Itís obvious that early in the production, he realized that this was not going to be his finest hour no matter what he did, so he chose to indulge himself and turn his usual carefully-measured intensity into full-on scenery chewing. Itís fun to watch him cut loose and forget everything he ever learned about good acting, as we will see shortly."''

[[NoIndoorVoice He howls]], [[EvilLaugh cackles]], and [[MilkingTheGiantCow waves his arms around wildly]]...

You can either play it straight and [[{{Narm}} sound like a tool]] or you can go the route that Raul Julia went in the ''Street Fighter'' movie and give a performance that includes a large order of ham with a side of cheese. Iím not happy with Payneís performance, but this guy had to go through this movie and ''Dungeons & Dragons'' in the same year.

Unlike the filmmakers, who couldn't figure out exactly what kind of movie they wanted to make, Raul clearly decided that ''Film/StreetFighter'' was meant to be utterly ridiculous. He may have gotten this idea from the scene in which he transforms a man into a giant green troll doll with Kool-Aid, or it may have occurred to him during the five-minute sequence wherein he tries to blow up an invisible speedboat with a ''Super Street Fighter II'' arcade stick."''

Kate OíMara hamming it up in [[ShouldersOfDoom insane shoulder pads]]... O'Mara turns every appalling line of dialogue into a gem by not taking any of it seriously. I know you are going to think Iím mad but imagine a universe where the the Rani joined the Doctor on his adventures and [[DeadpanSnarker commented dryly]] on his prattish actions all the time. The show would have become something unrecognisable and I would be needing incontinence pads for each subsequent story. Watch the climax to episode two where she pulls off her wig like a bad drag queen at the end of a long night of cabaret and then gets accosted and tied up like a {{panto}} villain, every move exaggerated to let the kiddies know that she isn't really in any danger.
