Like in most video game flicks, the story suffers. It's played straight and high-tech, excluding all supernatural elements from the games and seriously watering down the triangle of contempt that serves as the canon plotline between the three main characters, Jin Kazama (Jon Foo, The Protector), Kazuya Mishima (Ian Anthony Dale, Mortal Kombat: Legacy), and Heihachi Mishima (Cary Tagawa, Mortal Kombat). The film takes place in a dystopian future where the Mishima-run Tekken corporation reigns supreme over a scarred earth and sponsors a regular fighting tournament to keep the masses entertained. After the death of his mother at the hands of the organization, Jin enters the tournament to avenge her while Kazuya plots the overthrow of his father.Read more ›
The year is 2039 and the world is ruled by corporations rather than governments. The old world fell some years back and the corporations filled the voice, taking over and controlling the masses. What was once the United States is now ruled by the largest corporation of them all, Tekken.
But things haven't changed with the exception of walls that divide one social class from another. Outside is a life of poverty and trying to survive, inside a world of luxury and technology. Protecting this way of life are the armed soldiers who rain down on the lower class should they try and move upward.
Jin Kazama (Jon Foo) is a young man who works the streets doing everything from stealing for the resistance movement to finding whatever it takes to survive. His mother Jun (Tamilyn Tomita) has done her best with him, training him in martial arts to learn the beauty of it more so than the power. But Jin still has much to learn.
When the Tekken soldiers raid the resistance and connect Jin to the latest tech theft, they set out to catch him. Their leader Kazuya (Ian Anthony Dale) makes the decision not to capture anyone in Jin's home but to blow it up instead with Jun and a few soldiers still inside.Read more ›
The movie copied many memorable aspects of other fight/apocalyptic movies. It bares similarities to "Soylent Green," "Running Man," "Rollerball," and "Thunderdome." One fighter says, "Do you know where you're at? You're at [not Thunderdome] Iron Fist." Similarities between this and various "Rocky" films is also noticeable. The movie uses a heavy metal grinding music for its many fight scenes.
The movie takes a number of small twists as there are forces within Tekken that want Jin to succeed, but more powerful forces that want him dead.
Lines form other movies come to my mind: "Two men enter, one man leaves." "Luke, I am your father." "Get up Rock!" and "I'm not going to kill the Agorn."
The movie runs fairly cliche and is designed for a young teen (male) audience.
No f-bombs, brief sex scene, and was that brief nudity at the disco? Kelly Overton's butt crack.
Story: This film takes place in the future. Kazuya, Heihachi, Jun, and Steve Fox are older. The city is living under a marshall law, run by a military, and Jin is a skilled street fighter trained by his mother, Jun Kazama. After "Heihachi" fires a missle at jin's house, killing his mother, jin decides to join the Iron fist tournament. Jin wins an open fight call against marshall law. He is then known as the people's choice and is sent to the Iron fist tournament. Steve fox is guiding Jin through the iron fist tournament. The second and best fight of the film is Raven vs Eddie Gordo. Jin fights his way to get revenge on heihachi mishima, unaware that he is his grandfather, and kazuya is his father. Jin meets a sweet gal, Christie montero. The story is great, the concept is great, stays true to the game in every way.
Casting: Jin was casted perfectly, he has the hair, the tattoo, the body, the hoodie, and even the fighting style. Heihachi looks almost identical. Kazuya still has the scar on his face, he still has his sadistic side. Marshall law delivers some great fighting moves as he does in the game, good casting over there. Raven, again looks identical to the game, no joke. Eddie gordo, one of my favorite characters. Miguel roja, nice casting, looks like the character. Jun kazama looks great. Steve fox, he has aged because he is in the future, but he looks good. Sergei dragonov, another one of my favorite characters, well casted. Yoshimitsu, a master swordsman, looks awesome.Read more ›
