Bison is the child of Irish missionaries. The actors portraying him as a teenager and adult are appropriate, but when he is gravely ill in the orphanage, the camera zooms on an apparently Asian baby. See more »

How can a movie that runs for a hour and a half feel so long? Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li (2009) is a horrible, unimaginative, cheesy and just plain stupid movie. The dialog made me laugh at the movie, not with the movie – the actors didn't pull through with the cheesy material. The acting is agonizing along with the script that makes very little sense if any, even the action is dull.
The whole movie is just one big pile of rotten cheesy clichés sewn together without any idea of what is being made. The first Street Fighter movie (1994) at least made me smile once here and there with it's "camp" -attitude, Legend of Chun-Li tries too hard to be a seriously taken "growing-up" drama that the fail is twice as bad that it could've been. I felt ashamed even just watching the movie, must've been tough to be actually a part of it. Well, at least they all got paid.
I really don't have anything positive to say about the film. 1/4
