First Tekken stills show surprisingly literal character translations

02.18.2010

I'm really pulling for TEKKEN to be the absolute best, worst movie it can be, and judging by this latest batch of stills, I think we're on the right track.

io9 has a whole gallery of new pics from the film, but I pulled the best ones here, which are side-by-sides of the video game character (usually a busty lady) next to her real life counterpart (usually a less busty lady). Oh, and Jin Kazama.

I have to say, I find it hilarious that they actually made Nina MORE slutty in real life, as she looks like some sort of horrendous S&M Barbie doll. Anna looks about the same (though her video game face is hotter) and Christie has slightly more clothing on, probably because keeping those puppies in place while dance-fighting and wearing not much more than a ribbon is a feat that can only be achieved in the virtual world.

Lastly, it's too bad no one could figure out how to do Jin's hair correctly. I've seen cosplayers make better attempts at it.

Extra Tidbit: Please tell me King and his giant leopard head are in this movie somewhere.

cmon man, why just show the girls on the page. they are the worst ones by far. Eddie looks spot on, Raven looks spot on, Bryan Fury looks cool, Yoshimitsu shouldnt be hard so obviously that looks good. the girls though .... ugh.

uhhhhh...what? When will they learn that making movies off of video games, especially fighting games, rarely if at all work.

4 things:

1. I actually enjoyed DOA. Not the best plot line ever but the fight scenes were fine and its a movie about babes kicking the shit out of each other
2. Nina looks amazing (and until a Soul Caliber movie with Ivy comes out we gotta take what we can get) and although Anna coulda been hotter, as long as the chick playing Christie can fight I have no complaints.
3. King better appear somewhere in this movie...cuz he was barely in the animated one and he's my favorite character.
4. I'm optimistic

It looks so bad that it's gonna be a guilty pleasure-viewing. Reminds me of a good time watching Street Fighter feat. Van Damme & Raul Julia.

man that is seriously pathetic

I was pretty wary about any hopes for this movie.
Now that I see it looks just like a STV or perhaps a SyFy Original... I can safely say it's worth watching only for some scoffs and laughs.

Why do they keep making these movies based on fighting videogames. They are all crap and only Mortal Kombat was mildly successful. Pointless.

Hmmz..

First off, King is a mexican wrestler who wears a Leopard mask.

Secondly, Nina looks too much like a super model than an assassin.

Christie looks the worst, she isnt even latin or tan for that matter...

Ugh

I am a huge Tekken fan, so, for me, I'm pretty upset about this. I still think they should have just made this movie completely CGI, like Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children and made a bad ass movie.

errrr

i still cant believe the mucked this up soooo bad.. there's so many amazing characters to chose from, so many lush environments in the game, amazing fighting styles like Eddies, so they go and take the most boring plain characters from the game and put them in the most dark, dingy, unstimulating environments possible.. Whoever the filmmakers and writers involved have no imagination at all.

This is awesome. If you're going to make a bad fighting game movie, you may as well portray the characters correctly. Though isn't Christie supposed to be Brazilian? She's looks way to Caucasian.

Hopefully this won't be as bad as the Dead or Alive movie, but I wouldn't keep my hopes up

Ah big whoop. The characters in Street Fighter looked exactly like the characters from the game and look how that turned out.

I'll see this just to challenge people at the theater to come back to my house to play me in a video game tournament.
