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."

It's not Mortal Kombat, but it's still freaking awesome.
19 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

Now this is a cool movie adaptation of a video game series. I only recall playing Tekken 3 and the arcade game version. When I realized this film existed, I was surprise because while the franchise was popular, it wasn't as big as Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter. So I checked this action out and found myself impressed.

Plot: After numerous wars messed up the planet, governments dissolved and corporations took over, the most powerful being Tekken, headed my Heihachi Mishima (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa from Mortal Kombat!). Every year, a tournament called Iron Fist takes place were fighters from different corporations battle each other brutally for the people's entertainment. When his mother gets killed by Tekken's Jackhammer soldiers, Jin Kazama blames Heihachi and decides to go kill him at the Iron Fist tournament, but first he must get past the likes of Bryan Fury, Nina Williams, Yoshimitsu, and other furious fighters that are also at the tournament.

This is a true action movie. Brutal fights, diverse cast of characters, sexy women, great use of music, and a cool story. It's awesome that Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa is in this movie having previously played as Shang Sung from Mortal Kombat.

I'm not sure why some people didn't like this movie adaptation. I'm sure I did. This is good old-fashion tournament fighting and I highly recommend that you check this out. MORTAL KOMBAT!!! Oh, sorry, wrong game.
