Anyone else agree that Sean Faris is good as Kyo in this film??


I'm not a fan of this movie at all and I don't necessarily agree with them changing an originally Japanese char in the games, to be played by an American who is supposedly "half japanese" in this movie.

However if you get over all that, Sean Faris' performance/portrayal as Kyo, was pretty good. At least I thought so.
I definitely liked movie Kyo much better than "Jin Kazama" in the tekken movie who was played by a decent looking guy but talks like a nerd.

The only dumb thing involving Kyo in this movie was when "mai" (yeah right) puts kyo in an armlock and he starts getting hurt and whining in pain. Kyo is supposed to be tougher than that.

Sean's kyo was definitely one of the better actors/chars in the movie.
Much better done than Mai, terry or rugal imo.

I think Kyo,chizuru, mature & vice were the only actors/chars that fit the part well.

Not a good movie, but Sean Faris is definitely not one of the reasons why this is bad.

I thought None of their performances were good in the role....with that Yip as Chizuru could have been a good thing if the character was written properly.

Sean came across as calm & head strong not as some loud mouth arrogant American hero as Kyo...I'm surprised Hollywood got that part right. Sean wasn't bad.

Exactly.
Apart from the non-japanese thing that people often complain about,
Sean played Kyo in a way that's he's similar to how you think the game based kyo would act.

Thank you...I thought I was going to get bashed. I know not all Americans come across that way in reality.

He was the only good looking person in the whole film other than the useless Vice so yeah.
