Though showing its age, "Kombat" is still as entertaining as it was in its heyday

I was living in San Diego (particularly in the suburban armpit of Del Mar) in 1995, and I remember waiting eagerly well over a year for MK's release. And it was definitely worth the wait; I saw it a total of 13 times, which stood as my all-time record for nearly four and a half years. When all was said and done, it had grossed a strong $70 million domestically, plus $100 million worldwide. I'm not a Mortal Kombat fanatic anymore, but in retrospect MK was one of the most entertaining movies of the 1990s. It was easily the first video game-turned-movie to contain a halfway decent plot, exciting special effects, good acting and spectacular martial arts action, the latter which was before all the present-day "Crouching Tiger" wire-work nonsense. The actors underwent a three-month crash course in martial arts training, and their hard work paid off beautifully. On screen, they looked like they were really performing those moves instead of just imitating them. Unlike previous video game movie washouts like "Double Dragon" and "Street Fighter," MK also had a comprehensible plot that remained faithful to the games, and in the end won a space in gamers' hearts. Along with the supporting cast of well-renowned martial artists, MK featured a nice cache of actors: Linden Ashby – whose screen personalities have all had a bit of a humorous smartass element to them – was perfect as Johnny Cage, likewise then-rising star Bridgette Wilson as Sonya Blade and Robin Shou as the film's centerpiece, Liu Kang. Christopher Lambert gave a witty performance as thunder god Raiden (constantly misspelled as "Rayden," much to the aggravation of many MK fans like myself), and nobody cared that he was a French actor playing a Japanese character. Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, who recently starred in Tim Burton's version of "Planet of the Apes," clearly had a ball playing the evil Shang Tsung, and it showed. (Heck, how many evil sorcerers get to wear cool black leather jackets?) Unfortunately, save for Tagawa and Wilson, MK unfortunately did not spell the worldwide exposure that many had predicted would come to the stars following the film's success, and the art of animatronics, used here to bring the four-armed Goro to life, is all but extinct in this day and age, but there was no denying that back in the day, the cast and filmmakers knew they had made an entertaining movie. While I hardly watch MK anymore, the bottom line is that it was undeniably a kick in the pants during its time, and for that reason alone it continues to maintain my highest vote to this day. 10/10

One of the best martial arts movies based on a video game adaption my personal favorite

Mortal Kombat (1995) is a childhood classic of mine and it is my all time favorite martial arts movie based on a video game adaptation. I love love love love this movie to death! It is a martial arts tournament people who fight for our world. I love everything about this movie. The story, characters, soundtracks, actors and so on, the action everything I love it. I love the theme song Techno-Syndrome (7inch mix) by The Immortals! I love it so much I love but I hate the sequel to this movie. It was directed from Paul W.S. Anderson who later directed Resident Evil films and he directed well. I love the soundtracks so much: Techno-Syndrome (7inch mix) by The Immortals Goodbye by by Gravity Kills, Juke-Joint Jezebel (Metropolis Mix), KMFDM, Halcyon + On + On - Orbital and George S. Clinton (ft. Buckethead) - Goro Vs. Art . This movie kick ass. I love, love, love so much Bridgette Wilson-Sampras in this film she is so gorgeous and sexy. I love Linden Ashby and Robin Shou in this movie so much. I grew up with this film I saw it 20 years ago when I was 14 years old. I played Mortal Kombat 2 video game in the hospital with my friends when I was 13th years old. Trevor Goddard R.IP. is in this movie he almost in every good movie from the 90's, Baywatch, Deep Rising, Mortal Kombat and so on. Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa is always the bad guy in any action movie in the 90's like Showdown In Little Tokyo. We need movies like this back. I love the fights beautiful choreographed the final battle between Liu Kang who searches for his brother killer against Shang Tsung is the best in the movie. Three unknowing martial artists are summoned to a mysterious island to compete in a tournament whose outcome will decide the fate of the world. I love the characters: Lord Raiden , Liu Kang, Johnny Cage, Shang Tsung , Sonya Blade, Kitana , Kano, Scorpion and Sub-Zero love those character so much. Johnny Cage is my favorite character of all time played by one and only Linden Ashby who was the right actor for this job. Johnny Cage is a Hollywood action movie star in the media clams he is a fake martial artist and he sign in to tournament Mortal Kombat to show his martial arts skills. Johnny fought Shang Tsung's goons and beat them. He fought Scorpion and Prince Goro on the end. Sonya Blade is Bridgette Wilson-Sampras is my all time favorite character no one else could play her Sonya Blade is Bridgette Wilson not Sandra Hess. Sonya is a tough cop who chases Kano (Trevor Goddard) who killed her partner. She face his enemy in a tournament Mortal Kombat he was her toughest opponent. Liu Kang is an ex monk who searchers for his brother killer a sorcerer Shang Tsung as he sign to compete in a tournament "Mortal Komabt" to avenge his brother's death. Liu Kang will always be Robin Shou he was no one else , he was excellent martial artist. Liu fought Shang Tsung (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa), Sub-Zero (François Petit) and Reptile (Keith Cooke) and of course Shang Tsung thugs. Robin Shou is the only actor who played the character so well. The fight choreographer was crazy. Finally Lord Raiden is Christopher Lambert from Highlander only he could play such a great character God of Thunder. I don't understand why Terminator 2: Judgment Day has the best score 8.5 while this movie that I love only has 5.8 it is not right this movie should get higher. I would take it anytime over Resident Evil or Tomb Raider movies anytime. 10/10 Mortal Kombat is my personal favorite martials arts science fiction film that is based on a video game. Sue me I love this film to death.

A nice adaption!

MK 1995 is a fine, just fine adaption. It is pretty often for movies based upon video games to end up crappy as a final product. Well, this one was more than OK. No need to tell anything except a few things... a few good things. The acting crew is great - Robin Shou (Liu Kang), Linden Ashby (Johny Cage) and Bridgette Willson (Sonya Blade) were great in their parts. Robin Shou is not the best actor around, but he proved to be great as Liu Kang and I find him, for now, to be the best who portrayed Kang in live action film. Linden Ashby was an excellent choice for Johny Cage. He was funny, cocky and sarcastic as a character, and I think that Ashby did a great job. Bridgette Willson was OK, but not all that great. Maybe because they give her so little to work with. And when it comes to that, our leading characters are not that much developed. They are just there to win the tournament, but their backgrounds are pretty solid, and that's about it. Too bad that they didn't give them more to their character. Christopher Lambert was fine as Rayden, mysterious and tall. But his acting was a bit wooden. Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa was excellent was Shang Tsung, his performance was inspiring and he made Tsung with such unmitigated charisma. So far, he is my favorite Shang Tsung. Talisa Soto (Kitana) was also good, alas just like Sonya, little developed and two dimensional. She was there to increase the plot for Liu Kang. Now, the one I really found most entertaining is none else than Trevor Goddard (Kano), his Kano was very fun! His Australian accent and charm were just through the roof! To mention the fact that most voice actors in video games based their performances on Goddard's. Thanks to him, this Kano is memorized and trademarked forever. Love this Kano! The martial artist that played Reptile (Keith Cooke), Sub Zero (Francois Petit) and Scorpion (Chris Casamassa) were amazing in what they do best - kicking some butt! They really gave a 200% effort and hard work in fight scenes. Fights are excellent, dynamic and well choreographed. The atmosphere in certain scenes is good, in a way, it gives us a decent impressions of "fighting locations." The locations and studio sets were good, CGI, was not that great. But, don't despair. One of the most beautiful things in this film is Goro. Performed by special effects master and student to Stan Winston - Tom Woodruff Jr. Who did an impressive job on Goro. You just can't deny his puppetry and animatronics. All that is pretty well mixed with voice acting of Kevin Michael Richardson who voiced Goro. For the end, Paul WS Anderson is not my favorite director, nor I don't find most of his films good. But, this one is very special and it was one of his early works in Hollywood, so he had to prove it. And he did it. He did a good job. Keep it in mind that this movie offers you only a tiny amount of blood. Whereas the game is extremely violent. This movie, reasonably is not. It's a decent fun! Watch it!
