Is adapting a game too hard these days?!
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 Fi-zzzzzzzzzZZZ
It's so unbelievable that this is the director of "Free Willy 2" and "Anacondas: The Hunt for the Blood Orchid", because Dwight H. Little tries as hard as he can in his films, usually, but his latest video game adaptation doesn't carry his name. All movies that has been adapted from a Japanese video game or an anime has never succeeded to be at least decent. "Dragonball Evolution" is the worst out of them all by the lack of story adaptation, acting, and pretty much everything else. "Tekken" has sadly done the same by changing couples, changing the fighting style of Christie + making her white, even though she's the sister of Eddie, a black Jamaican fighter! A least the portrayal of Eddie did well in his original fighting style. And nice choice for the portrayal of Raven, honestly I would have gone for Wesley Snipes BAHAHAHA...ha....ha..... anyway, the background story has no comparison the world of "Tekken" whatsoever. It's just a sci-fi fighting movie with characters from the game "Tekken".
Oh, and the thing that just makes want to run straight through a wall is the make-up of Heihachi Mishima! It was so ridiculous and fake that it just makes me laugh, because it all seems as if this a comedic parody. And what killed the entire movie was the confession of Heihachi to Jin saying "You are my son.". Listen, it's now obvious that this was titled "Tekken" just to bring in the audience, because it's not even close to the original story. And you said "Eragon" was the worst, well, you haven't seen nothing, yet. I wanted to just go back to my room and leave the film be, but I stayed there to finish as it started to bore the crap out of me. And here's another horrid thing: At the beginning, Jin has this girlfriend as they are the main couples in the movie, but later on, he gets another who would be Christie. It's so dumb, and then at the end, he's walking down the street as his old girlfriend comes out of an alleyway, smiling as if she was about to run to him and hug him, but... it ends. That was a terribly written ending, or how about the entire film. A for the acting, I say most of them were okay, but others were horrid. Just that.
Overall, this film was terrible in its adapting, but it did have some sequences of huge explosions and nice CG shots that you don't usually see in movies like these. It's filled with boredom and cheesy lines, so to the "Tekken" fans, don't bother thinking about it. I'm the MovieWiz, thanks for reading.
