MORTAL KOMBAT: ANNIHILATION (1997 USA)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.5|5.0 Stars ììì

Mortal Kombat: Annihilation seems much improved over the first Mortal Kombat film. The improvement partially revolves around a more imaginative script, better fight scenes, increased action scenes, and more storyline. Director John R. Leonetti seems to have a better grip on the story than the previous director Paul W.S. Anderson. Kudos to script improvement by writers Brent V. Friedman and Bryce Zabel.

Storyline

Shao Kahn (Brian Thompson), who is fusing Outworld and Earthrealm together, kills Johnny Cage (Chris Conrad). The rest of Earthrealm’s warriors find there are bigger fish to fry when they find Kitana’s (Talisa Soto) mother, Sindel (Musetta Vander), is back from the dead and is queen of Shao Khan. There is an Earthrealm mortal combat to fight that needs to result in an elimination of Shao Khan so that Earthrealm can be restored to its beauty and peace.
