Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The most stimulating, satisfying aspect of this action fantasy is the theme music."
‑ Lisa Alspector, Chicago Reader
"Quite serious, charmless and critic-proof."
‑ Bob Heisler, Los Angeles Times
"I'll give it this - Mortal Kombat: Annihilation is hilarious. Sadly, not intentionally so."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"Game Over"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"A guilty pleasure more entertaining than the original"
‑ Jon Niccum, Lawrence Journal-World
"It's a toss up which aspect of this drivel is worst."
‑ Derek Adams, Time Out
"There's a kind of grand awfulness about it."
‑ Mary Brennan,
"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,
"This is an example of a sequel just as terrible as the first movie: same stuff, different day."
‑ John R. McEwen, Film Quips Online
"Pic consists largely of choppily edited fight scenes (usually involving somersaults and back flips) combined with various computer graphic effects."
‑ Daniel M. Kimmel, Variety
"Its dazzling special effects make its combatants flip and fly, spin and soar, all the while punching and kicking each other like jackhammers, only to leave viewers utterly unmoved."
‑ Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle
"A cheesy, abysmal sequel to an entertaining adaptation..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Film Threat
"Leonetti is a great cinematographer, but as director, well..."
‑ Luke Y. Thompson, New Times
"A little more work is required, for instance, on four-arm technology."
‑ Joe Baltake, Sacramento Bee
