Col. William Guile leads an army of soldiers into the country of Shadaloo to find traces to lead him to General M. Bison, who has captured many people including three missing soldiers. Among them is Carlos "Charlie" Blanka, in which Bison decides to turn into a hideous mutant. On the other hand, Chun Li is a reporter who seeks revenge against Bison for the death of her father years ago.

Now Guile, T. Hawk, Cammy, Ryu, Ken, Chun Li, Balrog and E. Honda have three days before Bison murders the hostages and takes over the world. Written by Emphinix

Did You Know?

Trivia

The final amphibious attack on M. Bison's compound, filmed on location in Thailand, was originally supposed to be an air assault. The Thai government wouldn't allow the use of its airspace for the large number of aircraft the scene would require, so the producers changed the final battle to a boat assault instead. See more »

Quotes

Ryu: I know you, you're Edmond Honda, the sumo from Hawaii. Almost made Yokozuna.

Everyone says its terrible but...
6 August 2003 | by Buff_jordan14See all my reviews

I first watched this as a young lad when it came out in 1994, i would have been in grade 4 at that point. I watched it as a street fighter gamer and loved the movie. I still watch it occasionally and I'm a 19 year old harsh movie critic. Now its obviously no Goodfellas or The Pianist, but for kids its a fun movie to watch and is pretty faithful to the games.

I still watch it and cannot understand why everyone thinks it is so terrible, i only see the massive gunfight between Van Damme and Bisons army as the only terrible part of the movie. Its not oscar material and was never supposed to be.

The plot has Bison (Julia) causing trouble in Shadaloo, some fictional pacific rim area I believe. He uses his drug money to fund his army in an attempt to take over the world. Guile (Van Damme) is a colonel in a fictional version of the UN, and is charged with stopping him, rescuing some hostages Bison has captured, and saving his old buddy. Now its personal.

Long story short, it obviously lacks in some acting, character developement etc. But on the plus side the fight between Ken and Sagat and Vega and Ryu is as good as gold.

People may think this movie is terrible, but i enjoy it for nostalgic reasons.
