Mortal Kombat

Revealing mistake: Watch closely when Scorpion breathes fire at the end of his fight with Johnny Cage. In the wide profile shot where we see the "stream" of fire shooting out and hitting Johnny's shield, if you look very closely, you can kind of make out some sort-of "structure" within the flame. It looks kind of like a pole. It looks like to accomplish the effect, they lit a "flame bar" or pole on fire so the flames would travel upwards, then comped it into the scene and rotated it using special effects to make the flames look like they were shooting sideways. Unfortunately, the pole/flame bar is still just barely visible in the film. (It's much easier to see on the Blu-Ray version, but can be made out on the DVD).
