A Mortal Combat remake.. without the cool characters..
"... unknowing martial artists are summoned to a mysterious island to compete in a tournament whose outcome will decide the fate of the world."
That was the plot for Mortal Combat. It worked there because you had some fun characters.
Doesn't work as well here when you don't have Raiden or Sub-Zero. Which is too bad, it would have certainly made this film more bearable. Perhaps it was because I watched with both subs and dubs, but I found pretty much everything retarded... except for the fight scenes.
If you like Kung-Fu movies, it's worth a watch for the fight scenes, the movie is fun... just a bad Mortal Combat remake...
