This Street Fighter film is obviously taking a different direction than the 1994 Jean-Claude Van Damme film. While the earlier film attempted to duplicate the look the videogames (to mixed results), this film seems to be taking on a more realistic appearance.
In fact, the look of the film is so different from the games, if it wasn’t in the title, I would have no idea that this is a Street Figher adaptation. Based on this trailer, the only character that truly retains his/her look from the game is that of the masked fighter Vega. Heck, I wouldn’t even know that the villain (played by Neal McDonough) was M. Bison if it wasn’t pointed out to me.
A Street Fighter movie that looks next to nothing like Street Fighter? I’m going to pass on this one when it opens next month.
