Street Fighter Fan Film Puts Hollywood to Shame

Posted by Tim Sheehy on May 11, 2010 in Fandom, Videogames |

How is it that fan films have gotten to be so good? I’m at a loss as to how this trend came about, but I’m not about to complain. Street Fighter: Legacy by Streetlight Films, is one such project. After years of witnessing Hollywood butcher my favorite games, its really refreshing to see fans take matters into their own hands. While it’s not quite feature length, the production is top notch and really worth your time.

More often than not, movie studios are far more concerned with their pocket books than staying true to source material, much to their own detriment. For example, 20th Century’s recent flop, Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, performed so poorly at the box office that it was out performed by its critically-panned predecessor, Street Fighter: The Movie. While I wouldn’t mind paying to see a film like Street Fighter: Legacy in theaters, I hope short films such as this one can convince companies like Capcom to keep the major studios at bay.
