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
The cast's physical training was handled by Hollywood trainer and world karate champion Benny Urquidez. Charlie Picerni was hired as the stunt coordinator; he took the job on the condition that he would get ample time to train the cast. De Souza agreed, however there were problems because Urquidez had no experience with video game fighting, so it was found out midway through the shoot that different characters should have different fighting styles. More complications arose once it was learned that Raul Julia was suffering from cancer. Initially, plans were to shoot Julia's less intensive scenes first while the rest of the cast would rehearse with Picerni, however upon seeing Julia, de Souza realized that they could not show him in his current weakened state, and was forced to switch the filming around. This led to situations where the cast would be trained only moments before filming their scenes. For example, Byron Mann (Ryu) didn't hear of his knife fight with Vega until a few hours beforehand, so he asked a Thai stunt man to train him on the spot. The real fight was done with a real blade, so Mann could have been seriously injured if he had not performed his choreography correctly. See more »
When Zangief and E. Honda wrestle, the two fall through a hole in the ground. Instead of breaking through the ground (which was intended) the two clearly rip through a tarp. See more »

There is a dedication in the closing credits: "For Raul, Vaya Con Dios." See more »
The title sequence is different, depending whether you watch the International version (distributed by Columbia, the Street Fighter logo just appears after the Columbia lettering) or the US version (distributed by Universal, the Street Fighter logo appears over the Universal globe). See more »
Probably the worst movie ever based on a video game.
Movies based on video games are usually pretty bad, but few sink this low, and it's incredibly sad that this was Raul Julia's last film. The script is ludicrous and the acting mostly awful, though this may be because of some terrible miscasting. There are a few mildly funny moments, some of them intentional, but the martial arts scenes are unconvincing and not very exciting.
