Classic Thoughts: Street Fighter

While the recently released Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li went for a more realistic approach that separated itself from of original film, the 1994 Street Fighter film with Jean-Claude Van Damme stuck really close to the source material, for better or worse.

I would agree that this is far from the best of the video game adaptations out there, but it isn’t the worst either (nothing can beat the adaptations by Uwe Boll).

I would say that if you watch the film without taking things too seriously, you would at least be entertained. Don’t know if could say the same about the new film, which IS taking itself seriously.
