'''''Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li''''' -- the second live-action film based on Creator/{{Capcom}}'s long-running ''Franchise/StreetFighter'' video game series, but not a direct sequel to [[{{Film/Street Fighter}} the first]] -- tells the story of Chun-Li Xiang (Kristin Kreuk), a ten-year-old piano/Wushu prodigy who has her young world shattered after the crimelord [[BigBad Bison]] (with the help of his [[ScaryBlackMan Scary Black]] [[TheDragon Dragon]], Balrog) kidnaps her father and whisks him off to parts unknown. After the death of her mother seventeen years later, Chun-Li -- now a concert pianist -- receives a mysterious scroll that tells her to go to UsefulNotes/{{Bangkok}}. Once there, she meets Gen, [[TheAtoner a former partner of Bison]] and leader of the mysterious Order Of The Web; Gen offers to train Chun-Li in preparation for her inevitable showdown with Bison.

* CanonForeigner: Cantana, Maya, Fen, and others.
** On Maya's case, it can be argued that she may or may not be Crimson Viper (since Maya is also Viper's real given name).

* {{Expy}}: Maya Sunee is almost certainly a stand in for [[VideoGame/StreetFighterIV Crimson Viper]]. They are law enforcement agents that share a first name.

* {{Irony}}: Bison looking and acting similar to Geese Howard from the ''Fatal Fury'' series. Geese had once killed Terry's father and in turn was unintentionally killed by him, who then raises the boy Geese had abandoned. [[spoiler:At the end of this movie Bison falls out of a building much like Geese, but only dies from Chun Li breaking his neck as his daughter watches. Chun Li then asks Nash to take care of her.]]

* NotWearingTights/MovieSuperheroesWearBlack: Nobody wears their colorful outfits from the game. The closest is when Chun-Li [[MythologyGag briefly dons a blue dress as part of a disguise]].

* PlotHole: If Bison has lived on his own in Thailand since he was a young boy, why he still speak with a (terrible) Irish accent?

* BuryYourGays: [[spoiler: Cantana is beaten to death by Bison after being seduced by Chun-Li]].



* MoodWhiplash: Many reviewers noted that the movie bills itself as an [[DarkerAndEdgier edgy]] and more "realistic" take on Street FIghter'', despite stuff like Chun-Li using KiAttacks and Bison transferring part of his soul into his unborn daughter.

* MoodWhiplash: Many reviewers noted that the movie's attempts to present itself as a DarkerAndEdgier and more "realistic" take on the franchise were rendered moot by having Bison magically transfer the good part of his soul into his daughter, and giving Gen and Chun-Li the ability to use KiAttacks.
