The new M. Bison is...

Published at: March 20, 2008, 2:22 a.m. CST

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here.

That's Neal McDonough who you'll recognize from MINORITY REPORT and RAVENOUS and he'll be the new M. Bison for the currently in production STREET FIGHTER movie. He follows in the footsteps of Raul Julia... let's just hope he doesn't repeat that same history. This is a weird project. You have a cast that ranges from a Smallville actor (Kristin Kreuk as Chun-Li) to Michael Clarke Duncan as Balrog to Taboo from Black Eyed Peas to Chris Klein. And now McDonough. I don't know what to make of this one. I guess it can't be any worse than the 1994 movie, right?

    1994 movie is genius

    by HEADGEEK

    as was Raul Julia's brilliant performance! And it was partly written by the great Paul Dini... it is a camp classic!

    by Mattyboy122

    Sorry man. Haha. I almost didn't post at all, since I have little/no interest in another Street Fighter movie, but I saw the opportunity to be first in a talkback (something I've never been before), so I just went for it. Anyway, this guy's a good actor (Ravenous rules), but I doubt this film will break the mold of video game movies sucking big time.

  • March 20, 2008, 2:28 a.m. CST

    can't be first

    by master bitchfist

    in a talkback if you write that long of a message pal, go for a FIRST....well first, then type your actual message ;)

  • March 20, 2008, 2:28 a.m. CST

    It's cool EXCEPT!!!!!

    by Nefariouss

    ravenous rules???? seriously??? that must be one of THE worst movies I have ever seen (and I even seen lot's of shitty international movies) As for this movie, I like this guy, but it all rests on the shoulders of Ryu and Ken really, then need to find the right actors....with the right story (it can actually be good, at least in MY mind).

  • March 20, 2008, 2:32 a.m. CST

    I actually sat through the original in a cinema.

    by foreverguardian

    ...and I've regretted it ever since, apart from whenever Ming na Wen was on screen ;) Is Guile going to 'kick that bastard Bison's ass' in a Belgian accent this time?

  • March 20, 2008, 2:38 a.m. CST

    No one shall ever beat Raul Julia

    by Prossor

    in tghat cheesy movie he pulled it off surprisingly good and hilariously believable. GAME OVER!!!!!!

  • March 20, 2008, 2:50 a.m. CST

    If only...

    by uVa

    ...Jean-Claude Van Damme reprised his role as Guile. Because that casting made sense, ya know?

  • March 20, 2008, 2:51 a.m. CST

    Not all Video Games Movies Suck..

    by CeejayNightwing

    But this one is bound to BIG-TIME! Why, Why, Why would you cast Kristin Kreuk in anything except maybe a Smallville movie? She is a walking stick-insect, she has no body or curves to suggest one; and they pick her to play Chun Li, a character who has all the curves and the thunder thighs to emphasize them! That alone tells you where this film is going.. to box office hell.

  • March 20, 2008, 3:01 a.m. CST

    McDonough is too good for this shit

    by Mullah Omar

    So was Raul Julia. I hope they both got paid shitloads because there is no way this can be satisfying on any other level.

    As a Street Fighter fan...

    by Satyrgreen

    This thing seems like it's just taking the same road as the first film. I know many of you aren't really "into" the Street Fighter storyline but it is a really cool good vs. evil martial arts saga(as cool as that can be anyway). My understanding is that this film is going to be based on Chun Li and all the other characters will take a back seat. Now I know I'm going to sound like a crazy man but that is like making a Star Wars movie and centering the whole thing on Leia, and then leaving Luke and Han out completly. The Street Fighter story is about Ryu and Ken, but hey lets cash in on the "hot chick kicking ass" as our lead thing. Anyway after posting this mammothly nerdy comment I'll probably never get laid again... P.S. Check out the Udon Comics Street Fighter series ad see why this is a pretty good occult martial arts story.

  • March 20, 2008, 3:07 a.m. CST

    CHRIS KLEIN!?!?!!!!

    by second cousin of phartegod

    See, that's just seppuku right there. Hiring Chris Klein on any movie, no matter what size role, is like shooting yourself in the head with a shotgun. There's no chance of this movie being successful. Ever. Unless Van Damme and Chuckie boy "I Eat Babies" Norris have anything to do about it.

  • March 20, 2008, 3:08 a.m. CST

    WHAT THE FUCK

    by bottombrick

    1994 movie was genius? I can't believe my eyes. I'm not at all picky when it comes to crappy action fare, I loved Mortal Kombat, and really dug that street fighter anime with the 90s rock soundtrack, but the fucking 94 live action street fighter, are you serious? that shit KILLED Raul Julia (HORRIBLE casting by the way, M.Bison is diabolical, but he's also a semi-roided out psychotic street-FIGHTER, not an eloquent mouth piece with some gadgets), not to mention killed my main man Jean Claude's career. Ryu is supposed to be the protaganist anyway (and that ryu was a pussy) not some american douche bag - whether or not he can make tricks with bricks. This is probably the only movie in the history of movies that would have been better if that cracker who directed Mortal Kombat hacked it out.

  • March 20, 2008, 3:12 a.m. CST

    And Raul Julia did the movie

    by bottombrick

    because his kids liked the game, so that was what satisfaction he took from the role, till it killed his ass. satyrgreen = knows what hes talking about.

  • March 20, 2008, 3:14 a.m. CST

    Jean Claude Van Damages everything he stars in..

    by CeejayNightwing

    You'd have to be insane to want to cast him again as Guile, he's not Blonde and STILL can't speak English properly! How is he convincing playing any part as an American? He's about as convincing as Arnold Schwarznegger playing Mr Freeze! I'm with Krack - Thomas Jane would have made a great Guile.

  • March 20, 2008, 3:28 a.m. CST

    Satyrgreen is actually right...

    by CeejayNightwing

    This film being titled Streetfighter: The legend of Chun Li.. Seems to be going off on the wrong path just like that 1994 bollocks with Jean Claude Van Act-less and Kylie Mini-woman. Streetfighter is predominantly a story about Ken and Ryu, the other characters are basically formed around them. This film is doomed again because it's trying to redefine something already time-honoured and definitive. Besides, is this game still even popular enough for anyone to care about another shit movie? I'd be far more interested in a Tekken or Sould Blade/Calibur flick.

  • March 20, 2008, 3:33 a.m. CST

    Heading way off tangent, again...

    by Crawing

    Still don't understand why they didn't just do it in the style of Bloodsport. Why wrap the whole thing up in some military mission bollocks? Just set it in a fighting arena and keep it simple. Cool OTT fights with OTT characters.

  • March 20, 2008, 3:34 a.m. CST

    Best M.Bison I can come up with

    by bottombrick

    is Sergi Lopez (Captain Vidal from Pan's Labyrnth). That fascist cunt could be dark as fuck, and still bring the right sort of physicality to it, if he's limber.

  • March 20, 2008, 3:38 a.m. CST

    You are so right about the bloodsport angle

    by bottombrick

    Thats who Ryu is, except actually japanese and a little less humble, but totally dedicated to his training/fighting. Guile is a heavy, trying to deal with his issues and get revenge but doesn't have pure fighting spirit.

  • March 20, 2008, 3:43 a.m. CST

    by acorvey25

    It suffers from its low-budget but has some effective and memorable sequences (not to mention a supremely kick-ass score).

    by Varakor

    about the first street fighter flick was Raul Julia's performance as Bison. Other than that I try to wash my mind of the first flick. I have high hopes about the second. I mean Kristen Kruek, plus can it get any worse? Can it!!?

    by NomoredirtyjokespleaseweareYanks

    One of my favorite lines ever in perhaps the worst video game adaption ever. Harry mate, Super Mario Brothers is a camp classic. Streetfighter is so bad its plain fuckin awful. I actually had a friend who had seen it at the movies talk me into going with him for his second viewing. I have never forgiven him and still use it against him to blow his film opinions out of the water.

    by Shermdawg

    by Series7

    Street Fighter G.I.Joes ruled. This guy makes a decent cast, he is in the up coming 88 minutes. Would've rather had Jürgen Prochnow from like 10-15 years ago. I have a foundness for the original though, mainly because its one of the few movies I saw in theaters with just my dad. But if Andrew Bryniarski is still in shape they should seriously bring him back to play Zangief. He was probably the only part of the first movie that worked. I mean Zangief was a joke in the game anyway.

  • March 20, 2008, 7:17 a.m. CST

    Street Fighter? Not Street Fighter II, but the original Street Fighter in the arcade? Where all you could be was Ryu or Ken?

    The 94 movie was like a parody of video game movies

    by SilentP

    Before video game movies were even being made. Seriously, it's so weird. It genuinely seems like they were trying to parody the movies that would come out later. I suppose it's also possible they were trying to parody the game? Either way, I've never been able to figure out what exactly they were thinking when they made that thing, but it is indeed a brilliant, hilarious movie.

    I'm not going to make a prediction about this one until I see a trailer or screen shots. Kristin (Kreuk) can probably pull off Chun Li, but.. the rest of the cast will seriously have to impress me. I think directors are trying to "batman begins" the comic book movies now. Not make them cartoonish, but cast quality actors in the roles and make them more real, more believable.

    The only way this movie could work is if it was a ballsout hardcore kung fu flick. But, this second-rate non action cast proves this is an impossibility, it proves we will be treated to a bland and generic franchise ripp off. I thought Van Dammes Knock Off was a camp classic, the exploding shoes were hilarious. And the explosions were punctuated with some weird green dust, and ofcourse there was the never ending treat of watching Van Damme act.

    by TheRealRatigan

    The first STREET FIGHTER movie should have starred Michael Dudikoff as Guile, not least because the character in the game was modelled on Dudikoff in the Cannon movie AMERICAN NINJA. They should have left out the second string characters that didn't belong in the same story together (I'm looking at Dhalsim, Balrog and E.Honda from WORLD WARRIORS, DeeJay and Thunderhawk from SUPER SF II). Dolph Lundgren was born to play Sagat. M. Bison should have been Ralph Moeller (BEST OF THE BEST 2, GLADIATOR, BEERFEST). Lose the foreign coup and liberation by the 'Allied Nations', led by 'General Guile', and most of all the global live news device. But, I guess that would have it another movie totally. Which would have been fine.

    Headgeek, Street Fighter 1994 movie is...

    by BadWaldosRevenge

    ...my favorite guilty pleasure movie. Sure, it's terrible, but the movie doesn't take itself seriously and it's one big parody movie. Raul Julia trying to blast the good guys up in the water using the modified Capcom JAMMA arcade controller. Zagrief asking idiotic question to himself in one embarrassing scene, as though it's scripted to humiliate the burly actor. Guile magically floating beeline from the elevator to air-kick M Bison. The transformation scene with Blanka and his behaving moronic. Yes, I'd like to believe the movie revels in self-parody, acknowledging it's made for a quick BO cash-in like TMNT the movie in 1990. At least Street Fighter is better than the awful Double Dragon the movie. Harry, I suggest finding Double Dragon comic book series published by Marvel circa 1991 (#1-6) -- believe it or not, it's an entertaining comic that is a dozen times better than enduring the atrocity of Double Dragon movie bomb.

    I doubt you'd get a reputable director to come anywhere near this. And no one would dare take it very seriously. If the guy managed to make at least that ONE cool little FPS sequence in Doom there's no doubt he can make at least one decent fight scene in this, a movie based on an arcade fighting game.

    no storyline there either, but the fight scenes beat anything in the live-action abomination. especially the end fight - ken vs ryu vs m.bison. of course, then there's that naked chun-li vs vega scene. <p> japanese animator with pencils(no cgi back then) has more imagination in one brain cell than hollywood fight choreographers have in their entire collective heads. thank god woo ping has crossed over. <p> the '94 movie is "genius"??? watched enough kungfu movies growing up here in asia, i'm glad i can at least see when a fighting movie is on opposite end of genius.

    by cloudrider`

    just found that's the movie title. i have only but one response: what the hell is wrong u, hollywood!!!! <p> 14 years after the first abomination, and still they're going for another shit. ryu IS and has always been the main star. i can understand them choosing guile to be the star back then, but in the age when jet li and jackie chan have crossed over to the american mainstream, in the age of crouching tiger, can't they now believe that a movie with an japanese/asian as the lead be marketable? <p> apparently not. and then there's this from wikipedia: "Jean-Claude Van Damme, who played Guile in the 1994 live-action Street Fighter movie, confirmed that he was approached and offered a part in this movie but he turned it down because according to him, he is now being careful in picking parts." <p> i dont know what's scarier, that last sentence, or the fact that they even thought of approaching van damme in the first place. like we need a reminder of the old movie . "genius" is defintely the minds behind this new movie.
