What is this?,
This review is from: Mortal Kombat: Annihilation (DVD)
I enjoyed the first Mortal Kombat movie. It was corny, yes, but the martial arts action was entertaining and seeing Christopher Lambert cast as Rayden definitely was a big bonus. This movie, however, turned out to be totally ridiculous.
First of all, both Sonya and Rayden are played by different actors, both of whom can't act worth a darn. In fact, none of the acting is that good, and the plot is as paper thin and unconvincing as the acting is. There are a number of character appearances--too many, in fact. Many characters play a small, only momentary role in the movie that makes you wonder if the whole purpose of the movie was just to show all the characters in sequence and then end it. Rain, Sheeva, Mileena, many of the classic characters scarcely exist.
So, to sum up, if you like bad acting, a thin plot, horrible special effects, and even fighting that is really, really lame, then this movie might be for you. Otherwise, avoid it.
