All the lightning-fisted thrills of the worlds wildest combat video game series explodes onto DVD in this brilliantly animated, sensationally supercharged adventure, Street FighterTM II: The Animated Movie. This all new unedited and uncensored version now boasts a stunning new 5.1 surround sound mix of the equally popular soundtrack. In the not too distant future, civilization is under attack. Leading the forces of darkness is the evil mastermind Bison, who is determined to capture the minds and bodies of the worlds greatest fighters for use in his manic plan to conquer the world. The only people on Earth with the potential to stop him are Ken and Ryu, two powerful legendary martial arts warriors. Together they face the fights of all fights. The final battle of good against evil is about to begin!
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

This easily trumps the dvd from 2006.
Not only does it contain the same english dub from the UK as well as the Japanese dub found on that release, but it also contains an english dub with the original background score!
On top of that, it contains three mixes of the UK dub with the rock score, but it also contains a music only track of the japanese score!
The third mix of the english UK dub is the censored version found on the 2000 and 2006 DVDs, the street fighter anniversary collection for the playstation 2, and on movie networks like HBO and the like.
The first two tracks offer the original dub found on the VHS versions of the movie when it was released by sony wonder and renegade home video back in the 90s in two different audio mixes with varying levels of profanitty.
It should be noted that the new english dub with original score does use the exact same lines from the other dubs, so all fighter names are the same as in those versions.
Still, this is the closest we'll likely ever come to a completely faithful version of this film in english.
Though the feeture presentation is more than worth the asking price, the extras aren't half bad either.
First and formost is the PG13 cut of the film first released on VHS; long opening logos included.
It was also remastered with the same HD footage as the main feeture, and it even has an option to watch it with Japanese score.
Aside from that we also get an alturnate take real of English lines, a history of the different versions of the film, trailers in English and Japanese, art galories and more.
We even get clean end credits as well as home video opening credits.
Overall, the best version of the film to date!
Once you get your hands on the settings you can pick any of the various audio tracks to customize your experience. You've got the cut..uncut..unrated and UK unrated and Japanese and what else can you expect? They also give us an English dub with the Japanese score if you want to do it that way. You can even customize the subtitles a little too. (Which have been made more accurate)
This team painstakingly went through and gave us a real uncut feature. Think about the cut versions audio not lining up with the uncut film... yes..they fixed that too!
I had the vhs when I was a kid and it felt like a lot of blood and Chun-Li scenes were curiously, possibly edited and missing and they all definitely were.
This is a good paced movie with good action and a real western direction. There is a little drama built into it to give the story a bit more meaning.
This is serious fan service. They have special features on the disk explaining all of this, as well as facts, artwork used by the animators, trivia and more fun stuff.
It comes with a sleeve cover that collector's will appreciate and it is not indicated here on Amazon. Support this product and buy it!
I paid just under 13 for this and it is a steal at that price. And since, I've seen it dip under 11.50. Usually this goes for closer to 20 and it's worth it at that price.

As a dad I knew exactly what I needed to do in this situation. So I ordered the Blue Ray, ripped it to the Plex server, and proved him wrong! As an added bonus, the quality of the Blue Ray was incredible.
IMPORTANT - Make sure you rip the version with a slightly shorter duration if you plan on sharing the movie with the entire family.
Seems I will wait another decade until someone decides to remaster this, and release in it's 1:33:1 original aspect ratio.

However, these are minor gripes and I throughly recommened you buy this great piece of manga film-making!
Puede que venga carente de contenidos adicionales, pero lo que importa es la película y merece totalmente la pena. sobretodo si eres amanta de la saga de lucha.
contiene 2 audios:
1- el primer audio contiene el idioma español y las músicas cambiadas recibidas en usa y en europa (la mejor versión)
2- el segundo audio, contiene el idioma japonés con textos en española y la música original que se lanzó en japón. para mi gusto algo descafeinada.
De las pocas veces que podría decir que algo que tocaron los americanos, en vez de estropearlo como siempre han echo al cambiar bandas sonoras en los anime, por una vez, hicieron un trabajo excelente.
