A fun, visually appealing film with effective performances and well choreographed fights. [Full review in Spanish]
May 16, 2011
Hardly award-worthy entertainment, and pretty visually dated, but probably one of the better video game movies ever made comparatively.

We'll concede that four-armed Prince Goro is a hoot, Christopher Lambert looks fabulous in a flowing white wig, and Talisa Soto, who plays some kind of princess, can lord it over us anytime.

Where others have sunk in the mire of imitation, director Paul Anderson and writer Kevin Droney effect a viable balance between exquisitely choreographed action and ironic visual and verbal counterpoint.

cheesy but still, kick ass

British director Anderson does a fair job with what he was given: four good-looking leads, some very impressive sfx, Babylonian sets, a bone-crunching soundtrack, and a battery of well-choreographed fights.

The most intriguing is a glassy-eyed follower whose right hand shoots out a hissing reptile that can extend itself for miles. Exotic creatures like these make watching Mortal Kombat feel like being in a high-tech fun house.

Offers a visceral jolt of pleasure for those who formerly believed the martial arts movie genre belongs exclusively to Hong Kong's John Woo.

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

Cheesy and very violent adaptation of '90s video game.

...a one-note gimmick that comes with everything but a joystick for the viewer to control the robotic characters.

In the realm of movies adapted from video games, "Mortal Kombat" sucks the least...
April 7, 2010
All the head-crushing and thigh-flexing doesn't compensate for the monotony of a story that simply traipses from one combat (sorry, kombat) to the next.

Like watching a lot of sweaty fist fights while trapped in the world's loudest night club.
| Original Score: 2.5/5

This one's a howler that's so bad it's almost good -- almost.
