This movie was average at best. The only reason I watched it was to find out what happened prior to the SF4 game. Even then they don't tell you very much. The storyline was similar to the other street fighter movies, fithers are dissapearing around the world and its up to the gang to find out who's behind it. What made it really hard to watch was that animation really sucked. I wactched the englished dubed version and the dub was actally pretty good.

I preferred both of the Street Fighter Alpha movies over this one. I think they had better action, story and art.

Jiro Kanai (JK)- "Hey guys, I have a brilliant idea! Let's make an anime adaptation of Street Fighter...without any fights!"

Studio 4 Executive (SE)- "What?"

JK- "Hey, we'll even go one step further, taunting our audience by setting up fights that are about to happen, ONLY FOR THE CAMERA TO CUT AWAY, or for both combatants to peacefully part ways."

SE- "Are you insane? What will be the attraction for the audience, then?"

JK- "Well, instead, we'll fill the film with an hour of pseudo-philosophical bullshit, childish refrains about justice and protecting life, and some of the most laughably bad "scientific" explanations, plot holes, ...
