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.

Here's the lowdown on the latest chapter in Mortal Kombat: deadly dull.

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.

Aided by a one dimensional set that isn't clever enough to be comic-like, this film has a Neanderthal mentality.

You know that when an acting joke like Christopher Lambert won't even return for the sequel, some fragile line has been crossed.

Please, folks, unless you feel like there is nothing left for you in this world and want to end it all, avoid this film at all costs.

A dopey, badly acted and headache-inducing bore.

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.
