Ludi Lin currently has 2 exciting projects in the pipeline. “Mortal Kombat” is set to hit local cinemas on 8th April, while “Kung Fu” is also premiering on The CW on the same date.
During our recent interview, we were lucky to meet up with the 33-year-old actor virtually to compare both of his kick-ass characters to see who would ultimately come out on top.
In terms of similarities, Liu Kang in “Mortal Kombat” and Kerwin from “Kung Fu” are both formidable opponents. Ludi elaborates, “If Liu Kang and Kerwin fought each other… Look, Kerwin can fight. He’s got a few things to his advantage. Kerwin can fight well and he’s trained ever since he’s a kid. Just like Liu Kang, he’s got a billionaire for a father. So, he’s got men on his side.”
But does one have an advantage over another? Besides his wealth, Kerwin has access to technology. “What else does Kerwin have? Kerwin has the Bentley, so he can drive away in case he’s in trouble. Liu Kang is a Shaolin monk so he’s pretty much forbidden from using technology. He just lives very simply,” the hunky star adds.
Ludi continues, “At the end of the day, if you make Kerwin stand toe to toe, he can just drive away in his Bentley and drive to the airport, jump in his G6 private plane and fly to another continent so that Liu Kang has to catch up. If he has to stand and fight, I think he would definitely be devoured by Liu Kang’s dragon.”
“But, if he could take his time and really run away and hide away on some private island so Liu Kang never finds him and waits until they’re both very, very old, and then just get his men to come and assassinate Liu Kang when he’s like 123, that may be Kerwin. But right now, at this moment, I would say Liu Kang would win,” he concludes.
So there you have it guys, the proclaimed winner from the man himself.
