Listen up Hollywood knucklehead. When it comes to presenting action scenes in video game-adapted-to-live action film, you suck donkey balls.  Pay closer attention to the fans for a lesson on getting it right.  The indie stunt team Thousand Pounds Action Company has debuted Street Fighter X Tekken: The Devil Within, a short fan film based on the recently launched Street Fighter x Tekken with substantially less budget than a typical studio film, yet these guys easily put them to shame (I'm looking at you, Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li!) while remaining true to the source material .  It just goes to show that the best production value in the world is no substitution for real athletic talents being demonstrated onscreen in full display without any BS.
Both hide in the depths of one's soul and are unrelenting powers that plague the heroes of the Tekken and Street fighter universes respectively. "Is the quest for power just when the cost is your own humanity?" When these two powers discover the existence of one another, it changes the fate of many warriors from both worlds.

When the renowned world warrior Ryu, (from Street Fighter lore) begins to struggle with the darkness inside (The "Satsui no hadou") it attracts the attention of a man who has come to fully accept his own darkness, Kazuya Mishima (Tekken series regular). With the Devil Gene howling inside Ryu's mind, Kazuya attacks, catching him off guard and taking advantage of his battle within. Who will win when these worlds collide?
