This movie centers around Ryu, whose fears becoming consumed by a power called "Dark Hadou." Two other central characters are Ryu's friend Ken and Interpol officer Chun-Li. Many other characters in the Street Fighter series also make an appearance in the film.


I never played much Street Fighter growing up, but I think I had enough knowledge of the characters to enjoy the film.

Having finished the movie, I think the movie does a good job of giving the viewer sufficient information, and prior knowledge of the video game is unnecessary.

Overall, the movie is entertaining, but can sometimes feel cheesy.

Dang. The kid's ability to fight becomes uncanny.
He even joins the street fighter tournament!?!
Whoa. He literally blew his opponent away.

"Why does he fight?" pause "You keep fighting, to find that answer."
