excellent game, horrible movie
18 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I personally am a huge fan of the Tekken series (specifically 3 and Tag Tournament), and when I saw that there was a Tekken anime, I was thrilled. Since I couldn't find it anywhere, I set it to download on Kazaa. It took two or three days to download, building up the anticipation of seeing one of my favorite video games brought to life. When I finally watched it, I was thoroughly disappointed. This movie had very little redeeming qualities to it: the characters were mostly annoying (ie- Lee Chaolan, Nina and Anna, Heihachi, Jun Kazama), and as has been mentioned before, the fighting and character development were minimal. Seemed like the most interesting character was Jack and the little girl, though it seemed a little corny and done before (the whole machine learning how to feel, etc...). The plot line went all over the place and ended up barely resembling the game. What also bothered me was that some of the more interesting characters from the series (Paul Phoenix, King and Armor King, Yoshimitsu, etc...) were in it for about 5 seconds in the background in the final scene. Much of the movie was completely gratuitous (Anna's shower scene, the stealth mutant dinosaurs). This movie gets a 2 for effort and the couple half-interesting scenes with Jack.
