Is this a joke? This money isn't even worth the paper it's printed on!
On the contrary. Every Bison dollar will be worth five British pounds. That is the exchange rate that the bank of England will implement after I kidnap their queen.

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.
