MORTAL KOMBAT!!!! Ready. Set. FIGHT!
Today we are reviewing the 1995 film Mortal Kombat, based on the video games of the same name. This film is epic(ly bad)! With Puppets! and Fight Scenes! and Human Corpse Candle Holders! (ew…)
We at Plot Culture think this movie would make a most epic party movie and have devised a Drinking Game for such events. Here is a Printable Drinking Game Cheat Sheet! If you take the challenge, please let us know! Send us pictures! Especially if you are pretty and single. Heeeeyyyyy….
Please Drink Responsibly. And don’t give people tea if they don’t want tea.
The film starts with Liu Kang being called back to take part in the FIGHT FOR HUMANITY!! Oh my. He is joined by Sonya and Johnny Cage, as well as a whole bunch of other random people and Thistle’s favorite character: the random black guy who only has a handful of lines and then dies horribly in Mortal Kombat but was cool and should have had a better role.
They are guided in their journey by the eternal thunder god Raiden, a white dude with smoker’s lung, and together they all end up in another dimension/place by taking a nightmare boat. For some reason Raiden likes them and swishes about not doing much but looking intimidating. In the weird dimension/place they meet Kitana, a hot ninja princess who seems to have the ability to mentally project a phrase of words into your head, provided she has said that exact phrase to you five minutes before hand. Its a weird power. They fight a bunch of lackeys in Mortal Kombat, including a creepy puppet that kills the cool black dude. Sonya gets creeped on but its never really explained and Johnny Cage pulls a roadrunner to save the day. Sonya and Shang Tsung have a makeover party and then Shang is kicked by Liu Kang. A lot. An awful lot of kicking. Mortal Kombat Kicking!
Anway. Thats the summary, check out the podcast!
