Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Trades in vital game info to squeeze in as much acrobatics and fighting sequences as possible. Bartkowiak shouldn't have taken the first part of the title so literally."
‑ Perri Nemiroff,
"This sloppy second attempt at bringing the Street Fighter franchise to the big screen...violates one of the primary rules for any Playstation to motion picture translation - never mess with the mythology."
‑ Bill Gibron, PopMatters
"Quite simply an embarrassment that cannot crawl into ignoble obscurity fast enough."
‑ Mark Pollard, Kung Fu Cinema
"Devoid of a single redeeming feature, the motley flick is a hodge-podge of chop-socky cliches -- a ball of flaming, stinky martial arts chi."
‑ John P. McCarthy, Boxoffice Magazine
"Generic action sequences, bad acting, cringe-inducing dialogue and a miscast leading lady all combine for a thoroughly painful hour and a half at the movies."
‑ Sean McBride, Sean the Movie Guy
"...ultimately fares worse than its eye-rollingly campy 1994 predecessor..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"No mojo in its dojo."
‑ Bruce Bennett, Spectrum (St. George, Utah)
"There will never be a good video game movie no matter how many stars pop up to headline them."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Film Threat
"Just a boring, bad action movie - which, to be fair, means that it's one of the best video game adaptations ever made."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Not only is this a strong early contender for worst film of the year, it could well be a candidate for the worst film ever made."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"Street Fighter fans like me will be blissfully playing Street Fighter IV, with this movie occupying our minds as little more than a disposable curiosity."
‑ Jeffrey Chen, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"Singularly witless."
‑ Jeffrey Bloomer, Paste Magazine
"if there's anything legendary on display, it's the performance of co-star Chris Klein, which can only be described as epic in its awfulness."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"The Legend of Chun-Li is as vapid and dull as it is."
‑ Marc Savlov, Austin Chronicle
"It seems to work hard at not being fun..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
