Col. Guile and various other martial arts heroes fight against the tyranny of Dictator M. Bison and his cohorts.
Filming conditions in Thailand were harsh at times. The weather was hot and humid, causing everyone to lose weight, which contrasted with scenes shot in Australia where the weather was fine and everyone quickly recouped their lost weight. Due to a threat of a coup, the military closed all roads, so the cast and crew had to be transported by high-speed boats and often arrived on set soaking wet. The building used as the headquarters of the Allied Nations in the film had a tin roof and was riddled with holes: when it rained, the noise was deafening, and when the sun shone, sunlight would seep in through the holes, making filming difficult. This caused delays that director Steven E. de Souza often had to solve by cutting out entire scenes from the screenplay.
Colonel Guile! Greetings!
Colonel Guile: He took the bait. Trace that signal, stat!
Bison: Why do you address a fellow warrior with such disrespect?
Colonel Guile: Warrior? You? How many doctors and nurses have you killed this week? How many children have you orphaned?
Bison: You will choke ...
In the scene where Ryu and Ken are confronted by Chun-Li, Balrog and E. Honda; Chun-Li pulls a knife on Ryu. In the ensuing commotion the knife brushes Ryu's arm and it bends, clearly showing that it is a prop knife.
There is a scene after the closing credits: M. Bison is revived by his computer and restarts his plans for world domination.
The title sequence is different, depending whether you watch the International version (distributed by Columbia, the Street Fighter logo just appears after the Columbia lettering) or the US version (distributed by Universal, the Street Fighter logo appears over the Universal globe).
