It's like an episode of Power Rangers but without the budget.
Another weird ass TANG.
Damn. I saw this movie once in theaters and I didn't remember it being this terrible. One thing I wouldn't mind seeing is a side-by-side comparison of the cgi in this one and the live-action tv series, Mortal Kombat Conquest, just to see which is worse.
I like this movie because it's so bad. Haha.
I'm sure the effects looked pretty damn cool at the time. I remember not going to see it in theaters because I had heard such bad things about it.
This movie looks horrible. 'Nuff said.
One of the reasons I love TANG so much is that Vinny gets free creative license with his editing, best seen in the Silent Hill TANG.
What's with all the "I saw it when I was 12/13, so I don't remember it being that bad." I don't remember being mentally handicapped at that age.
WOw, One of the best TANG's ever.
Lol that was some pretty random editing at the end.
"I'm sure the effects looked pretty damn cool at the time. I remember not going to see it in theaters because I had heard such bad things about it. "
Totally watched this turd in the theater upon the insistance of a good friend.. almost as bad as House of the Dead (another friend influienced decision). Terrible.
Loved the montage!

The effects were God-awful even in their time. Even all of MK1's effects were better. Hell, the Star Wars movies had better effects, if you ask me. "
"Unsuitable for fans either" is not correct. I think "not suitable for fans either" is what you mean Ryan.
I saw this in theaters as a kid! I remember it being disappointing, but I think I still said I liked it. Pffft kids are weird.
I think Giantbomb's green-screen CG effects look better than this.
Yikes just yikes, Ryan at GiantBomb taking this dvd shaped bullet makes me ever so happy I didn't see this film. Hopefully all the films for TANG aren't too much for any one person to watch.
No backflip montage?
Man, i remember this in theaters
I love the funny endings you guys throw in on TANG videos. Even if the movie is god awful, we can always count on Vinny's clever editing skills.
Seen better SFX on YouTube
Wow that CGI is terrible.
I actually saw this in the theaters back in the day. And I ENJOYED IT!!! Then again, I was 10.
Lmfao. Another great TANG.
wow that looked pretty bad
YAY TANG.... PS the Giantbomb app store ads on the side of the site are kick ass
Great episode of TANG, Ryan.The ending was fantastic, that music needs to be in more things!
Hahaha, great review Ryan, loved the ending.
That was a terrific episode, loved the editing.
looks like they have their graphics for their next i love mondays
Glad that James Remar's career recovered from this disaster. He's pretty good in Dexter.
I bet the special effects were considered good back in the day
I get it! Shao Khan is Freiza!
I probably watched this movie 20 times or so when I was 10 or 11 which meant I must of thought it was the best thing since sliced bread. Not sure what I was thinking though, tried watching it a few months ago and threw up a little. Still holds some nostalgia for me though. Btw, I always thought Sub Zero looked like David Schwimmer (the guy who played ross on friends).
I'm ashamed to say I paid good money to see this in a theater. Those of us scarred by those memories of those lonesome, dark theaters should really band together and sue. Oh God, the horror, the horror...
Makes me glad I never rewatched the movie. Great TANG!
ReTarDedFisHy doesn't remember the CGI effects being that bad :O
Completely spot on review. The first film was stupid fun, the second was just stupid. The special effects were awful, the costumes cheesy, the sets lame, and the fighting boring. The "animality" sequence at the end is easily the worst CG in a theatrical film. Television shows had better special effects back then than this movie.
I forgot how terrible the CG sequences were. I did see this when I was a kid though. Go cheap cash cows.
ok, all together now 1..2..3 MORTAL KOMBAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Why does Ryan always roll his sleeves up?
at least they had cgi
Needs more TANG.
i hope you do the dungeon siege movie next.
I watched this movie in the theaters having enjoyed the first movie, and being a big fan of the games.I was so incredibly disappointed.
