Private Luc Deveraux and his sadistic sergeant, Andrew Scott, got killed in Viet Nam. The army uses their bodies for a secret project - reanimating dead soldiers as deadly obedient cyborgs. However, their memories come back too.

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. Then two small time hustlers Ryu and Ken, are arrested along with Sagat, a powerful arms dealer and Vega for dealing of illegal weapons. Guile recruits them in order to find Bison's base. 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
Due to several set-backs, the production was already six days behind schedule on day 10 of the shoot in Thailand. Every time when the producers confronted him with delays, director Steven E. de Souza employed what he called 'the old John Ford trick' by tearing out a page from the script, to get back on track. However, during editing, he found out that several vital scenes were missing, and that the fight scene choreography lacked cohesion, so sets had to be re-built in Vancouver for re-shoots. See more »

It was twenty years ago. You hadn't promoted yourself to general yet. You were just a petty drug lord. Huh! You and your gang of murderers gathered your small ounce of courage to raid across the border for food... weapons...

The title sequence is different, depending whether you watch the International version (distributed by Columbia, the Street Fighter logo just appears after the Columbia lettering) or the US version (distributed by Universal, the Street Fighter logo appears over the Universal globe). See more »
It's really dangerous to make a movie out of a video game, especially when the characters in the video game are cartoony. STREET FIGHTER is a terrible movie. The characters are a joke, and ACT like it's all a joke. The movie looks cheesy (study Bison's "hovering" command pod - it's obviously hooked to some kind of crane), and committing the famous Street Fighter martial arts movies into live action just looks stupid. What do you expect from DeSouza when the only things he directed before were a "Tales From The Crypt" episode and some shows of "Bowling For Dollars"? (No joke) Even the few Van Damme fans that are still left (after he's made countless bombs like this) will be embarrassed for their onscreen hero.
