Trivia

Daniel Bernhardt (Siro) ironically was previously Jean-Claude Van Damme 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 »

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...

I like it
15 February 1999 | by (canada) – See all my reviews

I am 14 years old and like martial arts a lot. I like this show because I think that it has some of the best fighting scenes you can see in any movie or show. Also I like the way they changed the storylines. I would love it if they continued to show more episodes, because here in canada we have only seen 9 episodes of it and they have repeated it from the first episode all over again. One more thing is that I like the outfits the women wears and Taja is enough for me to watch the show. For the guys though all I know is they are very good in martial arts except maybe for Kung lao because he uses a double but Siro and the stunts they're all good. But as for this show goes keep up the good work I think this show has potential to be one of the most watched show on T.V. give this show a chance and for the creators keep up the good work! For those people who hate it come on it's good give it a chance
