Storyline

Two of three powerful artifacts allow Rugal Bernstein, a man of evil intent, to enter and control an alternate dimension where gamers have been entering into martial arts combat for fun. From there, he awaits adversaries, killing them rather than defeating them so that he alone will remain as The King of Fighters. As Rugal possesses lesbian lovers Vice and Mature to aid him, undercover CIA agent Mai Shiranui teams up with Iori Yagami and Kyo Kusanagi to stop him before he can unleash a dread spirit named Orochi upon Mankind.

Should have just made a softcore porno...
30 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

I gave this a 3 out of 10 just in respect for efforts to make a film and when the color's adjusted the picture's visually pleasing in HD. An advice if you are going to watch it, increase the contrast and turn down the brightness then it will look great on an HD TV.

If you are a King of Fighter fan and you follow its story then it is best not to watch it. If you are looking for character reasonableness, don't watch it. 10% of the movie is based on the game, the rest a high budget softcore, action, soap opera hybrid.

Plot basics: Jabra Bluetooth headset transports fighters to a tournament in another dimension. Hot chick fighter gets fall into a love triangle. Martial arts demonstration with some CGI.

Film makers please stop abusing video game titles just to attract more viewers.
