Mortal Kombat


mortalkombatThree martial arts pros (Robin Shou, Linden Ashby, Bridgette Wilson) compete for world domination in a tournament that is set on an island. This flick belongs to one of the genres the 1990s never learned to master ā€“ movies based on video games. The production design looks alright, but thereā€™s nothing here but uninspired fights and contrived jokes. For better or worse, Christopher Lambertā€™s appearance as an ā€œelectricalā€ god elevates his acting from wooden into the plain ridiculous.

1995-U.S. 102 min. Color. Directed byĀ Paul W.S. Anderson. Cast: Christopher Lambert (Lord Rayden), Robin Shou (Liu Kang), Linden Ashby (Johnny Cage), Bridgette Wilson (Sonya Blade), Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Talisa Soto.Ā 

Trivia:Ā Followed byĀ Mortal Kombat: AnnihilationĀ (1997) and two TV series in 1995 (animated) and 1998; rebooted as Mortal KombatĀ (2021).
