After this, he directed the successful 1995 video game adaptation Mortal Kombat. While prior video game movies, like Street Fighter and Super Mario Bros., had been all-out disasters, Mortal Kombat was well received by fans, and some critics.

Anderson was asked to direct a third movie, Mortal Kombat: Devastation, but declined again because he was too busy filming Resident Evil.
