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

Trivia

Funnily enough, several of the alignments of the characters are reversed: Blanka is half good and half evil, as opposed to good in the games. Here, Balrog is good instead of evil, same with Dee Jay, only reverse. See more »

Quite Fun
2 December 2005 | by See all my reviews

Though Street Fighter is not exactly Oscar-material it does have a lot going for it. The movie is quite hilarious and I'm surprised at how many great actors they managed to cast (no, I'm not talking about Van Damme). Even in her minimal exposure character as Cammy, Kylie Minogue could act pretty convincingly. Damien Chappa and Byron Mann were a very sympathetic pair as Ruy and Ken. Ming Na gave an appropriately tense performance as Chun Li. Wes Studi may be a tad out of shape, but he gives Sagat's character unbelievable coolness. Also, I can't lie, Miguel Nunez Jr. (DeeJay) and Andrew Bryniarski (Zangief) were a blast.

This movie is quite funny even if parts of it were kinda cheap. If you're a hard-core fan of the games I do not recommend it, but anyone who doesn't take the games too seriously or isn't bothered by Van Damme too much will at least get a good laugh from watching this, if nothing else.
