Storyline

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 Emphinix

a lot of fun. cheesy? yes. but fun, and that's what it was going for. vastly underrated.
30 November 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

As a Street Fighter fan I decided to try and defend this underrated movie. I enjoyed the live-action movie back in 1994 and it carries my general perspective of Street Fighter.

Many people complain about the movie straying from the game's plot, and all the characters were changed. This isn't necessarily true, the game's plot isn't that deep: you, as one of the Street Fighter characters, try to bust a drug lord and his minions. Even the game Is a little deeper than the Super Mario Bros. movie's plot (two plumbers trying to save the day), but try making a 90-minute movie out of it.

Same for the movie's views of the characters. Most of them are close enough to the game's characters. The movie did portray Guile, Bison, Chun-Li, Sagat, Ken, Ryu, Cammy, Zangief and Vega correctly (Guile and Chun-Li both still have personal vendettas against Bison, Ken and Ryu have their rivalries with Sagat and Vega, etc). I had no problems with E. Honda, and Blanka and Dhalsim only briefly appear (I personally prefer the 'Charlie mutated into Blanka' story). The only characterization problem the movie had was that a few characters just weren't shown right. Steven E. DeSouza should've just re-cast the actor playing T. Hawk. Plus, Balrog and DeeJay swapped alignments, but that's all. Most of the World Warriors and Grand Master characters ARE correctly depicted, just the New Challengers (exception being Cammy) just needed better casting.
