Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this is a review of the theatrical release and not the "unleashed and unrated" version available on DVD that may include more questionable content. This film is wholly and entirely based on the popular Street Fighter video game series -- a new edition of which just hit stores. Parents also need to know that despite the PG-13 rating, there's a great amount of gun play and lethal violence in the film; while (mostly) bloodless, the film's plot still involves a body count in the dozens. Parents also need to know that this film is a love letter to vengeance and wrath, as a young woman fights her way across Asia to find and punish the man who imprisoned her father.

Sexual Content

Some scantily clad dancing and posing. A female crimelord is implied to be a lesbian, and her desires are exploited so an undercover infiltrator can get her alone and beat her up. Some kissing and suggestive talk.


Extensive violence. Some of it's athletic, like the film's martial arts scenes. Some of the violence is fantastic, as characters manifest spheres of concentrated energy they can use as weapons in combat. Some of the violence is realistic, including gunplay and bare-handed neck breaking. Multiple gunshot deaths numbering in the dozens. A man commits a bare-handed cesarean on his wife, tearing his child from the womb in an implied but never directly shown act of violence. Steam pipes, bamboo, saw blades, bricks, fruit, swords, tri-clawed metal gauntlets, bottles, bats, chains, and flaming chains are all used in fight scenes. Some blood and gore. Bombs. Decapitated heads.


Occasional use of strong language, including "s--thole," "ass," "bitch," "damn," and more.

Social Behavior

Extensive discussions of vengeance and revenge. A criminal evicts residents from undervalued lands in the name of profit. Individuals take the law into their own hands. Extensive discussion of father-daughter bonds.


While no brands are mentioned by name, the film itself is inspired by the plot and characters of a popular, decades-old video game series created by Capcom, who also co-produced the film.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Characters drink beer and hard liquor.
