#13 - Street Fighter + Mortal Kombat: The Movie Reviews Part 1

Season 1 - Episode 8 - Aired 4/15/2008

The Nostalgia starts off this double-episode special by reviewing the movie Street Fighter. Even though it contains Raul Julia's final performance, it still doesn't stop the Nostalgia critic from hating the movie. With a confusing story, Jean-Claude Van Damme's accent, and an overly huge cast, the Nostalgia Critic shows that once again, movies based on videogames are terrible.

The finale of the two-part review special has the Nostalgia Critic reviewing the movie Mortal Kombat. However, with Johnny Cage's one-liners, Raiden's voice, an overly weak CIA agent, an Asian actor throw-in, and a PG-13 rating, the Nostalgia Critic finds more frustration than entertainment from this movie.
