    Kristin Kreuk (sp?) might be fucking hot as hell, but she's not a good actress. And I'm also kinda jaded towards her because of how bitchy she is as Lana in Smallville.

    But it can only get better from the original live action Street Fighter.

    What I'd love to see is an animated movie telling the entire Street Fighter story from the beginning. The story was never important to the game in the first place, so I only know the basics. Would appreciate a good movie based entirely on the game.

    The original had Raul Julia, which automatically makes it better than this piece of shit.

    Plus, the first was the kind of bad that you could laugh at, this one looks like it will just be plain bad.

    Is this like the Movie with Jean Claude Van Damm? I thought Chun Li was like a reporter or some shit.

    That's the one. This movie stomped all over the Van Damme one even when it was just trailers and teasers. Plus, I don't expect it to be all that great, so I won't be disappointed. And Kreuck is all kinds of sexy.

    She's had some minor fighting (lol Asian stereotyping) in Smallville, which was cheesy as shit. I hope the same fight choreography isn't used in the movie.

    I'm not a huge fan of street fighter movies, but if I had to pick, I'd say Jackie Chan's scene in City Hunter where he turns into Chun-Li is my favorite mostly because it's Jackie Chan in drag...

    I kinda liked this movie. It was much better than I expected. Not much plot, but I wasn't looking for that, and some odd facial expressions from the guy from American Pie...

    I was expecting hot shit, but instead I got golden piss.

    Chun Li may be hot and epic, but a movie with her as the main character?

    Come on, the Girl!power has had its time and to not delve deeper into the other more interesting characters just pisses me off.

    And then the lead bad guy is from Desperate Housewives.
