Like the new Hulk movie, the new Street Fighter movie is attempting to revitalize a pop culture franchise tainted in the movie industry by a less-than-stellar debut. I really doubt a movie based on a fighter can rise that much above the rest, but if it’s even nearly as awesome as Mortal Kombat: Annihilation, I’ll be satisfied. Check out the lineup:
Kristin Kreuk plays Chun Li. She looks a little more Eskimo than Chinese, but she’s hot so nobody will complain.
Michael Clarke Duncan plays Mike Bison— I mean Mike Tys— I mean Balrog.
Taboo from the Black Eyed Peas, if that is his real name, plays Vega. (?)
We’ll see if these pretty-boys and pretty-girl can live up to the legend of the original.
