The Legend of Chun-Li

Written by Myhorng. 14 comments Posted in: Movie, Review

Those who are close to me will know that my tolerance towards movie is wide. To me, movie is meant for entertainment. So, if it serves this purpose well, I’ll be ok with it. Of course, this doesn’t mean that I do not know which is good and which is bad. Maybe my standard good and bad might be differ from yours.

Chun Li, a video game character in Street Fighter II make famous by Capcom. I used to play that video game quite a lot during schooling time during ‘ponteng’ (skip) class etc. Now, they make it into a movie, The Legend of ChunLi. By the mean, I need to watch it, since it is something to remembrance our youth.

ChunLi’s fighting moves

In general, I find myself more entertaining with The punisher II, at least I get some laugh from it. Refer to fireangelism’s review on it here and you will know what I mean (it used to be 3 words instead of 1, “Don’t F Bother’).

Kristin Kreuk & CG ChunLi

There are loads of scenes that not really making any sense but this movie is all about ‘Street Fighter’ the movie. So, it does make sense by this way ‘only’. Kristin Kreuk (Chun Li) is hot and she’s trying her very best in acting I guess. Elizaveta Kiryukhina, (Bison’s daughter) quite pretty. The rest of the FSI, CIA, FBI, SWAT whatever ABC, DEF, all really contribute zero to the movie. They are not even funny that would at least make u laugh. The fighting, isn’t that great anyway. How could you be able to speak good mandarin while you were young (daddy is talking to you in mandarin all the while) and you are not able to speak proper mandarin when you are older. This is the one of the major area I couldn’t tolerate in the movie. Argh… that’s all. Not going to replay that movie in my mind again.

    And one more thing: She was a rich girl judging from her house and all the maids and it doesn’t even make sense for her to go hungry and homeless in Bangkok. She could have at least taken some cash with her or credit card.

    And how come Bison doesn’t wear that hat or beret or cap or whatever u call it.
