Spot the Shameless Plugs: SNK is all over the movie - 1) The ring used in the Joe Higashi vs. Hwa-Jai match; 2) Neo-Geo Land, where Terry first bumps into Sulia; and 3) the 18-wheeler truck that collides with Terry's bike. See more »
Considering the source this actually made a cool movie.
Yes, the inspiration for this anime movie was a video game that was basically a "Street Fighter" clone that for me was not the most entertaining fighting game ever made. Here you have character from that game in a fight with a madman that is after the armor of mars, which of course makes its wearer very strong. During the course of the adventure you get to see the fighters display their various moves and even have an appearance by a character in a castle whose part in the movie makes him nearly pointless. You get to see two of the characters fall in love and you get a somewhat bittersweet ending. They do a bunch of moves to where they yell out their special attack which is sort of like a Dragonball Z show which also helped me enjoy this one more even though I was not particularly fond of the game. The character are rather interesting too, as they add much needed depth to the characters as opposed to just a bunch of dudes fighting in tournaments. So all in all a nice anime based on a not so nice video game.
