After seeing the horrible live action Tekken film I rented this rather than buy it, now at £6 this DVD is worth every penny. This DVD has some of the best fight scenes of any animi. The CGI is great, the moves are right out of the computer game. The final fight scene between the 3 Mishmas is top notch. Then you get into Dragonball Z territory with the Devil gene and True Org. The main failing of this DVD is the dialogue between the 2 female main characters the lines are cheesy, I would recommend that English speaking viewer should just turn the language to Japanese sit back and enjoy. The other thing I could not understand why these two characters were chosen over many more fan-favourite characters. However like I said sit back and watch, don't think or listen too hard, and enjoy.

When Ling Xiayou is "asked" by Anna Williams to spy on Shin Kamiya, a student at an international school, for the G Corporation she discovers that she is not the only one interested in the mysterious boy as Alisa Bosconovitch is also trying to get close to him. From there Xiayou is drawn onto the conflict between the G Corporation and the Mishima Zaibatsu, and their respective leaders Kazuya Mishima and Jin Kazama.

Apparently taking place between the fifth and sixth games `Tekken: Blood Vengeance' is supposedly canon but if this is the case it apparently causes some continuity errors (I haven't played Tekken 6 so I cannot say for sure). The plot of the film isn't great and could have used a bit more thought in places. The English voice actors do a reasonable job but the films script is not great with some rather corny and clichéd lines. Also the lip-sinking for the English dub is terrible in places. Another minor let-down is that only around eight or nine of the characters from the game have any decent screen time in the film but the series does have more than fifty characters and it would be asking a bit much for all of them to appear in a ninety-two minute film.

On the plus side the CGI animation is brilliant in places and although the ultimate finale is something of a let-down, many of the fights up until then are very nicely done. As well as this there are some quite funny moments throughout the film, especially whenever Lee Chaolan makes an appearance.

Overall `Tekken: Blood Vengeance' is a film that could have been a lot better but it does have some nice moments and although these don't make up for the films faults, it does push the score up to three stars.

Animation is great for those who love Anime films.

The Action of what there is is good but short. There's about only three quick fight scenes spread out throughout the the 105 Minutes and it isn't enough.

The worst thing about this is the plot and Characters. It just feels empty and flat. It has some interesting moments but I doubt any true Tekken Fan will enjoy this.

Overall, it feels like a big cash grab that was just used to sell its new game. Its okay but at the same time very stupid and very dumb even for a anime, video game, film.

This is a good movie, I think you are able to enjoy this if you are/not a Tekken fan. I think that when watching the movie as a serious fan of the game then you may be disappointed as I had more expectations and wanted certain aspects to be pursued more. However as a movie itself it is enjoyable, the fight scenes are good and the CGI is very good. Would recommend this as a film to both fans and non fans of Tekken.

A fairly epic ending sequence with some impressive CGI makes up for the mediocre plot. Would have been nice to have a few more cameos from some other characters from the game but overall not bad viewing. Pretty entertaining.

Best Tekken movie so far (not that that's saying much). If you're a fan of the series it's worth a shot for the Heihachi x Jin x Kazuya three way fight, which is pretty cool. Wouldn't bother otherwise.

Young anime kids will love it. Especially young girls - as they are the hero's of this storyline. Very colourful and visually detailed to watch. The action sequences are also very watchable.

This is basically a story trying to match the figures from the gaming universe with a movie. The story is about hunt for Shin, who went missing after an experiment for eternal youth.

My partner ordered this as he fancied watching it. He seemed to enjoy it. The graphics are very good, the story is ok and is easy to understand. An enjoyable DVD.

Another classic Manga movie, the graphics are beautifully crafted and the whole thing is a pleasure to watch. My son gives it 10 out of 10
