Storyline

Two of three powerful artifacts allow Rugal Bernstein, a man of evil intent, to enter and control an alternate dimension where gamers have been entering into martial arts combat for fun. From there, he awaits adversaries, killing them rather than defeating them so that he alone will remain as The King of Fighters. As Rugal possesses lesbian lovers Vice and Mature to aid him, undercover CIA agent Mai Shiranui teams up with Iori Yagami and Kyo Kusanagi to stop him before he can unleash a dread spirit named Orochi upon Mankind.

The best game turns into the worst movie
18 September 2010 | by xa_freedom09See all my reviews

Seriously,what the heck those Hollywood guys think?

I mean this story is based on the game that involved ancient japan folklore with obviously with Asian characters as the central story so anyone can tell KYO KUSANAGI is a Japanese,and i can't even see a bit of oriental in Kyo,not to be racist but ,now Sean Farris as Kyo??no offense man but you're not even close,grow some hairy face and cast yourself as Ralf--The most acceptable character for this movie storyline but unfortunately left out--and leave Kyo's casting to any young Asian movie star.

Not just this movie,look at DoA,Tekken,and Dragon Ball,as a fan of those games & anime title it truly hurts me to see kazuya not played by an Asian,hell even goku changed stayed as a super saiyant all the time in the movie version??

And finally : Maggie Q as Mai Shiranui,google for Mai Shiranui and you'll see there's no physical resemblance apart from the long hair and slim legs.

Definitely this is one of the most horrible adaption movie.
