Contrasting Tekken's main games and the movie is instructive, but one shouldn't let it obscure their similarities. Both are thoroughly preposterous re-interpretations of your favorite fighting game characters as a DBZ-styled free-for-all, best enjoyed by turning your brain off and letting their big, spectacular action sequences carry you along. They differ only in the density of fighting and the context they provide for it. If you're looking for context, this movie will scratch that itch better than the games and probably seem less like a blur of fighting game characters beating each other up in the bargain. And yet still only rarely are these minutes as fulfilling as any successful movie before it. It's nothing qualitative; just a simple matter of magnitude.
