Show Notes

Again, another film taking liberties with the source material.  Some of it works, most does not.  Raul Julia hams it up like no other with his portrayal of M. Bison

"Street Fighter: The Movie" is a 1994 action film based on the popular video game franchise. The film follows Colonel Guile, played by Jean-Claude Van Damme, as he leads an international team of street fighters to rescue hostages from the evil warlord General M. Bison, portrayed by Raul Julia. The story unfolds on the fictional Shadaloo Island, where Bison plans to rule the world with his army. The film incorporates characters from the Street Fighter video game series, such as Chun-Li, Ryu, and Ken. Despite mixed reviews, the film has gained a cult following over the years for its campy and over-the-top portrayal of the iconic video game characters.
