Audience Reviews for Tekken: The Motion Picture

But not good enough. The king of iron fist tournament felt more like the king of iron fence tournament. Much of the movie seemed rushed. I liked it for the first 30 minutes, but then it sort of falls. A good watch and a good time waster, but all in all it didn't really hit the jackpot. The games are so much better. Even the story lines in the games too.

Not a good adaptation of one of my favorite game franchises. You cant just focus of the Mishima's story arc and not bring in the other supporting characters. And the voice acting was horrible. Hope they don't screw up the live action like they did with Dragonball.

Well the film does manage to have a complex story. Complex and utterly fucking stupid. Some guy is thrown off a cliff and sells his soul to the devil, there's a generic fighting tournament on some island where there are invisible dinosaurs and boxing kangaroos. There's also some sister rivalry and a robot trying to save a little girls life. All this in 60 mins...yes I did say invisible dinosaurs. It's too much to take in for non fans and not long enough for actual fans of Tekken. King and Armor King are by far the coolest yet just stand in the background. The animation is mediocre and conforms top far to many anime cliches resulting in hilarious moments of parody. There's some interesting stuff here but there are enough plot strands to fill an entire television series and as such there is no time for the fighting we all came to see.
