Editorial Reviews

Despite remaining the subject of intense debate by fans of the Capcom video game on which it’s based, the Jean-Claude Van Damme punch-em-up Street Fighter returns to DVD with an array of supplemental features, many of which may seem very familiar to anyone who’s owned previous DVD releases of this title. The film itself, directed by screenwriter Steven (Die Hard) de Souza, remains an amusing camp exercise, buoyed largely by the presence of Raul Julia in his final film role as mad dictator General Bison, who holds a trio of soldiers for ransom. Coming to the rescue is a bleached-blond Van Damme and a team of fighters, including Chun-Li (Ming-Na), Sagat (Wes Studi), Cammy (Kylie Minogue) and other characters from the Street Fighter rogues’ gallery. De Souza’s decision to weave humor into the storyline hobbles the impact of the fight scenes, which are largely relegated to the final third of the film, and budgetary restraints render some characters--most notably Robert Mammone’s Blanka--as laughable caricatures. The result is probably appalling for Street Fighter die-hards, though most audiences seem to regard it as a camp hoot. That status may account for this Extreme Edition, although the tie-in factor with the 2009 theatrical release Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li should be taken into consideration as well. Those who own the 1999 Collector’s Edition DVD of this title will already have most of the extras featured here, including commentary by de Souza, a making-of featurette, outtakes, deleted scenes, storyboard and video game sequences (the latter featuring likenesses of Van Damme and Julia) and a barrage of promotional images. The only features that are new to the Extreme Edition are the sharp anamorphic transfer, which is a vast improvement over the previous release, and a trio of trailers for the Street Fighter IV game and Street Fighter IV feature-length anime. --Paul Gaita

5.0 out of 5 stars Obviously flawed but nostalgic fun January 17, 2009
Format:Blu-ray
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!"

Whenever I think of video game movies, I always think of only three movies: Super Mario Brothers, Street Fighter, and Double Dragon. Perhaps because these were the first three made or perhaps because I loved all three as a kid. Either way, of those three, it's Street Fighter I seem to always think of the most as far as these kind of movies go.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly entertaining... June 18, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For those complaining that its not "faithful to the source material" please stop. It was a video game movie made in the early to mid 90's. It stars Jean Claude Van Damme. It was also based on a video game that had NO depth of character or plot. All you had from the game to write a movie off of was the way the characters looked and one or two sentences from each of them when they won a fight. I think its pretty reasonable they took some liberties. You want a "faithful" SF movie go buy those anime movies they made after this one.

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars "Quick! Change the channel!" October 31, 2011
Format:DVD
The biggest distinction that "Street Fighter: the Movie" holds for me is that it's the first Van Damme picture I ever saw. On a global scale, it was the first video game-film adaptation to turn a buck, which should count for something despite the routine bashing it receives for how shoddily it portrayed the most popular fighting game of the time on the big screen. I was personally never a huge "Street Fighter" fan, but while I can certainly spot the plotline unfaithfulness, I can't help but notice just how fun the movie is. It's a poor adaptation and a questionable action movie, but nevertheless a decent teenaged adventure when taken at face value.

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.
