Sound and Vision:
The image is overall good but we did spot some grain and digital noise. The soundtrack is where the movie really shines with powerful music, effects and bass, perfectly positioned at the different speakers and subwoofer. The DTS-HD track is one to show off with.

The 18 minute feature of “Becoming a Street Fighter” is the most interesting bit here as it shows some of the history of the games and has the cast and crew talk about how to make a decent movie. If only they had followed their own advise.
This is the second movie based on the popular fight games from Capcom and if there’s one good thing to say about it, it’s that it’s better than the first movie. But that’s about it. Except for Kristin Kreuk, who puts down a tougher version of Lana from Smallville, the cast does a rather disappointing job which isn’t helped by the pretty stupid script that seems to have forgotten to take into account the entire history of the Street Fighter games.
What we’re left with is another game adaptation that shows not every game should be turned into a movie. Even if we get a nice presentation on Blu-ray
