Likely to satisfy only the core audience already hooked on video and arcade games, and even that's not a sure thing.

Offers a visceral jolt of pleasure for those who formerly believed the martial arts movie genre belongs exclusively to Hong Kong's John Woo.
| Original Score: 3/5

The impressiveness of skill is lost in the technical production.

It should be worth noting that you can play the game much cheaper than seeing the movie, and the end result is much the same.

It's silly, of course, but more importantly, it's a hell of a lot of fun, with plenty of above-average gags.

The characters are cardboard, the humor is lame and the heroes are all so unlikable most of the way that the audience won't be able - or want - to identify with them.

What it's missing, ironically, is the edge that's made Mortal Kombat the video game such a powerful icon in American pop culture.

The movie has everything a teenage boy could want... Everything, that is, but an interesting plot, decent dialogue and compelling acting.
