Ign's early review of Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li Movie Review.
but what surprise me is that these critics said it was worst than the first Street Fighter Movie!!! The first one!!! How could that happen in this day and ago of technology?
wow! the bar was set pretty low with the previous SF movie. This one beat it to be even worse.... that is a feat in itself!!!
Easy you make a movie that got even less to do with Street Fighter than the first horrid one . At least the first "tried" , albeit in a way closer to unvolontary parody than anything else .
I truly did want this to be a good movie, even after the dreadful commercials. They said Kirsten did a good job as Chun-Li, and that's the only good thing about the movie. It's a complete shame, and the people at Capcom and the producer should have stopped this atrocity once they saw how bad and cheesy it was turning out to be.
HAHAHAHA, at least the new game is great.
What a shame. Who's the director of this movie? Let me know so that I can shake my fist vigorously at him.
Andrzej Bartkowiak he directed Speed and that horrible game movie Doom. Speed was his only good movie, just go look on rottentomatoes.com. Man I was going to see this tomorrow but I think I will change my mind after watching Doom I don't trust this.
How does he go from directing Speed which is one of the most thrilling movies of that time, to Doom? Sometimes it really sucks how time can change people.
"Speed" was directed by Jan de Bont, who also directed "Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life". Andrzej Bartkowiak was only the director of photography in "Speed" but he did direct the "Doom" movie as well as "Romeo Must Die". Not that these facts change anything. Both of them haven't done anything right since "Speed".
Since your the information minister of Iraq, shouldnt you be claiming that the street fighter movie does not suck, and is setting new records at the box office ? :)
both speed and speed 2 were directed by Jan de [email protected]!
Adrzej was the cinematographer for Speed
Thank God for imdb.
Don't even be thinking to watch this movie
They REALLY did not like the film. Colour me surprised!
Since the director of this movie is the same as the one from Doom, its no suprise to me that this movie sucks. The guy makes high budget Uwe Bol movies.
Let me check...um yeah i still don't care about this movie. Ouch a 1.5
I was actually considering to take my girl friends son to see this last night after seeing the commercial. I'm not sure what to watch now because this movie won't see on e of my dollars.
Theres: Paul Blart Hotel for Dogs The Velveteen Rabbit I've also heard that Taken was pretty good
Ok thanks...I will look these up later.
Well I guess this is going next to "Why did they did this as a live action movie!" Street Fighter, Super Mario Bros,Double Dragon, even DOA. You would think with so much story in these examples they can make a good movie. Well take off Super Mario Bros what was they Thinking???
Exactly... Despite it's terribleness... ...Super Mario Bros. was freakin' awesome!
awesome movie, I will watch it when I am contemplating suicide. edit: oops meant to post it in the open zone.
At least they got some of the character looks right in the first film. This just looks god-awful. M. Bison as a suit-wearing Irish guy?!?! That's just a f*cking travesty. *sigh* Thanks Bartkowiak, for doing a Street Fighter film even Uwe Boll could laugh at...because I really think he couldn't have done any worse.
NOBODY makes worse movies than Uwe Boll, NOBODY! He ruins franchises so nobody will ever bother to make a GOOD movie of the names he destroys. This movie looked crap from the commercial.
should leave street fighter alone both of them flopped at the cinemas i might go and watch it if it comes to cinemas here biut if not straight to dvd port then i guess its worth a rent over night
Is this really a surprise, come on.
No where near the awesomeness of the Steven E. DeSousa original. And I seriously mean that. Bison: "You still refuse to accept my GODHOOD?!Keep your own God. In fact, this might be a good time to pray to him. For I beheld Satan as HE FELL FROM HEAVEN! LIKE LIGHTNING!!!!!" Man that movie kicked ass
I agree. Van Damme was so freakin' cool in it too! I just wish Dhalsim had been used more.
What the F$#!!?!? How can anyone possibly screw this up as bad as the first street fighter?! How??? Hoooooow!?!?! For the love of the street fighter franchise, please watch the street fighter japanese animated movie along with street fighter 2V series before EVER making another version!!! Please, get the directors of the matrix(Wachowski bros.), Peter Jackson(Lord of the rings), Michael Bay(Transformers), Quintan Tarentino(Kill bill) or someone from Japan(Azumi-sooo sick!) to direct the damn thing!!! ....Now I'm getting worried for the dragonball movie....
then Dragonball the movie should be guaranteed a 0.5 mwahahaha epic failures
Bad acting, Bad Fight scenes, horrible casting in every role, lack of characters from the game, little to no care from Hollywood about the IP. It was easy to see far in advance that this would suck. I can help Hollywood make a street fighter movie that doesn't suck. Make a scene for scene remake of the Street Fighter II anime movie and cast the right people to play the roles and BAM you will have a smash hit on your hands. But Hollywood is retarded so we will never see that happen.
I thought he learned something from Doom movie..Well hes now the official Uwe Boll-2
That score is so low, you think it was a Xbox 360 game, not a movie
I actually will see it when it will release in France, but only to see how much they failed and laugh as much as i laughed for the first Street Fighter movie.
...this IS one review, and not too many people know IGN for reviewing movies. I'd wait to see what some other people that are more about rating movies say about it before rendering the verdict, just to be on the safe side (you never know, this could end up being what Edge's Killzone 2 review was). But you know, I'd see it just for Kristen Kreuk. I'd tap that ass in a SECOND!
i.e DVD(xBox 360) Vs Blu-ray(PS3)!!! ;-D
i hope dragonball the movie will get a better score lol
FIRED UP! PAUL BLART CORALINE in 3D CONFESSIONS OF A SHOP-A-HOLIC Fired Up was the best though. It was like forbidden love child of "American Pie" & "Bring It On". Loved it.
Another glorious addition to the "Why video games should never be made into movies" list. A Street Fighter film needs to follow the Bloodsport/Kickboxer formula (both JC Van Damme movies incidentally). Keep the plot light and the action brutal. Paging Zack Snyder!
I'll rent it when it comes out on blu-ray.
Yeah, bonesmccoy, I'm thinking the movie taking place during the Street Fighter Tournament is the way to go. About the review, I'm not surprised KK was the best actor in the film. Or at least the least objectionable. When KK isn't playing Lana Lang she can be a good actress. Still, worse than the JCVD Street Fighter movie? Whoa. Like, whoa. My favorite line in the JCVD version: Quick! Change the channel!--Zangief
"The day Bison graced your village was the greatest day of your life! For me it was Tues-Day"
Just...why? Isnt there better ideas out there to throw money at? Or at least use a game that was actually known for its story. I still have never seen the animated movies, which look pretty good, and they just put them up on LIVE. Here's MY SF movie, if it must be made: IF they are just determined to make a SF movie, why not make it centering around Ryu? You make Ryu the main charcter, with Ken as his friend/rival that ends up helping him after years of them being separated. Guile is in there somewhere flying a jet, and the main antagonist is Sagat, who is still pissed about that scar on his chest. You open the movie with Ryu dragon punching Sagat (who is a thug, but has morals), and it shows him being nearly killed, because his punch literally rips his chest open. Ryu is young and arrogant and doesnt care about Sagat's well-being and leaves him for dead. Sagat is saved by Bison who takes him from being a 'decent' thug to a raving madman, intent on crushing Ryu. Guile is of course a navy seal that is on the hunt for Bison after he killed his whole squad (including best friend Charlie) while going after his syndicate. Everyone else could be peppered in somewhere, or make cameos. Maybe Chun Li is training under Ryu, and Akuma is the mysterious figure that comes in and no one is quite certain who's side he is on or why. Perhaps at the end, Sagat has a chance to finally kill Ryu, but decides to help Guile kill Bison instead, because he is still a moral dude deep down, and Ryu geniunely feels bad about what he did to Sagat, so he ends up forgiving him. Go ahead Capcom, take that and run with it....lol
They have a Black Eye Pea playing Vega. Enough said.
You might find it a hilarious review!!! nuff said!!!
