    Does it bother anyone that she doesn’t look even remotely Chinese?

    It doesn’t hatter if she’s half. Fans will still complain she doesn’t look the part. Hell, I’m trying to be open minded, but don’t believe this movie will be good.

    This has “Elektra” written all over it…

    It’s sad really she’s not a bad actor (she just doesn’t look the part), but the Van Damme movie made any chance of a live action Street Fighter movie becoming a succes near impossible.

    Chun Li never looked that asian, she does actually look the part as much as anyone i can think of. But yeah the movie will probably suck, still it wont have anything too do with likeness.

    It’s been a while since I played Street Fighter but isn’t one of Chun-Li’s legs thicker than all of Kristen Kruek? :O

    Here’s hoping they spent money on fighting training and choreography and don’t resort to nausea-inducing quick-cuts. I’m looking at you Underworld >:\

    yes, especially as the franchise went on and the characters became more and more stylized, Chun-Li developed legs that could crush a u-boat.
