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.

In the movie novelization, Sonya also has a fight scene with Jade that she wins before it officially begins after she fatally kicks Jade in the head after Jade returns her bow. Sonya was described in this scene as wearing "an Army-issue T-shirt" and "tightly-laced combat boots." This appears in the first draft of the script. See more »

An HBO "first look" program showed an alternative death for Scorpion. Instead of exploding after the shield toss, he falls off a platform and onto a spike in an emulation of the classic pit death scene from the video game series. See more »
Mortal Kombat (1995) may have lacked the gore and extremities that made the game so popular, but the visual effects are way cool (and fairly good for the time), the fight choreography is amazing, the sets are immersive, the soundtrack is badass (boasting names such as KMFDM and Sister Machine Gun), and the characters are truly likable (Ashby is a perfect choice for the egotistical and wisecracking Cage). The film suffers from cheesy acting and sometimes overly quippy one liners, but is still a total blast.
