What can say-- Sonny Chiba is incredible, the fights are amazing, and this is simply a classic series. If you haven't seen this, you're truly missing out. This is the collector's edition, too, so the bonus bits are awesome, too!
THIS IS A CLASSIC! IF YOU'RE INTO THESE TYPES OF MOVIES, IT'S AN ABSOLUTE MUST TO WATCH!
First One is the Best

"Sonny Chiba's "The Street Fighter" was once notorious for being the first movie to get a (now defunct) "X" rating for violence, and "Street Fighter" is indeed a violent film. A bright red blood gushes everywhere, heads are cracked open, throats ripped out, and, in an incredible instance, a reproductive organ is ripped off. Add this hideous violence to a macho performance by Chiba and some decent fight choreography and you get a very fun 70s karate movie.
"Street Fighter's Last Revenge" sees Chiba's character becoming more of a James Bond type. There's even a romantic sub plot! This entry, however, isn't as enjoyable as the first one. "Sister Street Fighter" is a downright abomination, and Chiba doesn't even play the same Terry Tsuguri character!
The triple feature DVD from Vintage (which ignores the first sequel, "Return of the Streetfighter") has all three movies in 2.35:1 widescreen. They are all quite watcheable, with the first one looking the best. A biography of Sonny Chiba is included. I've seen a version of the same disc with an extra cardboard package with film and Sonny Chiba facts."
