From off the bat I could tell that this was going to be weak. Especially compared to its predecessor, which I only found semi appealing due to what I could not recognize as Tekken (No matter how good that stuff was).
This shit looks even more removed from Tekken, than the original movie.
The first thing you notice is that the budget on this bad boy was cut significantly from the last movie, which I’m guessing did well enough to justify a sequel (Most likely cause it’s based on a super popular video game), but not well enough to spend the cash needed for the video game pizazz this movie is missing.
It does have some pretty good fight scenes in it and the action is a little more straight up it seems. Less fancy.
Everything was so watered down in comparison to the last movie including the appearances of Gary Daniels as Bryan Fury (A fairly different character in this movie than he was in the last) and Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa as Heihachi Mishima. Both of which are two of three characters I know from the Tekken games and are in the first movie, to be in this Sequel (The other being Kazuya Mishima played by a different actor than the one in the 1st flick). I could not tell you if other characters in the movie are in the game, but that would only be likely if the characters are from Tekken 5 and up cause I’m not as familiar with those games.Which would be ironic. The overall plot is influenced by the first game.
Overall, I did like the realistic approach they did for the second Tekken movie despite being still set in a post-Apocalyptic future, but like the first movie, I have a problem with the fact that it’s not Tekken enough for me
