Mortal Kombat

Revealing mistake: When Scorpion and Johnny Cage are in the forest, you can see a car drive by in the far left corner. You have to look really close though.

Revealing mistake: When Sonya grabs Kano with her legs, the tape is obviously sped up.

Revealing mistake: When the three heroes are confronted by Subzero and Scorpion on the junk, Scorpion extends his living grappler hook from his hand. As he does so, the hook does not quite move in synch with the hand, indicating its origin as inserted computer image.

Revealing mistake: When we are first introduced to Reptile, Shang Tsung tells him to "follow them" referring to Liu Kang, Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade, Shang Tsung looks down to the ground where Reptile lands before Reptile even jumps down.

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.

Johnny Cage: We got a guy with things comin' out of his hands, we got another guy who freezes stuff, and then there's a man, who as far as I can tell, is made out of electricity. I mean, how did he disappear like that? What is goin' on here? WHO is this GUY?
Sonya Blade: Let's just think this through. There is a rational explanation for all this.
Liu Kang: He's Rayden, god of lightning and protector of the realm of Earth.
Johnny Cage: Oh yeah. THERE'S your rational explanation.

More quotes from Mortal Kombat

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.
