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

[Note: this review is written almost soley from the point of view of a fan of the games. Due to the amount of references made to the games, those unfamiliar with them might find this review confusing.]

The "Tekken" franchise is probably my favourite line of console games of all time, so when I found out there's an anime based on them, I was really keen to watch it. However, as I came across review after review on it, my enthusiasm was gradually curbed. To say the reviews were negative is an understatement - they made it out to be one of the worst anime ever read more

Recommendations

Both are based in popular fighting game series and have similar story and action.
"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.
Based on the playstation fighting game franchise of the same name.
