MORTAL KOMBAT 1995 THEN AND NOW
Mortal Kombat is a 1995 American fantasy martial arts action film written by Kevin Droney, directed by Paul Anderson, produced by Lawrence Kasanoff,
and starring Robin Shou, Linden Ashby, Bridgette Wilson and Christopher Lambert. It is a loose adaptation of the early entries in the fighting game series Mortal Kombat and is the first instalment in the Mortal Kombat film series.
The plot of the film follows the warrior monk Liu Kang, the actor Johnny Cage, and the soldier Sonya Blade, all three guided by the
god Raiden (spelled Rayden in the movie),
on their journey to combat the evil
sorcerer Shang Tsung and his forces in a
tournament to save Earth. The film’s primary
source material was 1992’s original game of the same title, but it was also inspired by and incorporates elements of 1993’s follow-up game Mortal Kombat II.
