In the American version, Guile is after Bison, in the original Japanese version he is really after Vega. This is due to the fact that names had to be changed for legal reasons. The characters of Balrog, M. Bison, and Vega were changed about. In the Japanese version what Americans know as Bison is Vega, Vega is Balrog and Balrog is M. Bison. See more »

Well, I must say I LIKED THIS FILM!!! The drawings were great (manga, what else?), and combined with the magic touch of manga artists for dramatic scenes and action, this is a PIECE OF FINE ART. A lot is being revealed and we are finally aware to a little of the characters' background (if you want more try Street Fighter Zero or Alpha, which is the same movie...). This movie should be replaced with that dumb variations that had been made before (with all doe respect to Mr. Van Dam, Ryu still kicks his ass).
I would very recommend watching Street Fighter Zero after this.
