Mortal Kombat: Annihilation

If you like to watch movies where a bunch of people try to kick each other's you-know-whats using an equal amount of karate techniques and high-tech special effects, this movie's for you. If you're like me, and have an attention span suited to something with a bit more depth, skip it.

Naturally, there are the Good Guys and the Bad Guys, and they have lots of karate battles. At least it's not completely male-dominated and sexist - there are several female karate-choppers (one of them looks like a clone of TV's Xena: The Warrior Princess). Speaking of clones, there's also a Jackie Chan lookalike, and a Superman wannabe with huge steel plates that give his arms super strength. Please! Oh, have I mentioned that there's this immortal "thundergod" named Rayden with long white hair that makes him look just like the old guy in Back to the Future? Or an evil witch with long, platinum streaked hair like Morticia of The Adams Family movies and show? Do you see a pattern here? It's like they copied every famous TV or movie character they could think of!

Apparently I was one of the few people who disliked this movie - as I left the theatre I heard many people saying "Cool!", "Awesome", or "Better than the first one!" If you are one of those people, I'll be expecting your hate mail.
