Wow, just wow...
27 November 2011 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

Though I am not overly a fan of the games, I am familiar with them and have played a couple of them. And I also saw the live action movie "Tekken" and what a dud that was.

Then I saw this CGI animated movie, and I was blown away. The Japanese people are really on to something with the recent animated movies of this caliber; such as the "Final Fantasy: The Spirit Within", "Final Fantasy: Advent Children" and "Resident Evil: Degeration", and now "Tekken: Blood Vengeance". The animation is smooth and nothing less than breathtaking. The characters, the surroundings, the fights, everything looked so amazing.

Now, not being overly familiar with the Tekken universe, I did enjoy this movie for the story and the sheer eye candy that it was CGI-wise. The story was quite nice as well, fast-paced and easy to follow. But when there suddenly was devils and spirits in the story, it was sort of a turn of events that was a bit too much for my liking.

I also think it is quite good that they didn't try to cram as many characters from the game as possible into the movie. And if they did, I think the end result would have been a messy blur. The movie worked quite well with just a handful of the characters from the game. And who am I to tell whether or not they picked the right ones to be in this movie? But hey, it worked for me, as I enjoyed the movie.

If you haven't already seen this CGI animated movie, get into gear and do so. If for nothing else, then do it just to watch the amazingly beautiful CGI and animation. It is off the charts.
