Everytime the thought of the 1994 Street Fighter live action movie crosses my mind, I can’t help but shudder in fright. Sometimes the attacks gets so bad, I find myself curled up in the corner in a fetal position covering my ears screaming. Quite possibly THE game of my youth, ruined in a 104 minute epic of shit. Fortunately, I’m much older now and have grown a tougher skin and have come to expect the eventuality of some of my favorite childhood intellectual properties getting the Hollywood treatment.
What the 94′ Street Fighter movie starring Jean-Claude Van Damme has taught me is to look at the bright side of things. To recognize the poistive, not the negative, in essence to see the silver lining. I mean, at the very least I got to see real life manifestations(albiet shitty) of beloved characters. So as god awful as the new Street Fighter movie(I’m sure) WILL be, I have to admit…it can’t be all bad.
Now all they have to do is recreate the famous scene from Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie where Chun Li fights Vega shot for shot. Shot…for…shot.
Mmmmmm, dirty Chun Li.
