I know full well this is going to both blow & suck at the same time. Example "Mortal Kombat" movie was crap, but I loved it at the time and for it's time it was a good game to movie conversion. Recently the world was handed a steaming turd in the form of "Dead Or Alive". It will remain to be seen if this film will stay true to the game, I know already that it does not follow the first at all, as many early characters are missing and later characters are present. There's no Paul, THERE'S NO KING!
So I hate it already, how hard is it to get some real life wrestler and stick a lions head on him? Yet, they've got an American guy playing Yoshimitsu? If they can't manage King, yet they can Yoshimitsu, I'm assuming the budget is blown on silly CGI. Otherwise it's safe to say the Yoshimitsu character will be changed completely! Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa as Heihachi...WTF! How will that work? Is he going to pile on about 200lbs? Also, Gary Daniels (Fist Of The North Star) is playing Bryan Fury which I agree is a good choice there, apart from Gary can't act his way out of a paper bag.
A live-action Tekken film should have been made over ten years ago, this is just going to p**s fans of the series off as it has done me already. It'll be in cinema's about 2-3 weeks and then be straight in with the bargain-bin DVD's. Prove me wrong Crystal Sky Pictures....Dear Lord!
