The Tekken Movie Trailer Succeeds in Making Us Want to Play the Tekken Video Game


(At least the costume designer can still dream of an Oscar.)

Our friends at Screen Junkies have the trailer for the upcoming "Tekken" movie that stole both Roger Huerta and Cung Le away from the MMA world for a little while.  If the movie’s anything like the trailer, it’s not going to be as entertaining as playing Tekken for ninety-two minutes would be, but that’s to be expected.  At least we get a glimpse of Huerta’s acting chops when he shouts, ‘This is Iron Fist!’ at the 0:12 mark.  It’s probably unfair to judge his entire performance by how stitled and unconvincing that one line is, but let’s just say we’re not surprised that he wants to come back to fighting.

The boys at SJ point out that "Tekken" is directed by the same guy who did "Halloween 4" and "Anacondas," and written by the same guy who penned such works as "Spawn" and "The Marine."  You add in a couple of real fighters who returned to the sport to take beatings after filming this joint, along with the guy who played Jim Brown in "The Express" in the role of Raven, and you got yourself a can’t-miss blockbuster.

So, being a Tekken fan...Jin wins, movie spoiled. If he doesn't this movie will be an absolute joke beyond the cheese wheel that it already appears to be...unless Brian Fury wins, in which case I approve.

Just like playing Tekken, i'll be high off my ass when I watch this. Unintentional hilarity will abound

I love that people that run businesses sat down at a conference table for hours, then got up and said "video game movie, motherfuckers!"

i made it to about 1:15 and could'nt take it anymore.

Wow a tournament where people with different fighting styles competing against one another. Only in the movies i guess, I can't wait to see this shit.

Hard to believe that Uwe Boll was not heavily involved in this.

This movie is seriously awful. What makes it worse for the guys who made it, is the fact that the full movie is all over the internet. Which I think is hilarious.

Looks horrible! Does anybody know how much Cung Le and Roger Huerta got paid to be in that movie? I would guess they got paid more to be in that crap film then they got paid for fighting...

wow looks just awful looking written by a guy who has done nothing but awful pseudo action movies!
I would have done the movie if I were those guys too especially after seeing how quickly the tides can turn on you via Scott Smith
