  Oh Lord, who allowed this movie to happen?!

I must admit, I did read the reveiws prior to buying this film, i justified it as being one of those guilty pleasures and it surely couldnt be as bad as everyone was making out, could it? Turns out everyone was right, no plot, awful acting, lame fight scenes and worse yet, the normally wonderful Miss Kreuk couldnt even balance out the damn right painful narration and awful, just plain awful cohesion of plot and time line, yet I still would of bought it all over again just to wonder If the film was as bad as everyone was making out!! Not as bad or painful as the original, but where it had charm due to its shear rubbishness, the second taking tries to take itself far to serious.

Although the film is really aimed at teenage boys, it is watchable but the plot is a bit thin. What I really liked is recalling all the characters, Vega, M Bison... but no E Honda which is a bit disappointing.

Street-fighter fans everywhere were let down by this movie. For a film entitled Street-Fighter, there's hardly any fighting at all, and the character work is atrocious.

But is this the worst film ever made? Hardly. It's by far the best, or in anyway average, but I dig Chun-Li, and she's portrayed solidly enough to hold your attention (mostly down to Miss Kreuk). As for the rest of the film, it dives from laugh worthy to cringe worthy, sometimes within the same scene. Bison grew up in China, right, but has an Irish accent!!

I would have forgiven all if its mishaps had they got one thing right: Chun-Li VS Vega. If you're a fan of the franchise, I'm sure you're aware of the animated film and the fight that became almost the staple of the franchise between Vega and Chun-Li. It's a mind blowing couple of minutes, with more action, development, humour and violence than this film in its entirety.

But no. In fact, their worst crime of all IS the fight between both legendary fighters. It's woeful, woeful stuff. It's about 10 seconds long. And the dialogue is truly inspired, he said sardonically. 'I will cut you' - yes, that's his final line. Genius, right?

Overall, it's bargain basement stuff. It would be Mr. Guilty Pleasure's guilty pleasure. If you have not seen the animated film, I seriously recommend it for a great action adventure.

  You have to fight to stay awake

How anyone can give this more than one star is beyond me, to say it's supposed to be based on the game there are very few characters that you will recognise. As a film it can't even be classified as "it's so bad its good" like its Van Damme predecessor it's just bad. Once again it's a film based on a game that doesn't live up to its source material, to be honest mortal combat 2 was better than this and that was awful.

This movie shouldnt have been made, the story was dire, the action pointless, infact the movie was pointless, who the hell o.k'd this for production needs to be sent to the dole que, its an absolute $%^Pfest, from start to near the end.(couldnt force myself to watch any more ) avoid this movie like a tramp on a night bus, i am writing the the studio, they owe me an hour of my life back.

  "..SHOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH BETTER.."

| | See all sdx800's reviews (1725)

As a big street fighter fan I was looking forward to this film, the new video game was awesome and lived up to everything the fans wanted! so i was hoping the film would too, but its no where near as good as the game, its a good film dont get me wrong, but dosnt hit the spot for fans, the action is limited, the use of characters is limited and the story is average, you could look at this as the start of a series of films though, which hopefully will get better. Kristin Kreuk was nice as chun-li and displayed one use of powers a single fireball at the end of the film. Bison was a good character, but never really displayed much power, vega was the most disapointing character he wasnt used alot and the mask was no where near even as good as the one in the original SF movie with van damme in it. overall its not a bad movie, bit of popcorn fun for the average movie watcher but dont expect much if your a hardcore fan, could have been alot lot better.

  terrible, terrible, film that makes the original look good

| | See all Gaggy6's reviews (6)

usually i can find good points/aspects about any film, but this film made me want to get an hour and a half of my life refunded. its really bad from the story (apparently bison is irish and has a secret daughter) and acting... Chris Klien is awful!!!! the best thing about this movie is the end credits.
