It was pretty good for the most part
16 October 2005 | by tomservo88See 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
