The year is 2039. World wars have destroyed everything and territories are run by corporations, the mightiest — and cruelest — of which is Tekken. Jin Kazama (John Foo) witnesses the death of his mother Jun (Tomita) by Tekken in the slums known as Anvil. Vowing vengeance, and armed only with his street smarts and raw fighting skills, he enters a dangerous and potentially deadly combat tournament, where he must defeat the world's most elite fighters to become the "King of the Iron Fist."

Did You Know?
Based on the multi million selling fighting games series created by Namco.
Miguels tattoo switches arms in the scenes when he is waiting for Jin to enter the arena.
Iron fist isn't about killing.
Okay just finished watching this and wow is it bad. I could sit here
and kick the heck out've it for not being faithful to the game, which
hooo boy it isn't, but then all I'll get is a bunch of people going
"It's Tekken The Movie, NOT Tekken The Game!".
So I'll review it as a simple action movie. The plot was thin, the
character motivations were practically nil and the fight scenes were
shot with far too many cuts. The acting ranged from over the top to
Interestingly for a movie that did not in any way respect the storyline
of the game, it went out of it's way to include homages to it. Hell
entire characters were in it for no more than that. Anna Williams
didn't have a fight or indeed even a line! She existed for no other
reason to name drop and to wander about in her underwear. While we're
on the subject of the Williams sister's what the heck is wrong with
Nina's face?!? I have no idea if this is true, but it looks like it's
been constructed in the operating theatre, apologies if it wasn't, but
They also managed to incorrectly spell Cung Le's name in the credits.
Not for Tekken fans as they'll get angry, not for action movie fans as
they'll get bored.
