Storyline

Shadoloo's leader, Vega (Bison in the English version), sponsors an unpublicized fighting tournament. Shotokan devotees Ryu and Ken revive their rivalry, while foolish former-Shotokan student Dan seeks revenge on Sagat, the man that killed his father. US Army Colonels Guile and Nash (AKA Charlie) attempt to stop Vega's ways, alongside countless other fighters fighting for their personal reasons. Did Ryu find the ultimate challenge? What happened to Nash? And what is the story behind the evil entity known as Gouki (Akuma in the English version)...? Written by Trevor-12

Not the kind of movie I hoped for.
17 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

Well like i said this is not the kind of movie i thought it would have been.I have been a big street fighter fan since the starting of the video game while it was still on arcade.But of course i just couldn't just stop at that.I was browsing through one of my friends collection of Videos and i saw that she had both the first movie that came out and most of the series.Well of course i went nuts about them and she allowed me to borrow the first movie.This movie i watched over and over again because of some of the best fight scenes i had ever seen at that time.I will admit that i now own both and i watch the first one that came out a lot more instead of Alpha.I found Alpha very slow and the story just didn't fit quite right (compared to the true story behind Street Fighter).If you are looking for a good movie with an all right story line but lots of fighting in an Anime,i suggest "Street Fighter the Movie".Alpha is ok in some sense but i suggest you stick to The movie i just listed and the series(which is quite funny and a good one).I have seen a lot of Anime movies and lots of normal movies.If you would like any info or advice on a movie feel free to email me.
