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

In the scene where Ryu and Ken are confronted by Chun-Li, Balrog and E. Honda; Chun-Li pulls a knife on Ryu. In the ensuing commotion the knife brushes Ryu's arm and it bends, clearly showing that it is a prop knife. See more »
As you were, Colonel.
What a surprise. Welcome to the Shadaloo front. You're just in time for the kickoff.
I'm afraid not, Colonel. The Security Council has just voted. They've decided to negotiate.
We think we can deal with General Bison. You're instructed to call off the assault. Contact him. Request an extension of his deadline. We are prepared to pay the ransom demand.
Twenty billion dollars? What will prevent him from taking more hostages next month and ...

The UK cinema version was cut by 27 secs and the video lost a further 14 secs with edits made to neck breaks, throat punches and the fight between Vega & Ryu to secure a '12' rating. The 2004 DVD features the same cut print. See more »
This movie is TERRIBLE. Van Damme give his worst performance. "Who wants to go home and who wants to go with me"? This movie is as entertaining as a 9 volt battery. This one is not worth it. This movie will probably be way cool if your a 6 or 7 year old. Too bad Raul Julias last movie had to suck so badly. They can't even say Ryu's name right for crying out loud. Street Fighter is about Ryu and Ken not Guile. Raul Julia did do a good job playing Bison though. That was the only part of this suck-fest worthwhile. This movie is totally opposite from the game except for the part about Bison trying to take over the world. This movie is a JOKE. So are the fight sequences. Never watch this movie.
