5.0 out of 5 stars Laughing at most reviewers April 13 2004
This movie ranks as one of my favourite films I have ever seen. I have watched the film over 7 times over the past month and have still enjoyed the work. Reason?
People keep viewing this film as a serious VidGame-to-film adaptation. It isn't. This film has a creative license, which has it's own storyline, with a few "game" ideas thrown in. This film isn't supposed to be a serious action flick. It's a light-hearted action spoof, which is meant to entertain the humourful.
I disagree with 99% of all reviews i have read all around the internet, in which to say that this movie doesn't suck. People just can't see it for what it really is - a spoof, not unlike Hot-Shots (albeit, not so obvious).
Raul Julia is the best, and from what i feel, the Bison I'd imagine to be. Mad, self-opinionated, and damn sure of himself. So sure that he can still joke.
People need to stop viewing this film as a straight forward VidGame-to-film adaptation. This is a film, with Street Fighter characters and a couple of Street Fighter backgrounds. I could guaruntee that if all the characters were given different names, people would be complaining that "it was a street fighter ripoff".
Take my advice - give the film a go, and view it as a spoof. Something just to laugh at, and not taken seriously. Once you master that, you may begin to see why i love this film so much

5.0 out of 5 stars Parallel Universe? March 9 2004
The end of Raul Julia's esteemed career is startlingly similar to the late, great Orson Welles'.
"Street Fighter," a movie based on a toy/video game, was Mr. Julia's final film. He plays Bison, a maniacal super-villain with anti-gravity boots and delusions of godhood.
Orson Welles' last appearance (at least, his voice) was "Transformers: the Movie," based on a toy/cartoon. He played Unicron, a maniacal super-villain planet (generating his own gravity) and delusions of godhood.
Unicron is destroyed by the Autobot Matrix. Bison is destroyed in a fight-scene reminiscent of "the Matrix."
The Autobot girl Arcee, played by Susan Blu, is hot (if you're into that sort of thing). The female Street Fighter Cammy, played by Kylie Minogue, is hot (if you're into that sort of thing).
One of the Street Fighter heroes, Guile, has an annoying French-sounding accent. One of the Autobot heroes, Wheelie, is annoying (and may be French).
I can watch "TF:TM" over and over again. Hmm....I guess the similarities end there.

I really think Dolph Lundgren(The Punnisher, Rocky 4, Universal Soldier) would have been better as Guile. He even looks like the video game character. But Van Damme's name will sell. Okay fine. The movie has goofy acting, sets, costumes, lines, etc. But it's a complete movie and I felt it deserves 3 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars whats with the bad reviews?? this movie was good Jan. 2 2004
By A Customer
i can't understand why so many people disliked streetfighter but i enjoyed it very much as i love the video games, the comedy fitted in well in the movie and the story was pretty good and not as complex like mortal kombat as well as the action was spot on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ah! DON'T change the channel! Oct. 27 2003
Format:VHS Tape
Street Fighter is one of my favorite movies but is sooo short it makes me wish there was more to it. The plot is sort of wacky and cartoonish, too. Major Bison (Raul Julia) has created a new force of evil called Bison troopers and has captured a number of soldiers and nurses from the Allied Nations. The goofy part is that he is holding them ransom for $20,000,000,000 and they have three days to live. If you're gonna do that, ya might as well kill them or ask for world domination! You'll never get that much! At the same time, he has taken Colonel Guile's-AN soldier-(Jean-Claude Van Damme) friend and attempted to turn him into a killing monster. Guile, angrily and vengefully, goes to recover the hostages and kick son of a bi***'s Bison's a** so hard the next Bison wannabe will feel it (quote Colonel Guile). There are so many other turns in the plot that makes it fun to watch. Its also got lots of comedy and action/adventure to rock the genre. Rent it first since it is a movie that only certain people have taste for.

3.0 out of 5 stars STREET FIGHTER - - COLLECTOR'S EDITION Oct. 15 2003
Have anybody encounter any problem with this DVD ? All the new generation DVD PLAYER including THE HIGH END MODEL , can't play this title .
My old PIONEER PLAYER can only play this title . I recently bought a new copy but the problem still the same .
STREET FIGHTER suppose to be a big hit for VAN DAMME but end up being the biggest flop movie . Director STEVEN E.DESOUZA seem have lost his direction . Even the anime is much better than the live action . Why can't they shoot this movie with a serious script , minus the comedy part & made the action scene more reliastic . IS A LIVE ACTION MOVIE , NOT AN ANIME MOVIE .
