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 »

Please master, give me the chance to prove myself against Ryu.
Remember, you are a Shadowlaw warrior now, Sagat. Put these commonplace thoughts aside.
But sir, we're talking about fighter's pride and my reputation here!
Fighter's pride, how dull. The world is now your arena not the street.

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.
