To a true Mortal Kombat Fan, this movie is amazing as it includes a load of characters from the computer games such as Jade, Sindel, Mileena, Rain, Baraka, Sheeva, Motaro, Shao Kahn, Jax, Ermac and Cyrax who weren't in the first movie. There are loads of special moves incorporated in the movie, taken from the game, which makes it great. The storyline is abit simple, some scenes were repeated (Rains/Baraka death) and there is some historical inaccuracy, thus decreasing the popularity of the game. But if you like mortal kombat the game, film and TV shows you will find this sequel fits in perfectly with the collection.
P.S. Watch out for the 3rd Mortal Kombat Movie which is up and coming. It will follow the plot from Mortal Kombat Deadly Alliance. Most of the characters will be played by the original characters in the first movie. This movie has great expectations!

I must say that this film is not as good as the original, but that said it is extremly faithfull to the game, with no fewer than 24 characters from the game (two of which only get mentioned in conversation)including Shinnok from MK4. The fight scences are excellent, and the costumes exactly as they were in the game. Lynn Red Williams as Jax also delivers some superbly hilarious lines. Go Buy it

Excellent film for including some many characters from the actual games but this version is CUT. Why?
I just don't understand it. With so many good fight scenes why cut things like Sonia Blade finishing off Mileena?
Where is the uncut version? I've seen it on video but this dvd is not it.
Disappointing.

Utter Garbage.The First Entry was slightly Camp with a n almost non existent Storyline,where as Annihilation is Fully Camp with A storyline you'd need a Satnav to find.Even the Fight Scenes lack the Action of the first and don't get Me started on the Pantomime Dialogue.

Picks up exactly where the last one left with fights left, right and centre. Despite the story not been as smart as the previous movie, there is still plenty of action and a number of characters true to the best "beat 'em up" video game around.

I bought this because I thought it was the continuation of Mortal Combat but alas I was wrong, I wish they would label these things more clearly lol.

Mortal Kombat wasn't exactly a movie that was heavy on plot, but at least it had one. Too bad "Mortal Kombat: Annihilation" didn't manage to cobble together a bare-bones plot either -- it's big soggy mess of bad acting, wretched special effects, and a hilariously over-the-top Evil Army.

Earth is suddenly invaded by Shao Khan (Brian Thompson), who plans to merge Earth with the Outworld despite Liu Kang's triumph in Mortal Kombat. So Raiden (James Remar) and his friends set out to various parts of Earth to... really, I'm not sure WHAT they're trying to do. They're trying to defeat Shao Khan, but I'm not clear on the "how."

So Sonya Blade (Sandra Hess) goes off to find her partner Jax (Lynn "Red" Williams), who has somehow gotten back to the USA and acquired Arms of Steel in just two days. And after a clash with some familiar foes, Liu Kang (Robin Shou) loses his beloved Princess Kitana (Talisa Soto) and ends up on a new quest to become strong enough to save the Earth.

There's no real plot in "Mortal Kombat Annihilation" -- people just sort of wander around, fight, and hope that eventually they'll end up being able to defeat the Big Bad Guys. And the script is a total disaster -- the dialogue is simply atrocious ("Mother, you're alive!" "Too bad YOU... will DIE!") and the story is riddled with plot holes (how did Scorpion come back to life?).

Even worse, the entire thing is ridiculously goofy: bouncing ninjas, bad CGI monsters, giant vaguely-erotic balls that transport you to anywhere in the world, and Sonya fighting with a Kitana-lookalike who is NEVER EVEN IDENTIFIED. She just appears and mud-wrestles with Sonya! Oh, and the mother of all predictable plot twists smacks us in the face halfway through, and is more likely to elicit eyerolls than shocked gasps.

It's also kind of disorienting to have all but two actors replaced from the original movie -- most of the actors are pretty wooden, although Remar does a pretty good job as Raiden. Shou looks like he's confused about what he's doing most of the time; Hess's Sonya Blade is repulsively whiny and selfish, and usually gets upstaged by Lynn "Red" Williams and his metal muscles.

As for the megahammy Thompson ("On the seventh day, mankind will rest... IN PEACE!") and the constantly smirking Musetta Vander (and her Run Lola Run shriek), the less said about them the better. It just gives me flashbacks.

"Mortal Kombat: Annihilation" leaves you wanting annihilation - specifically, wanting this stupid movie to be annihilated. A reeking, low-rent disaster.
