After watching the original Mortal Kombat movie for the umpteenth time and, for the umpteenth time remarking on how spindly and unbelievably un-athletic Bridgett Wilson's Sonya Blade is I asked myself, "Who would be an ideal actress to portray Sonya Blade?" It didn't take long for one to dawn on me and then I asked myself, "What about the other characters? If I had free reign of the movie industry, who would I cast in a MK1 movie?" I spent some time handpicking my favorite martial artists / martial arts actors in terms of actual martial arts ability (very important) and how much I felt they fit their chosen part. What follows is that list.
