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
"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.
The reason I love this so much is because of how campy it is. Raul Julia steals the show as his over he top performance as Bison, the psycho path who believes in the Warriors code, but just wants world peace. In fact this movie holds one of the all time greatest villian lines ever "For you the day Bison destroyed your town may have been the most devestating day of your life. But for me, it was Tuesday." Classic campy dialouge that makes Raul Julia etched in my mind forever in this movie. This is a guilty pleasure, it's campy and cheesey, but over all a fun movie to watch.
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 .
