Mortal Kombat may not be high art, but it's a fun Martial Arts Fantasy flick that is leagues above the likes of Street Fighter and Super Mario Bros. The movie ultimately succeeds thanks to its entertaining fight scenes, well picked cast, stylish visuals (minus some dated CGI here and there), and overall faithful treatment of the video game it's based on. In my opinion, it's the best movie adapted from a video game, and while that may not be saying a lot considering the poor track record of the sub-genre, I still enjoy this movie a lot. Great 90s soundtrack too.

One word: Disappointing. After seeing commercials with people rampaging in the streets with axes and stomping on cars screaming "Nothing can prepare you!" I expected more than this. I expected something like the movie Ninja Assassin. Hello? Where are the fatalities? Where is the choreography? Why does the fighting suck? It was a shameful day indeed when I saw this movie back in the 90's. This series was rebooted on You Tube and the first season is pretty outstanding.

Not quite as dreadful as it sounds and at least it's self aware and tongue-in-cheek. Nowhere near as bad as the Streetfighter movie, but that ain't saying much...

Mindless action, techo music and yet another example of a video game movie that just doesn't work. It's fun in a cheesy action kind of way, but considering the source material, it's about as much as could be hoped for.

Mortal Kombat was an Oscar award winner compared to Street Fighter: The Movie.At least it stayed closer to the video game & how can you not like the soundtrack?! I had the theme song stuck in my head for days & after watching it, I just wanted to go out & play the game

Best video game movie

The best video game movie ever made. Well one based on a game completely because King of Kong is certainly better. Anyways getting such a title does not mean much since almost all other video game movies are terrible. In fact the only one I might give a positive review is street fighter the movie but you would have to check that review to see why. Anyways the reason it is good is because it actually is closer to the game's story than many others. Also do to good casting and fairly good performances. Not to mention its degree of action is done just right. A lot of other video game movie action scenes are done too grimy like to enjoy and others are just bad. In this they are all okay some worst but a few better. Plus the music is fine it looks okay, and the story is okay and is not pretenti...
