Awesome action, great plot and good acting.

I remembered Mortal Kombat (movie) being very good as a kid but it is honestly just as good if not better now.
Jeffery C Hutcheson
It is the best movie ever to be adapted from a video game.

This movie still rocks. The Reptile effects are kind of dated, but everything else... hell yes! Next to Resident Evil (One, not Two), the best video game adaptation ever. No, it ain't a life affirming oscar worthy masterpiece, but its' a damn good time, with rockin' music, excellent fight scenes and gorgeous scenery. It stays pretty close to the game (minus the extreme gore). If you dug Enter The Dragon, you'll dig this.

I was fan of the first MK when came out, I remember playing it in my 386. when the movie was announced, I almost get an orgasm, and when came out (in VHS, DVD was years from being commercial), I see the movie one and another, and another time. in fact, making an interstate trip on bus, I convince the girl that works on the bus attending passengers of put the movie during the travel (yup, I was carry the tape with me).

one day, the tape broke up. yup, I see the movie more than 100 times and the tape got overused and broke. I cry a lot that day and I even have the broken tape with me. when the movie came out on DVD, I was ubber happy and I bought it, until I was robbed. they break on my house and take out my DVD player, with the disc inside. of course, I bought it again and even today when his FX are really lame compared with the actual, I still enjoy a lot of this movie.

about the movie, well, what can I say that has not be say already?. decent performance, decent FX, great combat scenes, awesome techno metal music and lots of fun for fans of MK. that's it, if you are not a MK fan, you will dislike this movie. but if you like even a little MK you will enjoy seeing all you favorite characters coming to life, even as some of them disappoint a little like Shang Tsung and Sonya.

some complains that I have and maybe this could be a spoiler, is that Kano almost does nothing and die really quickly, Raiden doesn't even fight, Sonya character was under used too and lets not talk about Kitana.

but the fights of Liu Kang where great. (spoiler again) against Zub Zero was awesome. the walking and back jumping in the wall is nothing new but looking Zub Zero doing it is just so cool.

When this movie came out, I was twelve years old and horribly afraid of being caught out as not old enough to see a PG-13 movie without an adult. In spite of that fear however, I saw this movie no less than seven times in the theatre alone. Now at almost 23 years old, I can say that this movie still makes me giddy with enjoyment. I love Liu Kang, Raiden and especially Reptile. Annihilation didn't come close to matching this movie. They couldn't keep the actors from the first film, Johnny Cage died in the first five seconds and the actor who had replaced Christopher Lambert as Raiden was terrible. But this movie, this movie captured my imagination over and over again and will likely continue to do so.

Video game films are either awful or just entertaining...nothing more. Mortal Kombat is the only film based on a video game that was very good. Kevin Droney, who wrote this film really did job writing it close to the game. Even the characters from the game were done well. The only problem is that some of the dialogue sucks and the fatalities were watered-down.

Paul W.S. Anderson showed his talent in directing for the first time in the USA. He is a good director, too bad his directing isn't as strong now as it was before he did Resident Evil. And I'm glad he didn't write this because he's one of the worst writers in Holloywood today.

Johnny Cage {Ashby} was the best character in this movie and he the best fight scene, the battle between him and Scorpion {Casamassa}. Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa has played many villians in his career, but Shang Tsung is his best performance. Liu Kang {Shou} Sonya Blade {Wilson} Kano {Goddard} and Rayden {Lambert} were all good characters too.

Nothing has beat Mortal Kombat as the best film based on a video game because films based on video games are never done right. A lot of them are just films using the game's title to make money.

Hopefully one day, a real director/writer will make one super cool...and not written by Paul W.S. Anderson or anything by Uwe Suck.

But for now, Mortal Kombat will still hold on to that title as the best film based on a video game.

This is a very cool movie. I like it a lot. Both the acting and the plot were stupendous, and I loved the fight scenes. Also, there were quite a few memorable quotes, many of my favorite characters were in it, and the way it was made, designed, and molded was just terrific. Here's how I would rank the fighters and the best parts:

Characters:

1. Scorpion-My favorite Mortal Kombat character of all time. Had cool powers, a cool outfit, and is the best ninja I've ever seen.

I loved his fighting skills and scary skull face as well. Yow!!!

2. Sub-Zero-Only Scorpion tops him. I loved his skills and blue and black uniform, and his freeze comes very close to Scorpion's spear and hellfire. And both ninjas look a lot like each other.

3. Reptile-He is a green ninja who could kick the toughest butt! I thought he was the most able and agile of all fighters except for the two above. I just wish he used his acid like in the game.

4. Kitana-Beautiful, acrobatic, and trained, she was the female in the movie I liked most. I loved her moves as well as her solid bravery and determination. Could've used some fans, but so what?

5. Sonya-The next best female. She was nearly as beautiful than Kitana, she was as defiant and tough as a girl should be, and she's a butt kicker. Cool guns, too. I also liked her angry tone.

6. Shang Tsung-A perfect villain. He was both vile and powerful, and he had no heart whatsoever. Also, the way he sucked souls out of bodies and ran the tournament was amazing as hell. He rocks.

7. Liu Kang-The Bruce Lee of Mortal Kombat and protagonist of the movie. I liked this guy A LOT. He was amazingly good in terms of fighting and lasting, had a funny accent, and he's just so cool.
