YMMV / The King of Fighters (2010)

Go To

  • Retroactive Recognition: CIA Agent Terry Bogard is played by David Leitch, who would later become famous for making the John Wick films alongside fellow stunt coordinator Chad Stahelski, and later directed Atomic Blonde, Deadpool 2 and Hobbs & Shaw on his own right.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character: Getting Ray Park to play Rugal, on paper, sounds like having struck casting gold, given that this is the same guy who played Darth Maul. Unfortunately, the filmmakers seemed to have Toad more in mind...

  • Video Game Movies Suck: The movie is a hot mess, essentially being a KOF movie In Name Only. Problems include (but are not limited to) white-washing Kyo, turning Mai and Terry into CIA agents for no reason, and a nonsensical plot about a "King of Fighters" dimension.
  • WTH, Casting Agency?: Needless to say, the last thing one would expect of a character named Kyo Kusanagi is for it to be played by a guy that is obviously Caucasian (which only makes the film's attempts of justifying it by claiming that he's half-Japanese, half-American make even less sense).

How well does it match the trope?
