THE STREET FIGHTER:

Takuma Tsurugi is a very violent and deadly martial arts master who will commit almost any crime for money. In the opening scenes, we see him audaciously break the condemned murderer Tateki Shikenbaru out of prison by impersonating a monk, then using an ancient martial arts technique called the "oxygen coma punch" that causes delayed unconsciousness. When Shikenbaru faints while ascending the gallows, prison officials rush him to a hospital, giving Tsurugi a chance to free him at the expense of an innocent ambulance driver and a couple of guards. However, Shikenbaru's brother Gijun and sister Nachi, who hired him for the job, don't have enough money to pay him, and, when he finds out, he throws the Gijun out a high window and sells Nachi into sexual slavery.

The plot thickens when the wealthy oil tycoon Hammett dies, leaving his daughter, Sarai, as his heir. Tsurugi is sent to retrieve her from the Seibukan Karate dojo, but is soon betrayed, and the rest of the movie centers on the conflict between Tsurugi and the mob as they try to acquire Sarai's new fortune. Also, the film has several side plots: a heated feud between Tsurugi and Shikenbaru, who owes Tsurugi his life but is nonetheless bent on avenging his brother and sister; Tsurugi's new-found respect for Kendō Masaoka, a Buddha-like karate master who bests him in single combat; and the relationship between Tsurugi and his Singaporean sidekick, Rakuda Zhang, who provides both comic relief and a moment of sorrow.
(from Wiki)

Followed by, RETURN OF THE STREET FIGHTER & THE STREET FIGHTER'S LAST REVENGE.

The 1st film to ever receive an "X" rating for violence.

For my money, there's no greater badass than Sonny Chiba as the Street Fighter.

The SISTER STREET FIGHTER is another series whose title was changed to cash in on the popularity of THE STREET FIGHTER.

Chiba appears in the 1st SISTER film briefly, but as a completely different character.

Separate SISTER STREET FIGHTER thread coming soon!

Just watched this again today. Damn this film is good. The X ray punch is awesome, as is the moment closer towards the begining where he knocks out all of that guys teeth.

But it's hard to argue that this isn't the greatest of all...

The Street Fighter and The Street Fighter Returns were two of the first kung fu films I ever watched. Pretty much still my
favorites. I still have yet to see the last one. Does it equal up to the other two?


I've still never seen any of Sonny Chiba's other flicks, what would be a good one to grab up next?


PS massive bummer you don't have that poster anymore, it rules.

It has Reiko Ike! But I've heard it's quite toned down which is a shame.

I just found a pretty cheap dvd set on amazon with the last one on it. I have the other two, but the set also has
sister street fighter. So I'm going to pick it up.

STREETFIGHTER'S LAST REVENGE is pretty good. It's a little more cartoonish, but I like it.

SISTER STREETFIGHTER really isn't connected to the STREETFIGHTER series and Chiba doesn't play 'Terry Tsurugi.

BUT..

SISTER STREETFIGHTER does kick 31 flavors of ass!
