Mortal Kombat: Annihilation Should Perform Harakiri

Bitmob Staff Writer Samir Torres writes:
The first Mortal Kombat film was far from a masterpiece, but it gave fans of the fighting series what they wanted: characters and settings from the games, an adrenaline-pumping soundtrack, and Talisa Soto. MK was a blockbuster hit, earning over $120 million dollars at the box office.

Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, on the other hand, was a critical and commercial failure. Director John R. Leonetti managed to take a successful action/martial arts franchise and turn it into a disaster of biblical proportions.

The story is too old to be commented.

Used to watch this and the original all the time as kids. We knew it was bad, but we didn't care!

There was so much wrong with this movie.

That CG battle was so pointless, they just fought and then transformed back to their human states and had to fight more.

I actually prefer the second over the first. Sure, the first was a better film from almost every angle, but the second was silly and full of characters and action.
