Oh, I don't mean from a quality perspective, because the movie adaptation of Namco Bandai's popular fighter looks deliciously awful. But the fighting game movie bar has been set extremely low for Tekken.

The first trailer for the live action flick is heavy on reminding you that someone competing in the Iron Fist tournament is "the people's choice" and that his mother was killed. And I think you know where this is going. Clearly the director of Tekken, Dwight Little, was not interested in taking liberties with the cast and costumes of the Tekken series.


Tekken looks about as good as Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-li and Dead or Alive, which is comforting. But I am a little concerned that I don't see Roger Jr. among the Iron Fist-ers.

Thanks, Andrew!
