Chun-Li Won't Be Too Sexy


Posted May 8, 2008 - By Stephen Johnson

The upcoming Streetfighter movie focuses on Chun Li (played by Kristin Kreuk), but don't think this is just a ruse to make a super-sexy flick. According to Justin Marks, the film's writer, Li's moves are about fighting, not bedding down.

"First, I've never seen a successful action movie (in my mind) that blatantly sexualised its female lead and succeeded for its audience; Catwoman, Elektra, the list goes on and on," Marks told JoBlo.

"Then I think back to The Terminator, or possibly my all-time favourite movie, Aliens, and I think of how Ripley is depicted in that film. She's a tough woman, but not because she came from a place of wearing tight pants and beating up men. She's tough because she had this core emotional story about a life that could have been and never was. To me, that's the way you write a woman in these kinds of movies."
