Street Fighter: Assassins Fist was a movie I started with some excitement. I love the Street Fighter game series even to this day with Super Street Fighter IV. The diverse characters ranging from aliens to giant metal robots were a great addition to the game!
Now onto the movie. The movie begins with some acting that is not the best, but as you watch the movie and the actors get more comfortable with their roles, you see a definite improvement of acting quality. The movie has quite an interesting plot line. You begin with seeing the characters get better at fighting with the many awesome training montages. You see there two heroes battle many times as part of their training. The fight sequences are very well choreographed and lack no bravado.
The story evolves round the concept of a mystical energy called Ki. There is dark Ki and good Ki, the main characters Ryu and Ken are trained in the art of balancing their Ki.
You see the main villain mid way through the movie in a series of flashbacks. You begin to see his transformation as he practices the power of dark Ki. he grows stronger but also more and more disfigured as he uses it.
The two heroes depart from their country to America to complete their training. This is where the movie ends.
I would severely recommend this movie to anyone who loves fighting movies and people who are a bit nerdy like myself. I really enjoyed this movie and I cant wait for Street Fighter: Assassins Fist 2 to come out.
