The movie that most nearly approximates a video game: lots of action, no plot, eye-catching computer effects and a dollop of violence.
Hardly award-worthy entertainment, and pretty visually dated, but probably one of the better video game movies ever made comparatively.
Soon, Hanzo arrives at the outskirts of the village and finds the corpse of half a dozen dead villagers. He runs to his home, only to arrive too late: his wife and son have been killed. Dropping to his knees in emotional agony and despair, Hanzo is caught off-guard as Bi-Han impales him. As he slowly freezes Hanzo, Bi-Han mocks Hanzo’s clan as being inferior, and his family to rot in the afterlife alongside him. Hanzo is completely submerged in ice and is killed.
Mortal Kombat (commonly abbreviated MK) is a popular series of fighting games created by Midway, which in turn spawned a number of related media. It is especially noted for its digitized sprites (which differentiated it from its contemporaries'' hand-drawn sprites), and its mix of bloody and brutal action its graphic Fatality killing moves contributed to the founding of the ESRB.
Where others have sunk in the mire of imitation, director Paul Anderson and writer Kevin Droney effect a viable balance between exquisitely choreographed action and ironic visual and verbal counterpoint.
It is known that his father, a former member of the Shirai Ryu , forbade his son from joining the clan, as he did not wish for his son to live the life of an assassin. However, Hanzo joined in spite of his father''s wishes in order to provide his wife and son with a comfortable life.
British director Anderson does a fair job with what he was given: four good-looking leads, some very impressive sfx, Babylonian sets, a bone-crunching soundtrack, and a battery of well-choreographed fights.

Now Scorpion is a hell-spawned spectre, inexorably seeking vengeance against those responsible for the destruction of his clan and the death of his own family. Despite his malevolent appearance, he is not inherently evil. He joins the forces of evil when promised a means of resurrecting his clan on Earth , or the chance to inflict his wrath against those who butchered them. Scorpion has also (indirectly) assisted the game''s protagonists to fulfill these motives.
Scorpion unmasked is known as Inferno Scorpion. This design was first featured in MK: Shaolin Monks reappears in the Challenge Tower , fighting Kano in the Netherrealm. His costumes incorporate his namesake more and more with each game, particularly in one of his latest redesigns. The hilts of his swords now resemble the stingers of scorpions, while his shoulder pads and masks are also molded after scorpions.
