Everything you could ever wish for in a Street Fighter-anime
"Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie" is an anime that packs everything you could ever wish for in a Street Fighter-anime, and it is everything that the movie starring Jean-Claude Van Damme should have been. I think of myself as a fan of the glorious Street Fighter videogames, and especially the original Street Fighter II videogame. This movie brings you brilliant martial-art-sequences and it really captures the atmosphere of the videogame. Pretty much all of SFII`s characters appear in this movie, and although Ryu and Ken are the main characters, every character from the game that is present here gets to fight. An excellent musical score is also worth noticing. This is in my opinion the finest pure martial-art-anime available today. This movie`s intro, where Ryu fights Sagat, is probably the best intro ever for an anime, and it really makes you expect an extraordinary film, and this movie more than delivers. Everyone with an interest in action-anime will love this, and it is completely perfect for the fans of the videogame-series. So, if you fancy watching an anime where you get to see old favorites such as Ryu, Ken, and Chun-Li go head-to-head in explosive battles against villains such as Balrog, Vega and Bison, then this is your movie.

10/10

Quotes

Sagat: Please master, give me the chance to prove myself against Ryu.
M. Bison: Remember, you are a Shadowlaw warrior now, Sagat. Put these commonplace thoughts aside.
Sagat: But sir, we're talking about fighter's pride and my reputation here!
M. Bison: Fighter's pride, how dull. ...


Goofs

After Ryu kicks the guy in the face driving the getaway car in India, he looks back to see where Ryu is with teeth missing, then it shows him driving away with all his teeth back.


Crazy Credits

At the end of the ending credits of the Japanese cut is a title card reading "COMING IN SPRING 1995 / JEAN CLAUDE VAN DAMME / RAUL JULIA / STREET FIGHTER / Directed by Steven E. de Souza / NOW FILMING IN HOLLYWOOD"


Alternate Versions

The DVD released in the US by Manga Entertainment contains both the English and Japanese versions of the movie, presented on a double-sided disc. The English version on side 1 is the same one that was shown in the UK and is uncut, except that it is missing a brief shot of Chun-Li's exposed breasts during her shower scene. The Japanese version on side 2 however, includes the shot. Both versions were obviously taken from different sources, as the English side has artifacts of a PAL-NTSC transfer while the Japanese side was taken from a native NTSC master.
