it had the face from all the games! She also had the long hair like Sonya from the 3rd and 4th game. If the MK5 look is based on Hess than that doesn't count either! But to me, I do NOT think Hess looks like the MKDA Sonya, I think people think that b/c of her hair. Wilson would look like MKDA Sonya if her hair was that length. Also Wilson got Sonya's face and height (5'9) from MKDA. In MK1 and MKDA Sonya'a hair is not even as short as Hess'.

I don't believe what MKR says either. They don't even explain where they got that from.

IMDB is also said to be a reliable source too. They accept whatever fans send them.

I don't believe that about HEss having a contract to a third movie. On an interview with Lawrence Kananoff he said that just b/c some actors such as Shou have a contract to a third movie doesn't mean their gonna be in it.

In conclusion, most vote Wilson better b/c Hess (out of the two) had more things wrong with her.

Reptile83, you need to calm the HELL down, okee dokee? Queve is not bashing your opinion, he's simply saying his opinion. And if his opinion sounds like a fact to you, well that's a good thing, isn't it?

And you say if Wilson got intense training, she'd be better then Hess. Well uh, excuse me, but dont you agree that if Hess got intense training, she'd be better than Wilson again?
Wilson might've done all her fighting, but SO WHAT? Her fighting was crap. She couldn't even do high roundhouses, so Trevor Goddard had to act like an idiot and crouch low just so Wilson could kick him. Her fight was completely retarded, her stance and her moves looked retarded, she wasn't flexible at all. Seriously, when I see her stance in the mk movie, I'm all ''what the hell is wrong with you!?''. Just because Wilson did all her fighting, and Hess had a stunt double for a couple moves, doesn't make Wilson better in any way at all.
Oh my god, I just read the last part of your post, and NOW you really sound stupid, no offense, but seriously, you're not thinking before you type. Mileena vs Sonya- that fight was LONGER than Kano vs Sonya. And there was no puddle of blood where Kano and Sonya fought, now was there? Oh, and how did the way Sonya killed Ermac looked unrealistic? The neck breaking in that fight was WAY more realistic than the Kano vs Sonya one, because you can CLEARLY see that Trevor's holding Wilson's legs, and his neck is not stuck at all. Damn, that fight was probably one of the worst fights in movie history.
You're the one who's making no sense at all. You need to calm down.

No Zentile, I think you need to calm the HELL DOWN!!! You sound like your the one over reacting about my post here! I mean look at you, I think your trying to act like Mr. Know-it-all. Oh and unlike Queve you couldn't respond to everything I said. So that must mean you can't win buddy! I think you just said all that crap b/c your purposly taking Queve's side and you obviously have the same opinion he does! If you've got nothing nice to say to me about my thoughts than do me a favor and SHOVE OFF!!!!! For you information queve was bashing me b/c he was too busy telling me what I like is wrong.

I did NOT say Wilson would be better than Hess if she got intensive training. I said if Wilson got intensive training somewhere she would be 6 times better than she was in the first movie. I also did NOT say Sonya and Kano would have fought in blood. I said in MK reality (in the game story) 2 characters (could be anyone of them), one good and one evil would've fought each other in a huge puddle of blood. God you don't listen to what I'm saying here!

SO WHAT UH? Well if you think Wilson's fighting was crap than why do you think they chose her to do it? I think her fighting was fine. Oh just like queve your not saying that like an opinion your trying to say it like it's a fact! I don't think your listening to yourself. When a person needs a stunt double to do things for them, that shows their not able to do everything on their own. Being able to do everything on your own is what counts more!

Don't say I sound stupid when you don't know crap about me! I DO REREAD WHAT I TYPE!!!!!!!!!! I do NOT think that mud fight was longer than Sonya vs Kano! The way she killed Ermac looked unrealistic b/c she broke his neck with her ankles while she was standing up! Now who in real has done that before?

There are some things I forgot to mention earlier on my first post here.

The lines I couldn't stand hearing Sonya say were,
"Left overs are fine for me"
"You lost Kitana and picked up her?"
"Oh give us a break Rayden, we've been through hell" No duh sherlock.
"Whenever your ready Rayden"
"Does that mean what I think it does"

That's all I can think of for now.

''No Zentile, I think you need to calm the HELL DOWN!!! You sound like your the one over reacting about my post here! I mean look at you, I think your trying to act like Mr. Know-it-all. Oh and unlike Queve you couldn't respond to everything I said. So that must mean you can't win buddy! I think you just said all that crap b/c your purposly taking Queve's side and you obviously have the same opinion he does!'' - Well yeah, I tend to back up other people who share my opinion. Dont you?
''If you've got nothing nice to say to me about my thoughts than do me a favor and SHOVE OFF!!!!!'' - And if you've got nothing nice to say about my thoughts you shove off aswell, please.
'' For you information queve was bashing me b/c he was too busy telling me what I like is wrong.'' - People exchange opinions and prove each other wrong everyday without ''bashing''. This is bashing :
''Hey stupid! you so stupid you cant even be unstupid!'' now that's bashing. What Queve did was not bashing.

''I did NOT say Wilson would be better than Hess if she got intensive training. I said if Wilson got intensive training somewhere she would be 6 times better than she was in the first movie.'' - OK, and if Hess got six months of intense training she'd be six times better than she was in MKA aswell. What's your point?
'' I also did NOT say Sonya and Kano would have fought in blood. I said in MK reality (in the game story) 2 characters (could be anyone of them), one good and one evil would've fought each other in a huge puddle of blood.'' - And how is that important to the subject?
'' God you don't listen to what I'm saying here!'' - I listen, and I try my best to make it sound like your making sense.

''SO WHAT UH? Well if you think Wilson's fighting was crap than why do you think they chose her to do it? '' - uh...bad choice?
''I think her fighting was fine.'' - Well, see, that's your problem. Her fighting was crap, she did nothing but a couple jabs and VERY low roundhouses.
'' Oh just like queve your not saying that like an opinion your trying to say it like it's a fact! I don't think your listening to yourself.'' - And you're not?
'' When a person needs a stunt double to do things for them, that shows their not able to do everything on their own. Being able to do everything on your own is what counts more! '' No, it doesn't. Because if Wilson had to do what Hess did, she would probably need a stunt double for almost EVERY move. I'm sure Hess could've done everything Wilson did in her fight with Kano much better.

''Don't say I sound stupid when you don't know crap about me! I DO REREAD WHAT I TYPE!!!!!!!!!! '' I dont need to know you to know that you are sounding stupid. And aparantly, you dont read or reread what you type. You are making no sense.
''I do NOT think that mud fight was longer than Sonya vs Kano!'' - Well then, get a watch and time it for yourself. You'll see Sonya and Mileena's fight was longer. This issue is not about opinions, the Mileena vs Sonya fight WAS longer than the Kano vs Sonya fight. Time it if you want, you'll see.
''The way she killed Ermac looked unrealistic b/c she broke his neck with her ankles while she was standing up! Now who in real has done that before?'' - And who in reality has broken someone's neck with her/his knees while being lied down before? Again, you make no sense.

Oh, and all the lines Sonya did in MKA were obviously not written by Hess, so you cant blame her if they sounded cheesy out of her mouth. They would sound cheesy if they'd come out of Wilson too.

RE: Bridgette Wilson or Sandra Hess the better Sonya?
07/31/2003 03:36 PM EDT
Reptile83, first of all, Im sorry U misunderstood all I said. I was NEVER bashing your thoughts, LIKE I SAID in the first part of my post, I had to DISSAGREE and I gave MY opinion contradicting and agreeing on what U said, I NEVER SAID your thoughts were not important, or that they were nonsense or stuff like that. Now, if U think what I posted sounded as a FACT, Im sorry (again) U misunderstood me in that too. I never said it as a FACT, like I said, I was giving MY opinion, not talking general.

Now U said:
-----------------------------------
Everything you just said might be an in-depth opinion but it's NONSENSE! You just say all that b/c you like Hess better, so that's why you don't wanna believe she had more things wrong with her! These also don't sound like your opinions, I think your trying to make them look like facts.
-----------------------------------
Listen, for your information, the first time I saw or knew who Hess was, was in MKA. I NEVER knew her from other movies or whatever, and like I said, IN MY OPINION, I thought Hess was a much better fighter then Wilson. I also never said Wilson was bad or anything, I LOVE the fight she did with Kano and her acting is excellent! BUT comparing her fights with Hess, Hess was much better. In acting, LIKE I SAID MANY TIMES, I loved Wilsons attitude and all MUCH MORE then Hess, but that dosent make Hess be a bad actress, just cause she missed that part dosent make her worst then Wilson.
-----------------------------------
When I say Hess couldn't act in MKA, that means when she said something serious, she didn't sound or look serious about it (unlike Wilson). In other words, she looked rather too calm about it.
-----------------------------------
Ok then, U didnt clear that up in your first post I agree in that, she didnt have the personality Wilson gave the Sonya we love. Thats right, but what U posted before sounded much more as saying Hess sucked and sucks in acting.
-----------------------------------
I don't think the fights she fought in were better, like I said they looked stupid. It's a fact that Hess does not have a background in martial arts, so even though she was fighting she still didn't look like a REAL fighter to me.
-----------------------------------
Thats good then. What I did before was give MY opinion, I never “bashed” your opinions about Hess fights at all, I just gave my points contradicting yours, MY opinion. If U think Hess fights and all were bad, thats great, thats what U think, and I gave my thoughts too, so U cant say I went “bashing” all you wrote.
-----------------------------------
I'm sure if Wilson got intensive training somewhere for 3-5 months she would look 6 times better. In the MK1 movie they chose her b/c she'd done some fighting in her previous movies such as Last Action Hero and Billy Madison. Hess never did fist fighting in her previous movies. Actually Wilson is flexible too! She did kick her leg high when she fought in MK1. Oh and Wilson did do everything on her own, but Hess didn't. That leg toss and a few other parts was done by a stunt double.
-----------------------------------

Omg, like Zentile said, having a double dosent make U be a worse actor/actress then others. Wilson didnt need a double cause in Mk1 she never did that kind of high moves and all. I say AGAIN, I love Wilson, shes one of my fave actresses for the way she played Sonya, so DONT GET ME WRONG. And BTW, we are talking about how they fought in the movie, so there is no need to say “If Wilson had gotten intensive training somewhere for 3-5 months she would look 6 times better”,,, what was made is what counts. Hess would also had done even a much better job then what she did in MKA in MY opinion if she had gotten extra months.
-----------------------------------
Where does it say Sonya is the second main hero? Even if thats a fact so what! That doesn't mean she had to do most of the fighting! It looked like they tried making her the main character out of the whole thing b/c they gave her so much camera attention and they had her fight more opponents than everyone else did.
-----------------------------------
Like I said, I dont know why they did that, but either way, I like it, and judging from all the Mk games and the movies (even though they dont mean much to the games) U can see Sonya as the second main hero character.
-----------------------------------
If Talisa Soto is not great at fighting to you, than why did they use her again? The games do not say she is very important. Actually a character named Kung Lao was missing from MKA and he's the most important after Liu Kang (in reality). How do you explain that? That was another reason I hated MKA, not having Kung Lao in it and he's one of my favs.
Again your not being specific, how did she fight better than everyone else?
-----------------------------------
Talisa is a very good actress, she did do a decent fight with Liu in Mk1, but in MKA she didnt look as strong or confident, she seemed weak and slow. I think the way she fighted Sindel was very poorly done. She has become an important character to the games as to the movies. She is one of the main heroes and very popular, but in the movies, she isnt taken to seriously About kung Lao, well, its clear IM NOT the director or producer of the movie so I CANT explain WHY he wasnt in MKA. And yes, he sure is the 2nd most important hero character after Liu, but sense he wasnt in any of the movies, there is not much to talk about him.
-----------------------------------
If she wanted to kill Kahn b/c she was so upset about Johnny than WHY didn't she try going after him in the final fight scenes?! Theres got to be a meaning to that now. I did not say her wanting to kill Kahn had someting to do with her bad acting!
-----------------------------------
Lets see, wouldnt it had looked stupid to see Sonya run into Lius fight and try to kill Kahn all by her self acting like a stupid little girl risking her live and distracting Liu and all??? BESIDES, Liu HAD to kill Kahn himself, that is what MK is about. I know it can be different but dont take the games and movies that seriously! Thats how it had to be. Liu winning, Sonya thinking before acting, movie stuff.
-----------------------------------
How did the cloth fit Sonya's characer just well? It didn't even look like a warrior outfit. In reality a military woman would not wear shorts and a tank top while she's out to war. I'm a female here, I don't like to watch women run around half-naked for a whole movie. I'm still saying why didn't they give Hess a hair extension like they did for Musetta Vander??? Apparently they were too lazy and careless about it!
-----------------------------------
Well, to me it fitted good to her, like I said , it COULD had been better in black and all, but the way it was, was passable.
-----------------------------------
No Queve, I thought they were bad fights and they were not appealing to me. Your meant to like that mud wrestling b/c your a guy. That mud fight was also too short and pointless. In Mortal Kombat reality, 2 fighters would've fought in a huge puddle of blood in place of that crappy mud wrestle. Ermac creating Noob looked stupid and the way she killed Ermac looked unrealistic.
-----------------------------------
Thats Ok, thats your opinion and I gave mine, there is nothing more to discuss about the fights. BUT, why do U judge me without knowing me at all???? Saying I liked that mud fight JUST cause Im a guy is stupid. How do U know??? I did like it but never found anything to get horny about, there was nothing exotic in that fight, so dont go there saying as “a fact” what is on my head. LIKE I SAID, to ME it was an awesome fight full of high kicks, flying bodies falling in hard rocks and floor, and cool Sais wanting to take your head out. Even though both chicks looked hot, ther was nothing to get “hot” about so dont talk without knowing.
-----------------------------------
I am not counting what Wilson looked like in the earlier MK games. Wilson, the way I saw it had the face from all the games!
-----------------------------------
Again, U never clear that up in your other post, there, U said that Hess didnt even look as the Sonya of the games, U never said anything about Wilson so it sounded as if Wilson did look. But now, U add that that was your opinion, then thats fine, cause to me, she looks nothing like the Sonya in Mk1, Mk2 and Mk5.
-----------------------------------
She also had the long hair like Sonya from the 3rd and 4th game. If the MK5 look is based on Hess than that doesn't count either! But to me, I do NOT think Hess looks like the MKDA Sonya, I think people think that b/c of her hair. Wilson would look like MKDA Sonya if her hair was that length. Also Wilson got Sonya's face and height (5'9) from MKDA. In MK1 and MKDA Sonya'a hair is not even as short as Hess'.
-----------------------------------
Thats all good, is your opinion. The hair to me is short enough to make it look like Hess and its not long enough to make it look as Wilson in Mk1 and MkDA. But I dont understand what U mean by saying Wilson has Sonyas face and height from MKDA.
-----------------------------------
I don't believe what MKR says either. They don't even explain where they got that from.
IMDB is also said to be a reliable source too. They accept whatever fans send them.
-----------------------------------
About MKR I do believe some things he says that could be true.
-----------------------------------
I don't believe that about HEss having a contract to a third movie. On an interview with Lawrence Kananoff he said that just b/c some actors such as Shou have a contract to a third movie doesn't mean their gonna be in it.
-----------------------------------
I know that, I never said I was 100% sure Hess was coming back.
-----------------------------------
In conclusion, most vote Wilson better b/c Hess (out of the two) had more things wrong with her.
-----------------------------------
Then good for U, like I said a million times, I RESPECT your opinion.

I'm gonna tell you what you're gonna do. You're gonna calm down and stop trying to pick an argument out of someoene who's just trying to make a post. There's absolutely no reason to get worked up about it. Keep the peace, or I'll have to end up closing this, and I really don't want to do that.

How can U tell Zentile he is the one who needs to calm down when U are acting in a very, omg, “strange” way. Even if that was sarcasm, U did sounded as if U needed to calm down.

What is wrong with U? I talked nicely to you WITHOUT insulting or anything. Nobody owns U and nobody is telling U to do something stupid, he just told U to calm down. Nobady insulted U (at least I didnt) and no, I didnt start any argument and no, I dont need anyone to “stand up” for me. I like U, gave my opinion, so just leave it there, stay calm.

-Peace.

No, but I AM going to tell you what to do, and this the last time I'm saying it. Knock off the bullshit arguing, get the topic back on track, or this thread is closed and skulls are getting passed out. No more warnings.

I'm gonna be as nice and calm as I can here.
Sorry Queve but I didn't think you were trying to be nice b/c you were replying to me about my post and nobody else's on this topic. I felt insulted b/c you only did it to me. Can you tell me why you only did it to me and nobody else? Why couldn't you give your opinion about this in your own words instead of replying to what I had to say. Don't you realize none of this would've happened if you'd left me alone? That's all I wanna know.

Oh my, Purple Bunny I can't believe it. How can you sound so vicious for a forum moderator? I can still look at this topic on other MK forums.

I'm not vicious, just irritated that I've told you to knock it off, and you didn't. And because I've told you twice to knock it off, and you're STILL egging it on, this thread is closed.

And no, you cannot view this topic on other forums, because none of the other forums involve the MK movie.

I hate closing threads, especially when they start out civil, but if it's the only way to get you to stop dragging it off-topic and to show you that I'm serious when I say to stop it, then so be it.

End of discussion.
