Return of the Street Fighter avoids the trap of many sequels, by actually simplifying procedures. The plot is much easier to follow and there are less characters to concern yourself with. Return of the Street Fighter is completely filled with action sequences, the plot is laid out early on to give us 80 minutes of ferocious action. It's all really well shot and Chiba brings his inescapable talents to the role. There are some stranger aspects to the film, such as outrageous examples of super strength and agility. Chiba can now hit people so hard that their eyes pop out. He even stabs people with guns. It's more tongue in cheek than the original. The twists are really unexpected, but sometimes reintroduce characters for no reason, other than yet another fight scene. The film also uses two fight scenes from the original as flashbacks. However, they are the ENTIRE scenes. It's not as though this film was lacking action scenes.
