Based on the popular video game of the same name "Mortal Kombat" tells the story of an ancient tournament where the best of the best of different Realms fight each other. The goal - ten wins to be able to legally invade the losing Realm. Outworld has so far collected nine wins against Earthrealm, so it's up to Lord Rayden and his fighters to stop Outworld from reaching the final victory...Written by
Shooting locations in Thailand were accessible only by boat, so cast, crew and equipment had to be transported on long canoe-like vessels. Gerrit V. Folsom constructed an outhouse in a secluded area near the set in order to alleviate the problem of repeated trips to and from the mainland. See more »

One of the best martial arts movies based on a video game adaption my personal favorite
Mortal Kombat (1995) is a childhood classic of mine and it is my all time favorite martial arts movie based on a video game adaptation. I love love love love this movie to death! It is a martial arts tournament people who fight for our world. I love everything about this movie. The story, characters, soundtracks, actors and so on, the action everything I love it. I love the theme song Techno-Syndrome (7inch mix) by The Immortals! I love it so much I love but I hate the sequel to this movie. It was directed from Paul W.S. Anderson who later directed Resident Evil films and he directed well. I love the soundtracks so much: Techno-Syndrome (7inch mix) by The Immortals Goodbye by by Gravity Kills, Juke-Joint Jezebel (Metropolis Mix), KMFDM, Halcyon + On + On - Orbital and George S. Clinton (ft. Buckethead) - Goro Vs. Art . This movie kick ass.
I love, love, love so much Bridgette Wilson-Sampras in this film she is so gorgeous and sexy. I love Linden Ashby and Robin Shou in this movie so much. I grew up with this film I saw it 20 years ago when I was 14 years old. I played Mortal Kombat 2 video game in the hospital with my friends when I was 13th years old. Trevor Goddard R.IP. is in this movie he almost in every good movie from the 90's, Baywatch, Deep Rising, Mortal Kombat and so on. Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa is always the bad guy in any action movie in the 90's like Showdown In Little Tokyo. We need movies like this back.
I love the fights beautiful choreographed the final battle between Liu Kang who searches for his brother killer against Shang Tsung is the best in the movie. Three unknowing martial artists are summoned to a mysterious island to compete in a tournament whose outcome will decide the fate of the world.
I love the characters: Lord Raiden , Liu Kang, Johnny Cage, Shang Tsung , Sonya Blade, Kitana , Kano, Scorpion and Sub-Zero love those character so much.
Johnny Cage is my favorite character of all time played by one and only Linden Ashby who was the right actor for this job. Johnny Cage is a Hollywood action movie star in the media clams he is a fake martial artist and he sign in to tournament Mortal Kombat to show his martial arts skills. Johnny fought Shang Tsung's goons and beat them. He fought Scorpion and Prince Goro on the end.
Sonya Blade is Bridgette Wilson-Sampras is my all time favorite character no one else could play her Sonya Blade is Bridgette Wilson not Sandra Hess. Sonya is a tough cop who chases Kano (Trevor Goddard) who killed her partner. She face his enemy in a tournament Mortal Kombat he was her toughest opponent.
Liu Kang is an ex monk who searchers for his brother killer a sorcerer Shang Tsung as he sign to compete in a tournament "Mortal Komabt" to avenge his brother's death. Liu Kang will always be Robin Shou he was no one else , he was excellent martial artist. Liu fought Shang Tsung (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa), Sub-Zero (François Petit) and Reptile (Keith Cooke) and of course Shang Tsung thugs. Robin Shou is the only actor who played the character so well. The fight choreographer was crazy.
Finally Lord Raiden is Christopher Lambert from Highlander only he could play such a great character God of Thunder.
I don't understand why Terminator 2: Judgment Day has the best score 8.5 while this movie that I love only has 5.8 it is not right this movie should get higher. I would take it anytime over Resident Evil or Tomb Raider movies anytime. 10/10 Mortal Kombat is my personal favorite martials arts science fiction film that is based on a video game. Sue me I love this film to death.
