Storyline

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.

Top-notch animated fighting fest

Street fighter: The Animated movie

As a huge Street fighter fan, I was more than gladdened when I heard that Manga had decided to produce an animated movie based on perhaps the greatest video game series of all time. When I say more than gladdened, I in fact mean ecstatic! I hit the roof! Locking myself in a room for 6 months, I refused to look at any pictures of the film for fear of disappointment and as it finally hit the shelves, I was first in line to receive a copy.

As you may have guessed, this film is an action movie, and although the plot itself is a little on the cheesy side, the fight sequences are the best your likely to see in an animated film. The animation itself is very impressive, with some superbly drawn characters (Sagat, Ryu, Ken and Bison) and each of the world warriors looks exactly as you would want them to. The music score, although a little heavy metalish, is brilliantly used in sync with the fights. It really gets you're the adrenaline pumping. The dubbing is usually very good and 90% of the voices being perfectly chosen. I say 90% because the voice of Ryu is badly selected. His dubbed voice is way too American for a `Japanese fighter.' Bison on the other hand has the best voice in Manga history and is in my opinion the greatest animated bad guy ever to grace my screen. Yes, he's even better than Roau the Conqueror in Fist of the North Star. Why? Because not only is Bison insidiously evil, but also he's tremendously funny. For example, when Ryu darts off to save Ken, Bison chuckles `Well, aren't you the big He-man.' Amazing! A bad guy who uses pop culture references! Yes, this film is a masterpiece of Manga entertainment, and apart from Akira, is the only animated movie to come close to perfection. So I'm a little biased, but what ya gonna do?

Hail Capcom, Hail Manga and Hail Bison! Psycho Crusher!

Overall: 7.5/10

As ever Manga succeeds in delivering a film that aims to please. True it may not be the emotional Manga film ever, but then again that wouldn't be Streetfighter would it? This is action all the way, and a bloody good laugh it is too!

Note: Do not under any circumstances confuse this with the action Movie starring Jean Claude Van Damn! This film is a work of genius, not a joke!
