Tekken

I have a bad feeling about this.

Re: Tekken

I did a search and found no other thread. I do recall we previously discussed the King Of Fighters movie, however.

Re: Tekken

Looks retarded. But that's exactly what I expected a Tekken movie to be.

Re: Tekken

Doesn't look great but I'd have to say it at least looks to be better than either of the live action Street Fighter movies, as well as the second MK movie. Really, there's only so much you can do with a movie based on a fighting game. The problem is they all try to batch on these elaborate backstories that have no bearing on the actual gameplay.

This video sort of sums up the pointless nature of fighting game backstories for me:

Re: Tekken

I think the only fighting game that has a story worthy of an epic action/adventure movie is Soul Edge/Soul Blade/Soul Calibur.
