Jean-Claude Van Damme,
Col. William Guile leads an army of soldiers into the country of Shadaloo to find traces to lead him to General M. Bison, who has captured many people including three missing soldiers. Among them is Carlos "Charlie" Blanka, in which Bison decides to turn into a hideous mutant. On the other hand, Chun Li is a reporter who seeks revenge against Bison for the death of her father years ago. Then two small time hustlers Ryu and Ken, are arrested along with Sagat, a powerful arms dealer and Vega for dealing of illegal weapons. Guile recruits them in order to find Bison's base. Now Guile, T. Hawk, Cammy, Ryu, Ken, Chun Li, Balrog and E. Honda have three days before Bison murders the hostages and takes over the world. Written by
In the "Magic trick" scene where Chun Li is put in a barrel and then made to disappear, you can see the word 'Capcom' is printed in yellow on top of the orange barrel lid. Capcom is the team behind the Street Fighter video games See more »
When Ken kicks Victor Sagat back and knocks him against a stone pillar, the pillar visibly wobbles when Sagat bounces off of it. See more »
As a huge fan of the video game that is the basis for this movie, I felt compelled to watch it even though I have never been much of a Van Damme fan. To my surprise, I found this film to be a lot of fun. By action movie standards, the silly one-liners work pretty well, and it was fun to see the video game characters come to life, even if they did make a few changes to the basic plot of the game. All things considered, I'm glad I took the time to watch "Street Fighter". It's nothing memorable, but if you're in the mood to watch some silly action fluff, then I'd say that it's time well wasted.
