P U R D I E’s review published on Letterboxd :
Lets not fool ourselves here - Street Fighter is a piece of shit.
But I'll be damned if time isn't being kind to this car crash. Watching it as a straight comedy last night in a packed cinema, it was a hoot.
Things that are bad about Street Fighter = Everything.
Things that are amazing in Street Fighter =
- Raul Julia's straight delivery of a proposterous script.
- Van Damme's inspirational call to arms.
- Van Damme calling Bison a dick head.
- Bison's clown painting.
- Bison's horseback painting.
- Everything Zangief - EVERYTHING. The guy is dynamite.
- Dr Dhalsim's vanishing hair.
- Blanka maintaining his humanity watching video's of Dolphins and Puppy's.
- Van Damme telling a polititian that he's lost his balls.
- Bison's Arcade Controller.
- E.Honda & Zangief's slow motion fight with overdubbed Godzilla sound effects.
The list could easily go on. This movie is a riot.
