Movie – Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li (2009)

Starring: Kristin Kreuk, Neal McDonough, Chris Klein, Michael Clarke Duncan, Robin Shou, Moon Bloodgood, Edmund Chen, Josie Ho, Taboo, Pei Pei Cheng

Director: Andrzej Bartkowiak

This movie is definitely more for the kids, still I was rather thrilled to see Edmund Chen (fellow Singaporean) on the silver screen.  Pity the overall plot was rather weak and honestly there seems to be miscast of characters.  I love watching Kristin Kreuk in action but honestly my mandarin is way better than hers and that is saying alot!  So how then can you cast her as Chun-Li?? Also if you have ever played the video game you’ll know what a miscast she really is.  But hey I think she is pretty and is quite a good actress overall.  Another big mistake was casting Chris Klein as someone from Interpol! What were they thinking?

The fight sequences (choegraphy) were much better than Dragon ball in my opinion but still not enough to really earn the title of Street Fighter! Honestly I cannot decide which Street Fighter movie (the one with Van Dame or this one)  is better or for that matter which is far worst.

Just glad the kids enjoyed themselves….

  1. wah edmund chen got to meet LANA LANG?!!! i’m so jealous… anyway i thought he was out of the acting business. i just figured that, when he started doing hair growth commercials. heh.
    but thanks for the review, gonna watch!

  2. You’re most welcome madame, but it is a little strange that a rather negative review would entice you to watch it.

    Anyhow would be nice to hear your take, after you’ve watched it.
