Complete Storyline and information about Mortal Kombat.
Dark forces from Outworld threaten humanity with war. Tournaments are held regularly, in which the best fighters compete against each other. If Outworld can win ten Mortal Kombats in a row, the evil Shang Tsung (Chin Han) will bring Earth under his control.
After nine battles won, the fate of the planet hangs in the balance. The old god Lord Raiden (Tadanobu Asano) now has the difficult task of finding those who can defend the Earth in a final tournament. Is the MMA fighter Cole Young (Lewis Tan) the right one? Or monk Liu Kang (Ludi Lin)? Could military Major Jackson ‘Jax’ Briggs (Mehcad Brooks) and his ex-soldier Sonya Blade (Jessica McNamee) make a difference?
To make matters worse, not everyone involved values fairness. Shang Tsung dispatches his deadliest warrior, the ice-cold Sub-Zero (Joe Taslim), to preemptively hunt down Earth’s all-too-promising candidates.
Background & info on Mortal Kombat
The martial arts series Mortal Kombat is based on the popular fighting game video games of the same name, launched by the US company Midway (now NetherRealm Studios) and first placed in arcades in 1992. The violence explicitly shown in the series temporarily led to the games being indexed.
Mortal Kombat also includes several entries as a film franchise: There are the feature films Mortal Kombat (1995) directed by Paul W.S. Anderson, as well as Mortal Kombat 2 (1997) directed by John R. Leonetti. Simon McQuoid directed Mortal Kombat (2021), the third live-action film in the series.
It also includes the animated films Mortal Kombat – The Journey Begins (1995) and Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge (2020). On the series side, Mortal Kombat: Conquest (1997) and Mortal Kombat – Legacy (2011) were created. (ES)
