Although this film can't really compare with the origional Mortal Kombat, it's still a fun film.
The one problem I have with this one is that too many of the scenes could only be understood by a fan of the games. I am one but I got a little tired of answering such questions as these (with answers to help the fan impared):
"What are these robots here for?" Cyrax, Smoke and Sektor are robots out to get subzero for betraying his clan. To fit them in this film they were reprogrammed to go after our heroes.
"Who was that chick in the pink who looked like Kitana and attacked Sonya?" That was Mileena, Kitana's Evil Twin.
"What about that thing with the blades and the severe need for an orthodontist?" Baraka. A freaky weirdo from the games who is never really explained
"And the Shao-Kahn's four cronies?" The red guy is Ermac, a somewhat enigmatic fighter for Mortal Kombat 3
The purple one is Rain. A weather controlling ninja who is killed before doing anything cool in this film.
The 4-armed freak is Sheeva. Sindel's shokan guardian thought up by taking a hindu god, giving it a sex change and mis-spelling its name
The centaur is Motaro, a sub-boss from the games who's species hate's Sheeva's species.
"Who is Nightwolf?" An indian who really kicks butt in the games
"What is this animality crapola?" A type of fatality from the game in which you turn into an animal and kick butt
My one real problem with this film is that fact that Christopher Lambert and Bridgette Wilson seem to have been replaced. Why?
