Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Street Fighter

M. Bison is an international drug dealer and a despot looking to make quite a bit of money in the ransom business. He kidnapped a handful of humanitarian countries and doesn't plan on releasing them unless certain conditions are met specifically a 20 billion dollar price tag for the hostages. Now it is up to Guile, the leader of a special branch of the Allied Nations armed forces to bring the tyrant to justice. The only problem is Guile only has three days before Bison starts killing hostages. So he is going to need all the help that he can get.

As luck would have in an underground fighting tournament two martial artist Ken and Ryu are about to sell fake weapons to one of Bison's top guys, Viktor Sagat. And Guile crashes the party and throw everyone in jail including the two con men/martial artists. Guile meets with Jen and Ryu in private to discuss a plan of action. The three hatch a plan to infiltrate Bison's organization via gaining Viktor Sagat's trust,part of the plan is hatching a prison break and freeing Sagat. Everything is going well as ken Ryu and Sagat escape back to Bison's secret lair, but that is quickly foiled by a news reporter attempting to assassinate Viktor Sagat and Bison with a news truck and a bomb. The news reporter does manage to startle the dictator and Sagat but ultimately her bomb destroys some weapons.

Ken and Ryu are forced to fight the angry journalist named Chun Li and her two buddies in hand to hand combat. The duo win and the plan is back on as Viktor Sagat trusts the two; fighters. The hostages' fate is in the hands of 6 willing combatants who will need to put all of their special skills o the test in order to defeat the criminal mastermind.
Best part of story, including ending: This was a terrible adaptation of the video game of the same name. The story elements are largely disposable action movie of the week material.

Best scene in story: There weren't any particularly good scenes as most of the fights were poorly choreographed, and the films biggest flub is when Ken and Ryu shoot fireballs from their hands which amounted to nothing more than a Kodak camera flash. This film is toxic.

Opinion about the main character: There was again nothing to truly like about Guile. He is a standard cardboard cutout action hero, there wasn't anything notable about him.
