Over five million people have watched last week's premiere episode of Kevin Tancharoen's Mortal Kombat: Legacy web series -- an impressively-shot introduction to baddie Kano (Darren Shahlavi) and heroes Sonya Blade (Jeri Ryan) and Jax (Michael Jai White). The second episode picks up right after the explosive cliffhanger of the debut with even more eye-catching camera work, striking action, and general badassery on display, as the show dives right into the origins of Jax and Kano's infamous bionic accoutrements.
