Games

  • Mortal Kombat (1995)
    • This first live-action film attempts to retell the original video game, taking inspriation from what worked while crafting something cheesy and hilarious (even if that was unintentional).
  • Mortal Kombat: Annihilation
    • A direct sequel to the live-action effort, this low-budget monstrosity ruined anything good about the original for a cheap cash-in, and bottomed out the movie franchise in the process.
  • Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge
    • And animated retelling of the original game in the series, this movie does borrow elements from the later video game reboots, putting the focus squarly on Scorpion, his class, and his quest for revenge.
  • Mortal Kombat Legends: Battle of the Realms
    • A direct sequel to that animated effort, this film broadens the scope while adapting the second and third games to... okay effect.
  • Mortal Kombat (2021)
    • Another attempt at a live action film, this version at least gets one thing right: it lets the film be as brutal, and gory, as it needs to be.
