Trivia

All of Goro's scenes were filmed in a Los Angeles studio. The animatronic that was used to portray him had to be operated by 13 to 16 people, and it frequently broke down, causing significant delays. It could not be brought on set in Thailand out of fear that it would cause even more trouble. For the fight scenes involving Goro, the crew had created a soundstage with ponds and water, but these were quickly removed to prevent Goro from falling in accidentally and short-circuiting.

Goofs

(at around 54 mins) Sub-Zero flips down from the platform followed by Liu Kang. On the floor, Liu kicks Sub-Zero. Sub-Zero falls to the ground and after he falls he rolls once more. The kick wasn't that hard and it's clearly visible that the extra roll was forced. See more »

"Mortal Kombat" in my opinion is just an awesome movie. I think because I was such a fan of the video games, the days when Sega was the "thang". LOL, way before Playstation there was Sega! But, I really just loved the characters and this story just always appealed to me. I think because also my friends and I enjoyed acting the movie and video game out. No, we didn't kill each other, we just loved the characters.

Yes, despite this being a typical video game movie, I still think it was cool to watch, still to this day I don't mind watching. It has an awesome soundtrack, excellent moves, and a great look and feel to the movie itself. Just let go and have fun with it, if you enjoyed the video games, I think you should enjoy "Mortal Kombat". It's just cool to watch and keeps you on the edge of your seat in excitement!

7/10
