...[MORTAL KOMBAT] arrives on the big screen with terrific, high-energy panache. A martial arts action-adventure with wondrous special effects and witty production design...
Los Angeles Times
Rating: 3/5 -- Bad actors in lead roles, sometimes poor fight choreography and extremely dated special effects, MK isn't a good film, but it does make for a good laugh with friends! Full Review
It's a movie rife with mullets, gratuitous gymnastics, screamed lines, and terrible CGI. But it all just contributes to the charm. Full Review
...An arsenal of special-effects teams unleash some dazzling, fun eye-poppers, while the best of the fights have a visceral tension one can almost taste...
Rating: 3/5 -- The most intriguing is a glassy-eyed follower whose right hand shoots out a hissing reptile that can extend itself for miles. Exotic creatures like these make watching Mortal Kombat feel like being in a high-tech fun house. Full Review
New York Times
Rating: 2/5 -- One of its main attractions is, in effect, the way in which it works with the visual and interactive aspects of the videogame, trying to incorporate all this into a totally different product. [Full Review in Spanish] Full Review
Three warriors, Sonya Blade, Johnny Cage and Lui Kang, battle the servants of the evil sorcerer Shang Tsung to determine the fate of the world. Based on the popular video game.
This film adaptation of the wildly popular video game comes complete with dazzling special effects and plenty of martial arts action. The plot revolves around a tournament that pits evil against good. The sinister team, led by the vile sorcerer Shang Tsung, includes the ice-wielding Sub-Zero, the serpent-like Reptile, and the gigantic, four-armed, muscle-bound mutant Goro. The good guys are led by Lord Rayden, who uses electricity as a weapon. His pupils include martial arts expert Liu Kang, vain movie star and karate expert Johnny Cage, and Sonya Blade, a task-force commando who KNOWS how to kick some butt. Adding to the tension is the fact that whichever team wins 10 Kombat tournaments in a row will rule the Earth. And Shang Tsung's demonic team has won the last nine.
- Filmed on location in Thailand.
