This movie sux

This movie was terrible. It was like they made a movie and at the last minute decided to put Tekken characters in. The acting is shocking. Some of the martial arts is good but there is ZERO story and too many scenes are repeated in slow motion. Fans of TEKKEN should stay right away as this is NOT a TEKKEN movie! Very disappointing! I wish I could have the last two hours of my life back. If I had spent the last 2hrs in a room full of spiders and snakes I would have had a better time. I am giving this movie 1 star. There are no real TEKKEN characters in the movie and I would have had a better time watching paint dry. Please stay away from this movie if not for the cheap sex scene at least for the fake dialogue.

Not good enough

Has some good moments but not very many. The whole premise of the story is pretty silly to be honest and although I know it is based on a video game, it just doesn't match up. Some of the fight scenes are not to bad but Kane Kosugi, although he clearly has ability, just doesn't look good enough and lacks personality.

Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa is the only believable actor in this movie but he is much too underused.

The main evil character looks like a dithering old man that anyone could overcome and the whole implanted explosive was silly and all Kazua had to do was kill him surely? He also found it pretty easy to remove the device anyway.

So, if you like good action/Martial Arts movies I would give this a miss.

"You will get used to the noise"

The fact that TEKKEN was not a perfect movie isn't shocking, but it is surprising how significantly worse its successor is. Director Wych Kaos is not exactly known for making great films and his video game movie does not bolster his reputation. KAZUYA'S REVENGE is not so much an adaptation as a lazy spin off, and though it does some things very well, its deficiencies are overwhelming and make this an unenjoyable outing for all but niche viewers.

The story: Haunted by confusing memories, an amnesiac martial artist (Kane Kosugi) is kidnapped by a crime organization and turned into an assassin.

The best thing that can be said about this movie is that Kane Kosugi is, at least, a much more apt choice for the lead role than Ian Anthony Dale was before him. A stellar performer just coming off one of the best fight scenes of the decade in NINJA II, Kosugi does what he does best in delivering fights that range from endurable to pretty good. The low number of characters from the series limits the dream matchups this one can present (and the one it does give us – Kosugi versus Gary "Bryan Fury" Daniels – is rubbish), but Kane manages some respectable bouts with genre regulars Ron Smoorenburg, Eoin O'Brien, and Brahim Achabbakhe. Karate fans won't be completely bored.

Normally, my satisfaction for that regard would garner at least an average rating, but the movie is a metaphor for how a table cannot stand on only one leg. Aside from the fact that the plot in no way resembles the TEKKEN series and would probably make more sense without the label, the screenplay of KAZUYA'S REVENGE appears to have been written with a license to pad and instructions to only tell a fractional story... Many scenes are given over to time-killing flashbacks and montages of Kazuya aimlessly wandering around. The motivations of and relationships between characters are frustratingly enigmatic. Several times, Kazuya will enter a new locale, and with some unclear understanding known only to the characters, he will engage in an unprompted and unexplained fight scene. The movie ends without any resolution, clearly teasing another sequel that I hope will not see production – at least not under the same director.

The upcoming reboot – THE KING OF THE IRON FIST TOURNAMENT - will constitute the third TEKKEN-inspired feature within a decade, and the fact that fans are a lot less happy about this than you'd assume says a lot about the missed opportunities of the series as a film franchise. The creative decisions this particular one makes are genuinely frustrating, and sends the impression that not only did the producers not care about representing the characters, they did not even care about telling a coherent story. Perhaps the politics of direct-to-video filmmaking are to blame, but no one ought feel compelled to sit through this.
