I actually thought this would be good... big mistake.
29 March 2003 | by (Flower Mound, Texas) – See all my reviews

As far as this movie goes, I can only say this... WHAT HAPPENED!?

The movie starts oddly enough with Kazuya Mishima getting tossed off a cliff by his father, Heihachi which didn't really do anything for this movie.

The only real good parts about this movie were the music in the English version, (good choices) and a shower scene and implied sex scene between Anna Williams and Lee Chowlan.

Other than that... this movie sucks.

On a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being bad, and 10 being excellent, this gets a big fat goose egg!
