Plot summary

What is Mortal Kombat movie plot?

Here is a short review of "Mortal Kombat" movie plot summary.

In 17th century Japan, Bi-Han (Joe Taslim), an assassin of the Lin Kuei clan, attacks and kills Hanzo Hasashi (Hiroyuki Sanada) along with his family. The only survivor is Hanzo's infant daughter who is taken away by the thunder god named Lord Raiden (Tadanobu Asano), the protector of Earthrealm.
In the present day, the forces of Outworld have won nine consecutive Mortal Kombat tournaments with just one more victory needed in the next tournament to conquer Earthrealm. Outworld sorcerer and second-in-command of Emperor Shao Kahn, Shang Tsung (Chin Han), orders his warriors Mileena (Sisi Stringer), Reiko (Nathan Jones), Nitara (Mel Jarnson), and Kabal (Daniel Nelson) to seek out and eliminate Earthrealm's champions, who bear a dragon mark, in order to ensure that Earthrealm has no chance in the upcoming tournament.
Cole Young (Lewis Tan), a former MMA champion and a bearer of the dragon mark, is attacked by Bi-Han, now going by the codename Sub-Zero. Cole and his wife and daughter are rescued by Special Forces major Jax (Mehcad Brooks), who also has a dragon mark. Jax tells Cole to seek out his partner Sonya Blade (Jessica McNamee) while he stays behind to fend off Sub-Zero; in the process, Sub-Zero incapacitates Jax by shattering his arms.
Cole meets Sonya at her hideout where he finds out about the history of Mortal Kombat and learns that the dragon mark can be transferred by killing its bearer. Sonya has captured Kano (Josh Lawson), an Australian mercenary of the Black Dragon clan, who had previously killed a champion with the dragon mark, which had moved onto Kano's body. Sonya, however, does not have the mark. The hideout is attacked by a reptilian creature which Kano kills by ripping its heart out.
