Follow up to the reasonable effort that didn't to do badly apon release and managed to thrash JCVD and 'Street Fighter'. This isn't too far from the first film really in terms of layout and fights, nothing too spectacular and not well acted, more pantomime than cinema, but like the original there are little rays of sunshine here and there, the odd little glimmer of decent action or set.

Lets not get carried away here though haha its so unbelievably cheesy and hammy yet all the cast seem to take it seriously, worryingly so James Remar who clearly needed the work. We do see more characters in this outing which was quite nice, a much wider range and some of whom didn't look that bad but again like the first film its hampered by outrageously bad cgi effects all over the show along with some nasty looking bluescreen work.

Due to this being an epic failure the third planned film, 'Mortal Kombat: Devastation', was shelved, not too surprising. Also interestingly...Sly Stallone turned down the role of 'Baraka', Lambert would of come back for this sequel but was comitted to another film, Michael Jai White was gonna be 'Jax' but got 'Spawn' instead and Tony Jaa and Ray Park both were stunt men in this film
