Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li

Critics Consensus

The combination of a shallow plot and miscast performers renders Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li a perfectly forgettable video game adaptation.

    Is it against the law to make a good SF movie? I'm beginning to think so. I couldn't even bring myself to finish this.

    <i>Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li</i>. What a waste of 90 minutes. Sorry Andrzej Bartkowiak, but this is one horrendous picture.</p><p>For a film based off of a video game, it takes itself way too seriously and this makes the characters, among other things, look more out of place than they should be. As for the story, it is uninteresting and most of the film ends up feeling really mundane.</p><p>The story and concept has the green light to unleash the action; however, there isn't enough of it. The choreography is pretty good in the early going, but as the film progresses it all goes downhill as it becomes less impressive. Eventually it all leads up to the predictable grand finale of Kristin Kreuk taking on Neal McDonough. Talk about the wrong stuff.</p><p>Some of the acting is mediocre at best. The rest is dreadful. Aside from her looks, Kristin Kreuk isn't anything spectacular and her narration scenes are uninspiring and quite bland. Chris Klein is absolutely terrible. He tries to pull off an over the top character, but fails miserably. What few good things this film has, it is offset by Chris Klein's performance.</p><p>All that's left to say is that <i>Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li</i> is a waste of time. Please move on to something else.</p>
