Reviews:

Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion’s Revenge moves fast and fluidly. Each character possesses unique color as a powerful personality. Action continuously contributes to a consistently eye-catching adventure. I almost can’t believe an animated film that’s 80 minutes of nearly nonstop fighting can be this wildly entertaining.” Culture Crypt

“Voiced by a strong talent who bring the characters to life with deep growls, silky tones and fast-talking attitude, the fighters really come to life when mixed with quality animation and detail of locations and violence. Each character is just as you’d expect, and don’t fail to do justice to the heroes and villains on show.” Flickering Myth
