Though the acting is mediocre, the script is okay. However, forget the dialogue and pay more attention to some of the mind-boggling action sequences and excellent special effects. I can't really explain how this is better than the other films based on video games. Perhaps, the reason is that it's more like the game than the other ones were. Of course, lots of martial-arts action and special effects never hurt. There are some enjoyable moments for older kids and adults. Mainly from the character Johnny Cage, a vain movie star, who wants to prove that his moves aren't fake. He gets some of the best lines. Mortal Kombat isn't Enter The Dragon, but there are plenty of moves and action that would have made Bruce Lee proud.
