    Cheesy as hell is an understatement.

    Though...is it wrong of me to still hold out hope for a Van Damme cameo? I just saw JCVD a couple days ago and to me Jean Claude's badass all over again.

    And movie studios wonder why they're losing money...

    I mean it in the nicest, most excited way possible when I say that I can't imagine how this movie can match the first movie in terms of entertainment.

    I feel sorry for Raul Julia.
    His last film before he died was SF? that's no way for Gomez Addams to go out.

    so this Chun Li project makes me shudder.

    Dudes - watch Ip Man (Yip Man) instead. Its a movie based on Bruce Lee's sifu!

    Huh, it lacks the "fanservice" part of the movie.

    Why try and hide it, degrade the actress to be in lingere or like naked to get more people. Its basicly... the only way...

    Yeah. Cheese-a-mundo.

    Plus, she needs to do about a million leg presses before she can pass as Chun Li. Non-twig thighs or GTFO.

    Bah. Gomez Addams is John Astin, first and foremost.

    If you want a good street fighter movie watch the original animated one. Hollywood always fails when they don't respect the source material.

    Was that his last one, or that terrible Clint Eastwood movie that Michael Bay ripped off in Bad Boys II? The one where they started throwing cars off of that car transport?

    Anyway, this movie has fail written all over it. Not even Kristen Kreuk's sweet money maker can save this film. It'll open at number six if it's lucky. WB needs to cast Kreuk in something interesting, like a Cassandra Cain movie. Batgirl:Unmasked. That would be too awesome for words.

    But I liked him as Gomez anyway.
    he made it his own and a damn sight better than i ever expected.

    i remember the Dedication at the end of SF for Raul, and i wasn't aware of any other movie he had done just prior to his passing.

    I am just surprised that of all the characters in the SF franchise, they picked Chun Li.
    the reasons? well, she is a babe.
    gotta get the pube-aged boys.

    other than that, i don't have a clue why

    At least she could wear the blue tracksuit from SF Alpha briefly. It's more realistic than her more well known gear, but its still more Chun-Li than what she's got there.

    Wonder what the fight sequences look like? That to me would be the make or break.

    I refuse to judge this movie until I see a video of Vega fighting, Then I shall judge it.
