Though there are a lot of moves and a lot of slick tricks you can pull off in the Mortal Kombat games, the highlight, the cherry on top of any match, is the fatality. Seeing the roster of characters get hacked apart, ripped up, completely eviscerated: that is what the Mortal Kombat games are all about. And the actors starring in the new Mortal Kombat film surely had to study these murderous moments before they appeared in the movie. So, we decided to test them.
In our new interview with two stars of the new Mortal Kombat film, we ask the actors to play a little game of charades - but with a twist. Ludi Lin, who plays Liu Kang, and Max Huang, who plays Kung Lao, go head to head to see who can work out which fatality belongs to which character, from the world of Mortal Kombat.
Watch our entire interview - well, fatalities charades - with Ludi Lin and Max Huang below:
Though these two actors are badasses in the film, it's actually sort of adorable to see them struggle to identify these moves. The confusion, the hints, and the facial expressions as they do their best to decipher their opposition's character is a joy to watch.
Outside of the charades (watch the video above to see how they fare), they talk just a little about how much their roles mean to them. Ludi Lin says that the role meant "that my childhood meant something. That it wasn't just time wasted, you know? It was time well wasted. And I hope when people see this movie they get the same feeling as well."
Max goes on to add: "Same for me, I think it's a huge privilege, to get the chance to portray Kung Lao because he's such an iconic character and he somehow became my alter ego now. I mean he's with me all the time. Whenever I wear a hat, a baseball cap, or whatever, I just jump into character."
It was a pleasure talking to these two and Mortal Kombat is out now if you're interested in experiencing it yourself.
