That shows you just how much I know; I had no idea that people were attempting to make another Street Fighter movie. And to show you how much I still don’t know, the movie was released in theaters this weekend! Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li stars Kristin Kreuk, Neal McDonough, Chris Klein, Michael Clarke Duncan and Moon Bloodgood. So pretty much, this movie has actors that used to be in popular movies?

The film is the second live action movie in the Street Fighter series, and it follows the character Chun-Li, played by Kreuk. The film score was done by Stephen Endelman, who has composed movies like The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain, Tom and Huck, and Evelyn. Besides those scores, I haven’t been too familiar with Edelman’s work. My snap judgment before putting this score album on was that this was going to be filled with lots of over-computerized music. That wasn’t the case at all. This score actually surprised me! It’s got lots of sweeping sounds, Asian drumming/motifs and doesn’t sound bad at all. It’s the movie I’m worried about. Out of the Stephen Endelman scores I’ve heard, this is one of the best ones I’ve heard.

Bottom: A decent score but I’m sure this movie is going to suck.
Notable Tracks: Chun-Li Vs Bison, Impress Me, Going Home
