Trivia

Most of the back story setting up the alliance between Chun-Li and Nash can be found in the deleted scenes on the DVD. See more »

Goofs

Bison is the child of Irish missionaries. The actors portraying him as a teenager and adult are appropriate, but when he is gravely ill in the orphanage, the camera zooms on an apparently Asian baby. See more »

This movie is the worst movie I have ever seen
1 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't even know where to start. For anyone who knows anything about Street Fighter, set yourself up for disappointment because the movie has absolutely nothing to do with the game. There are little to zero special effects and the ones that are in the movie do not revolve around the fighters special powers. Let's talk about the characters....I realize the movie is suppose to be about Chun-Li, but that does not mean exclude every other character in the game. The ONLY characters are Chun-Li, Balrog, Bison, and Vega. None of the characters have the same power or skill that they display in the game. There are also a lot of over played scenes by useless characters such as Chris Klein's Interpol character and the other Asian chick that also has no purpose. They only serve as pawns in making the movie more irritating. If there was ever a punishment you wanted to dish out to anyone or revenge you wanted to take upon somebody, just have them watch this movie.
