It's safe to say the 1995 Mortal Kombat film adaptation is a little bit divisive. Depending on who you ask, it's either one of the best video game adaptations there is or a complete 90s cheese-fest best reserved for the history books.
Regardless of whatever your take on it is, though, it's hard not to be fascinated by how it all came together. And now thanks to the YouTube Channel Drewski's Archive we have some wonderful first-hand accounts from around the time it was filmed.
Drewski, an individual who specializes in archiving old VHS tapes, recently uploaded a rare 46-minute TNT Network making-of called Mortal Kombat: Enter The Dragon to their YouTube channel. This featurette includes interviews with Robin Shou (Liu Kang), Linden Ashby (Johnny Cage), Talisa Soto (Kitana), Christopher Lambert (Lord Rayden), the director Paul W. S. Anderson, and producer Lawrence Kasanoff.
It goes into detail about how the different roles were cast, the difficulty of coordinating the fight scenes, and the challenges of filming in Thailand. According to Drewski, small portions of the video have appeared online in the past, but usually in low-quality and heavily watermarked. Now, though, you can watch the full video in all its glory!
