New York Post - Johnny Oleksinski
The action film is as unpretentious as Charlie Sheen eating a Krispy Kreme doughnut at Six Flags. In short: blissfully dumb entertainment.

IGN - Unnamed
It may not be a flawless victory but the new Mortal Kombat movie is a fun time for fans of the game franchise.

ScreenCrush - Matt Singer
Frankly, the original Mortal Kombat arcade game had a better sense of narrative momentum; at least there the fights progressed toward a final showdown with the big bosses. Without spoiling this Mortal Kombat, it mostly feels like a giant prologue to something else. Still, for sheer visual panache, intricate fight scenes, and the fact that it’s not an out-and-out embarrassment, Mortal Kombat rates very highly on the list of video game movies.

Variety - Peter Debruge
True to the game, the violence is both ghoulishly creative and gratuitously extreme.

Chicago Sun-Times - Richard Roeper
This is an unapologetically violent video-game-turned-movie, filled with gore and also brimming with flat dialogue, whether it’s big-picture speechifying or mostly lame attempts at snappy, action-movie banter. One might reasonably surmise longtime fans of Mortal Kombat would have a better time playing the latest version of the game than watching this origins story.
