Trailer Probe : Street Fighter : The Legend of Chun-Li

Items of geekity interest should be only two minutes long, because trailers make us laugh. They make us cry. They work so hard to make us happy.

Trailer Probe rates the geek explosion content, how much our cortex is combusted with a volley of geekitude, and dork disengagement level is reasons you won't dig it.

Street Fighter : The Legend of Chun-Li

Geek explosion content: "Rrraaaah! Aaaah!" -- Balrog

The trailer is in Japanese, but the language of flying kicks is beautiful and universal.

Flying kicks! Every movie should have flying kicks.

There's a street!

There's some fighting!

Why would you fight Michael Clarke Duncan? He'll stab you with a telephone pole.


Dork disengagement level: There is no way they can top the final fight scene in the Jean Claude Van Damme version. There. I said it.

But the new M. Bison wears a nice suit, so at least he classes up the joint.

Excuse me. Where are the goofy Street Fighter video game costumes?

Balrog must wear yellow gym shorts and boxing gloves or I riot.

Also, the whole cast better pose at the end.

Geek explosion level: 600,000 geek parts per million. Video game movies are fun.
