The King of Fighters - Preview

The King of Fighters

Preview by Jack Foley

A STYLISH, live action feature based on the iconic video game franchise, The King of Fighters follows the story of the ultimate fighting tournament that really is out of this world.

Karate kick the Boxing Day blues away when The King of Fighters is released on Blu-ray and DVD on December 26. Packed with breathtaking stunts, this high octane film follows the last surviving descendants of three legendary clans as they are transported to another dimension to put their martial arts skills to the test to save the real world.

When a Boston museum hosts a private unveiling of three priceless relics; the Kagura Mirror, the Yagami Necklace and the Kusanagi Sword, no one is prepared for the shocking events that follow.

Folklore tells that when the ancient relics are placed together, they become incredibly powerful and are capable of opening a portal into another dimension where the mystical entity known as the Orochi resides. Legend has it that whoever controls the Orochi will become invincible.

The beautiful Maggie Q (Nikita, Priest) stars as Mai Shiranui, an undercover cop tasked with solving the mystery of the Orochi whose plans are thrown into disarray when evil genius Rugal Bernstein, played by Ray Park (G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra), steals the relics.

When Mai’s boyfriend Iori Yagami , played by Will Yun Lee (Hawaii Five-0), discovers the Kusanagi sword has been left behind, she finds herself plunged head first into the action.

Mai is forced to enter the other dimension to battle Rugal and prevent him from merging the fighters’ tournament with the real world. As the battle against Rugal escalates, the cast undertake some out-of-this-world martial arts action as they karate kick their way through the fight of a lifetime.

The King of Fighters is available on DVD and Blu-Ray from December 26, 2011, courtesy of Universal Pictures UK.
