Mortal Kombat Annihilation

“Compared to what lies ahead, you've been through nothing,” says Rayden (James Remar) to his band of martial-arts warriors about halfway through the story, possibly cuing the audience to anticipate even more intense effects-ridden battling between good and evil. In this movie—the second based on the video game—there are no rules, as Kitana (Talisa Soto) discovers in her struggle to reunite with her mother and suppress the evil that thrives on their estrangement. But the most stimulating, satisfying aspect of this action fantasy is the theme music. A revelation about the relationship of the main good guy to the main bad guy will be predictable even if you haven't played the game or seen the prequel. Written by Brent Friedman and Bryce Zabel, and directed by John Leonetti.
