Here’s Your Tekken Movie Trailer

1 min read


Film adaptations of videogames tend to be absolutely awful – and from the looks of this trailer for Namco’s Tekken the filmmakers aren’t out to change that. It does however look significantly more entertaining than Street Fighter : The Legend of Chun Li and the Dead or Alive movie, but the bar for fighting game movies isn’t set exceptionally high.

The film-makers don’t seem to have taken too many liberties with the Tekken canon which -  like most fighting games -  is absurd to begin with. At least it’s an actual fighting tournament, and there seems to be a pretty big focus on actual fighting and most of the characters resemble their in-game counterparts. It looks like rubbish, but at least it looks like fun rubbish. Nobody was expecting Oscar material here.

Trailer after the jump.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
