"Mortal Kombat" more than earns its R rating thanks to the graphic fatalities that conclude many of the brawls in the movie. In fact, the film actually recreates several of the iconic finishing moves from the game franchise.



Early in the movie, an encounter between Kano and Reptile ends with Kano reaching into the creature's chest and ripping out its heart. That same move was used as Kano's fatality in the very first "Mortal Kombat" game. Similarly, the fire-breathing finisher that Hanzo Hasashi, aka Scorpion (Hiroyuki Sanada), pulls on Bi-Han, aka Sub-Zero (Joe Taslim, is a throwback to the original game.


Two of the movie's goriest moments also come directly from the games. Kung Lao's (Max Huang) hat is the butt of quite a few jokes throughout the film, but he proves its brutal utility when he quickly ends an encounter with the winged Nitara (Mel Jarnson) by turning the bladed headwear into a buzz saw and feeding her into it. A version of this particularly gruesome fatality was first used in the spin-off game "Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks," and has gone on to become a mainstay of Kung Lao's repertoire in the main series.



Meanwhile, Jax (Mehcad Brooks) gets the chance to test out his new arcana-powered metal arms while fighting Reiko. After beating Shang Tsung's (Chin Han) lackey to his knees, Jax claps his hands on Reiko's head, bursting it like a melon. This move was one of Jax's first fatalities when the character made his debut in "Mortal Kombat II."


Liu Kang gets an opportunity to show off his impressive arcana power as well. After subduing Kabal (Daniel Nelson), he transforms into a gigantic fiery dragon and consumes him whole. This is a variation of Liu Kang's dragon transformation fatality that he first started using in the franchise's second installment.
