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.

*Also try - Muay Thai Fighter

Quotes

Kazuya: What? You thought I do nothing. Tekken belongs to me.
Heihachi Mishima: You never understood the spirit of Tekken. That's why I couldn't put Tekken in your hands.
Kazuya: Tekken is in my hands, old man. Don't you see, it's over for you now.
Heihachi Mishima: It's not about me or you. It's about ...


Goofs

Anna Williams is a participant in the tournament yet she does not have a match at all and Yoshimitsu easily enters the second round.


Crazy Credits

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.
