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

There will never be a good video game movie no matter how many stars pop up to headline them.

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.

Some fight for power. Some fight for us. Disappointing movie but not too bad either. On the whole, the movie doesn't quite work. It has some good ideas… More

The Legend of Chun-Li is a perfect example of why video game movies make both video game fans and the general public cringe. I don't think I've ever… More
