Its always been a weird one this. The stories in some games are so much better than the stories in Blockbuster films but for some reason they never translate very well.

I see they are making street fighter again (as per your list) The last street fighter was an awful film. They messed up the characters and didn't follow the story as it should have been. The new one has Chun Li in the title - does this mean that because of this the new film will also be a failure?

The main film should be focused around Ken/Ryu and Bison with the others fitted in around - end of story. Anyone that needs proof of this should pick up the Street Fighter Manga DVD - That was the film street fighter should be.

As for the others, I don't hold much hope of any decent conversion.

I agree on the Manga Street Fighter.That is a really good film.The Fight Scene with Chun-Li and Vega is class.

As for going with Chun-Li for a new film...well it kinda makes sense.

I mean she has a more in depth back story what with M.Bison/Balrog(depending on the version you played) Killing her Policeman father.So there is a better angle for a film.As for wether it will be any good well i aint gonna hold my breathe.
