Street Fighter | 1994 | PG-13 | - 2.5.3

Jean Claude Van Damme and the late Raul Julia star in this film adaptation of the popular video game. Van Damme fights to protect the world from the mad Bison (Julia).

SEX/NUDITY 2 - Men are shown in a few scenes shirtless and glistening with sweat. Raul Julia attempts to seduce a woman against her will, but the seduction is aborted when she starts to use her martial arts skills on him. There is a short scene where scantily clad women belly-dance (but only navels are shown). Van Damme checks out a woman by gazing at her and making a semi-suggestive comment.

VIOLENCE/GORE 5 - There is a great deal of violence but it is "cartoonish" in nature; some, however results in gore: a man is shown with a slightly bloody face scratch, Julia is shown with slightly bloody cheeks, two men are slashed and whipped and a few bloody gashes are shown on their bodies. Julia briefly fights with two men and snaps their necks. A prison escape results in men being punched, kicked, shot at and killed. Van Damme is shot and left for dead. A man is made into a monster with orange hair, big muscles and a Neanderthal forehead. Men are electrocuted, and a few explosions occur.

LANGUAGE 3 - One scatological term and a few mild profanities are used.

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
