Consensus: With its shallow characters, low budget special effects, and mindless fight scenes, Mortal Kombat - Annihilation offers minimal plot development and manages to underachieve the low bar set by its predecessor.

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.

The video game is much more fun, of course.

It is inscrutable mostly and in those rare moments that it can be decoded, it's so awful as to prove unworthy of the effort.

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.

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.

It's hard to believe that was produced by big studios in Hollywood because is the worst film ever made. [Full review in Spanish]

It wastes no time getting to the punching, kicking, stomping and zapping that passes for a cinematic event.

The most stimulating, satisfying aspect of this action fantasy is the theme music.

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.

Clearly a catastrophe as a sequel and overall film. Mortal Kombat: Annihilation is forgettable, inconsistent and filled with mediocrity that's insulting to… More

Awesome fight scenes with MK characters. Acting and effects were probably terrible but when I was 11, this owned everything.

I feel like I stepped into a really bad Power Rangers episode made by 2 6 year olds. This movie has little to no redeeming qualities, and one a bad scale, is… More
