R for strong bloody violence throughout and some language.
Definitely an interesting move on WBs part. Make a random MK animated movie, based on the original trilogies story, using Mortal Kombat 10s designs after Mortal Kombat 11 has been out for almost a year and will have more content coming to it for another year. Im ok with this, its just a very weird cross promotional thing that feels odd.
