Trivia

J.J. Perry revealed that he had filmed his fight as Scorpion with Keith Cooke as Sub-Zero on an injured ankle that he had sustained after stepping on a power cable during the shooting of his fight scene with Lynn Williams as Jax, due to the helmet he wore as part of his Cyrax costume having robbed him of his peripheral vision. During Cyrax's fight with Jax, Perry added that he and Williams "really beat the piss out of each other." See more »

Goofs

After Rayden has his new identity, he is attacked by the ninjas. During this fight scene you can clearly see Rayden's stunt double instead of the main actor fighting. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Rayden: [narrating] Mortal Kombat is not about death, but rather the preservation of life. Liu Kang and a few chosen fighters from the Earth realm defeated Outworld sorcerer Shang Tsung. According to the rules of Mortal Kombat, their victory preserved the safety of the Earth for one more generation. Our chosen ones were returned to Liu Kang's home on Earth, only to enjoy a brief period of peace... for someone from Outworld has a different point of view.

Great Action and Music
15 November 2019 | by timothygartinSee all my reviews

This is an exciting movie to watch. The action never stops from the beginning to the end. The music is amazing as well. It highlights the characters and action sequences perfectly.

Sure, there are some problems with the story and direction. It's totally fun to watch, though.

I recommend this one.
