It's a shame that a movie that has one part dedicated to Street Fighter can more authentically represent the franchise than the Van Damme Street Fighter movie did. I really hope the new SF movie is good. I can understand the anger over the movie not focusing on Ryu and Ken. I was a bit disappointed too, as Ryu was my favorite. But I assume Ryu and Ken will be involved in some manner. Regardless it makes sense as Chun Li's story is one that can be fleshed out more. Ryu is just a warrior in search of the next fight. While Chun Li has become an interpol agent who is trying to bring down the evil Shadowloo organization, which is responsible for the death of her father. Sounds good to me. I'm not familiar with Kristen Kreuk. So the tepid reaction she is receiving on the board does have me a bit concerned.
She's a decent enough actress, but the vast majority of her work has been on Smallville playing Lana Lang for the past 7 years. So being known primarily for portraying a comic book character on a comic book show that is geared towards a youthful audience doesn't really convince many people of her worthiness. It is somewhat of a paradox though as the Street Fighter movie is a video game movie geared towards a youthful audience as well. And it wasn't that long ago that the video game companies realized that the majority of gamers make up the majority of the people who buy comics. That's why events like Comic-Con started featuring videogame developers several years back. You'd think that there would be plenty of crossover fans who'd accept Kreuk, but when it comes to videogame & comic book movies fans demand respect of the source material and a level of quality & most importantly - believability... I'm looking at you Emo-Spiderman. I guess a lot of people don't think her credentials make her someone who could deliver a videogame adapted movie that doesn't suck balls, and we all know that videogame movies tend to suck balls... I'm looking at you Uwe Boll.
