Movie details

At the beginning of the movie, you see me going to the practice menu and you might be wondering for what good reason I am doing this as it just wastes time. Well, this is for entertainment purposes as it allows me later on to perform the two Stage Fatalities, which would otherwise not be possible. After that, I set the difficulty level to Ultimate, select Shinnok as the fighter and Master II as the destiny. Then begins the first fight...

Fight 1 (Raiden)

I morph into Scorpion and perform a 12 hit combo (registered as 11) which deals 55% damage. Then another 8 hit combo which deals 43%. I finish this round by throwing the weapon, which I conveniently got as a result of the last combo.

Second round with Sub-Zero. A 12 and 8 hit combo remove most of Raiden's energy. Then a 4 hit air-weapon combo finishes this round, after which Raiden is killed by Shinnok's first fatality.

Fight 2 (Sonya)

Fujin starts off by taking his crossbow and shooting a few times. He decides that it isn't fun to shoot from a distance and thus flings the crossbow right into Sonya's face. This round is finished by showing off some of Fujin's moves.

Next comes Raiden. Nothing special here, except for some nice camera work.

Fight 3 (Liu Kang)

This fight is handled by Kai and Jarek. Just showing all the special moves of the two. Liu Kang is killed by the stage fatality.

Fight 4 (Reiko)

Liu Kang is raised from the dead only to take out Reiko. He does so together with Sonya. I must mention here that Reiko is a very hard oppenent as he sometimes performs a move at the start of the battle, even before you can block or jump away, which is completely unavoidable.

Fight 5 (Kai)

Kai is taken care off by Tanya and Jax. Tanya shows that the big rocks at ground can be thrown and cause a lot of damage. This stage allows the second stage fatality, however something unexpected happens which you should see for yourself.

Fight 6 (Jarek)

Quan Chi begins this fight and as usual shows his arsenal of moves, including stealing Jarek's Black Dragon Sword. In the second round, you can see the work of Reptile. But only his work because he self turns invisible.

Fight 7 (Cage)

Now it is time for Reiko to show how good he really is in the hands of a master (ahem). The second round is reserved for the only character that is not played yet and that is Johnny Cage himself. Cage is killed by Shonnok's second fatality.

Fight 8 (Goro)

Scorpion, Fujin, Reiko and Sub-Zero join forces to kill this beast. Since Goro resists any damage done to him, there is much room for combos. This results in the best part of this movie: the final combo with Reiko. I am not going to spoil anything. You should definitely watch this movie, if only it was for this part.

Fight 9 (Shinnok)

Shinnok is killed rather quick using Tanya and Sonya. Nothing new here.
