Your brother's soul is mine.


You will be next.


''Liu Kang - Brother Dead.

Return home. Grandfather''

Let's go.

ls the perimeter secured?

- Yes!

- Better be, l want Kano.

- Trust me.

- l trust 1 person. You talk to her.

Good boy.

She's here.

Right on time.

l love punctuality in a woman...

don't you...

Mr. Shang Tsung?

Now, you're sure she'll follow me?

You killed her partner, didn't you?

She'll follow you into hell.

Just make sure she's on that boat.

Sonya Blade must be at the tournament.

Me and Sonya should share a cabin.

Have our own little honeymoon cruise.

lf you so much as touch her, Kano...

you'll need a seeing eye dog.

Where's Kano?

Where is he?

Let's dance.

This is where you fall down.

Where do you get these guys?

The press says l don't know

how to do this stuff?

- Cut. Reset. Back in 15.

- l won't do it again.

- What do you mean?

- l won't.

- lt's the last shot! Where you going?

- To my trailer.

Then l'll shoot myself for being

in your movie.

Kill me.

l'll be back directing traffic.

Don't leave me hanging up here.

You're killing me!

l love you. l need you.

Excuse me,

there's someone who wants

to speak to you.

- Who is it?

- l don't really know.

- You don't know who's on the set?

- No, of course not. l...

- lt had better not be a reporter.

- Oh God, no.

You want me to find out?

Oh, great.

Mister, you're in my chair.

''Johnny Cage A Fake!''

Hi, Johnny.

Master Boyd.

The press is still giving you

a hard time.

Yeah, they think l'm a fake.

You're one of the best

martial artists in the world...

and l can help you prove it.

Prove it? How?

A tournament.

The tournament.

lt's held once a generation.

The world's best fighters

are invited.

You win the tournament,

you win their respect.

They'll tell the entire world

you're the real goods.

- So how do l...?

- There's a boat.

Leaves pier forty...

Hong Kong, tomorrow.

Be on it.

''The Temple of Light, China''


ls this the place?


This is where we found his body.

What happened?

After you left for America...

he followed in your footsteps.

Preparing for the tournament.

Grandfather ... it wasn't enough

to fill my head with that nonsense?

To save the world is not nonsense.

Men fighting in a simple contest

don't decide these things.

How can a wise man believe this?

We all believe in it...

including your brother.

Liu Kang has been given the dream.

He is the Chosen One.

No. He left our temple.

Turned his back on us.

Why have you come back?

l want to represent the Order of Light

at the Tournament.

For what reason?

My brother's killer will be there.

That cannot be your only reason

for going...

or you will fail.

Oh yes, l forgot.

We're fighting for the fate

of the world.

That's why you left the temple...

and ran away, isn't it?

The Great Tournament

was too much responsibility.

But vengeance...

that's so much simpler.

Lord Rayden.

You're still running away

from your destiny.


Grandfather, get up.

This isn't your God of Thunder.

- He's a beggar.

- Spare him, my Lord Rayden.

American life has enfeebled his mind.

Too much television.

So, you're going to

win the tournament?

- Yes, l am.

- Show me how.

Oh, don't tell me you're afraid...

of a simple beggar?

lf you are Rayden...

why did you let Chan die?

- Why didn't you protect him?

- Why didn't you?

l've had enough of this.

l'll find my brother's killer

at the tournament.

With or without your consent.

He isn't ready, my Lord...

and we lost so much time.

l know.

But there is no one else.
