Dear Mortal Kombat: Legacy

I understand, based on your high production values, direct storytelling technique, and the overly Snyderized presentation of your action sequences, that you would like me to take you seriously. If that is, in fact, the case, I would encourage you to, in the future, not ever again feature a sequence in which a character (in this example, Kano), is thrown by an explosion-

Into a wall of empty cardboard boxes-

Which effectively break his fall-

When you're attempting to make something that is meant to be taken seriously, it's important to ask yourself “What would I have to do to create a parody of the scene I'm shooting?” If the answer is “Nothing!” then you might want to cut the offending shot from your movie.
