Mortal Kombat

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.

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.

Audio problem: In the final fight scene between Liu and Shang Tsung, Liu hits Shang in the face repeatedly, but there is one extra hit sound for which there is no motion.

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 sort of comedy finisher where after beating your opponent to a bloody pulp you would then 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.

Trivia: All of Scorpion's lines in this movie were done by Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon. Boon can also be heard softly whispering 'Reptile' when Reptile transforms from creature to ninja.

Trivia: Every character that fights in the movie does either two special moves from the games, either one move and one fatality: Johnny Cage does the Shadow Kick to Scorpion, and the nut punch to Goro. Scorpion does the living spear throw to Johnny Cage, and the fire breath fatality to Johnny Cage as well. Sonya does the leg grab move to Kano, and breaks his neck with the leg grab fatality. Liu Kang does the fireball move at Shang Tsung, and also does the bycicle kick at Reptile. SubZero does the ice blast at an OutWorld warrior and also does the ice shatter fatality to that same warrior. Rayden does the teleport, and uses his electricity bolts to stop SubZero and Scorpion from attacking the earth fighters. Shang Tsung does the soul steal fatality, and the morphs into Chan Kang. Reptile turns invisible to sneak attack Liu, and also does the acid spit.

Question: Apparently the character Noob Saibot also appears in this film but I can't find him anywhere. Where does he feature?

Chosen answer: Noob Saibot is not in this film. He makes an appearance in Mortal Kombat: Annihilation as the warrior who emerges from General Ermac, the red-clothed Lin Kuei warrior.

Question: Something that was bugging me, but maybe someone who knows more about guns can help: On Shang Tsung's ship, Sub-Zero freezes & breaks off the front of Sonya's gun. What good does this do? The firing mechanisms are towards the rear of the gun. She could have fired off a shot, just not a second one. Freezing the front only locks the slide, part of the barrel and return spring, right? A round must have been chambered, otherwise it would be really stupid for her to be wielding it the way she does. Sub-Zero was not far away, so the shorter barrel shouldn't be much problem. Sub-Zero wouldn't have been able to freeze the bullet, given how he couldn't' stop that icicle that kills him later.

Chosen answer: Sonya's pistol looks to be a Glock, Model 17 or 19. It looks like the barrel was broken off up to about the front end of the trigger guard. If she fired it like that, the bullet would have significantly reduced muzzle velocity because the recoil spring is gone (it would be in the front part of the weapon that was frozen and broken off.) The remaining part of the slide wouldn't have any resistance working against it. Not only would that result in less pressure inside the chamber during firing, but it would also most likely send the slide back into Sonya's face if she pulled the trigger.

Question: What was the point of changing Sonya's outfit from her fighting gear to that dress when she is being held hostage?

Chosen answer: It's a villain cliche. When they capture a pretty woman, they will always take her fighting clothes and put her in a sexy outfit.
