Video Game/Movie Inspiration: Street Fighter Alpha Colosseum Stage
In the original IP man there's a part where a gang comes into the village to challenge the masters of the martial arts schools and in one scene there are a group of students in white Gi's performing what can only be described as the Hadoken move! Very cool! Video Games inspiring Movies. Today I found a clip from The Way of the Dragon where Bruce Lee fights Chuck Norris at the Colosseum and it dawned on me that I had seen this fight before, but not in a movie but in a video game, Street Fighter Alpha!
Being a fan of Capcom's flagship Fighting Game franchise and fan of Kung Fu films this was a very cool discovery! It's a shame SFA didn't have Fei Long in the roster.
Extra bonus points for even getting the cat in the stage!
