That first movie really nails the plot of the first two games, which are all about a tournament. In that film, the heroes of Earthrealm have to fight the villains of Outworld in a tournament to the death, and the heroes do just that. That said, the recent movie DOESN’T EVEN HAVE A TOURNAMENT. I can’t shout that out loud enough. Yes, the reboot has a ton of Easter eggs for the fans, but so what? I feel like the 1995 movie, bad special effects and all, much more closely follows the Mortal Kombat stories that I remember, and when it comes to a movie, story counts, dammit.
