king of fighters KING OF FIGHTERS

With Maggie Q, Sean Faris, Will Yun Lee, Ray Park, David Leitch, Hiro Kanagawa

Written by Rita Augustine, Matthew Ryan Fischer & Chris Chow
Directed by Gordon Chan

Based on the popular arcade video game, King Of Fighters unfortunately does not deliver the kind of punch you get from playing the game. With a mysterious futuristic system whereby fighters are challenged and pulled into another dimension where they have intense special powers, naturally someone with evil goals infiltrate to bend things in his megalomaniacal favour. The fight scenes are not badly executed, but it is the type of wire-work audiences have grown accustomed to in a post-Matrix world.
