(THE FOLLOWING POST INCLUDES SOME SCENES OF HARSH REALITY.)
The new flick centers on one character: Chun-Li. Thatís it. No Ryu, no Ken, no Guile, no eight million characters. Now if you are going to get up-in-arms about this why not rent the original Street Fighter to see how you can do it wrong. However we do get a bunch of Street Fighter bad guys.
This was taken from http://www.latinoreview.com/news.php?id=2293 . Now after you read this, hear what I have to say.
This movie is going to be horrible. The guy who wrote the script hasn't done anything exciting. I am expecting a very mediocre movie. WHERE THE FUCK DOES HE GET THE BALLS TO WRITE THIS SHIT?!
No Ryu, No Ken. Not even Guile. What the fuck? Ryu was, and always will be the main character. I bet you anything more people would be familiar with the word Hadoken then would be with Kikoken.
The script writer, named Justin Marks, has turned our beloved game into a cheap version of the Sonny Chiba movies, ironically; are also called Street Fighter. You can also say it's a very watered down version of Kill Bill. He's saying Chun-Li's father is possibly alive, and an employee of Shadowlaw? Once again, what the fuck? Still alive when she is an adult? In her SFII ending, you can see she is kneeling at his grave. And it's a known fact he was killed when she was young.
We all know Ryu is the main protagonist in the series. Ryu has been in every single fucking game. Chun-Li has not.
The only comfirmed hero characters are Chun-Li and Gen. Like I said, no Ryu, Ken, Guile, Zangief, fuck...not even Blanka.
The bad guys are Bison, Balrog, and Vega. But we all know Vega's getting his ass handed to him, one way or the other. C'mon, you know it's coming. Where's Sagat?
The director? Oh Jesus tittyfucking Christ...it's the same guy who directed another crap movie, DOOM. Yeah, Doom. With The Rock. I was a fan of The Rock when he was a wrestler, and I loved his movies beforehand, but this was a step down.
While I'm on the subject, let me switch gears and go to the 1994 movie. I don't know what you guys see in it, but I can't stand it. Jean Claude Van Damme only did one REAL good movie. Know what it was called? BLOODSPORT. Aside from that, his acting is very wooden, which explains why he basically does nothing but movies that go straight to DVD or made for TV. Enough said.
I'm one of the biggest Street Fighter freaks I know. And even I'm saying I'm not going to see this movie. Goddammit, Hollywood.
I'm left with no choice. I have to make my own script. To show the world how a Street Fighter movie SHOULD be done.
Basically for now, when it comes to the new Street Fighter movie. We're shit out of luck and jolly well fucked.
