Bison, the ruthless leader of the international terrorist organization Shadowlaw, has been desperately searching for the greatest fighter on the planet for years. He finds it in Ryu, a young wanderer who never stays in one place long enough for Bison to find him. He does, however, get a fix on Ken Masters, an American martial arts champion who studied with Ryu as a child under the same master. Meanwhile, Major Guile of the United States Army is forced to team up with Chun Li from China in hopes of apprehending Bison and putting a stop his international ring of crime. Written by
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 »
In the American version of this film, in the scene where Chun-Li is briefing her Interpol superior, profiles of Sagat, Balrog and Vega are shown. In Vega's profile, under the name section, it is written "VEGA" but under the comments section, Vega is referred to as "Balrog." This is because "Balrog" is the actual name of the character that is known as "Vega" to American audiences. In Japan, Vega is known as "Balrog," Balrog is known as "M. Bison" or "Mike Bison," and M. Bison is known as "Vega." What the characters are called by in Japan are the original, actual names for the characters in the Street Fighter franchise. When editing this film for American audiences, the editors successfully changed Vega's profile so that "VEGA" appeared in the name section instead of "BALROG" but missed making the same edit in the comments section of the profile.

Pure Street fighting action, dag nammit! HADOKEN !
Street fighter the animated movie is a well animated fight fest that serves as a superior companion piece to the revolutionary fighting game on which this anime is based .
Its silly plot is full of holes and would make little sense to a non street fighter fan but not to worry, the story is merely an excuse for street fighter characters to dragon punch and shin kick the hell out of each other, and its in this department that the film delivers on a huge scale.
The battles that these characters have are truly incredible to watch! Well thought out, well animated and just astounding to gawk at, they work just as well as the best live action fight sequences out there. The two stand out fights are a masterfully executed battle between Chun li and Vega that will make your jaw drop and the final climatic battle of the film which wraps everything up in an adrenalin pumping fashion .The animated fighting on display here more than makes up for the films faults like its annoyingly slow establishing shots that seem to go on forever.
Street fighter the animated movie is first-rate animated action that does its source material justice and allows you to contemplate on how good that garbage live action version could have been.
Knowledge gives this : 4 out of 5 (It makes me want to throw fireballs baby!)
