Synopsis:

As a long time fan of first two Mortal Kombat games I was always a fan of this movie too and always wanted to do an edit of it one day. And here it is. This time it isn't as much about changing the plot, but about modyfing the tone & overall feel of the movie. Not to fix it (as it doesn't need that), but to alter it enough to offer a unique watching experience, quite different than original. To achieve that, the movie was completely re-scored with music from martial art films and fighting games with some other additions. Some additional footage taken from other movies was included as well as additional or alternate dialogue lines. Also, some blood VFX and grindhouse effects were added.


Intentions:

To see how one of my favourite movies would work with alternate soundtrack and more retro-vibe.


Change List:

- Added a few scenes from various unrelated movies in first act - Added a few scenes from "Mortal Kombat Annihilation" later in the movie - Added a couple of little bits from theatrical trailer and making of documentary - Added grindhouse effects throughout the movie - COMPLETE RE-SCORE. Instead of 90s techno and George S. Clinton's music (which served very well as the soundtrack here), now he have a compilation of themes from martial arts movies from 70s and 80s with some fighting games from the 90s with a little addition of Ennio Morricione and couple more songs - Several scenes have partially or completely rebuilded audio and many sfx were replaced with SFX from the games (namely MK 2, 10 and 11).? - some new dialogue lines were added and some old lines replaced, which was often done to comical effect.? - Added some CGI blood in several scenes - opening was cut and replaced with new intro - scene with random guys being thrown to the ground by Goro has been cut - short part of first Kano/Tsung scene was re-purpsed and re-edited - cliffhanger ending with Shao Kahn cut - this is standalone movie. - BE WARNED: you may expect some nudity and R-rated language not present in original movie
