Street Fighter is one of the greatest arcade games of all time. A truly skill based game, the controls of Street Fighter were so precise that if you learned strategy and perfected the moves, you’d be nearly unbeatable.
As good as the game was, its story was razor thin, so I was surprised when they decided to make a movie of it. Movies based off of video games are usually pretty bad, and Street Fighter with Jean-Claude Van Damme is no exception. That’s why it’s doubly surprising to see that they’re going at it again! 2009 will be bringing us Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li. This movie does not bode well for the career trajectory of Smallville actress Kristen Kreuk who plays Chun-li.
