A futuristic martial arts action film based on the
best-selling Japanese video game from Namco.
The film plays out as a
science fiction story set in the near future, about a rebel who rises up
against the Tekken Corporation.
Jin Kazama is a street fighter that enters a
tournament run by Tekken in order to avenge the death of his mother that
he blames upon the corporation's powerful and controlling Chairman,
Heihachi Mishima. He knows that the only way to get close enough to
Mishima to kill him is to win the tournament. With the help of Lucas, an
ageing Iron Fist Champion and fight trainer, Jin makes his way through the
tournament, but in doing so, he begins to uncover his own past and inner
demons as well as exposing a dark underbelly to Tekken that threatens the
very existence of humanity.
With futuristic and imaginative sets, a compelling
story, and fight sequences combining fighting styles from all over the
world, Tekken is in line to become one of the greatest action films
of all time.
The trailer looks bloody awful. Check it out below:
