I think it's less him defending the good qualities and moreso his distaste for the lack of nuance or critical thinking in popular online criticism. No video of his exemplifies this more than his video about Annihilation and the countless videos trying to analyze the ending as a plot to be solved, rather than the movie simply being an exploration of theme.
It was such a terrible movie it was amazing. It also got just about everything wrong from the games. Balrog uses a gun, Gen uses fireballs etc. it was all wrong. The most amazing thing is the most accurate portrayal of a street fighter character in the movie was Vega played by Taboo of the Black Eyed Peas. How did he end up being the most accurate!?
Edit: In checking the movie's wikipedia page I just found out that Bison's daughter was named Rose. Why would you bother to include her in such a wrong way?
I've have to check this out even though all I've ever seen of this movie is the best of Chris Kline video posted. I'm not about to go watch Legend of Chun Li so I have better context for this video, but it's almost disappointing.
I remember at the time that the screenwritter Justin Marks name was popular among nerd circles, since he was working on this movie, Voltron, He-Man and a Green Arrow movie called "Supermax", and those who dared to review the scripts online said they were good. Then the Chun-Li movie was released...
