I saw Mortal Kombat (1995) recently. It has some nice painted backdrops and terrible '90s CG like you'd see in sci-fi TV series from around that time. It also has a lot of puppets and low-budget effects, and if they remind you of the TMNT movies, it's probably because both movies are the produce of New
Line Cinema. Some of the fight choreography verges on being decent, but it's mostly "man in animatronic puppet-suit"-tier.
There's a hilarious token black guy who exists to smile and nod approvingly at Johnny Cage, and then get his shit pushed in by Goro, to the horror of all the good guys, even the ones who presumably didn't even know the guy's name.
