  • Director Andrzej Bartkowiak ("Romeo Must Die") works hard to supply the appropriate grittiness, but other than a few reasonably well-staged fight sequences, the proceedings are dull and visually uninspired. Justin Marks' solemn screenplay lacks any trace of wit. show more

  • There's something special about this underwhelming mess of a Street Fighter reboot that many cinematic cheese-lovers will find very appetizing. The fact is that The Legend of Chun-Li is not at all a good flick, but it's filled with so much cornball ineptitude that one would think some rather broken mad movie genius was behind it. show more

  • This is a movie for the overcaffeinated, undereducated teenager in all of us. show more

    The only reason to see this movie is to make fun of it.

    I remember watching the first street fighter movie. It sucked, really bad. I didn'******* it but I heard that the movie even my brother's friend thinks that this movie made the first on look like a masterpiece.Yeah if it's that bad it says a lot.So I give it a quick 1 out of 5.

    This movie isn't as bad as everyone said it is. I mean, the central characters are the same. It doesn't follow the video game down to the last detail, but the general jist of it is sound. The movie has a story of it's own and it was quite good. The acting by some (like Charlie and his partner) was cheesy. Kristen Kreuk held this movie together. I don't understand what's the deal with the "fireball" like projection. Is that her chi or spiritual energy or something like that? I felt the movie could've explained things a little more better. Still, it didn't let me down.
