Now i know when people see this movie they think oh well everywhere on the net people say how bad this is, ill pass and then tell everyone else it stinks too! Yeah dont be on that bandwagon. Just because people re-hash the same info doesnt mean its a bad movie (bad info mainly from younger viewers). This was the FIRST videogame Movie, everything paid for by Capcom, Their own Director and script. Can you honestly tell me if you were an actor and someone handed you a videogame movie script youd know what to do when they NEVER have been done before?? No. I didnt think so. Its actually really well made for what it brought to the table, considering great actors, performing in game moves, people that looked like the characters (could have done better on chun-li Ken ,ryu though just saying). A story that didnt stray from the Street fighter realm. All in all I give it an A for effort, the more you watch it the more you end up liking it as well.

Kevin Sorbo playing Hercules? nope a Barbarian, Not sure if it was trying to be the New Conan of its time but its a good movie non the less with Tia Carrere in it. Dont expect a Blockbuster feature though. Think of it as another Hercules made for tv movie but Barbarian style.
