4.0 out of 5 stars Classic 14 Aug 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is such a classic film. It is funny and fairly light hearted and takes your memory for a walk down memory lane. Don't expect the latest special effects or cgi's as some people do even though it is an old film but this makes it an excellent film, no flashy displays and showing off of technology.
It is just pure, simple and fun.

By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Dating from 1994, this is a second tier actioner starring the muscles from Brussels, Jean Claude Van Damme. Based on the popular video game, it follows Van Damme as he heads up a multinational force trying to bring down international terrorist General Bison, played with a manic gless by Raul Julia. The film suffers from too many characters and too little screen time for Van Damme, and when he is on screen his fights aren't particularly interesting. It's a bit confused as it tries to get screen time for all the characters, and you feel a bit shortchanged as Van Damme gets star billing but doesn't really get into action until the final reel. Raul Julia however is excellent, as the evil General Bison, in a performance worthy of a much better film.

There are some nice stylistic touches with various poses to resemble the video game, and some fights being seen on screens as they would in game play, and there is a great performance from Julia that largely carries the film. It passes an hour and a half, but it's not great. 3 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Old Skool but Still Good 19 April 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This movie is a classic game to movie conversion - back at a time when they used to be almost guaranteed flops.

However, if you were a fan of the game, in any format, then this will hit the button. If you missed out, prepare to take a step back in time to a campy, costumed world of Streetfighter.

The characters are pretty honest to the game mythos, a few outfit changes, mainly to Cammy, played by Kylie. The actress Ming Na-Wen as Chun-Li is a stand out. She is actually a superb actress, not stretched in this role of course but she certainly does the job.

The story is largely irrelevant. We have a cruel mastermind, a wronged Chinese girl, a do-gooding UN and a couple of cool fighters - stick this is the blender with some excellent locations and set and you get the idea...

The rest of the gang are there in some funky and colourful costumes. What I liked about this movie is that the violence and fighting is clearly comic book stuff. The sets are bright and the whole thing is a camp fantasy.

Sit back and enjoy it. Don't judge it too harshly and don't over-think what plot there is. Enjoy the villains and the heroes in this quirky piece of kitsch which I think has developed some form of cult following - or maybe that's just me!

4.0 out of 5 stars Just don't take it too seriously 15 Oct 2012
Format:DVD
Streetfighter 2 - the arcade so popular, it reinvented one-on-one beat-`em-ups. It was only natural that Hollywood was going to try and cash in on it. However, as Mario Bros found out, making a movie out of a (pretty plotless) video game is no easy task.

First of all, let me say that Streetfighter the Movie is rubbish. Secondly, let me say that I loved it.

There was no story to the arcade, so the film's writers were always going to have to take a hell of a load of creative licenses to try and gel it all together in some form of narrative format (after all, how much story can you get into sixteen people from around the world knocking the hell out of each other?). And, I think they did a pretty good job - at least with the story anyway. It follows - mainly - the film's biggest star Jean Claude Van Damme, As Colonel Guile, who leads an A.N. (that's `Allied Nations' - think United Nations, but with a different name) task force of soldiers against the warlord dictator of (made-up country) Shadaloo, namely M. Bison. The `Mussels From Brussels' is joined (and hindered) by almost all the other main Streetfighters (not that any fighting is ever done in any street, but never mind...).

Unfortunately, what the film does well in coming up with a coherent and (nearly) believable story, it lacks in what fans want to see. Sadly, none of the actors are particularly good. There are too many characters and none of them are given enough screen time to particularly develop their characters. Plus many of them don't really look much like their on-screen counterparts. Not only that, but their computer-generated incarnations are also better at delivering their lines. The actors' dialogue is pretty clunky and cringeworthy.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's an enjoyable movie 14 Aug 2014
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I never liked this movie when I first saw it back in mid 90's as a kid, but as an adult this movie has grown on me. Yeah I know it's nothing like the game, I mean Balrog on team good? and Guile the main star not Ryu??. The movie is enjoyable and alot of funny lines from M.Bison like what he says to Sagat " I guess you didn't see that did you" lolololol and after he killed a marine he says to the marine that's next " Yes, your turn now" classic!!! It's great seeing Kyle Minogue and the babe who plays Chun Li, nice eye candy. Without them, this movie wouldn't be so good.
