Street Fighter

'Street Fighter' (1994) Box office: $33,423,521 Why the game succeeded: The game changed the industry in the arcade and on the then-emerging home console market. The mix of fighting styles, strategic play and awesome displays of power made characters such as Ryu, Ken and Chun Li household names -- at least in gaming households. The movie? Game over: Despite the presence of acting dynamo, the 'muscles from Brussels' Jean-Claude Van Damme, the movie's serious take was not serious enough for gamers. It was Raul Julia's last role, but luckily not the role for which he'll be remembered.
