The winner of our So Bad It’s Good tournament, Zach, Chris, and Chris Ali watched 1995’s Mortal Kombat, probably the greatest video game to movie adaptation. When Earth is in danger of losing the tenth Mortal Kombat tournament in a row and allow the evil Shao Khan, emperor of Outworld, to enter and destroy the realm, a group of warriors including Liu Kang (Robin Shou), Johnny Cage (Linden Ashby) and Sonya Blade (Bridgette Wilson-Sampras) are gathered to fight Outworld’s champions, led by the duplicitous Shang Tsung (Cary Hiroyuki-Tagawa). The Earth warriors get some guidance from the God of Lightning, Raiden, played by a cheesily great Christopher Lambert. The guys try to figure out the rules of the tournament, the surprisingly tasteful use of the techno theme song, who the hell the other dozen or so Earth fighters are and much more. Mortal Kombat is available on Netflix and you can sync it up with the commentary below and get ready for some Kombat with the Everything Action crew.
I’m like the J. Jonah Jameson of Everything Action, writing and editing and constantly demanding pictures of Spider-Man.
