Mortal Kombat is an ancient tournament where the Earth Realm warriors battle against the forces of Outworld. Liu Kang and a few chosen fighters fought and defeated the powerful sorcerer Shang Tsung, their victory would preserve the peace on Earth for one more generation. Taking place now where the first movie left off, the Earth realm warriors live a short period of peace when evil forces from another dimension come to invade and wreak havoc on Earth. They are guided by the forces of Outworld leader, Shao Kahn and his generals such as: Motaro, Rain, Ermac, Sheeva and Sindel. Now Liu Kang, Raiden, Jax, Sonya and Kitana must defeat Shao Kahn in six days before the Earth realm merges with the Outworld.Written by
For years, a third Mortal Kombat movie was being developed by New Line Cinema to atone for the poor reception to "Mortal Kombat: Annihilation." mink was hired to direct, and then Russell Mulcahy was hired to replace him. Sean Catherine Derek and Lawrence Kasanoff took turns writing the script, which would have had Johnny Cage resurrected to help the heroes against Quan Chi and a resurrected Shang Tsung. However, according to cast member Chris Casamassa, who would have reprised his role as Scorpion, production was halted when Hurricane Katrina destroyed most of the sets and the film ultimately never happened.

I love the original Mortal Kombat movies. They always bring me some strange pleasant kind of mood, and you just sit and enjoy them.
Yes, the budget is low, special effects are cheap and actors aren't well-known. So what? If you understand, that the movie is a video game adaptation, you'll see, that most of the game characters appear and they have game-like moves and tricks. You feel that it's made with the same spirit! And this is very unlike most adaptations, which look like different stories.
Seeing so many bad reviews and ratings makes me think that these people just didn't feel a bit childish cheer and enjoyment playing the game and watching the movie.
I was (and still) hoping to see sequels or remakes inspired by these great movies.
