An Amazing Documentary About the Street Fighter Who Can't Kick

This clip, which debuted over the weekend at fighting tournament EVO 2011, isn't one of those joke documentaries, with crummy acting and a couple of cheap gags. It is, in all seriousness, a serious documentary. About Street Fighter's Balrog.


When I say serious, it's serious! This is a look at the life and times of the man, the events and the people who shaped him and turned him from a thug boxer into a straight-up thug.

Don't let the sloppy punches in the opening throw you: there is real quality here. And also Arsenio Hall.

The guy who played Balrog's/Mike Bison's father was an astonishingly good actor for such a low budget short film.

Give that guy some old guy minor parts in feature films.
