10 Best Fighting Game Movies

Sagat and M. Bison from Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie


Let or not it’s mentioned that for somebody who grew up within the ‘80s and ‘90s, discovering a trustworthy cartoon adaptation of a online game property was not straightforward. Hyperlink and Simon Belmont have been unlikable sexual harassers. Mega Man was a extra annoying sidekick than Scrappy Doo. Mario and Luigi teamed up with Milli Vanilli. Energy Group was…a factor. Once we acquired an animated film primarily based on Road Fighter II, it was mind-blowing. This was a film the place the very first scene was Ryu tearing Sagat’s chest right into a bloody gash because of a well-animated Shoryuken.

There’s quite a bit happening on this film, however on the identical time, nothing is happening. By this level, there have been 17 characters within the numerous Road Fighter II video games, and out of doors of a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it Akuma cameo, it feels the necessity to embrace each single one in every of them. Some get minor roles, like Cammy and Dee Jay. Then there’s Zangief and Blanka, who struggle one another for no purpose aside from for the sake of giving them one thing to do. Even Ryu vanishes for an enormous chunk of the runtime.

As soon as the whole lot funnels into the third act, this film is nice. And the sooner struggle scenes are straight fireplace too, together with the memorable Chun-Li vs. Vega brawl. Although the film already feels true to Road Fighter II, it’s even higher whenever you notice that it’s all speculated to be a prequel to the sport itself.

Or at the least I hope so. In any other case, all Sagat will get to do is get his ass kicked by Ryu and get chewed out by Bison.

Goro from Mortal Kombat


The celebs really aligned for this one. Mortal Kombat Mania was at its peak, so it is smart that this film was a retelling of the primary recreation’s story with added points from the second recreation, all whereas hyping up the arcade launch of the third recreation. CGI was such a novelty in Hollywood within the ’90s that even when it appeared primitive, it nonetheless appeared innovative on the time. It was the right time to launch this film.
