Storyline

King of Chinatown takes an in-depth look at the culture of video games, an industry that has evolved into a worldwide, multi-billion dollar phenomenon. Filmmaker Calvin Theobald follows Justin Wong, a video-game prodigy sharpening his skills as he battles challengers in the cutthroat competitive world of Street Fighter IV. But as Justin fights his way through the ranks, he finds himself up against a formidable off-screen challenge -- his allegiance to The Empire, a video-gaming collective run by the charismatic and potentially destructive leader TriForce. Culminating in an epic battle at EVO, the largest video-gaming competition in the world, King of Chinatown shows us the entertaining on-the-ground trials of a Street Fighter IV sensation. Written by Psycho Crusher Productions

Street Fighter Bore
22 June 2012 | by (Phoenix Arizona) – See all my reviews

What if Mickey Goldmill had Aspergers, and was siphoning money from Rocky? What if Rocky was nothing but B-Roll from the inside of a Gamestop? This movie was like watching a message board flame war, only instead of flames, it was an electric blanket with Blanka on it barely keeping anyone warm, and or interested. The movie is supposed to be about Justin Wong, and his climbing the Street Fighter IV champion ladder, what it actually is about is a semi exploitive mutant named "Triforce" who tries to ride Justin's fame bus. The movie itself doesn't really follow any sort of narrative arc, and doesn't go into the details of the tournaments (which was surprising). The music was also very out of place and often grating. I am surprised I watched the whole thing, but I was also a little drunk which I think gave me the longevity needed to watch a fighting-game-pro-pimp with a power glove lose his 'best friend". I doubt fighting game enthusiasts will get anything but uncomfortable from watching this very stilted documentary.
