Strictly for fans of the game, but not as pitifully bad as you'd expectBy reincarnationfish (20 reviews) from Leeds , 13 Aug 2010
[Highly rated reviewer]I thought I'd add a review from someone who's actually seen it.
If you're expecting this movie to be good, you're going to be let down. But let's face it, you're expecting this movie to be bad and it's probably not quite as bad as you'd expect.
Fight scenes are pretty good in places, so good work on getting the most important thing right. There's plenty of signature moves on display, though some characters do better than others for this. The costumes are pretty accurate too, although some of them could have done with some toning down (Heihatchi's hair, Christie's bum cleavage).
I'd have liked to have seen a few less New School characters. Paul Phoenix is notably absent, Jack too. And why did they put Martial Law in it when we all know he *IS* Bruce Lee?
As for the plot, I really don't remember there being one.

Surprisingly goodBy DeadLegDave (4 reviews) , 01 Apr 2013Was pleasantly surprised by this! A friend of mine recommended it a few years ago, I started to watch it but gave up after like 5 mins. Thought I would give it another go and once you get past some of the crappy acting its not too bad. Even if you havent played the game I think its still worth a watch, some decent fight scenes, ok plot and watchable acting. Dont expect this movie to change the world, but if you have a few hrs spare and want a bit of action definately worth it
Full Contact Film.By TheReview (11 reviews) , 16 Mar 2013This is a good retelling of the 'revenge and discovery' genre. Your not won't find anything that hasn't been shown before in similar fair, but what you do get is great sets, great effects and dialogue delivered with believeability.
good tekenBy miketyson (7 reviews) , 12 Mar 2013as a fan of the teken games this stays true to the story line of the games and has some good fight scenes i was plesently suprised as most films based on games are usualy corny and poor acting if u are a fan of the game its worth a watch but dong expect any thing major
Kung Fu Sci-FiBy chris-m (16 reviews) , 19 Feb 2013This really is one for da kids. Unless you've been a fan of the computer games you're unlikely to get much out of it. A very humdrum (and unoriginal) plot is interspersed with huge chunks of smack-em-up action. Better avoided if you're over 20.
Tekken - K.O!By bruceybonus (1 review) , 14 Feb 2013If you've never played Tekken you will probably hate this, as a stand alone film it's probably not very good, but from a Tekken fan who's played or owned most of the games and loved the anime I actually quite enjoyed it! I loved seeing the characters being brought to life, and loved that the fight scenes were it true Tekken style! I would have liked to see Kazuya fight more (and dress more like his game character), but I guess I can't have everything!
