LAST TIME THEY WERE FIGHTING FOR THEIR LIVES. THIS TIME THEY’RE FIGHTING FOR OURS.
This sequel continues where the original left off; those who won that movie’s martial arts tournament now have one week to stop an emperor from destroying Earth. Christopher Lambert is replaced by James Remar; he tries to make the part his own by changing his looks halfway through, but that’s no help. The feeling that this is just a shoddy, bottom-of-the-barrel video game is reinforced by the poor special effects; godawful costumes and bad acting are additional minuses.
1997-U.S. 95 min. Color. Directed by John Leonetti. Cast: Robin Shou (Liu Kang), Talisa Soto (Kitana), James Remar (Lord Rayden), Brian Thompson, Lynn ”Red” Williams, Irina Pantaeva.
