    The Myth

    ★★★

    This film has such a splendidly crappy cover image that I avoided it for a very long time. It's good fun though, just about pulling into mid-tier Jackie Chan territory.

    Lets not fool ourselves here - Street Fighter is a piece of shit.

    - Van Damme's inspirational call to arms.
    - Van Damme calling Bison…

    It's an emotional rollercoaster, that's for sure. A slow start quickly gives way to an adrenaline packed, emotionally wrenching horror movie. Although to be more accurate, this ain't no ordinary horror movie; it's an action movie, a disaster movie & a family drama all in one.

    Zombies on a train is such a cool idea (Horror Express already proved this) - I mean, where do you escape to?…
