Movie Morgue Wiki


In Paul W.S. Anderson's Mortal Kombat film, Scorpion is portrayed by Chris Casamassa and voiced by Ed Boon (the creator of the Mortal Kombat games). His background is not revealed in the film and he appears to be a servant of Shang Tsung for reasons unknown.

During the Mortal Kombat tournament, Scorpion battles against Johnny Cage, ambushing him in a forest with his living harpoon spear and then teleporting them both to his lair: a pit filled with the bones of slain warriors. During the fight, Scorpion peels off his mask, revealing a burning skull beneath it, and breathes hellfire at the actor. Johnny grabs a spear and shield from amongst the bones in the pit and throws the spear at Scorpion, impaling him and causing him to bleed a glowing, lava-like substance. Johnny then charges at Scorpion and slashes at him with the bladed edges of the shield, cutting a large gash in Scorpion's chest and slicing off a piece of his head. Scorpion's head then explodes and Johnny jumps away as the spectre's whole body erupts in a shower of fire and bones.

As an undead revenant, Scorpion's apparent fatality is not absolute as he returns in the sequel Mortal Kombat: Annihilation. The reasoning behind his resurrection and service to Shao Kahn isn't specified and he only appears during one fight scene in the film, attacking the new Sub-Zero before kidnapping Kitana. In the sequel, he is portrayed by J.J. Perry and once again voiced by Ed Boon.
