Consensus: Though it offers mild entertainment through campy one-liners and the overacting of the late Raul Julia, Street Fighter's nonstop action sequences are not enough to make up for a predictable, uneven storyline.

Far less captivating than the videogame that inspired it.

Campy video game-derived action-fest.

Julia (in his final role) hams it up shamelessly as the camp commandant, but not even his suave presence and throwaway quips can save this noisy, brainless mess.

Even at eleven years old I couldn't understand why this was so bad while the games were so incredible.

The story of STREET FIGHTER is a mere trifle, but who cares? The real problem is that...the visceral impact is practically nil.

New York Times

A dreary, overstuffed hodgepodge of poorly edited martial arts sequences and often unintelligible dialogue.

Reel Film Reviews

...the film has been infused with a myriad of shamelessly over-the-top elements that inevitably become quite tough to take.

In its noisy, pointless way, Street Fighter does come close to the frenetic meandering of a video game scenario -- which is precisely the problem.

It's so bad, that it's actually good. This movie is hilarious, over the top, stupid, and a lot of fun. I especially loved Raul Julia as the bad guy.

I'm sitting here laughing to myself because I gave this such a high rating. This movie is one gigantic piece of crap, but yet it's too damned… More

It's certainly no Mortal Kombat, but still not bad. But I love Van Damme movies, even when they're not one of his best.

Cool to see a childhood video game put into a film, but all in all, the film is cheesy and many characters could have looked alot better. I think that if you… More

Even as a little kid, I knew there was something very wrong (a lot of things, actually) with this movie. If they were to do this film over, they'd need to… More
