Tekken the Movie, Let the Tournament Begin!Category: Entertainment
There have already been fighting video games made into movies like Mortal Kombat and Street Fighter.
However, they failed to engage even the hardcore fans. The last one, Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li even flopped at the box office.
When the first Tekken movie trailer came out last January, I watched it expecting nothing out of the ordinary.
Just like the Piranha 3D banned footage, the trailer captured my interest compelling me to watch it once it is released.
It also helped that as a big mixed-martial arts fan, real-life fighters like Cung Le and Roger Huerta are present.
Tekken also stars Jon Foo, Kelly Overton, Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa and Ian Anthony Dale.
The film follows Jin Kazama (Jon Foo) in his attempts to enter the Iron Fist Tournament in order to avenge the loss of his mother, Jun Kazama, by confronting his father, Kazuya Mishima (Ian Anthony Dale) and his grandfather, Heihachi Mishima (Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa), the latter of whom he thought were responsible for her death.
