Terry is a tough, mercenary, master of martial arts. When an important business magnate dies, leaving billions to his daughter, the Mafia and Yakuza try to hire Terry to kidnap the daughter. When they refuse to meet his exorbitant price, then try to kill him to conceal their secret plans, he promptly offers his services to protect her. Much ultra-violent martial-arts fighting action, as expected, ensues. This also includes a subplot of a family's bloodfeud with Terry over a disputed debt.Written by

Gekitotsu Satsujin Ken/The Streetfighter(1974) is a movie that relies more on pure action and violence then on plot. The main character is an interesting one because he's a very complex person when it comes to understanding his reasons for his job. It doesn't have the grace and polish of a Bruce Lee film but then not many Kung Fu or Karate flicks are on the level of Bruce Lee's movies. Romeo Must Die(2000) must have been influenced by this especially with the scene where a man is killed while the film is using X-rays to display this sequence. The Streetfighter(1974) is to Martial Art films as the Lone Wolf & Cub films are to the samurai genre. The best way to watch this movie is in its uncut and letterbox version.
