This sequel to Paul Anderson’s surprise 1995 hit turned out to be one of the worst video game movies made to date. And while the original was a guilty pleasure and a surprisingly watchable martial arts movie based on Bruce Lee’s Enter the Dragon, this sequel was so overblown and loaded with special effects and fights that it failed to entertain at any level.

Martial arts star Robin Shou and Talisa Soto reprised their roles from the original film, although neither them nor Christopher Lambert substitute James Remar (who played the thunder god Rayden) could liven up this dull spectacle, which featured a video game plot in which baddie Shao Kahn (Brian Thompson) was on a mission to invade Earth backed up by a troop of monsters and martial artists. But sadly this turned out to be the kind of video game movie that likely reminded viewers that playing the Mortal Kombat games was actually more fun than watching it.
