Storyline

MMA fighter Cole Young (Lewis Tan), accustomed to taking a beating for money, is unaware of his heritage-or why Outworld's Emperor Shang Tsung (Chin Han) has sent his best warrior, Sub-Zero (Joe Taslim), an otherworldly Cryomancer, to hunt Cole down. Fearing for his family's safety, Cole goes in search of Sonya Blade (Jessica McNamee) at the direction of Jax (Mehcad Brooks), a Special Forces Major who bears the same strange dragon marking Cole was born with. Soon, he finds himself at the temple of Lord Raiden (Tadanobu Asano), an Elder God and the protector of Earthrealm, who grants sanctuary to those who bear the mark. Here, Cole trains with experienced warriors Liu Kang (Ludi Lin), Kung Lao (Max Huang) and rogue mercenary Kano (Josh Lawson), as he prepares to stand with Earth's greatest champions against the enemies of Outworld in a high stakes battle for the universe. But will Cole be pushed hard enough to unlock his arcana-the immense power from within his soul-in time to save not... Written by Warner Bros.

Goofs

Sub-Zero freezes and destroys Jax' arms. The fall off to his side. He then pushes Jax off to the side, and the subsequent overhead shot shows the two frozen and shattered arms next to Jax, as if they broke when he landed. As they would have still remained on the upper floors, there shouldn't be any shards on the lower floor, much less perfectly placed on either side of his body as shown in the film. See more »

Great movie

It's actually great, with the history of this.

The fight is totally awesome, it's very outstanding when see Sub-Zero use his ice.

But, I think, the story still need more, because it's feel too forced to be 2 hours.
