Movie Review: Tekken - Blood Vengeance

Tekken: Blood Vengeance tells a story set between Tekkens 5 and 6 that is "parallel" to the canonical Tekken fiction. Both English and Japanese-voiced versions of the film will be available, and the game's voice actors will be used for some characters. The movie is being produced by Digital Frontier (the outfit that created Resident Evil: Degeneration, Death Note, and Appleseed) and scripted by Dai Sato, writer for Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex and Cowboy Bebop. The director is Youichi Mouri, who directed the opening cinematics for both Tekken 5 and Tekken 6.

REVIEW:
I can't describe my happiness right now! I know i'm supposed to review other things first, but only yesterday i watched this and i'm too excited to leave it behind. Tekken was always one my favorite games on the PS consoles and when i learned for an CG ANIMATION movie from game people and Digital Frontier i was obviously "hell yeah!".

So anyway, as the summary say it's a story between Tekken 5 and Tekken 6 games. The characters who are part of the movie are the ones from the poster above, plus 2-3 more with 2 of them Shin and Alice to be two of the newest characters on the game but the main heroes in the movie along with Xiaoyu.

Where should i start though...hmm...as a movie it was quite enjoyable, except the last 10 mins or so which became a bit "nah" with the final battle and the very philosophical ending. The rest was exciting and quite funny actually. I was also watching the dubbed version and i have to say i really like the voices. They felt okay with the characters. And there was even character development for Alice! Maybe i was expecting more battles or even the Tekken tournament, but i can't say i'm entirely disappointed that it was more story based.

I really can't say much on the animation. I was like "O_O". I can not explain how magnificent it was! The best CG animation movie i've seen from the special effects aspect. And i was cursing all the time for not being able to watch it in 3D as well. It would have been awesome! Everything was so detailed and real! Even the background people were so well made.

As for the characters they picked? Xiaoyu was always my favorite so i didn't mind having the movie playing around her. I just wish they had used more old characters like Hwoarang, Eddie, Christie, Paul, etc.

The atmosphere of the movie in general is great. I think any person who watched the Final Fantasy movies or played the Tekken games would like it. It's not the super wow movie, but it's good and a lot better than the live action version which was released earlier this year. Plus, the graphics...O_O . I'm currently trying to convince my friends come over at my house so will have one more reason to re-watch it.

  1. I used to watch my then guy BFF playing Tekken, and he was so sweet that every time I was going to his house he was starting a new game picking Nina....I really loved her and mostly because we have the same name, but I thought they erased her after Tekken 3, maybe....Anyway, the movie looks really good....Thnx for the review Yiota!!
