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.Written by

In the American version of this film, in the scene where Chun-Li is briefing her Interpol superior, profiles of Sagat, Balrog and Vega are shown. In Vega's profile, under the name section, it is written "VEGA" but under the comments section, Vega is referred to as "Balrog." This is because "Balrog" is the actual name of the character that is known as "Vega" to American audiences. In Japan, Vega is known as "Balrog," Balrog is known as "M. Bison" or "Mike Bison," and M. Bison is known as "Vega." What the characters are called by in Japan are the original, actual names for the characters in the Street Fighter franchise. When editing this film for American audiences, the editors successfully changed Vega's profile so that "VEGA" appeared in the name section instead of "BALROG" but missed making the same edit in the comments section of the profile.

Even though you two amuse me, I must conclude this game. I have engagements to keep, and I can't be late.

At the end of the ending credits of the Japanese cut is a title card reading "COMING IN SPRING 1995 / JEAN CLAUDE VAN DAMME / RAUL JULIA / STREET FIGHTER / Directed by Steven E. de Souza / NOW FILMING IN HOLLYWOOD" See more »
The PG-13 has a lot less blood, is approx. 94 min. and has less harsh language. The Mature version is approx. 96 min., has a ton of blood, especially when Ryu fights Sagat at the beginning, has a lot of harsh language, and added footage to the Vega vs. Chun Li sequence. There are shots of her in the shower and more to the actual fight. See more »

I am a big fan of the Street Fighter II video games. If anyone wanted an alternate source for the title other than the game and the live action movie then this is your great alternative! All of the classic characters are in it! M. Bison, Ryu, Ken, Blanka, Zangief, T. Hawk, Chun-Li, Sagat, Vega, Guile, E. Honda, Fei Long, Dhalsim, Cammy, DeeJay, Vega, and Balrog! In My opinion all of the characters look exactly like they do in the video game. The male characters look super and the female fighters look absolutely gorgeous! The animation is so crisp and clean! I have read that are two versions but I have seen the American version. This film may not be suitable for youngsters because of the minor language such as "hell" and "damn" and blood coming from the characters' wounds. Another is a very surprising scene where Chun-Li is taking a shower and then she puts on a night gown type shirt and some underwear and when she fights Vega you see this and even though that this may be uncalled for in an animated feature but I thought it was cute and animated very realistically. More on that in a second. Another thing was the music. Really music though out the entire film! M. Bison and his men were really introduced properly. It was like this was a real movie. One thing to explain is when Chun-Li was in her apartment minding her own business after she got out of the shower and Vega just came barging in. I really liked the fight between Chun-Li and Vega! That scene was really animated well. Another is near the end when M. Bison, Ryu, and Ken are fighting. I believe that the fight scenes in this feature are some of the greatest fight scenes I've seen and I'm commenting on an animated movie! The fighting in the animated feature is simply amazing and I really liked how realistic everything was! If you like the Street Fighter II video games and the Street Fighter live action movie with Jean Claude-Van Damme and the late great Raul Julia (which by the way I think Julia's role as M. Bison was arguably his greatest ever!) then I strongly recommend that you watch this movie now!
