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.

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. Full Review

The New York Times
Reveling in the vivid Bangkok locations, Geoff Boyle's photography is crisp and bright, and Dion Lam's action choreography unusually witty. Full Review

It boggles the mind that The Legend of Chun-Li is as vapid and dull as it is. Full Review
