[[caption-width-right:350:Survival Is No Game]]
The 2010 Live-Action film based off the popular [[Main/{{Tekken}} fighting game series]] by NamcoBandai.

[[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture The year is 2039]]. [[CrapSackWorld World wars have destroyed everything and territories are run by corporations]], the mightiest -- [[EvilerThanThou and cruelest]] -- of which is [[TitleDrop Tekken]]. Jin Kazama witnesses the death of his mother Jun by Tekken's private army in the slums known as Anvil. Vowing vengeance, and armed only with his street smarts and raw fighting skills, he enters a dangerous and potentially deadly combat tournament, where he must defeat the world's most elite fighters to become the "King of the Iron Fist."

Gained a direct-to-video sequel in 2014 called ''Tekken: Kazuya's Revenge''.

----
!!This film provides example of:

* ActionGirl: Christie, Nina and Anna though only Christie really gets to show it off. In addition to winning her tournament fight she takes out a whole load of Kazuya's mooks.
* AdaptationalHeroism: Heihachi is a lot less of a villain in this than he is in the games.
** [[spoiler: Subverted in the after-credits scene, which implies the whole movie was [[TheChessmaster Heihachi playing everything to his favor]]]]
* AdaptationalVillainy: [[spoiler:Yoshimitsu. See InNameOnly for details]].
* BeardOfEvil: Kazuya has just about the most obviously evil beard and mustache combo imaginable.
* BlackDudeDiesFirst: Eddy Gordo gets knocked out of the tournament first round. [[spoiler:Of course, this means he's no longer in the tournament when Kazuya changes the rules so the fights are to the death, at which Dragunov is the first to die in the tournament]].
* BlackMarketProduce: Jin buys an orange for his mother.
* ButNotTooWhite: Irish Nina and Anna are played by a South African and Spanish actress respectively who are appropriately tanned.
* TheCasanova: Prior to his mother's death, Jin is shown to have a girlfriend, Kara... Who he promptly forgets about once gets into Iron Fist & meets Christie, who throws herself at him within days. Especially glaring, since the film keeps cutting back to Kara during Jin's fights in the tournament.
* CompositeCharacter: Kazuya in this film is a composite of him and his adopted brother Lee from the games.
* CrapsackWorld: And it makes the one in ''Tekken 6'' look like a vactation spot.
* DeathByAdaptation: [[spoiler:Dragunov, Steve Fox and Bryan Fury]].
* DemotedToExtra: Anyone who isn't Christie, Steve, or part of the Mishima bloodline.
* DesignatedGirlFight: Christie vs. Nina.
* DisappearedDad: Jin was raised under the impression that his father was dead. Considering that Kazuya Mishima is his father, one can't really blame Jun for telling Jin this. [[spoiler:Especially after it's revealed that Jun became pregnant after Kazuya raped her]].
* TheDragon: Bryan seems to be this, though is reasons are DraognWithAnAgenda, since [[spoiler:Kazuya blackmailed him with knowledge of his cybernetics, and that they're illegal in tournaments]].
* DualWielding: Kazuya starts his climactic fight with Jin [[AnAxeToGrind two axes]] in hand.
* FauxActionGirl: Nina.
* GoodPeopleHaveGoodSex: Despite his...[[TheCasanova questionable fidelity]], Jin and his partners generally have pretty good, mutually enjoyable sex, while Kazuya [[spoiler: has a taste for rape]] and spends his entire sex scene with the Williams sisters scowling and complaining about his father.
** Subverted twice on Jin's case, since Jackhammers were tearing parts of the Anvil apart looking for Jin, who was getting it on with Kara at the time, and that Christie refused to go along, since she wanted to fight him the day after, [[spoiler:though had he did so, Nina and Anna would have had a hard time going after him]].
* GoodScarsEvilScars: Kazuya has one of the later on his cheek, but is notably missing the enormous one on his chest.
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: Kazuya. As BadMovieBeatdown 's Film Brain put it:
--> "Maybe if he didn't blow Jin's mom right the fuck up, none of this would have happened and Jin would have died in the slums not knowing a single thing about his heritage. So yeah, it's kind of all his fault really."
* InNameOnly: Oh, boy...
** Kazuya was never thrown off a cliff by his father when he was a child, and looks ''nothing'' like the character in the games - It's so bad, that if you watched the trailer without knowledge that ''this'' was Kazuya, you'd be questioning who the hell Ian Anthony Dale was meant to be.
** Steve Fox, instead of being a similar age to Jin, is old enough to have fought in Iron Fist at the same time as Jun, has a shaven head & serves as Jin's mentor figure.
** Christie Monteiro is no longer a Brazillian Caporeia fighter, having undergone a RaceLift & now fighting as a MMA fighter instead - [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] slightly, due to Eddy Gordo also being in the film & faithful to the the character in the games, although the film has removed Eddy & Christie's relationship from the games.
** Marshall Law is no longer a BruceLeeClone in fighting style or appearance, and is also portrayed as an incredibly cruel and brutal fighter.
** Miguel Rojo is stated to fall under SmallNameBigEgo, and like Marshall Law, looks & fights nothing like the character from the games. Possibly [[JustifiedTrope justified]] by the character being introduced in ''Tekken 6'', which wasn't released on consoles until after the film was shot.
** The Tekken Force soldiers have been renamed "Jackhammers" or "Jacks" for short.
** Yoshimitsu, the cyborg samurai who steals from the rich to give to the poor... Is just [[LargeHam a guy in an elaborate suit of armor]].
** For starters, [[spoiler:he seemed eager to kill Jin during their fight, and before he did so while Jin's on the ground, Kazuya looked at him after he overthrew Heihachi, and Yoshimitsu nodded, [[AdaptationalVillainy implying that Kazuya bribed him to kill Jin, like he attempted to do so with Bryan]]]].
* KarmaHoudini: Jin suffers no repercussions for cheating on his girlfriend with Christie.
* KatanasAreJustBetter: Invoked with the Jin[=/=]Yoshimitsu fight, as rather than take Yoshimitsu's sword so that he has to fight with his fists like everyone else, the tournament officials hand Jin a katana of his own.
* LeParkour: The first time Jin is seen, he's running across rooftops smuggling equipment to a resistance group.
* MaleGaze: There are plenty of shots of Christie's low-cut pants.
* MythologyGag: Armed and dangerous with it. Let's see:
** Paul Phoenix is mentioned to have been knocked out by Marshall Law in less than 30 seconds.
** One of the decor seen in the arena is the same statue from the Hell's Gate/Heaven's Gate stage/s from Tekken 5/Dark Ressurection.
** [[spoiler:Although it was averted as seen in TheStinger, the Jackhammer ordered to kill Heihachi to self-detonation is a reference to how Heihachi presumably died at the beginning of 5, and Kazuya, who in the games fed Heihachi to the Jack-4s, ironically says Raven's "Heihachi Mishima is dead."]]
* NoNameGiven: Jin only uses his first name when he registers for Iron Fist. As it turns out, he had a damn good reason to keep his last name a secret, just not the one he thought he had.
* NoSell: Bryan Fury pulls this.
* PunctuatedForEmphasis: "I am Mishima Heihachi. [[IAmTheNoun I. AM. TEKKEN]]."
* RaceLift: Christie. Fans were never going to be happy no matter what race the actress was considering there are debates about Christie being black, Hispanic, Italian and even Asian. Anna is also played by a Spanish actress though she only has one line and she probably could pass for a white girl with a tan.
* RetiredBadass: Jun Kazama. She's not completely retired since she teaches Jin martial arts.
* SelfMadeOrphan: Kazuya pulls this on Heihachi. [[spoiler:It just doesn't actually work since the Jackhammers are still loyal to Heihachi]]. Averted with Jin, [[spoiler:who refuses to sink to Kazuya's level & kill him]].
* TheStarscream: Kazuya, naturally. Heihachi also informs Jin that this is the reason Kazuya tried to have him killed too, since before the tournament, Heihachi only had the one heir but Jin's emergence meant that there was a second.
* SternTeacher: Jun to her son. As a young boy she'd put him in choke holds he can't break free of, trying to impress upon Jin not to quit, ever.
* TheStinger: [[spoiler:A wounded Kazuya walks past the holding cells at the arena, before the scene cuts back to Heihachi's final words, only for the scene to continue & reveal that Heihachi ordered his executioner to stand down, and that the Jack obeyed him]].
* ThreewaySex: Kazuya has some with the Williams sisters.
* TokenMinorityCouple: Not an actual couple but the first round in the tournament has the two black participants fighting each other.
* TrashcanBonfire: During one of Jin Kazama's fights there's a shot of a group of people outside watching the battle on TV, with a fire burning in a trashcan nearby.
* WellDoneSonGuy: Kazuya ''really'' wants Heihachi to pass control of Tekken onto him, to the point that when he finds out that Heihachi has another heir in Jin, he sets out to kill Jin & take control of the company by force.
* WouldHitAGirl: Kazuya hits Christie a couple of times and is also revealed to [[spoiler: have attacked Jun]].
* [[YouKilledMyFather You Killed My Mother]]: Jin witnessed his mother's death at the hands of Tekken's Jackhammers, and justifiably blames Heihachi for her death, even saying this verbatim to him. [[SubvertedTrope Subverted]], as Heihachi argues that he saved her life after [[spoiler:Kazuya raped her]], as Kazuya would've killed her later if he had found out she was pregnant with Jin.
