Ashcraft has seen the new Street Fighter movie, The Legend of Chun-Li. Didn't like it much. But what do film critics think of the flick, starring Kristin Kreuk, Chris Klein & Michael Clarke Duncan?

They are, unsurprisingly, not fans.

The film currently has a Metacritic rating of 21 (out of a possible 100), while even more damningly, it has a Rotten Tomatoes rating of ...00%. Meaning that every single review of the film the site has collected has given it the thumbs down.

Here are some of the review highlights.

The Onion AV Club:

The problems with Street Fighter: The Legend Of Chun-Li began with the casting of dead-eyed, sleepy-voiced, charisma-impaired automaton Kristin Kreuk.

I can't remember the last time I watched an actor fail to walk into a room convincingly, but Chris Klein does it. Look for a YouTube montage of his Street Fighter performance to pop up any day now.

Entertainment Weekly:

Don't be fooled by the low grade: This sequel-in-spirit to Jean-Claude Van Damme's 1994 dud doesn't even succeed in being memorably bad.

On a related note, how'd it do at the box office? About as well. Despite opening on 1136 screens, it only made $4.65 million, meaning every theatre that screened the movie only pulled in an average of $4,093.

Oh dear. Ah well, look on the bright side, Capcom. The Lost Planet movie can't be any worse!
