User Reviews

Watch the animated movie instead.
12 June 2004 | by Unbreakable27See all my reviews

Being the fanatic of the video game series that I am, I was eager to see this movie when it first came out.

One word.


The movie does the video game on which it is based no justice whatsoever. If you want to see a good video game based film, watch Mortal Kombat instead.

And what the hell was up with those guys playing Ryu and Ken.

And Jewan-Claude Van-Dumb playing Guile? A Belgian playing an American. How dumb can you get!

And the script?

Someone actually got PAID to write that crap-ola.

Let me take a shot at it....while I'm not a professional screen writer, I certainly couldn't have done any worse than that.

Whoever did the casting for that film needs to go flip burgers if that's any example of how they do their other projects.

Maybe I'm being to critical here, but I expect the movie to at least remind me of the game. Nothing did.

Watch the animated version.
