Top Quality Movie With Some Exceptions, 8 August 2014
Author: Kerem Gogus from Turkey

Many reviewers wrote that this was the worst movie they've seen including, story and acting but I assume they never seen Twilight.

This is a top quality movie. And I'm writing this as a hardcore Street Fighter fan and Chun Li player almost for 20 years. I'm still playing with Chun Li and Cammy on Street Fighter X Tekken.

We - who know and play the game - expecting that the movie suppose to look like the game. They tried it before and it was horrible. Some reviewers mentioned from the costumes but do you really believe that those character always wearing those outfits? Those are their tournament outfits and outside of the tournament they might be people who wearing regular outfits as portrayed on this movie.

I'm glad they kept it that way because none of my friends are nerds like me who play Street Fighter over years and it would be very hard to explain them in cinema that why characters wearing clothes like that. They kept it elegant black.

One another thing about clothes; Vega's costume was very elegant. All black and silver mask with his silver claws. I was only expecting him to be a taller and super handsome Spanish guy. Other than that he really was like an assassin.

Some people said only Chun Li, Bison, Vega, Balrog are from the game but there was also Gen. The only thing that other reviewers I agreed about was the overdone cop scenes and characters.

Fighting scenes were very good except the Kikouken. That wasn't necessary, or it could be executed with a less trying-to-be-fancy way just maybe a white flash of a powerful hit. And her final hit to Bison could be much better.

Many reviewers pushing too far to Kristin Kreuk on her acting also. I'm not going to defend her because she don't need to be defended. Obviously she worked very hard for this movie. And she definitely gave her best. Everyone us must know that we don't have to be the best in the world, we just have to give our best to what we are doing. If you are a reading person, you can find this motto on many successful, happy and healthy people's biographies. She fought with greatness and elegance and portrait very well that how Chun Li became the Strongest Woman In The World that every men bow before her. The only thing I've missed is a bit more muscle mass. IF Miss Kreuk were built some bulky and ripped muscle mass for this movie, that would be truly awesome. Her soft, sweet and soothing voice telling the story during the movie was also beautiful.

I'm giving 10 stars to balance the extreme 1 star rates. It was a quality movie with a good and realistic story and execution. If you are fan of the game with friends who fan of the game and go see this movie you all dislike it. But if you are a fan of the game and have regular friends who has no idea what Street Fighter is (like me) - when you go together to this movie you never need to explain anything because it's down-to-earth and finely told story.

I watched it many times, tonight just watched it once again just to write this. And enjoyed it a lot once again... Now I can play some Street Fighter!
