Mortal Kombat is martial arts fantasy film directed by Simon McQuoid, in his feature directorial debut, from a screenplay by Greg Russo and Dave Callaham and a story by Oren Uziel and Russo.

In 17th Century Japan, the Lin Kuei assassins, led by Bi-Han, attack the village of Hanzo Hasashi and members of the rival Shirai Ryu ninja clan, killing Hanzo’s wife and son as well, though their infant daughter is safely hidden. Hanzo himself kills all the attackers before falling to Bi-Han. As Hanzo’s spirit is taken to the Netherrealm, Lord Raiden appears and takes his infant daughter away to safety. In the present day, the realm of Outworld is at the brink of victory against Earthrealm, having won nine out of ten deathmatch tournaments known as “Mortal Kombat” that would allow the winning realm to invade, conquer and even merge the defeated realm. However, an ancient prophecy is also uncovered, stating that the ‘blood of Hanzo Hasashi’ would unite a new generation of Earthrealm’s champions to prevent Outworld’s victory.
