Y'all talk about Marvel movies being propaganda but they got nothing on this, and I love every ridiculous second of it.
Now watching:
Oh shit I totally forgot the legend Heidi Moneymaker was in this!
Not to harp on action editing again but you know this movie is really well edited
This Sam Hargrave guy may have a future
I really liked this the first time I watched it but I am so fucking in the bag for it now it's ridiculous

This isn't really a spoiler for MK or anything so I feel OK talking about it but if you follow me and want to make up your own mind feel free to mute this thread.

When action fans talk about too many cuts during a fight scene we're not really talking about the number of cuts
We're talking about the placement, specifically the fact that action and reaction are not in the same shot, but instead there's a cut in the middle. You see me throw a punch in close up, but instead of it landing, it cuts to a wide of it landing.
Rather than increasing the impact it serves to lessen as the viewer can't get a sense of the action and reaction, and in fact since it takes a couple of frames for our brains to catch up, we often miss the impact completely, instead registering the result
