Trivia:

This was Raul Julia's last theatrical movie. The closing title card reads: "FOR RAUL Vaya Con Dios". The translation from Spanish is "go with God".

Goofs:

Revealing mistakes:
When Zangief and E. Honda wrestle, the two fall through a hole in the ground. Instead of breaking through the ground (which was intended) the two clearly rip through a tarp.

Quotes:

Colonel William F. Guile:
Bison. Are you man enough to fight me?

Bison:
Anyone who opposes me will be destroyed.



User Review

NOT the worst movie ever – but not

Rating:

Some people claim this is a bad movie… true.
Some people claim this movie is a bad translation of the video game it's
supposed to be based on… true.
Some people claim it's the worst ever… trust me, I've seen
worse.

While it does have its Christmas list of bad things (poor script, ugly sets,
subpar acting), it's good for a laugh or two because of the negatives… at
the same time however, any dedicated fan of the Street Fighter games will
find this as an insult because it does not properly adapt the video
game…

Is it a bad movie? Sure it is… but I've seen my share of bad movies and I
can tell that this isn't the absolute worst!
