Just when you thought the game was over, along comes the second movie inspired by the popular video game Mortal Kombat. While Liu Kang (Robin Shou) led his warriors Princess Kitana (Talisa Soto), Sonya Blade (Sandra Hess), Rayden (James Remar), and Johnny Cage (Chris Conrad) to victory, and the safety of the world seemed certain, no one counted on the treachery of Shao-Kahn (Brian Thompson), the evil Emperor of the Outerworld, who has a new plan to overtake the Earth. Shao-Kahn has discovered a portal between Earth and Outerworld, and if it stays open for seven days, the two worlds will merge,… More

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Never -- at least not since the first Mortal Kombat -- has tedium been so loud, so full of backward flips and flying fists to the kissers of centaurs from another realm."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"The video game is much more fun, of course."
‑ Melanie McFarland, Seattle Times
"Mortal Kombat Annihilation features evil ninja monsters popping out of nowhere. If at first these villains appear absolutely unbeatable, just wait a minute and you'll see them cower before our determined, team-oriented good guys."
‑ Mark Bazer, Boston Phoenix
"Dark, brash, wholly repetitive and fast-cut to the banging sounds of a techno soundtrack, Mortal Kombat II: Annihilation should appeal to die-hard video games players. But to very few others."
‑ , Total Film
"A cheesy, abysmal sequel to an entertaining adaptation..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Film Threat
"The first sequel to 1995's highly successful Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat Annihilation adds little to the development of the saga except for a truckload of martial arts sequences and a whole mess of bigger and louder special effects."
‑ John Petrakis, Chicago Tribune
"Fragmented and monotonous, without a semblance of the gymnastic cleverness that at least made the first Mortal Kombat film into watchable trash, Mortal Kombat Annihilation is as debased as movies come."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"The script, by five writers, is a melange of role-playing games, Biblical references, mythology and martial-arts and other movie cliches; it's predictable when it's not impenetrable."
‑ John Wooley, Tulsa World
"I'll give it this - Mortal Kombat: Annihilation is hilarious. Sadly, not intentionally so."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"Game Over"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"It wastes no time getting to the punching, kicking, stomping and zapping that passes for a cinematic event."
‑ Jami Bernard, New York Daily News
"The most stimulating, satisfying aspect of this action fantasy is the theme music."
‑ Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader
"There's only slightly more plot than appeared in the original computer game, and the result is undemanding fun."
‑ John Ferguson, Radio Times
"This tedious hodgepodge of martial-arts mayhem, bogus mysticism and computer-generated special effects doesn't even pretend to have a plot."
‑ Maitland McDonagh, TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Astonishing that they could do worse than Part 1. Seriously."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
