Tekken


Starring Jon Foo, Kelly Overton, Tamlyn Tomita, Ian Anthony Dale, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, and Luke Goss

For today's movie review I'd like to show you Tekken, a movie that does not suck. Movies that don't suck is a thing on G4 where they show a movie that they think doesn't suck and Tekken was one of them. I really didn't know what to expect from this movie since it was based from a video game that I've only played a couple of times and didn't know much about it other than it was a fighting game. Tekken takes place in a futuristic world where the only people that get a fighting chance are the ones who know how to fight. When Jin Kazama, a street fighter decides that he wants to join in on this money making fighting world his mother/karate teacher strongly objects. Jin doesn't understand why at first but, when she gets killed by the guy who runs the tournament he decides to join in and quickly finds out. Is this the easy going money making civilization that he has always dreamed of or, is it a nightmare world that he just wants to get out of.

I give this movie a 8 out of 10
