Movie Review by Zara
February 28th, 2009

I'm not quite sure why I thought it would be a good idea to see this movie. Call it a moment of weakened senses. I know that the first STREET FIGHTER movie was a joke (and sadly, Raoul Julia's last movie role), but because it was a movie about a video game, there was a humourous aspect to it, going over the top and making it a guilty pleasure. Something to watch and make fun of at the same time.

This movie doesn't have any humour, unless you're counting Chris Klein's hairpiece or the unintentional laughter at his character's expense. It's a pity that the movie couldn't have been a little more light hearted, it certainly needed it. Yet, at the same time, there is no straight drama in the movie either. You never feel connected to the characters, so there is no sympathy or understanding for them.

As for poor Kristin Kreuk, she's a pretty face with absolutely zero personality. She's a plain white sheet of paper with her expressions. This is neither good nor bad, which makes it the worst of all: mediocre. She doesn't look the part, she can't pull off the martial arts tricks (I was thinking that if the movie had to be so slow and droll, at least the martial arts fights would make up for it - think again) and she's just... bad, I guess. But she's not even good enough at being bad for you to call her bad. Which is, to repeat myself, even worse.

I used to have a silly crush on Kristin Kruek during her time on Smallville untill I realized she was much younger than me and I could no longer mentally filter out her quasi-lisp/speech impediment. Even fond memories of that couldn't help her in this movie. I will say that with that terrible toupee Klein had on, he could easily pass for a young Dwight Schultz in an A-Team movie if it ever gets made (and I am hoping not.)

This movie was just stupid though, admit it.
