Movie Reviews

Obviously flawed but nostalgic fun
Ethan M. Sterk | Fallbrook, CA U.S.A. | 01/18/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Okay, I don't think anyone can reasonably argue that this movie is good; at least, not in any conventional sense. The acting, except for perhaps Raul Julia, is sub-par at best, the story is ridiculous, and even the fight scenes aren't very well-executed (pretty bad for a film with the title Street Fighter, huh).

So why am I giving this 5 stars? Well, for starters, I was all of 8 years old when the film came out, and deeply in love with video games, especially Street Fighter II, which this film is (loosely) based on. I also liked Jean-Claude Van Damme for some bizarre reason-Bloodsport, Hard Target, Timecop-to me, he could do no wrong. Which made this film a perfect storm of sorts. Being older and wiser, I can easily spot the many flaws in this film, but the over-the-top, cheesy dialogue, stunts, and story are what keep me loving this movie. I don't think it's good anymore, like when I did when I was eight, but now I realize it's in that rare so-terrible-it's-actually-highly-entertaining category. Just don't expect much and watch it more for laughs than a serious story (it's based on a video game for crying out loud) and you'll get a kick out of it.

I mean, how could you not love a movie that has one of the characters, watching a surveillance camera revealing a bomb-laden truck about to crash into the building he's in, exclaim, "Quick! Somebody change the channel!""
USA Networks Version

"Okay so many of you probably have never seen this series. The quality of the DVD is great. But of course, this is the series that was on USA Networks on cable. Do not get this series mixed up with the Japanese version of Street Fighter. There are major differences. The first one is storyline is based on the horrid Van Damn movie of Street Fighter. Which means that the Street Fighters are police under cover to save the universe. Second difference is Guile is the main character not Ryu!I would consider this for my collection regardless. ADV Films bought the rights to this movie attempting to capture the Robotech, Transformers generation. They did a great job of marketing it to them. I ended up buying this DVD. It's not the best anime nor is it even Japanese, but I had to get it since I watched it growing up as a kid.15 episodes for $...? I figured its cheap enough to watch."
Oh boy...

"Where do I even begin with this disaster? Back in the early 90's just about everybody knew what Street Fighter was, and it's no surprise that it was made into a movie. This movie had high expectations, and what a total bomb it turned out to be. Now, if we are talking money-wise here, this movie was a complete success. However, I don't know why because it seems like just about everything that could have gone wrong... did. The biggest flaw of the movie (other than the movie itself) is without a doubt the characters. Nothing against Van Damme, I actually like a lot of his movies, but not for even one second did he convince anybody that he was an American soldier. Charlie and Blanka are not the same person (the movie decided to combine them together, making him "Carlos Blanka"). After eleven years, I'm still trying to figure out what they were thinking on that one. E. Honda is supposed to be Japanese and not Hawaiian. Balrog joins Honda and Chun Li as part of a news team. Still reading? It gets funnier. Dhalsim was turned into a scientist. Ryu and Ken are hustlers (whatever happened to honor?) Zangief provided comic relief during the movie (who can ever forget "Quick! Change the channel!" and "You got paid?") And whatever you have heard, Captain Sawada is not Fei Long. The one role they got right was Bison. Julia was perfect for this role. Unfortunately, we all lost a very good actor as he died shortly after this film was made.

The fighting scenes are a complete joke. The Honda/Zangief fight was basically them grappling each other and then falling through the floor. Bison's attacks are supposed to be quick, not flying at 2 MPH and having Guile just stand there waiting for Bison to hit him. I really wish I could have included some good points in this movie, but I simply can't. However, for this price, I actually would recommend that you check it out, because if you're like me, you'll have a couple of good laughs during this movie. Not because it was funny, but because at how unbelievably bad it truly was.
Writers? what writers?

"I watched this movie with the directors commentary and it is obvious that the director had no clue what Street Fighter is and it's clear that he never studied up on it. He admits that he wrote the script to the entire movie in less than a half an hour. If you listen to him he mispronounces half of the characters names. This director should have been the star of the movie "Clueless." I mean, Blanka is Guile's friend Charlie? Carlos Blanka??? Give me a break! I hope a BETTER director picks up Street Fighter because if it's done RIGHT it would make for a great movie."
