Not for fans of the first anime feature, 13 July 2001
Author: mc12000 from London

It's true that movies adapted from arcade games have never had an original or involved storyline. All of them rely on action and special effects to carry them through . However, each movie has it's own style. Mortal Kombat followed a similar storyline to 'Enter The Dragon' where a group of warriors travelled to a deserted island and kicked the bad guy's butt. Street Fighter has stayed on the anime canvas all the way through this (apart from the s*** which featured Jean Claude Van Damme which I personally do not count as a movie) and the first feature made in Japan was a great success even though there wasn't a great storyline. The thing that did it for me was the character portrayal and the relationship between Ryu and Ken. I remember being so disappointed when they did not fight each other. In addition, the touching flashbacks to their past really added to the film's magnetism. As many a SF2 fan would know, the original Japanese script and soundtrack was taken by Manga and translated into English. The soundtrack was completely wiped and replaced with grunge metal. Imagine my disapointment when I found that SF Alpha contained the same sounding grunge. It became apparent to me that this was a Manga-produced project and it really shows in the difference in drawings. For instance, Ryu does not look Japanese at all. Whoever designed his facial profile should be lynched and whoever decided to give him blue eyes should be slashed to pieces as well. Ken, on the other hand, looks far better (though by no means an improvement on his original look in the first movie). Aside from all this, the film focuses far too much on Ryu's personal struggle with is powers. They really should've gone with sticking to a good guys vs bad guys storyline. A few characters from the Alpha game are featured but are cameo roles to make up the numbers. Chun Li is also present but the animators seem more interested in drawing her crotch than anything else. To summarise, disappointing storyline, disappointing animation and even worse soundtrack. Manga should've left this to the 'real' experts in anime.
