This movie obviously angered a bunch of "Street Fighter The Game" fans who all gave the movie a knee-jerk rating of 1. I won't speak to any of the SF mythology but as a stand alone movie "Chun-Li" is okay.
Is it awesome? No. But it's no where near a "1" just on production quality alone. The story is basic, but that's not why you watch this kind of movie. The stunts and fighting are pretty good. I like the Kristin Kreuk seemed to do most of her own stunts. If she didn't then that's another kudos to the film makers. The music is good, as are the set and costumes.
I also like to see Neal McDonough in pretty much anything he does. Moon Bloodgood was also nice to watch. I wasn't that crazy about Chris Klein or Robin Shou.
