Leave Your Thoughts About the Street Fighter Movie for the Next Retronauts




Retronauts Movie Month is rolling along to our next feature, 1994's Street Fighter, starring the inimitable Raul Julia and a curiously Belgian Guile. This one seems to have a better reputation than our last movie, thanks to a lot of full-on Walken scenery chewing by the late Mr. Julia. As with Super Mario Bros., I'd like you to leave your comments about the movie to help shape our discussion -- then, we can pick apart your arguments without you being there to defend yourself! (We will try to not do this.) So, does Street Fighter stand out compared to all of the forgettable fighting game adapations that followed? Leave your comments on this blog post before Tuesday, February 21 at 12:00pm PST!

Here's a trailer if you still need motivation. This film is PG-13, parents; consider yourselves strongly cautioned.

Re: Leave Your Thoughts About the Street Fighter Movie for the Next Retronauts

I misread the title as a new SF movie was coming.

First, I prefer the anime version that came out a few months earlier.

My main problem with the SF movie is simple.

It's a game where the story is there's a fighting tournament and the greatest fighters go at it. Ryu and Ken to prove their skills, Guile and Chun Li for revenge, E Honda to prove sumo is a legit fighting style and to investigate Bison for steroids apparently, Blanka for fun, Zangief to prove wrestling/Russia is awesome, Dhalsim for money for his village, T Hawk to regain his homeland and find his friend, Cammy to find out her past, Fei Long to prove he's legit, Dee Jay to gain inspiration, Balrog for $, Vega because it's his job and he's nuts, Sagat to avenge his loss to Ryu, and Bison for revenge and power. I could see a movie being made about a tournament like this. Heck, pick a character out of a hat and make a movie about them.

Instead we got some weird action fighting movie with a mad man trying to take over the world. Ryu and Ken aren't world class fighters, Dhalsim is a scientist, Blanka is not from the jungle and is also Charlie, Balrog is a good guy, T Hawk I think is soldier #3, Sagat is not as imposing as the games, etc...

I enjoyed it. It was different from the games, but it was still an enjoyable movie.

It was a movie based on a game about a worldwide tournament of fighting, with no tournament. That was my problem with the changes, a little too much.
