Who Played It Best? Raiden
My Two Cents
Despite not caring for either film anymore, I do think one actor in particular has an edge. When I watch "Mortal Kombat: Annihilation," I don't find many redeeming qualities. I don't like the scripts, the fights, the acting, the sound, the special effects, even the costumes are completely tacky. It's just bad movie all around. I think James Remar is a great actor today, but he was still trying to find himself in 1997, and the faults are evident in that movie. Back in 1995 though, I felt Christopher Lambert really tried to make the movie special. The first film didn't come alive much, but when it did, you can bet it was because of Raiden. There was something about Lambert's weird voice that really brought the character to life, and let's face it, he had all the best dialogue. Mix that with an actor at least trying to make this work, and you've got an honest effort. So because of this, I am personally giving the edge to Christopher Lambert.
