Mortal Kombat Conquest Discussion: The good, the bad, and the okay.
07/15/2003 07:09 AM EDT
We all know about the disgraceful, testosterone driven, series that was MKC. However, there were a few decent parts, episodes, and characters in the series. Personally I liked the character Vorpax, and I liked Rayden's position in the show up to when he got drunk. I also liked the episode where the main characters when evil as well as a few of the decently coreographed fight scenes that were some of the very few things that kept me watching until the end.

So in this thread, share your good and bad memories about the show, point out what kept you watching as well as what scared you away.

The good:
-VERY good acting by the main characters.
-Lots of very long fight scenes, all nicely choreographed.
-Lots of hot babes
-Cool costumes, some better than the movies.
-Better acting that the movies (especially from Kahn)
-The atmoshpere was very similar to the first MK film, which is a good thing.
-Many cool MK characters were introduced, including Quan Chi and Mileena.
-Most episodes were very well written and developed.
-Very funny jokes (especially from Rayden and Siro).
-Vorpax

The BAD
-Some cheesy and repetative special effects.
-Some of the acting from the 'guest stars' were bad, including Jen.
-Show ended way too fast... I want more MKC!

I disagree, NovaStarr. MKC absolutely kicked ass, and was by no means a bad series.

Good things:
- The acting, of course. Kristanna Loken and Jeff Meek are pure sweetness.
- The fights. the fighting styles used in the fights were pretty unique, and some of the moves were not only amazing, they were spectacular and orgasmatic.
- The music. I would pay whatever it would take to have an MKC soundtrack with the Reptile theme, the Takeda theme, the zhu zhin theme, the Cho theme, etc...Jonathan Sloate did one fine job with the music there.
- The last episode. Brilliant.
- The costumes were great aswell.
- Female beauty. Cant have an MKC episode without a hot chick walking around.

Bad things:
- Special effects. Most of them sucked.
- Bad acting by some actors...namely Bruce Locke. Can you say, overacting face?
- Hundreds of plotholes. Why didn't Sub-Zero and Scorpion strike imediatly after Shao Kahn united them? Why didn't the Lin Kuei send all their ninjas after Sub-Zero? Why didn't Kreeya just send hundreds of soldiers to take out Kung Lao instead of just Kiri and Ankha? How could Cho lose to Shang Tsung and Omegis so easily?? I guess we'll never know.

Sub-Zero, Shao Kahn, Kung Lao, Rayden, The Lin Kuei grandmasters, and Shang Tsung were HARDLY afraid of Scorpion.

THE GOOD, THE BETTER AND THE AWSOME !!!
MKC was great ! It was one of my fav. TV Shows, altough I think that it gave another praspective on the whole idea of MK ..
It indroduced the whole history of MK and how every thing happend ...
MKC explained how Scorp and Sub were created ... who was kung lao ... it introduced new characters and lots more !!!
What Im tryin' to say is that MKC Rockz !!!

More like made up how scorpion and sub were created. I like the show except the story. The storylines were crap. Some costumes were decent, some sucked very badly.

What I never understood was how they could cancel MKC and keep Beast Master on the air?! I guess that's something well never know as well.

I liked the show very much.

-The fights were cool
-There was a war between 3 different sides (Which I like)

-Shao Kahn is the most powerful Villain in the show. Not to mention the one u shouldn't screw with because he will have you whacked like he did in the series finale episode.

Well, might be something you dont' know grin.

It wasn't cancelled as such.
It was going to go on for another series at least, however I think it was due to a big mess of the financing. I think they forgot to pay the actors, so they ended up in debt, lol.
Could be wrong, but Jeff Meek talked about it at fight night.
