I can't be worse than the Van Damme version. Then again, life's pretty unpredictable.

Based on that news alone? Like fuck it can't.

Why oh why oh why oh WHY couldn't they have not just hired a Chinese fucking actress??? It's not like there aren't a fair few that could've done the role SOME justice.

I mean, for one thing, Chun-Li isn't the type of character who looks like she's going to cry as soon as someone looks at her.

The Van Damme version will hopefully remain untarnished.

I wouldn't mind seeing her in a Chun Li outfit...

Goddamned Justin Marks... that guy is living the dream.

Kristen is a great choice for the role. Can't wait to see that costume...

Ummm... yeah.

This would not have been greenlit were it not for the writer's strike.

And, much like most of Capcom's in-house art style, she and most of the other Asian characters were drawn with fairly western features. Going with a totally Chinese actress would, if anything, go against the image of her presented by the games.

Agreed. Chun Li doesn't really look all that Chinese-- Kristin's a great choice.

And again... the outfit.

Terrible choice in so many ways. What, were Maggie Q and Zhang Ziyi and hundreds of other Chinese actresses (with the acting and fighting chops) sick?

Wow. This is one of those roles that will ruin her movie career huh? Oh well. At least we get to see her in a Chun Li outfit.

I'm not sure how I feel about her playing Chun-Li.


Then again...I'm not sure how I feel about making a Street Fighter movie and not having it focus on Ryu and Ken.
