Andy's KSL-TV Mini-Review ‘Mortal Kombat’: The video game franchise is back and bloody on the big-screen

In this minisode, host Andy Farnsworth reviews the latest video game turned silver screen movie “Mortal Kombat.” The groundbreaking arcade game has transformed a lot over the past 30 years, and already has had two films based on the franchise, but this R-rated modern version really capitalizes on the violent visuals and a multitude of hidden easter eggs for fans of the game. In this review, Andy breaks down the story, pros-and-cons, and what parents should know before giving their teens permission to see the nearly NC-17 rated film. Beyond Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Gaming and Tech, the brains behind Fan Effect are connoisseurs of categories surpassing the nerdy. Brilliant opinions and commentary on all things geek, but surprising knowledge and witty arguments over pop culture, Star Trek, MARVEL vs DC, and a wide range of movies, TV shows, and more. Formerly known as SLC Fanboys, the show is hosted by Andy Farnsworth and KellieAnn Halvorsen, who are joined by guest-experts. Based in the beautiful beehive state, Fan Effect celebrates Utah’s unique fan-culture as it has been declared The Nerdiest State in America by TIME.    Listen regularly on your favorite platform, at kslnewsradio.com, or on the KSL App. Join the conversation on Facebook @FanEffectShow, Instagram @FanEffectShow, and Twitter @FanEffectShow. Fan Effect is sponsored by Megaplex Theatres, Utah's premiere movie entertainment company.
