The Mortal Kombat video game franchise is a fantastic one for anyone who loves arcade fighters, and back in 1995, the folks at New Line Cinema thought it would be a great idea to turn the game into a movie. The good news is that if you’re looking to relive the action from two decades ago, Netflix is happy to oblige.
According to a report from IGN, it seems that come 1st of April, Netflix will be bringing the original Mortal Kombat movie onto its platform where subscribers will be able to enjoy the action flick. While it’s probably not the best movie around, it is a cult classic and perhaps one of the earlier attempts by movie studios to bring video games onto the big screen.
The movie stars Robin Shou as Liu Kang, Linden Ashby as Johnny Cage, Bridgette Wilson as Sonya Blade, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa as Shang Tsung, and Christopher Lambert as Rayden. The movie will also feature a bunch of iconic characters from the Mortal Kombat game, like Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Kitana, Kano, and even Goro.
Following the release of the movie, the Mortal Kombat franchise has been adapted into other forms of media, like the Mortal Kombat: Legacy TV series.
