Tekken: the Movie (2011)

I just finished watching Tekken. It’s a live action movie based on the popular series of video games.

I did enjoy the movie. There was some decent fighting and it wasn’t too excessive. That is to say, the fights lasted a reasonable amount of time. A 10-minute battle gets boring (see the Matrix 2). My one grievance with the movie is toward the end…

***PLOT SPOILERS***

The tournament’s winner is declared yet 3 fighters had not yet been eliminated. I realize that their fights would be unnecessary to continue with the plot, but to me the movie feels incomplete without those minor battles.

I also found Jin’s lack of monogamy amusing. Society tends to assume that a couple will be exclusive. So when Jin and Christie are having their fun in the middle of the movie, I couldn’t help but laugh when Jin goes back to his chocolate-loving girlfriend after the tournament.

***END PLOT SPOILER***

So I won’t say it was a great movie. I won’t even say it was a good movie. It was an entertaining movie and I wouldn’t warn anyone away from seeing it. Though to be fair I am not familiar with the Tekken storylines so for all I know they butchered the plot, which is highly likely.

Next video game movie on my watch list is King of Fighters.
