A Quick Tip by woopak_the_thrill

  • Feb 19, 2013

Wanted to see something that I did not need to think about so I streamed this (legally online) to re-watch. (I don't think I ever finsihed it the first time)

I have to say that the movie was probably intended to promote the game, but gosh it made other movies made to plug a video game look like Oscar contenders. This is not a sequel to Street Fighter II: the animated movie

Sure, it had some moments of decent action, but the problem was the plot execution that was wrapped around to set up those action scenes. Nothing is really explained, and the plot was riddled with holes. It all focuses on Ryu, Ken, Chun-Li and Shun, and while that wouldn't be a bad thing, the way everything revolved around them was shamelessly executed. It also stops just when it was about to get interesting.

Well, if you are bored and a Street Fighter fan, better see STREET FIGHTER 2 The animated movie instead. [1 1/2 Out of 5 Stars]

Look at the photo below, even Ryu is crying over the bad quality of this movie LOL!

Pros: Animation was nice and Ken doesn't suck.     Cons: Oh where do I beginÂ…     The Bottom Line: Ken is cooler than Ryu.     Plot Details: This opinion reveals minor details about the movie''s plot. There are some things I never thought I’d say about an anime movie, but holy crap that was bad.      If you’ve read any of the other reviews, then you might already have an idea as to what I’m going to say. …

About this movie

Wiki

The immensely popular STREET FIGHTER series, probably best known for its appearance on gaming consoles, has also become a first rate anime. Here, Ryu and Ken find themselves unhappily reunited as they meet up after the death of their master. Ryu's life is turned upside down even more when Shun, a boy claiming to be his long lost brother, presents himself. Doubtful, Ryu begins to believe the veracity of Shun's claim when he sees the boy fight in a martial arts competition. Unfortunately, the boy is soon kidnapped by the Shadowlaw organization forcing Ryu to undergo a painful journey just as his confidence is waning.
