(mbc.net) Based on the now-legendary videogame bearing the same name, and considered one of the best videogame film-adaptations ever, Mortal Kombat is the world's most ancient martial arts tournament. For millennia worlds have competed in this tournament for dominion over other worlds. The goal is to win 10 successive championships for the loser to hand over the power to the tournament winner.

Standing in their way is Earthrealm's defender, the god of lightning and thunder, Lord Raiden (played by Christopher Lambert). Raiden has picked 3 warriors as humanity's last hope; Liu Kang (Robin Shou) a shaolin monk whose brother Chan was killed and his soul absorbed by Shang Tsung, Hollywood superstar Johnny Cage (Linden Ashby) that wants to prove to his critics that he didn't get a free-ride to the top, and that he is the real deal, and the third member of the pack; US Special Forces combat specialist, officer Sonya Blade (Bridgette Wilson), whose partner was killed by one of Shang Tsung's henchmen- crime lord Kano (Trevor Goddard). Yet with their mixed reasons for being there, none is more important than saving Earth from a future of pure evil…
