    Released only three years after the first game, the 1995 blockbuster brought our favorite characters to life. Including memorable performances from Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, Linden Ashby, and Christopher Lambert, the franchise's first movie also gave fans the ever-popular EDM track "Techno Syndrome."

    Lord Rayden (Christopher Lambert) handpicks three martial artists -- federal agent Sonya Blade (Bridgette Wilson), Shaolin monk Lui Kang (Robin Shou) and action movie sensation Johnny Cage (Linden Ashby) -- and mentors them. After intense training, Rayden transports the trio to Outworld, the site of an inter-dimensional fighting tournament. There, the three humans must defeat the demonic warriors of the evil Shang Sung (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa) -- or allow Sung to take over the Earth.
