3.0 out of 5 stars You'll either hate it, or you'll hate it Aug. 23 2004
To begin with, I think it's important to say that I'm a huge Street Fighter II fan -- I have been for years. Recently I acquired the Street Fighter Alpha movie from this website, and as a fan of Street Fighter II, was somewhat shocked.
The storyline is plain at best. Ken meets up with Ryu in Japan, only to discover their former master has been killed. Suddenly this kid shows up, tells Ryu he's his younger brother, and that they're from Brazil (yes, even though Ryu is Asian, he's in fact Brazilian). Meanwhile, the "dark hadou" has been haunting him for months, and it will soon overcome him...
In comparison to the Street Fighter II series, this movie is garbage. The animation isn't even that great -- again, I preferred that of Street Fighter II. No, I don't buy that Ken's a blond, although it's interesting how in Alpha he suddenly turns into a pervert. So, the storyline gets 2/5 stars, 'cause I'm a nice guy.
The one thing I didn't mind was the voice acting. Ryu's and Ken's voice actors both do a terrific job, and everyone else is also very good. Ken's voice actor, Steven Blum, plays Dhalsim in the original Street Fighter II, but he definitely grows as an actor between II and Alpha. 4/5 for the voice acting.
Despite the voice work, however, Street Fighter Alpha is not a movie that even the most zealous Street Fighter fan should bother with. I was actually embarrassed to have watched it. Save your money.

2.0 out of 5 stars Good dvd, BAD movie May 20 2004
Very dissapointed with how this movie turned out. I don't where the script writers came out with younger brother angle , but it doesn't work. Rule One : Don't rewrite histories of established , tried-and-true ,bread -and-butter characters , geez! Some scenes are very reminiscient of Akira and Dragonball Z , only very hacknyed and lame. Too much groaning and powering for SF in my opinion. The whole movie kinda floats around with barely any screentime for all those new Alpha fighters. The movie SHOULD have been based around a tournament , with nice, lengthy fights..only nauseating or incredibly short fights here.
And the character designs are ugly and very strange..I loved the art in Street Fighter II V...how can they drop the ball on a feature film?!
On to the DVD, video and sound quality are excellent , and I was pleased by the extras (interviews with the REAL cast for once). And the requisite trailers..if you are SF fanatic or completist , then go ahead pick it up. Otherwise , look elsewhere.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Way It Should Be! Dec 11 2003
By A Customer
First and foremost, I love the Street Fighter series, ever since Street Fighter II: World Warrior was made available on Nintendo, ahhh memories.
The thing that set Street Fighter apart from anything else were the strength of the characters, diverse yet loveable over time. All had very interesting histories that had led them to this point, (hence the creation of the current Udon comics).
I have to say i love this movie. This film is the way it should be. I'm such a sucker for films which combine an element of destiny and spiritual self discovery.
I think i'm definitely a minority when i say that this animation is better than the animated effort before it, Street Fighter - The Animated Movie. That film had good combat sequences but failed miserably in delivering a story, i mean come on it was so cheesy, it hurt. And the voice acting... OH MY GOD, that was sooo bad!
Anyway, that is in the past and now we have Street Fighter Alpha, it's just soo perfect, adopting a very compelling story, although i do believe it loses its way towards the end.
The writers have done great job with the script, whereby the characters convey themselves the way should be, along with the voice acting which is also perfect. It really is, the script and voice acting make the characters likeable (i particularly like the way Ken was intepreted), we can really understand their positions. Unlike the previous film which made the characters appear arrogant and stupid, it made me hate the characters more than anything.
Also the animation is very nice, with very "arty" moments such as Ryu's blood washing away in the rain, these moments really add to the film as whole.
Sorry i know i'm long winded, but the ending is also worth noting, i don't think many people like it, but i always like an ending with some question attached and climax.
All in all, a great film
This coming from a loyal and huge Street Fighter fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars great Anime May 21 2003
This anime has some very nice backgrounds and such - the water training scene in particular has a zen peacefullness to it. The animation during the fight sequences is generally done very well and there are a few moments that are awesome. The drawing style is unique and I really liked it. The story is pretty weak - typical street fighter "with great power comes great responsibility" I guess. Some of the fight scenes are really spectacular - though I found myself waiting a bit too long for them sometimes. I understand that the whole movie cant be fighting, but when you name a movie Street Fighter I just wanted a little more. All in all I would say this is easily as good as every other street fighter movie made and I appreciate the inclusion of Akuma, though it would be nice to see Guile and Dhalsim play larger roles. Down, Down-Forward, Forward+Punch.
As far as the extra features go, I dont know, I never watch that crap. If you are really looking for an awesome anime, this is definately one of them, but if you havent seen Ninja Scroll or Vampire Hunter Bloodlust then I would say get those first.
