Tekken (2009)


In a future world where fascistic corporations rule, a street kid enters the prestigious “Iron Fist” tournament with the intention of killing the head of the Tekken corporation whom he holds responsible for the death of his mother.

Yet another cheesy video game adaptation, Tekken is a cheap and cheerful B-movie that does exactly what it says on the tin. The script, as you’d expect, is substandard, the acting suspect and dialogue regurgitated action movie cliches but the characters all look the part, the action sequences adequately executed and the fight scenes all decent. It’s definitely a case of MTV film making with the usual flashing lights, fast cuts and inescapably constant and awful soundtrack but it’s certainly not the worst video game adaptation I’ve seen and is no worse than you’re average Paul W. S. Anderson film.

Anyone with any sense will keep their expectations low and they will no doubt be met.
