Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li
Friday, February 27, 2009

ADVERTISEMENTS


Captain's Log Stardate -314158.07


After attending the press launch of Globe's Pixlink yesterday at the Manila Contemporary Gallery, Lalaine, Rocky, Glen and I went to SM North EDSA to watch The Legend of Chun-Li. The poster above should have been a dead giveaway that the movie will suck but we decided to watch it anyway.

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li is the second movie based on Capcom's popular fighting game, Street Fighter.


The movie stars Smallville's Kristin Kreuk as Chun-Li, Neal McDonough as M. Bison, Kingpin Michael Clarke Duncan as Balrog, and Lui Kang Robin Shou as Chun-Li's master Gen.


The movie opened in the Philippines 2 days before (3 days actually since our time is 1 day advance) the official showing date in the USA. Chun-Li is a pianist who was trained by her father in wushu, unlike the original Street Fighter with Van Damme wherein Chun-Li is a reporter.


We will see how Chun-Li learned martial arts from his father and Lui Kang Gen. The problem with this movie is that the fight scenes are boring and short. Take for example the much awaited face-off between Chun-Li and Vega. I think the fight lasted for only 2 or 3 minutes! No signature moves for Vega or even a second look at Chun-Li's short-lived Spinning Bird Kick. Yes, she did it for about 2 seconds then we get interrupted with her spinning bird necklace.

Vega was like an ugly rag doll, literally. And I thought Vega was handsome. Sheesh! At least Chun-Li was right when she said that Vega should keep his mask.


Her fight scene with these group of thugs is more exciting than her fight with Vega and M. Bison combined. Seriously. No Kidding.


The special effects are bad. I rather choose Ryu's non visible hadouken from the first movie than Chun-Li's Kikouken in this movie. It looked like a ghost from Ghostbusters when she released it to Bison.


The movie is a big disappointment for Street Fighter and Chun-Li fans like me. They should have at least developed the story better and included more fight scenes with Chun-Li.

There's no mention of Guile or any other characters besides Ryu "something". Charlie uses guns and no sonic booms or flash kicks, well... Chun-Li did one flash kick. Wierd. Vega should be handsome, but he isn't in the movie (no offense Taboo). Balrog uses rocket launchers. Bison is your typical generic evil white guy who doesn't even reveal a single "psycho" energy in the movie and Chun-Li didn't wear her signature costume.

Well, it's nice to know Lui Kang Robin Shou can still kick butts and Kristin Kreuk looks good on a pseudo Chun-Li costume and fights very well. But still, don't watch this movie. You'll be wasting your money as just as we wasted ours.

Just play the game Street Fighter 4 on arcades or buy the game for your PlayStation 3 or Xbox 360. Or you could always spend your money to buy a DVD of Jean-Claude Van Damme's Street Fighter. His version of Street Fighter is better than The Legend of Chun-Li. TRUST ME.

The clips in the video below basically shows everything exciting in the movie.



I wonder, should we watch the upcoming Dragon Ball movie or not since it will suck like this one? I believe it's the latter. At least we have Kristin Kreuk to ogle on here.

And I had my hopes way high. Also the poster on top is TERRIBLE. Local film distributors should seriously stop making local horribly photoshopped versions of movie posters. As if the international poster isn't bad enough.

Also, have you seen the Dragon Ball pictures? It's so horrible! It's like a Power Rangers episode.

@Ade - hahaha yeah, Looks like Kristin Kreuk's face was plastered using MS Paint.

Remember Dragon Ball: Magic Beans? I think that's better than the upcoming Dragon Ball Movie :-|

damn you jepoy! we should've watched that sarah and john lloyd flick instead... *shifty eyes*

Thanks for the warning, Jepoy. Bison was the only Street Fighter to be badass in all incarnations: games, anime, movie, even US cartoon. Too bad this movie breaks his perfect record. :(

We supposed to watch it last Sunday but we had to do some errands and ran out of time. Buti nlng pala. I guess we still going to watch it though for the sake of seeing Kristin Kreuk. Lol

I have heard of this film last year pa. Matagal tagal na ding diskurso ito sa Digg.com. And yes, from there, Street Fighter junkies have seen na this will be a poop flick. Even Dragon Ball >> I refuse to watch it kasi andami na namang ginawang HOLLYWOODization sa concept ng storya..Imagine a westernized Son Gokou...Ampf.

I'd better watch yung Ninja Assassin ni Rain. He looks good there and the story can be as kick as Kill Bill 1. (I miss O-ren Ishii bigla)...hahha..
