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."Written by
Unlike the film christie monteiro really does not have much relevance in video games, she competes in the tournament tekken looking for Eddy Gordo and looking for her salsa grandfather hata that this passes away and leaves the tournament. See more »
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 »
Fathered through discipline. Peace through grace. These are the goals demonstrated each year in the Iron Fist tournament. As reigning champion over the past four years, we are honored to host the Iron Fist tournament in Tekken City. Strength through order. That is Tekken.

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 »
One of the better video game movies made. Pretty good, until they try to add a plot and stop the fighting. Could be worse. I say B
"If you can still breathe you can still fight, your only defeated when you decide." In the future countries no longer exist. The world is owned by corporations, each of which as a competitor in the "Iron-Fist" fighting tournament. Looking to avenge the death of his mother at the hands of the Tekken group, Jin (Foo) fights his way to the tournament. I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed this movie. Very, very entertaining with very good fighting scenes. It also stayed very close to the video game, complete with the pick-a-fighter sections. The downfall of this movie is the same problem with all video game movies though. When the movie is just the one-on-one fighting sequences like the game has it is very strong and fun to watch. When it tries to add a story aspect and a plot is where it begins to drag. But the filmmakers knew this I think and the movie never strays too far from the tournament aspect for too long. Overall, much better then I expected, and knowing it's a video game you will have certain expectations going in. I give it a B.
Would I watch again? - I actually might.
