I'll give it this - Mortal Kombat: Annihilation is hilarious. Sadly, not intentionally so.

The most stimulating, satisfying aspect of this action fantasy is the theme music.

This tedious hodgepodge of martial-arts mayhem, bogus mysticism and computer-generated special effects doesn't even pretend to have a plot.

Leonetti is a great cinematographer, but as director, well...

Pic consists largely of choppily edited fight scenes (usually involving somersaults and back flips) combined with various computer graphic effects.

This is an example of a sequel just as terrible as the first movie: same stuff, different day.

A little more work is required, for instance, on four-arm technology.

Its dazzling special effects make its combatants flip and fly, spin and soar, all the while punching and kicking each other like jackhammers, only to leave viewers utterly unmoved.

It's just an excuse for a series of tedious, repetitious fight scenes that have been staged with no hint whatsoever of originality.

There's a kind of grand awfulness about it.

As far as the plot, the repetitive bombardment of similar scenarios makes the film seem very long and painfully drawn out.
