My Review on Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-li, 3 July 2009
Author: shadowheartz87 from United States

Now, before I had watched this, I read a lot of reviews about the movie. And For some reason the majority of the reviews were harshly negative! Now I just watched it today and to tell you the truth, I went in expecting it to be horrible. But as I watched it I became confused because I was waiting for it to suck big time! But through the whole movie I maintained interest! The movie had a plot and story that kept me hoping that Chun-Li will get her way. I kept wanted to know what would happen next. And I thought the fighting was pretty well done. They made sure to include some of Chun-Li's signature moves which I was excited about and to tell you the truth I thought Kristen Kreuk was a good pick for the part. If you pay attention you realize that in some ways she kinda looks like Chun-Li. Now I had read a review on IMDb saying "Kristen Kreuk managed to turn in the least sexy fighting heroine ever." But you see, I am glad they didn't try to make it all about how sexy Chun-Li is, but more about her and how she became such a great fighter. This movie isn't all about sex and flash. In fact there was only one kissing scene. it was all about Chun-Li! The title explains it! "The Legend of Chun-Li"! not "The Body of Chun-Li" Get a clue people! Now I will admit that I have been a big fan of the game Street fighter ever since i was a kid! When it was first on Nintendo AND I Ain't TALKING ABOUT SUPER NENTENDO! And yes Chun-li was always my fav! So maybe I am a little bias. But isn't that why they made a movie about the game? Because they were fans and wanted to make something for the fans? And of course they would hope to attract some people who may have not played the game before. But if you are going to watch the movie and make a negative review about it because they didn't make her into a sex goddess then maybe you should go find some anime porn! I am sure they have plenty of Street fighter Cartoon porn out there for the masses! I am happy that they made a new movie for the game, and I can't wait for the next one! RYU!!!! WOOT WOOT!
