Trivia

Crates throughout Bangkok's industrial area were labeled "Toei". That was the Japanese animation group of American action hits-such as G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero (1983). This can also refer to Capcom's rival, Nintendo distributor "Koei". See more »

If Bison was raised in Bangkok from infancy, he wouldn't have the Irish accent that seems to come and go. See more »

Not worth the time
27 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie was terrible to put it simply. I wasn't expecting it to be great, but I wasn't expecting it to be as bad as it was. It seemed that they took a really bad, wannabe Kung-Fu movie added some Street Fighter names and thought that would good enough to pass it off as a Street Fighter movie. Horrible, almost nonexistent plot, bad acting, and terrible fight scenes make this movie not worth the time it takes to watch it. At times it was funny though, but not intentionally. When certain characters try to be serious or they throw out some line they think would be good catch phrase you can't help but laugh at how poor the acting was.
