If the movie Mortal Kombat were a character in a Mortal Kombat video game, its special maneuver would be to climb on its opponent's shoulders and defecate on his head.

In the realm of movies adapted from video games, "Mortal Kombat" sucks the least...

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

If the forces of darkness win ten mortal kombats in a row, the world will be subjugated to a tyrrany of evil and bad spelling

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

Hopeless? Oh yes. It's hopeless alright. Mondo hopeless.

Far too predictable to recommend to anyone not predisposed to this type of propulsive but vacant entertainment.

Just looks and plays a lot like Johnny Mnemonic, Double Dragon and other video-game-inspired, mayhem-filled messes.

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

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.

January 1, 2000
The movie that most nearly approximates a video game: lots of action, no plot, eye-catching computer effects and a dollop of violence.

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

The impressiveness of skill is lost in the technical production.
Full Review | Original Score: 61/100
