Corrected entry: When Johnny shoulder rolls in the forest to dodge the spear, he passes right through the cable when he stands up.
Corrected entry: At the end, when the spikes rise from the dragon pattern on the floor, if you look carefully you can see that the spikes are tearing through tin foil.
Corrected entry: During Goro's First fight with the black guy, Goro destroys his opponent. After winning the battle, Tsang says, "Flawless Victory." According to the game, in order to get a flawless victory, you have to have a full bar of energy, which usually goes down even if you have been hit once. The black guy hits Goro a couple of times, which would nullify the "Flawless Victory" comment.Chris Klongpayabal
Corrected entry: There are two lines of people that come out at the big feast. The first shot, you see Sub-Zero leading one and a random soldier leading the other. The shot changes and Scorpion is leading the other. When they meet in the middle, it's just Sub-Zero. When the soldiers run down the steps to flip over tables, Scorpion is there. When it goes back to the top of the steps, it's just Sub-Zero.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Liu, Kitana, and Johnny go to Outworld to save Sonya, before Liu fights Reptile, the camera shows them walking down the street from a top view. You then see a person with tattered clothing on running across the street.
Corrected entry: In the end of the scene where Scorpion fights Johnny Cage, Cage is on the ground surrounded by bones and skeletons. Scorpion apears before him, and we see a close up of his face. He moves his hand towards it, as if he was going to remove the mask, but in the next shot, his hand is no longer on his mask, and he does the same movement again.
Corrected entry: In the fight between Johnny and Scorpion, Johnny gets knocked down. He has a clump of dust on the right side of his pants, then when he jumps up to the bar above him, and he swings around getting ready to kick Scorpion, if you look in the same spot the clump of dust is gone.
Corrected entry: At the end of the scene where Johnny Cage fights Scorpion, he fatally injures Scorpion, and makes him bleed and burn. Then just before Scorpion blows up, he jumps away. But how did Johnny know that Scorpion would explode? He didn't know anything about the tournament or the fighters before the event.
Continuity mistake: When Johnny Cage is fighting Scorpion, and he does his human spear, Johnny runs until he stops at the tree. The spear then catches up, and becomes wrapped around the tree in front of Johnny. When the camera changes view, the spear is just leaning on the tree. The camera changes view again and the spear is wrapped around the tree again. When Scorpion pulls the spear back, it goes straight back, and doesn't unwind around the tree.
Trivia: The autographed photo of Johnny Cage that lands among Scorpion's remains is a reference to Cage's 'Friendship' move from Mortal Kombat 2 (a comedy finisher where after beating your opponent to a bloody pulp you make peace with them by giving them a present or putting on a little show instead of killing them). Apparently many fans considered kicking the tar out of somebody and then giving them a signed photo of yourself to be incredibly egotistical, hence why it appears in the movie.
