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!"
Okay, all that said... I like this movie very much. No, I did not see it as a kid, I first saw it this year and I'm 26. No, it is not a GOOD movie at all, but I rate films based on entertainment value and this has it through the roof. Yeah, its a stupid cheese-fest but its a really FUN cheese-fest that's also fast moving, never boring, and has TONS of personality. Its kinda like if Megaforce had been made in the early 90's and actually gotten half of the one-liners right for a change.
This was Raul Julia's final film, and its sad to see an honestly great actor die fairly young like he did. That said, those who feel his role as Bison was sad and beneath his dignity should pay more attention to his performance in this movie. He clearly is having an absolute blast as Gen. Bison, hamming it up in a truly delicious way. Every time he's on screen its a hilarious treat and probably the best bad guy overacting I've seen since Michael Gough's performance in Konga.Read more ›
Street Fighter: The Movie came out in 1994, a year after the release of Super Mario Brothers. Let's just be upfront in saying it's no where near being an Oscar worthy movie. It's probably not even really "good", at that. It's a somewhat cheesy or campy movie (but not as much as SMB and no where near as much as Double Dragon). But I've always really enjoyed the movie.
So what is the plot of the movie? This is one place I think it hurt itself with a lot of Street Fighter fans. As was once said, for a movie called Street Fighter....there's a glaring lack of street fighting, much less a tournament. I could have easily seen the movie be your standard martial arts film in that sense had they made it a bit more like the games. However, in the movie, Bison is as he is in the games: a power mad dictator out for world domination. Opposing him is the Allied Nations with Guile commanding the army. And that's basically the plot. Bison has taken a large group of people hostage and has given the world 72 hours to hand him $20 billion in ransom while the main characters set out to stop him and rescue the hostages (though they don't all come together until towards the end of the movie).
Many of the major characters from the games out at the time are in the movie as well.Read more ›
The story: when the mad warlord General M. Bison (Raul Julia, The Addams Family) is poised to overrun the earth in pursuit of his own personal empire, it will be up to a multi-faceted group of fighters - including Colonel William Guile (Van Damme, Timecop), reporter Chun-Li (Ming Na, Final Fantasy - The Spirits Within), and conmen Ryu Hoshi (Byron Mann, Crying Freeman) and Ken Masters (Damian Chapa) - to stop him.
This film is definitely over-cast, comparable to Mortal Kombat: Annihilation in terms of saturation.Read more ›
