I did not expect much from this movie, and not much is what I was given.

It starts out in a cyber-punk/post-apocalyptic world that reminded me a bit of Johnny Mnemonic. Beside the shallow introduction, the first 10-15 minutes are acceptable. Then the Tekken/Iron Fist tournament starts and it really starts sucking. Poor acting, bad visual graphics, and high level of consistency in rules, matches etc.

The first few fight were quite good. Great stunts, interesting view into techniques and art forms and acceptable sound effects. But already two fights into the Iron Fist tournament, this all falls apart and just becomes a few quick stunts and a knock out.

I did not expect much, but come on! This is a movie based on a video game about martial arts fighting. You would at least expect the fighting part to be good and the tournament to thought through. You could have copied the game more or less - how hard can it be??

Watch this only, if you are a martial arts fan, and have nothing better to watch. Do not pay full price for the DVD. It is not worth it.
