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,
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 producers from Japan advocated casting a Japanese actor in the role of Ryu, and had envisioned Kenya Sawada for the part. However, Sawada barely spoke any English, so the American producers pushed for the casting of Byron Mann on the basis that his humorous interaction with Damian Chapa (Ken) would be integral and dependent on the performer's fluency in English. As a compromise, Sawada was cast as a newly invented character, Captain Sawada, but according to Mann, Sawada took the rejection pretty bad, and didn't get along with him. See more »

I know you, you're Edmond Honda, the sumo from Hawaii. Almost made Yokozuna.
Until the Shadaloo Tong destroyed my reputation.
They did the same thing to me in my boxing career.

German theatrical release was cut by some seconds for violence (especially when Bison kills the AN-soldiers at the beginning and during the final fight at the end of the movie) to get a more profitable "not under 12"-rating. The video version is rated "not under 16" and is uncut. See more »
It's really dangerous to make a movie out of a video game, especially when the characters in the video game are cartoony. STREET FIGHTER is a terrible movie. The characters are a joke, and ACT like it's all a joke. The movie looks cheesy (study Bison's "hovering" command pod - it's obviously hooked to some kind of crane), and committing the famous Street Fighter martial arts movies into live action just looks stupid. What do you expect from DeSouza when the only things he directed before were a "Tales From The Crypt" episode and some shows of "Bowling For Dollars"? (No joke) Even the few Van Damme fans that are still left (after he's made countless bombs like this) will be embarrassed for their onscreen hero.
