The "Tekken" franchise has been a beloved game series to me. I trulyloved the game play and I loved playing it. The characters were verycreative and I almost enjoy every single character in the game.
After years of rumors about the upcoming film, I was excited to watchthe film. "Tekken" was like attached to my memory. It can already becalled an anticipated movie. I bet the movie already has legions offans waiting for the film to come in theaters.
As I experienced this film,. I truly am disappointed with "Namco". Imean, they've created such a magnificent game for us to entertainourselves. But, the movie was rubbish. How can "Namco" destroy its mostprecious work on the screen.
In this film, many things are different. Maybe around 70% of the moviewas different than the original series. The characters' storyline weredifferent and worse. The stages where they fight was awful. I'm surethat once you watch this film, you'd be disappointed with it.
Of course, the director is to blame. How can he destroy such awonderful game series. His directing was very bad. I'm confused. Whywould "Namco" choose a director who doesn't know how to create a goodfilm ... AT ALL! Dwight H. Little is such a lame director. He should beashamed of his work.
Next, I didn't like the character casting. I wonder, who was in chargeof the casting? He/she must look at the game characters carefully. Letme tell you one thing, they even have simple mistake. They cast aperson with the wrong skin color from the games. I can't even manage asmile when I watched the film.
Another thing I'm disappointed with is the story. How could theydestroy the story of the games. It was just so different from theseries and I can't believe "Namco" would allow that to happen. Thestory was so bad, 10 TIMES WORSE than the game series.
If you want to see this, it's almost obvious that you would expectgreat action scenes. But, I don't think you'll get that experiencehere. The fighting scenes are not fun and they are not exciting at all.With bad music, there's nothing spectacular about the scenes, not atall. So, if you have a list what to expect from this film, cross our"Fighting/Action Scenes".
If you're a "Tekken" fan, don't watch this. This is not what we call amodern film. This is what we call garbage. No matter how excited youare, I advise you to not watch this. I guarantee that once you go inthe theater and stay there for a few minutes, you will sure want to goout of the theater immediately. I am so disappointed with the result ofthe film. I've risked things to watch this movie only to know that it'strash. So, if you still have the chance to avoid, do avoid it. Overall,I think "Tekken" should get 0 stars. But, since there's no 0, I have nochoice but to give it a 1.
I've been expecting this flick years ago & luckily it was released inmy country. Okay, the movie itself contains a great action scenes & thelooks of the character is good enough, but the story is crap(mostlybothers me)... The story made the actions feel useless, & it's verydifferent compare to the game.(Well, Hollywood...) Let say it now,story are completely unclear to me even though it is a simple plotabout vengeance. This movie is too much focusing on 1 character makingother character's role got ignored... & here's what I've saw:
Christie Monteiro: Yes, yes... Indeed she's hot & most people like thisflick because of the looks(& action) & she's one of them, though she'snot the right choice for Christie... Kelly Overton looks better to beJulia Chang instead of Christie IMO.
Kazuya Mishima: His appearance is too far to be near from the gamebecause some of his looks seems unnecessary & personality(mainly).Actually Ian Anthony Dale is perfect to be Kazuya, but here they madehim like an retarded guy.
Heihachi Mishima: Now, one of the character that appeared in the entiregame. His personality is nowhere from the game even his looks didn'tespouse him to be a skilled fighter. Before watching this flick I'mexpecting he would do 1 of his signature moves which he's punch downthen strike the enemy with his straight fist.
Raven: I don't know much about him in the game since I only playedTEKKEN 1, 2, & 3, but judging by the looks Darrin Dewitt Henson looksperfect to be Raven even though I didn't like his outfit, & for thefighting style, I found some of his moves are inartistic.
Jun Kazama: I personally think Tamlyn Tomita looks ugly to play as Jun,even her voice didn't help her to fit her as Jun. In here she looksolder than Kazuya, of course Tamlyn is 44 & Ian is 32. Her appearancein here bugged this movie a lot... Actually in the game I like herspecially her basic roundhouse kick which she inherit to her son then Ibecame more enjoyable on using Jin.
Marshall Law: 1 of things that bugged this movie, & the actor has noresemblance with Law/Bruce Lee wannabee at all. In here his personalityseems a bit disgracing as Bruce Lee wannabee & his fighting style iscompletely inartistic.
Steve Fox: In here he rolled as supporting character. I personallyDon't know much about him in the game. Unfortunately after I've saw hislooks from the game, Luke Goss has no resemblance at all. IMO if he'snot considered as Steve I'd probably like his character....
Bryan Fury: Well, his actions made this movie became more enjoyable forme to be watch. The actor had a good looks & performance to be Bryan,unfortunately his skin must be a bit pale, in the movie he looksnothing like a half robot IMO.
Miguel Caballero Rojo: Don't know much about him since I only knowimportant character in the game. To be honest I didn't like hisappeara
