Synopsis

After being thrown off a cliff as a child, Kazuya Mishima enters the King of Iron Fist Tournament to extract revenge from his father, multi-billionaire Heihachi Mishima. Meanwhile, WWWC operative Jun Kazama and Hong Kong detective Lei Wulong also enter the tournament to investigate on Heihachi's illegal activities involving cloning and genetic engineering. A handful of other skilled fighters are also in it merely to win the grand prize of $1 billion, not knowing of the true purpose of the tournament and fate that awaits them.

As a fan of Tekken I felt it was my duty to at least watch this and after watching this all I did was let out with a disappointing sigh. Here's why

::STORY::
This story takes place around the Tekken 1/2 period but differs a lot from the original story of both games. The main plot being Kazuya's vow to take revenge on his father Heihachi Mishima for throwing him down a cliff at a young age. Through this story we encounter many sub-plots filled within a short space of time, Jun Kazama who is an officer working for a Wildlife protection organisation has a sixth sense read more

Tekken: The Motion Picture is an adaption, of sorts, of the ever so popular fighting game franchise. I say "of sorts" because it makes no effort to follow the game's storyline at all. I'm actually a pretty big fan of the Tekken games and decided to try out the anime "adaption". Pretty big mistake...

STORY-

Kazuya Mishima is your stereotypical "tough guy" who met one Jun Kazama, the token "weak and defenseless girl" as a child. Kazuya's abusive father, Heihachi, then proceeds to throw Kazuya into a ravine. Yes, really. Fast forward to the future and Jun is working for Interpol and has gotten the assignment read more

The fight for truth has never been fought more truthfully than the fight for truth presented in this motion picture, which is most truthfully portrayed as a true and just cause perpetrated by naysayers who do not stand for what is true and just, but what is true for me is not necessarily true for you and at this point we must accept the truth that saying words like ‘truth’ and ‘justice’ over and over again is not going to provide any true depth to a storyline and the attempt to bamboozle the audience will not work on anyone with the intelligence to be suspicious read more

I'll admit that the story may have seemed controversial to fans and I didn't get it the first time I saw it when I was a kid, but I still like this anime. I first saw it back in 2002/2003. After that, I downloaded the movie and saw it again - even now its a bit of a guilty pleasure for me whenever I watch it.

I suppose its because of the fight scenes, in how they've fleshed out the animosity between Heihachi and Kazuya, while also giving Jun Kazama the limelight as well. It has its moments, in my opinion - like the opening, for read more

Both anime were made around the same period, and have similar art and animation. They both have a lot of action and adrenaline, focusing on characters who fight in tournaments. The only difference is that Gundam has mecha, while Tekken doesn't.

Anime: Yuu☆Yuu☆Hakusho
"Yu Yu Hakusho" and "Tekken: The Motion Picture" involve incredibly muscular and powerful people fighting against each other under a ridiculous premise with supernatural elements.

Despite both anime focusing on action, they each do a very poor job of portraying it.
