Trivia

Tekken was released in Japan as an OAV with two half-hour episodes. ADV Films, the US licensee, combined the two episodes into a single one-hour movie, hence "The Motion Picture" subtitle. See more »

Quotes

Jun Kazama: I don't understand it. Why would someone as powerful as you throw your own son into the canyon? And why are you now flooding the world with weapons and planning its destruction? Why is the world your enemy and not your own hatred?
Heihachi Mishima: Hm. Then tell me what you consider justice.
Jun Kazama: Justice?
Heihachi Mishima: Rationale is a better word. Is the truth your rationale for living life like you do?
Jun Kazama: What do you mean?
Heihachi Mishima: Just this: words like "justice" and "truth" are empty concepts that have led societies through cancerous ...

It was pretty good for the most part
16 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

OK, Tekken the movie..... First of all, the cons are that it is far too short, seemingly will lead into a sequel yet at the same time will not, and most of the minor characters only show up and do not interact with the story in any way.

However, for the most part the pros beat out the cons. For one, the story does go into Kazuya, the main character of Tekken 1 and 2's story, the dubbing isn't horrible (Except for Law), the soundtrack is amazing with Stabbing Westward, Offspring, and some other late 90's rock artists, and often fits with the action.

Overall, if u like the game, see it first then think about buying it from there, if u haven't played the game, its a good rent, but you probably wont want to buy it
