  • The cartoon follow up to the film. This series follows the good MK characters as they try to save Earth.

    This short series was released, as a follow up to the 1995 film adaption of the MK games. This in itself seems a rather odd choice, as the cartoon in itself is aimed at younger children but the film was rated '15'.
    I have long been a fan of the MK series, and was lucky enough to happen across the DVDs in a second-hand store, buying the lot for £3. Rather dissapointingly the DVD order was severely compromised, and was actually missing the episode "Sting of the Scorpion" however it was still a worthwhile purchase.
    The series itself follows the good characters from the series, as they attempt to save Earthrealm from being torn appart by its weakening Dimensional Fabric. Each episode features Rayden giving the team a mission in a "Charlies Angels" style, and then proceeds to follow the others in their attempts to fullfill it, normally focusing more on the story between 1 or 2 characters.
    A great feature of the series is that it tries to give you some backstory for the characters, including my personal favourite - a cartoon version of the "Element that Brings Life" scene from the film.

    All told, the series is a follow on to a film which wasn't greatly recieved, and doesn't follow any canon storyline, but it is more than worthwhile for either avid MK or Anime fans, or just for someone looking for something to take up a little time.
