Audience Reviews for The Street Fighter's Last Revenge

Just a notch lower than the first one! This is my second favorite of the series. Ends ambiguously, so maybe one day the Street Fighter will return...

Teruo Ishii's sequel flick starring Sonny Chiba is a worthless piece of crap. The action is so fake, the plot is barely interesting and the ending is so strained and predictable. Don't get me wrong, Chiba is a solid martial arts actor, but man, this flick is a pile of crap. The pseudo kung fu style zoom in shots are spliced together so poorly I honestly have to wonder why they even bothered making this film to begin with. In fact, I'm not going to even bother to waste any more words in this review.

This film seems to divide a lot of Street Fighter fans. There are a lot of changes from the originals, but for me, it kept most of everything that was great. The action/fight scenes are still magnificent. Really showing off the talents of its stars. The plot is still simple but gets complicated with the obligatory double crossings. This film lacks a real awesome villain. With some illusionist with lasers and a sombrero, he's hardly threatening. Especially since he can't land a punch. Luckily, there are plenty of other great characters, my favorite being Reiko Ike as Aya. A real tragic character whom uses her sexuality to get what ever she wants, whether it be double crossing, or for her own security. Her downfall is her paranoia that everyone wants to kill her. Some people will be perturbed by the constant use of masks and gadgets, as it takes on more of a spy film rather than that of an assassin. Though it's true the violence is toned down, there are still some flourishes of Tsurugi's malicious killer instinct.
