Editorial Reviews

Based on the video game, Street Fighter II: the Animated Movie (1994) is the first feature in the popular continuity that includes a second animated film, a TV series, an OAV, and a live-ction feature. With physiques that Mr. Olympia would envy and moves that would shame Bruce Lee, Ryu and Ken Masters rank as the world's greatest martial artists. They face a dire challenge when Vega (Bison in the English dub), the psychic master of the criminal syndicate Shadowloo (Shadowlaw), attempts to turn the world's top street fighters into his agents. The minimal plot exists only as a framework for the over-the-top martial arts battles. Director Gisaburo Sugii stages many of the fights at night in an effort to heighten the drama, but the results are so dark, it's difficult to see what's going on. Fans of the series complain--justifiably--that the English voices sound stiff and hokey, although the dialogue is hopelessly silly. The double-sided disc offers both the English and Japanese versions; the latter contains about two more minutes of violent fighting. (Rated PG-13, suitable for ages 17 and older: graphic violence, violence against women, nudity, alcohol use, profanity, ethnic stereotypes) --Charles Solomon

4.0 out of 5 stars Uncut,, at least on the Japanese side July 18, 2006
First, let's get the obvious out of the way. I'm sure the main reason the majority of guys are going to buy this is because of the shower scene. Let me just make one note about it and move on. The english version has an EXTENDED version of the shower scene. There is still one shot that's missing (just to be exact). However, the Japanese side of the disc does indeed have the UNCUT version of the shower scene. So feel free to go nuts, take screen shots etc. It is in here.

Now on to the rest of the review. This release is in everyway superior to the original US release.

It has the UK version of the movie (which is vastly extended over the US version) and the Japanese (completely un-cut).

The menu system is also a vast improvement (since the original DVD didn't even HAVE a menu system). The extra's, while sparse, also make it a cut above the original release.

The only thing I could possibly fault this release with is that it's only the Japanese version that's completely un-cut, while the UK version is merely extended.

Even that's not much of a fault. I don't typically watch my anime with the Japanese track, but with this one, I'll make an exception.

Once you see the Japanese version, you'll realize just how bad the english dub is. The dubbing team had to add to the dialogue to fit the mouth-flaps. This made for a lot of (for a lack of a better word) stupid dialogue that made some scenes go on painfully too long. It killed a lot of the flow of the movie. The original Japanese dialogue fits the flow of the movie better, and the voice acting is simply better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sorry, Van Damme November 21, 2000
When Jean-Claude Van Damme came out with the live action movie, "Street Fighter", a lot of people, especially video game fans, were disgusted. This movie was a spoof of a video game, not a translation. However, this tragedy would be avenged with the release of "Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie". Unlike the live action film, this movie is extremely intense, decently parallel to the arcade story, and is overall a good movie.
In the story, the evil organization known as Shadowloo is unleashing an icy grip over the world powers. Under the leadership of M.Bison, scientists Brainwash expert martial artists to assassinate world leaders. Bison's latest target is the legendary Ryu, who had recently defeated his top henchman, Sagat. Kidnapping his best friend and respected rival, Ken Masters, Bison plans to either add Ryu to his army, or destroy him. With the aid of Air Force Captain William Guile, Interpol agent Chun Li, and Sumo Wrestler Edmond Honda, Ryu wages a war against Shadowlaw, and prepares for a showdown with his best friend.
The fights in this movie are spectacular, as the fighters from the smash hit video game execute signature moves. One of the most dazzling fights is the match up between Chun Li and Vega, which is very "Matrix"-like (ironically, this movie was released five years before "The Matrix"). There's eye candy in the movie, too. (Keep your eyes peeled for a cameo appearance by Akuma.) With a dynamic storyline and a cutting edge soundtrack, "Street Fighter II" is a masterpiece.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super Cool Anime EVER!!! October 16, 2004
Format:VHS Tape
This the best anime I've ever seen!! Sure it's slightly edited but, who cares (It was a tiny scene with Chun-Li in the shower and some stronger cursing.)? The best scenes are Cammy's 1st cameo (Her 2nd one is quite boring.), Ryu and Sagat's fight, Ryu and Fei Long's fight, and (My personal favorite...) Vega and Chun-Li's fight. The voice acting is actually quite good (Except for Dee Jay, he's supposed to sound Jamaican, not American!) and Honda is quite funny. However, there is another American dub, but with more cursing (Dee Jay always ends his sentences with a curse word and Vega called Chun-Li a word that rhymes with witch when she hits him in the face during the fight.)and surprisingly the "uncensored" cuts out Chun-Li's nudity (But I really don't care because I'm a girl.). Although many people hate the music, I think it's cool (Especially the song Chun-Li plays while fixing her hair and her fight with Vega.). All 'n' all, this movie is very good and should go out and buy it or rent it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great action Anime. A real fireball. December 6, 1999
Format:VHS Tape
There's been many Anime's based on fighting games, including Street Fighter, Fatal Fury, Tekken, etc... But, "Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie" is probably the most well made one out of the group. Exceptionally well drawn characters, incredible fight scenes, coherent story, there is a lot to like about this Anime. If there is anything that stands out, it has to be the awesome fight scenes. This Anime fully takes advantage of the fact that it is an animation, and not a real movie with real actors, and choreographs some spectacular moves together. Obviously, the reason I mention this is other Anime's have failed that simple task and churned out some real dull fight sequences. Street Fighter II: The Animated Movie, however, is a real eye-candy.

Like any other 90's movie, it's going to have some corny punch lines, but is how the real movie should have been. Thumbs up

Realistic and Street Fighter 2. Two things I would guess you do not normally associate together.

But that is the draw here, they try and makes the fights seem real. Read more

Cut or Uncut?
Yeah I was wondering if the English version here has the scene at the beginning where blood squirts all over after ryu dragon punches Sagat. The blood was edited out of the anniversary edition.
