Terrible movie, bottom line

I guess this 'could' be enjoyable for kids but anyone that was a fan of the Street Fighter video games will be revolted at this hideous piece of work. I watched this with friends when we had a 'Bad Movie Night' and I suppose it has SOME merit when used for that purpose, but it was so poor I don't know if I could even watch it again for that reason.

The film itself, directed by screenwriter Steven (Die Hard) de Souza, remains an amusing camp exercise, buoyed largely by the presence of Raul Julia in his final film role as mad dictator General Bison, who holds a trio of soldiers for ransom. Coming to the rescue is a bleached-blond Van Damme and a team of fighters, including Chun-Li (Ming-Na), Sagat (Wes Studi), Cammy (Kylie Minogue) and other characters from the Street Fighter rogues’ gallery. De Souza’s decision to weave humor into the storyline hobbles the impact of the fight scenes, which are largely relegated to the final third of the film, and budgetary restraints render some characters--most notably Robert Mammone’s Blanka--as laughable caricatures. The result is probably appalling forStreet Fighterdie-hards, though most audiences seem to regard it as a camp hoot. That status may account for this Extreme Edition, although the tie-in factor with the 2009 theatrical releaseStreet Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Lishould be taken into consideration as well. Those who own the 1999 Collector’s Edition DVD of this title will already have most of the extras featured here, including commentary ...
