[3.50/10] Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li (2009)

So one would think that this movie would be more accurate to the video games and Anime movies since Capcom had direct hands in this. Nope! This is even worse than the 1994 original "Street Fighter" movie. But unlike that one, this one isn't fun. This one isn't laughably bad. It's just bad. Kristen Kruek does her best for what she's given but the others are so flat-out bland that at times I found myself laughing and shaking my head in utter disbelief. We never get a chance to get to know the characters from the inside out or marvel at the fight scenes due to the consistent add-riddled editing and uneven pacing which, ironically, plagued the first film as well. Neal McDonough is the only one who's credible as bad boy Bison even more so than the late Raul Julia. There are many inconsistencies with some of the characters; namely Gen, whose supposed to be something like Kung-Fu master rather than a young man. Balrog and Vega, on the other hand are just extras to be kicked around when the film calls for them to do so.The script is downright horrible! Right from the get-go, you are amazed at the flat, base dialog that would only impress those who had just discovered the joys of reading - the speech is flat, stilted, and poorly acted by all in the cast. All in all, "Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li" is a horrible, unimaginative, cheesy and just plain stupid movie.

  • My Rating: 3.50/10
  • Rotten Tomatoes: 04% (2.4/10)
  • IMDb: 3.9/10
