Private Luc Deveraux and his sadistic sergeant, Andrew Scott, got killed in Vietnam. The army uses their bodies for a secret project - reanimating dead soldiers as deadly obedient cyborgs. However, their memories come back too.
Jean-Claude Van Damme,
When a teenager, Chun-Li witnesses the kidnapping of her father by wealthy crime lord M. Bison. When she grows up, she goes into a quest for vengeance and becomes the famous crime-fighter of the Street Fighter universe.
Michael Clarke Duncan
Col. William Guile leads an army of soldiers into the country of Shadaloo to find traces to lead him to General M. Bison, who has captured many people including three missing soldiers. Among them is Carlos "Charlie" Blanka, in which Bison decides to turn into a hideous mutant. On the other hand, Chun Li is a reporter who seeks revenge against Bison for the death of her father years ago. Then two small time hustlers Ryu and Ken, are arrested along with Sagat, a powerful arms dealer and Vega for dealing of illegal weapons. Guile recruits them in order to find Bison's base. Now Guile, T. Hawk, Cammy, Ryu, Ken, Chun Li, Balrog and E. Honda have three days before Bison murders the hostages and takes over the world.Written by
Capcom was co-financier of the film, so every aspect of production required their approval. Among other things, they mandated a December 1994 release date, which required the cast and crew to maintain an aggressive filming schedule. Capcom had long envisioned Jean-Claude Van Damme as Guile and asked him to be cast. Van Damme's fee took nearly $8 million of the film's $35 million budget. After Raul Julia was cast as Bison, most of the casting budget had been spent. The majority of other parts had to go to little-known or unknown actors. See more »

before i start let me say, i like all kinds of movies, and i like my fair share of crap. but this film is just awful, i don't mean funny-awful, like Troma or Roger Corman, i just mean amateur-ish and weak, there is not one element to redeem it, not the casting(laughable) the set design(clichéd) the costumes (home-made?) the action sequences(slow, ponderous and poorly executed). if they wanted to rape and exploit the franchise in an engaging way then they should have given it to Corman, then at least we could have had a laugh. this director clearly has no interest or knowledge of the subject. they could have taken the opportunity to go all the way and make something monumentally baaaaad, but unfortunately the director lacked the skill for such lofty aspirations and were stuck with this tame, lame studio turd that won't engage anyone over the age of twelve.
if you have attention deficit disorder,thought Sylvester Stallones Driven was much better than Grand Prix(1966) or have never seen a motion picture before in your life and have a pre-occupation with Kylie Minogues rear end, then you MIGHT, just might be able to make it to the end of this stink bomb. Having said all this if you've gone as far as reading this your probably gonna watch it anyway, but take my word for it, your time would be more productively spent masturbating
