I bought Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li for a couple of reasons. First, I had only seen the last half of the movie on cable and wanted to see what I had missed. Second, I like Kristin Kreuk and enjoyed the part of the film that I had seen. Finally, when I saw that this was a three-disc set for a terrific price, I knew I had to get it.
The blu-ray doesn't disappoint. Like other reviewers have stated, the quality is excellent, crisp sharp transfer and astounding sound. The discs are loaded with extras and the behind the scenes footage is informative and entertaining. For die-hard fans there is even a full length animated movie (and believe me, the animation is very limited) that looks at the origins of Street Fighter. Personally, I skipped that disc after the first five minutes and stuck with the other extras and the film, which, incidentally, comes in both the theatrical version and the unrated version.
I know this movie for the most part was savaged...
I wanted to give more stars, but simply can't. If you want to purchase this movie, I recommend looking for a cheap(er) price for it...whether you purchase Blu-ray or DVD because it is simply alright, but not great!!! I like Kristen Kruek, a little, but she's never been great...simply mediocre. Overall, the movie was a little more than mediocre. Judge for yourself. I hope I helped out.
I can't speak to the additional disks, but I did see the blu ray unrated edition of the movie. The most important thing I can convey to you is that the writing for this movie is terrible. Absolutely terrible. Some movies pull off bad writing with a "cheese" factor where you can watch with friends and laugh at the goofy nature of the lines. But this movie seems to be trying really hard to be serious. So I guess the director of the movie thought they could manage to make the awful script work that way. I feel bad for the actors. They tried. And in some cases you can see how professional they were being, but the writing defeated them.
To further clarify my assertion of bad writing, the story introduces all sorts of potentially interesting tidbits that could be stories of their own, and then rushes through them. Predictably though, these tidbits end up being used later in the story without any real reason to use them. For example, Chun Li goes through intense training...
