Trivia

Daniel Bernhardt (Siro) ironically was previously John Claude Vanne Dams stand in and stunt double. JCVD was the inspiration for the Johnny Cage character in the first MK game and was even asked to play him in the 1994 MK movie, but was already signed up to play Guile in the Street Fighter movie. Had JCVD played Cage in the movie, Brendhart would have been part of the original MK movie! See more »

Quotes

Announcer: In each of us there burns the soul of a warrior. In every generation, a few are chosen to prove it. Centuries ago, in a time of darkness and fury, that fate befell three strangers: a monk, Kung Lao... an exiled guard, Siro... and a thief, Taja, who have to defend our Earthrealm from the forces of Outworld by fighting for their lives by fighting for their honor and by fighting for their realm in a tournament called... Mortal Kombat.

Hit and miss
3 February 1999 | by See all my reviews

You know, when I first saw this show, I thought it was terrible. But then, for some reason, I kept watching it. I guess I'm just starved for kung-fu fighting, but don't really like watching Martial Law, too much.

Some of the fight scenes I saw were kind of bad, but some of the more recent episodes I saw showcased some excellent sequences. The acting and dialogue here will always be on the "not so great" level. But I guess it's only TV. As for story? Well, there doesn't seem to be much of a story. It's just 1) people are trying to kill Kung Lao 2)they have a fight 3) then we talk to Rayden at the end. And that's enough for me.
