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
While Guile and Chun-Li wear their trademark costumes by the film's climax, they are actually different colors from the original Street Fighter II: The World Warrior variations. In the film, Guile is wearing his blue tank top/camouflage pants, which is based on his Street Fighter II Turbo variation. Chun-Li is wearing her red lady dragon dress, which is based on her Street Fighter II: Champion(ship) Edition variation. See more »
When Ryu is looking around in Bison's fortress, Vega cuts at Ryu with his claw and makes three bloody scratches on the left side of his stomach. However, the blood doesn't drip from the cuts on Ryu's stomach and there is no blood is on Vega's claws after the cut. See more »
I know you, you're Edmond Honda, the sumo from Hawaii. Almost made Yokozuna.
Until the Shadaloo Tong destroyed my reputation.
They did the same thing to me in my boxing career.

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.
