The quirky cavalcade of fun continues as Dr. Huutrz and I explore the murky depths of the videogame-to-film translation known as Street Fighter. Though there isn’t a single fight to be had in a street. Oh Hollywood, you so crazy!
As I’ve written in my written review of Street Fighter…written…this movie is like a cookie cutter action film/mad libs script with all the blanks filled in by people who took five minutes out of their day to research this game. Instead of taking a few lead characters from the game, they decided to put them all in. All! And did they ever mess around with their back stories just to try to make things fit. Even if you have a passing knowledge of the game you’ll be scratching your head trying to figure out how they went from the game to this mess. Honestly the only thing they got right was Raul Julia as M. Bison, but afterwards Julia couldn’t stand the fact he was in it and took his own life by giving himself cancer.
Apologies for the camera going down so much, and the eventual camera shifts after we came back. It’s hard to see everything straight after so many hits. We hope it just adds to the hilarity, because trying to figure things out in a haze of confusion is fucking funny. That and E. Honda pretending to be a cameraman. Then Godzilla. You have to see the movie to really understand that last part. First part too. Oh wait, I think it was Balrog who was the cameraman and Honda was the guy in the van…shit. I can’t remember. Chun-Li was the news person, I know that…just watch the vids while I figure this out…
