John Woerts’s review:
Compared to the other big movie about fighting games of it's time, Mortal Kombat is a vastly superior movie - from a technical point of view. The fights are actually well-choreographed and the special effects hold up surprisingly well. But the comparison to Street Fighter: The Movie also needs to acknowledge that Mortal Kombat does not have the charm of Street Fighter. The last third of the movie is not as good as the beginning and middle, and at times the movie ends up being a little boring. Still a fun movie and one of the better martial arts flicks of its time.
