Im giving it a 10 just to try and balance out all of the awful reviews.
Costumes are not the same as in the game??? (well that worked for the x-men films, wolverine, yellow spandex anyone,and didn't work in the slightestfor the Van Damme version of street fighter, yeah the costumes were true to the game but in real life they are so very wrong) The costumes in the game are slightly ridiculous so to make any attempt of making this a serious film they had to change that.
Bison is wearing a suit, and has a beard (yes cos most druglords wear military outfit despite not actually being in the military, I see why people would care about that???) Some bad wire work, but lets be honest no worse than in a lot of Chinese films and how else were they gonna recreate moves from the game which are ridiculously over the top in the first place. I thought it was a good effort at bringing those into the film. As for the rest of the action their were some pretty damn good strikes and locks as well really impressive flips, rolls and break falling especially when you consider the main character is from smallville, I was really surprised.
Im surprised at how seriously people criticised this film as well as overacting, I have seen so much worse and at least someone is making street fighter movies. Oh and Chris Klein was in American Pie, so what, also shocked at how many people said this was trash compared with the Van Damme film, I don't think their is one decent martial arts technique in that film, Van Damme did none of the good stuff you see in his older films,the costumes were camp, most of the cast were rubbish in their roles, nothing about that film was good...
