Storyline

The year is 2039. World wars have destroyed everything and territories are run by corporations, the mightiest -- and cruelest -- of which is Tekken. Jin Kazama (John Foo) witnesses the death of his mother Jun (Tomita) by Tekken in the slums known as Anvil. Vowing vengeance, and armed only with his street smarts and raw fighting skills, he enters a dangerous and potentially deadly combat tournament, where he must defeat the world's most elite fighters to become the "King of the Iron Fist."

Trivia

Although Paul Phoenix (one of notable TEKKEN character that appeared in the entire games) isn't in the movie, his name is mentioned in this movie by Tekken sport-caster, where he got knocked out by Marshall Law in 28 seconds. See more »

Goofs

There are 10 fighters participating in the Iron Fist tournament. This can't lead to a conventional tournament because after the first round there would be 5 people left and there is no real format to make that work as semi-finals. See more »

Quotes

Kazuya: [as Jin stood up from the stage ground] Yes, there it is.
Jin Kazama: [angrily look at Kazuya]
Kazuya: The lust for vengeance, the hunger to kill. Like fire coursing through your veins. You can't deny it, Jin. It's what makes it who you are. The curse of the Mishima blood like father, like son.

Crazy Credits

After the film's end, there's an additional scene, showing Kazuya Mishima in a jail, then Heihachi Mishima with a Tekken soldier about to execute him. Heihachi Mishima repeats that he is Tekken and that the soldier should obey him. The soldier does just that and Heihachi Mishima is spared execution. See more »

The Dual Perspective
10 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

When I was a child there was 3 video games that to this day will always go down in history as my favorite games ever made. One of those games happened to be Tekken. When I first heard about this movie I was pretty psyched. To be honest, I didn't really know what to expect. To say the least I wasn't "Butt Hurt" but I wasn't happy either. From the perspective of somebody who has never played the games before, this would in fact be a good film. However, from the perspective of somebody who has played the games... I found myself saying "omg what are you guys doing this isn't how that happened" almost every 5 minutes in this film. I guess I now know how those guys who say "The book was better" feel. A lot of the Tekken characters in this movie where completely out of character compared to the character they portray in the gaming world. Like I said though, I can see how someone who has never played the console games could enjoy this movie. Aside from all that, the content of the film as story progress wise was forced. The action is what made up for that downside. With all that being said as a loyal Tekken fan. I either hope A. They make an anime movie out of Tekken that sticks true to the roots or B. Does this movie some justice in a Hollywood remake. They're going to need to take a completely different approach if they want to attract the interests of the hardcore fans.
