Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: The fight scenes are saggy, the actors are stiff, and the sleepiness of it all is enough to make you nostalgic for the simple smackdown charms of the movie's namesake videogame. – Adam Markovitz, Entertainment Weekly, Dec 25, 2010

Rotten: A long slog with little payoff. – Sam Adams, Los Angeles Times, Mar 5, 2009

Rotten: Yet another video game crashes and burns upon its translation to the big screen with this cinematic rendition of the venerable franchise. – Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: Proving that there's no statute of limitations on lousy ideas, director Andrzej Bartkowiak's attempted franchise expansion returns to the Capcom motherlode that produced the worst movie in the entire Jean-Claude Van Damme filmography. – Jim Ridley, Village Voice, Sep 30, 2010

Nowhere near as bad as people like to pretend.

It's a basic action/martial arts/video game flick...which means it can be entertaining to people (like me) who enjoy the pros and cons on the genre. The difference this time is that it stars the iconic Chun Li, which is a welcome change of pace (seriously, how many times do we need to watch Ryu battling his demons in a movie?) Are there cheesy moments? Sure. I already told you it's an action/martial arts/video game flick. That's simply a part of the genre. Thankfully it's nowhere near as cheesy as the old Street Fighter live action film with Van Damme. No, Bison doesn't float around in a red clown suit with a massive cartoon grin like he does in the games...because that would look stupid in live action. No, Chun doesn't wear a replica of her blue dress and bounce of invisible walls like she does in the games...because that would look stupid in live action. That's not to say that there are NO references to the game, because there are lots. But, let's be real here: Some things simply cannot be translated into live action. If you understand this, then you just might be capable of enjoying an action/martial arts flick with a strong, respectable female lead. There really aren't enough of those, sadly. So, loosen up, and enjoy. And, don't forget to laugh at Nash's overlydramatic delivery.

Looks Awesome!
