The world's best fighters are invited to DOA, an invitational martial arts contest. There, four female rival fighters will have to work together to uncover the secret that the organizer of the tournament is trying to hide.
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
Majority of the cast do not match their characters in terms of Ethnicity or Nationality. The film is set in USA after it is owned by the Japanese company: Michima Zaibatsu. Most of the characters should typically have American or Japanese accents.
Jon Foo is British and is Half Irish & Half Chinese. Jin is Japanese by ethnicity and nationality. Foo uses his natural English accent.
Kelly Overton is American of Cherokee descent. Christie is Afro-Brazillian. In addition Christie's Capoeira and relationship to Eddy Gordo is not used in the films.
Ian Anthony Dale is American and is half Japanese quarter French quarter English. Kazuya is full Japanese however he denounces his citizenship. There is no mention of the Devil Gene.
When Steve Fox gets shot there are no bulletwounds visible, and the camera moves away from him. When it turns back on him, Steve does have bulletwounds even though the shooting had already stopped. Notice the obvious shots in the chest and arm. See more »
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.
