The critically acclaimed Namco videogame franchise TEKKEN is set to come to life on the big screen. Rising from the ashes of a crumbled civilization, gladiatorial combat has replaced warfare, and ruthless fighters pit themselves against one another in a bid for global supremacy. In the midst of the greatest tournament ever known, one warrior attempts to fulfill his destiny and become King of the Iron Fist. Civilization as we know it has been destroyed and in it’s place a dystopian world order has arisen with seven all-powerful corporations controlling the planet. America is under the totalitarian leadership of the mighty Tekken Corporation and it’s CEO Heihachi Mishima (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa), who rules absolutely from the capital of Tekken City. Those outside the metropolis’s walls lead a life of fear and despair, fighting for survival as outcasts in a harsh world where resources are scarce. Rising from this poverty is Jin (Jon Foo), who is driven by nothing more than a desire to murder the man who killed his mother (Tamyln Tomita). In order to exact his revenge Jin must defeat the world’s most elite fighters and win the ‘Iron Fist’ Tournament. However this journey will show Jin a past that his mother had tried to hide from him and force him to realize a future that threatens to tear him apart.

 Personal Comment
Fighting 
Action enough? Personally I think the actors are moderately well fighting in the scenes. But I found out quite fake fighting scenes like Nina Williams (in purple) vs Christie. Kinda fake fighting between 2 girls, no strength at all, cat fight? After few minutes, Christie won.
Slow motion of fighting scenes help to focus my attention, so yea! thanks to the editor?


Plot
Nothing much to comment about it since it is based on video games. 
Thank god, they didn't drag the movie. Duration of 1 hour 30mins, is okay for me.
Contains humanity, which I think that is the purpose of TEKKEN.

Anyway, they will skip some matches, not like showing you the start to the end of every single match in the tournament.
Effects
Nothing much great effect in this movie, just like the background effects of the fighting ground. Japanese style, mountain style, and etc.

Personal Ratings
Plot: 7/10
Humanity: 7/10
Action: 6.5/10
Effect: 6/10
Overall: 6/10
THE END.
