Tekken: Blood Vengeance

Hello again!

Today I bring you Tekken: Blood Vengeance.

I didn't know that Tekken had a movie, until I stumbled upon Tekken: Kazuya's Revenge (2014). Then with a little google search, I found Tekken (2010), and Tekken: Blood Vengeance (2011) in addition to Kazuya's Revenge. 

Tekken and Kazuya's Revenge are both live-action movies (am I using the term right?), and Blood Vengeance in animation. Personally, I always prefer animation to live-action. It's difficult to get the right cast for live-action movies, and without the right cast, I find it hard to concentrate on anything but the horrible and mismatched acting or personalities.

A little disclaimer: I am a Tekken noob and am really here just to see people beat the hell out of other people.

Anyway, on to the movie! I think it's quite good, but really draggy and boring at some parts. The fighting scenes are awesome though. Right, so let's finally start on the movie.

First we get an introduction to Nina and Anna Williams, of which the former is working for Jin Kazama, and the latter for Kazuya Mishima, Jin's father. Now note that I'm not a very hardcore fan, so it was a surprise when I found out they were father and son. I always thought they were brothers or step brothers or somewhere along that line.

Anyway, both sides are looking for one special boy, a certain Shin Kamiya, the only survivor of a genetic experiment, and thus carries a M gene that provides immortality.

So, we have Ling Xiaoyu as Protag, I suppose, and Alisa Bonconovitch as the Antag. For Tekken players, you'd know Ling Xiaoyu, and you'd know she has this panda pet/friend and it is super cute and adorable. It also knows Kungfu, so don't mess with it. Alisa Bonconovitch is a humanoid robot AI, who has super cool weapons.


Anyhow, the two met at the school where Shin studies at, given that they were both sent in as spies to locate him. However they do not know the reason why their corporations are tracking Shin until much later. Throughout the movie we do see some cool moves, but the scenes are short and rather abrupt.  There are a lot of boring talking parts that do not really contribute much to the plot.

Moving on, neither Xiaoyu or Alisa knows that they are working for opposite sides, until Shin gets kidnapped, and then they are forced to turn against each other. However, after a lot of talking and revealing of secrets that are not very secretive, they abandon their corporations and join forces to 'save' Shin, as they both like him. Jeez.

look at this evil lil shit
Soon after they have banded together they found out the reason why everyone was looking for Shin. Sigh, always with the immorality card. Anyway, they rush off to save him, realising that the entire kidnapping plot was actually a ruse devised by Heihachi Mishima (the granddad??) to lure Jin and Kazuya to him, in order to get the Devil Gene.

ow but look at them muscles 
Ugh, confusing much. Heihachi ends up killing Shin by breaking his spine or something close, so I don't know what exactly the immortality gene is supposed to do. I guess it only makes you immune to natural causes of death? Alisa gets broken into bits, literally, and leaves Xiaoyu escaping the scene with only her top body.

So, after Shin is so easily killed off, Jin, Kazuya, and Heihachi start a triple brawl, and this is the cool part!!! Fighting! Cool moves! Heihachi almost wins, but Jin and Kazuya utilize their Devil Gene, hereby dumping Heihachi in a corner for the rest of the fight. After a lot more fighting and Kazuya saying that Jin is weak as shit, Jin busts out a second form (??) and proceeds to wipe the floor with Kazuya.

devil kazuya
devil jin!
Now, you'd think that Jin is the winner, but NO. Heihachi busts out some ancient relic summon thingy and wraps himself up in Mokujins, effectively dismissing Jin's powers because Jin can't reach Heihachi when he's all protected by wooden training dolls.

Then comes Alisa the hero, who, with her dying breath, releases a rocket punch that bursts through the Mokujins, and Jin splits Heihachi in half with A SUPER COOL LASER EYE BEAM. After that, Jin bids Xiaoyu goodbye (for now), and leaves her in tears over Alisa's dead cold robot half.


i apologise for the shitty quality but it's a split second moment
Don't worry though, Alisa gets herself fixed up and the movie ends with them as friends planning on taking on the King of Iron Fist Tournament.

Regardless of the holey plot, the fighting scenes are really cool and I especially love to see Jin and Kazuya beat the crap out of each other. Not so much of Heihachi though. Don't ask me why, but I just don't like him. Jin is my favourite out of them both, so I was definitely glad he won the fight. Though I find Xiaoyu to be a tad annoying and more like a little kid than anything, really.

But in any case, I'd still recommend watching Tekken: Blood Vengeance. If anything, watch it for the fight scenes. Who doesn't like fight scenes, right?

I'm going to end with my fav video EVER. It doesn't link to this movie at all, but enjoy Jin's face aw yissss.
