Critic Reviews for Tekken: The Motion Picture

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (2)

  • What was once an evocative, battle-hardened haiku has become a punch-drunk, derivative Saturday-morning cartoon.

    Apr 9, 2019 | Rating: C | Full Review…
  • TEKKEN: THE MOTION PICTURE suffers in comparison to other anime versions of video games, thanks in part to its truncated story line and weakly sketched main characters.

    Apr 9, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Overwrought characters spend as much time debating as they do fighting in this relatively short, fast-paced and attractively designed anime.

Audience Reviews for Tekken: The Motion Picture

  • Feb 20, 2009
    People who don't understand this film are most likely just not interested in the anime graphics and artwork. No offense though but it did suck. However the movie itself was just a simple test for 'new beginnings.' Though after the fatal crash it took they decided to throw out the plans in recreating it. This movie is innovating and strong. It left a lot behind and to make you wonder, but as this was just a sloppy copy of what half of Tekken is about then it still did good. Also remember this film was made 10 years ago. You shouldn't be expecting it to wow your pants off. So enjoy it. I did. I loved it.

    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.

    Cool Japanese magna based on the videogames with non-stop action.
