12 Rounds, Street Fighter Chun Li, and Transmorphers

Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li

I don't know if the people behind video game adaptations try to make crappy movies or if it just happens by hiring low caliber writers, directors, and actors - but it seems to happen a lot. This new version of Street Fighter is just the same old crap. I have a hard time believing that the company that makes the games would sign off on something like this - but Capcom(the video game company) has their name on it, so they must approve. First - Chun Li isn't very Chun Li like and neither are the rest of the characters. The fact that the script can't even get the characters right is a bad start - then the acting is absolutely terrible which doesn't even help it get off the ground. The script or plot is not even interesting and manages to put you to sleep. No - I did not like Street Fighter.

12 Rounds

I actually didn't watch this one - just seemed like a bad flick. The description reads - When New Orleans Police Detective Danny Fisher (John Cena) stops a brilliant thief from getting away with a multimillion-dollar heist, the thief's girlfriend is accidentally killed. After escaping from prison, the criminal mastermind enacts his revenge, taunting Danny with 12 rounds of near-impossible puzzles and tasks that he must somehow complete to save the life of the woman he loves.

Transmorphers: Fall of Man

There is this little company called The Asylum which manages to make extremely low budget flicks that capitalize on people that go to the DVD rental places and pick up the wrong film. This movie is cleverly titled after the hit film Transformers Revenge of the Fallen that is currently kicking butt in Theatres. So - this film is sort of the same thing but the worst thing you could possibly even try to watch. It's worse than Street Fighter and that's bad. Really bad. This isn't the only flick this company makes that tries to lure people's money based on the clever titles and attractive box art - they also do rip-offs to flicks like Terminator and monster movies. If you want to see how awful this movie is - it's worth a rent - otherwise run away!

That's it for this week - Next week is more sub-par releases with Push and Knowing.
