Street Fighter II: The Movie review

Down, Down and Forward, Forward and Punch... Hadoken!

If ever you needed more proof of how far off the mark Hollywood's live-action Street Fighter adaptation was, all you need to do is take a look at this Japanese animated film. It may not add up to much more than a series of fight scenes, but somehow it still manages to boast more plot and characterisation than the Jean-Claude Van Damme version. This Full HD release is utterly devoid of bonus features, but fans can take heart that the AVC 1.85:1 encode is the best the film has looked on any home entertainment medium, and the LPCM 2.0 audio (in both Japanese and English incarnations) is suitably punchy.
