Based on the popular video game of the same name "Mortal Kombat" tells the story of an ancient tournament where the best of the best of different Realms fight each other. The goal - ten wins to be able to legally invade the losing Realm.

(at around 58 mins) When Goro defeats Art, Shang Tsung declares it a "flawless victory" which is from the video game the movie is based on. However even though losing quite badly Art did get in a few punches to Goro's torso then a flying kick to his chest which knocked him back. Clearly not a "flawless victory," which is when the loser doesn't get a single hit in. See more »
For an adaptation of a video game this is not a bad movie. Well, actually it is a very bad movie but there is so much fun that you don't have to care. The story that doesn't make any sense and the stupid one-liners become funny in a movie like this. Even the terrible performances are perfect for a movie like this, especially Christopher Lambert is brilliantly bad as Lord Rayden.
I have to admit that the action looks pretty good and that is probably one of the reasons it works so well. The video game is also nothing but action and some background noises of course. That is another good thing. The music, especially the Mortal Kombat theme, sounds pretty cool as well. Without thinking this is mindless fun.
