After what seems like the shortest wait period for a film ever, Street Fighter’s The Legend of Chun-Li will be kicking into theaters on February 27th. And though I’m not much of a video-gamer, Kristin Kreuk’s casting as the legendary Capcom character had me counting down all the way til opening day.

That is, until I saw the trailer. Man, does it suck. I was excited about KK taking on a role that could see her catapulted into super-star status, but this potentially catastrophic movie seems more likely to cause a career crash.

I kind of saw it coming though. After all, the director’s credentials (Andrzej Bartkowiak) include such cinematic achievements as “Doom” (starring the Rock) and “Cradle to the Grave” (with Jet-Li and DXM) and nothing noticeably successful as far as I can tell.

But being  the true KK fan that I am, I do still intend to watch this movie. Yes, the legit way. Peep the trailer.
