Mortal Kombat: Rebirth (2010) (V)
Jackson Briggs: [looks at a folder] Six foot one; born with a rare disorder called harlequin ichthyosis. The skin produces too many cells, causing massive diamond-shaped cells that can retain water. Condition: the eyelids are formed inside out. Life expectancy's two weeks - this guy's thirty. He likes to rip the heads off his victim's body; he stores the heads in his refrigerator, and when he's hungry he eats them. No fatalities or double flawless. Codename: Reptile.

Jackson Briggs: [looks at a second folder] Next up: Doctor Alan Zane, a plastic surgeon. His first victim likely accidental - the next two dozen were not. Zane couldn't take being a failed doctor, so he went psychotic and turned the knife on himself. He pierced his face, sharpened his teeth into fangs, and he even surgically attached a pair of ten-inch blades to his forearms. Codename: Baraka.

Jackson Briggs: The last contact we had with Baraka was through Johnny Cage. Yeah, that's right, the old action hero. After his movie career died, he needed work. We got him working for us undercover...
[cut to Cage being attacked by Baraka]

Jackson Briggs: [tosses a third folder across] We have reason to believe this man, Shang Tsung, may be behind each killer. The night before Johnny Cage was murdered, he told us about a tournament this Shang Tsung is planning, some underground death match between the world's top fighters. Serial killers, assassins... which brings me to you.
[looks across the table at the silent figure seated]
Jackson Briggs: Hanzo Hasachi. Before your incarceration, you were the top assassin of the Shirai Ryu, the most lethal ninja clan.

Jackson Briggs: [to Hasachi] We want to put you back on the streets. If this tournament exists, Shang Tsung will find you. And if this tournament exists, it's our one shot to take out Baraka, Reptile and the other maniacs who've turned this city into a killing field. We want you to join the tournament, and we want you to win it. We want you to do what you do best: kill them all.

Hanzo Hasashi: You know a great deal about me. Then you must know that I surrendered my freedom voluntarily. Now what you don't seem to know is that I can have I freedom back, whenever I choose.
[handcuffs drop off him]
Hanzo Hasashi: So tell me, Detective Briggs, what could you possibly offer me in exchange for my help?
[a female officer appears]
Jackson Briggs: Sonya Blade. Perfect timing.

[last lines]
Sonya Blade: Leave no survivors, understand? None!
Jackson Briggs: Hasashi, are you listening? Find Shang Tsung and finish him!
Hanzo Hasashi: Hanzo Hasashi is dead. My name is Scorpion.
