Fragmented and monotonous, without a semblance of the gymnastic cleverness that at least made the first Mortal Kombat film into watchable trash, Mortal Kombat Annihilation is as debased as movies come.
This film has no story, no characters, and no coherence.
Lawrence Van GelderThe New York Times
Here's the lowdown on the latest chapter in Mortal Kombat: deadly dull.
Los Angeles Times
The sequel is quite serious, charmless and critic-proof (in fact, it wasn't screened for the media), and it may attract the teenagers who have made the game so popular. [24Nov1997 Pg.10]
