Mortal Kombat: (George S. Clinton) Darwin enthusiasts have nightmares about the destruction of the Earth, and the possibility that after the planet's total expulsion from the solar system in billions of pieces, a kopy of the 1995 film adaptation of the Mortal Kombat arcade and video game will be all that intelligent beings from other worlds will find floating about in space... the sole surviving remnant of humanity's grand achievements. There really was no reason for $20 million to be spent on a live action production of Mortal Kombat if not for the ability of novice director Paul Anderson and writer Kevin Droney to take advantage of the already-enflamed hormones of 13-year-old boys entranced enough by this bloody nonsense to fork over even more kash for a less interactive version. To their kredit, the filmmakers decided not to stray too far from the work of the game's kreators, artist John Tobias and software designer Ed Boon, and in doing so, made the project successful enough to finance a sequel a few years later. With any luck, the aliens will find that piece of art floating about in space, too. Describing the plot of the film is likely a waste of time for those not familiar with the game. It probably suffices to say that there exists a place in a near dimension kalled Outworld where the best fighters from this world have to go. There, these superdorks ward off the evil minions of the evil sorcerer Shang Tsung so that he kan't steal rule of the Earth away from the benevolent Highlander-transplant Lord Rayden. Kommon sense would kall for the world to simply unleash George W. Bush's military genius on Shang Tsung and his kronies, but then we'd lose all the fantastic scenes of Earth's trio of representatives (one of which being 1990 'Miss Teen USA' Bridgette Wilson) fighting monsters like Shokan Prince Goro, whose four arms would make Ray Harryhausen (and any hot dog eating kompetitor) proud.
