The Fatal Fury franchise is full of promises and this first animated
feature takes the characters beyond the video game boundaries. It's
cool how the fighters (Terry Bogard especially) are written as being
normal and sensitive rather than always butch, evil and trying to start
a fight. The characters in the Street Fighter series were too much like
this but Terry Bogard always appears innocent and his adult form still
looks like the child he was at the beginning.
But my fave character in Fatal Fury was always Geese Howard. He is such
a cool bad guy and live action bad guys should be more like him. Andy
Bogard and Joe Higashi are amusing supporting characters and make great
sidekicks for Terry.
The ending is a little too quick but when you consider that there is a
follow up and a great animated movie it ain't so bad. If you like this
one then the others should give you a good fix.
