There are so many video game movies in the world. And honestly, a lot of them are bad. Some of them, though, are so bad that they’re kind of amazing. This is the case with Street Fighter: The Movie.
Make no mistake, this is a bad, sometimes dumb, and often-times cheap-looking film. However, it’s also an absurd amount of fun to watch, especially due to some of the performances. Whether it’s Raul Julia’s General M. Bison or even the movie’s version of Zangief, played by Andrew Bryniarski, it’s hard to not be entertained by the over-the-top characters on-screen. Also did you remember that pop star Kylie Minogue is in this movie? You do now.
Given that it’s been 26 years since Street Fighter: The Movie first debuted in 1994, now seemed like as good a time as any to look back on one of the most iconic bad video game movies ever made. It’s stuffed full of familiar characters, Easter eggs from the video game franchise, and some very strange references to things that you never knew existed in the Street Fighter universe.
