Chris Sims: Welcome aback to our analysis of 1994’s universally reviled Street Fighter, everyone! Aback we aftermost larboard off, Commander Guile and Kylie Minogue were ambience off to Shadaloo in a stealth boat, while Ken and Ryu were buddying up to a agglomeration of maroon-suited pseudo-vipers. Truly, it is agitative times.
Matt Wilson: Not abandoned were Guile and aggregation advancing M. Bison’s Secret Base, they were accomplishing so in absolute affront of the world’s governments. Because aggressive law is great!Chris While Guile and Cammy are off committing war crimes, Bison and Chun-Li are gearing up for what is easily bottomward the distinct best arena in the movie. Chun-Li has been dressed in a Player-2 Palette Swap of her video bold accouterments (or, you know, abutting enough), and starts annual her agent adventure while Bison walks in and changes abaft a screen, abutting to a hatrack featuring his Affronted Dictator chapeau in assorted styles.
Chris: All of this takes abode in advanced of an oil painting of Bison benumbed a horse, which I would pay so abundant money to own.
Matt: All the different-colored hats and Chun-Li’s accouterments assume to be absolute bright nods to palette swapping and how accustomed it was in affronted amateur of the time. If abandoned annihilation abroad in the cine analogously seemed to beam at video-game-savvy viewers.
Chris: Chun-Li recounts how her father, a simple agriculturalist (because of advance he was) was murdered by Bison in one of his beforehand aggressive coups, and while Ming-Na Wen is wringing as abundant as she can from the material, Raul Julia is bond himself a fruity cocktail with abandoned the aboriginal balmy interest, which is great. She gets to the end of her story, and he delivers the best band in this (or possibly any) movie:

Matt: Well, we got to the band and you didn’t bang off into amplitude like C. Jack hit you with a meteor admixture (that’s a deep-cut Street Fighter EX advertence for you guys). I’ll alarm that a victory. Do you anticipate Bison is lying about not animate about it, aback he can define the day of the week, or does he artlessly apperceive the funniest day is Tuesday, appropriately abject the archetypal ball aphorism of specificity?
