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
Due to several set-backs, the production was already six days behind schedule on day 10 of the shoot in Thailand. Every time when the producers confronted him with delays, director Steven E. de Souza employed what he called 'the old John Ford trick' by tearing out a page from the script, to get back on track. However, during editing, he found out that several vital scenes were missing, and that the fight scene choreography lacked cohesion, so sets had to be re-built in Vancouver for re-shoots. See more »
When Chun Li told Guile she's been after Bison for 20 years, she must have started when she was 3 or 4. Chun Li looks to be no older than 24. See more »

When the credits end, there is a scene in which the computer gets alternative power from a solar cell and then induces the resurrection of General M. Bison. The General then 'initiates' the 'replay' of World domination. See more »
I have always been a huge fan of the Street Fighter series in video games. So when this movie came out I was really excited, of course I was way too young to appreciate a movie, but I can tell that back then I thought it was horrible.
A few years ago it was aired on TV and (I don't why) I saw it again. And I found it kind of funny. The story is all twisted if it gets compared with the video games story; I mean, in the video game, Ryu is the most important character and in the movie it is hardly seen. Cammy is a creation of Bison (in the video game), so she is part of the bad guys, while in the movie she is friend of Guile. A lot of intentional mistakes were made in order to transform what could be a good story into a useless-action-movie.
I hoped to see hadoukens and spinning kicks when I first saw the movie, but there is nothing of that. In other words, the movie sucks.
PS: Kylie Minogue, who played Cammy in the movie, declared later that she was completely sorry of shooting such a bad movie.
