"Once again, Chiba gets a job to do from the mob. This time not to break somebody out but to kill somebody in prison! This is probably the best part of the mvoei but it has a ton of other great moments. So just like the original Streetfighter the mob thinks that Chiba knows too much and is after him. So the guy who had his throat ripped out by Chiba in the first movie is back to take him down. While the karate isn't quite as good as the first it is still very good at moments and it has just as much blood. Overall a great sequel.
There is an utra cheap DVD set out called Martial Arts Masters with Street Fighter, Revenge of the Street Fighter, and Sister Street Fighter on it with a VERY nice perfectly letterboxed remastered picture. There are really no flaws on it. It is distributed by St. Clair Vision and I got it for 2.99 at the used store! More than worth the buy and it has Bruce Lee's first movie on it and Shogun's Ninja. Though only the Streetfighter movies are remastered."
OK, BUT SHOULD'VE BEEN A LITTLE BETTER

"THIS TIME, SONNY CHIBA RETURNS TO BUST UP A PHONY CHARITY THAT'S BEING PUT TOGETHER BY THE YAKUZA. I MUST SAY, THIS MOVIE STARTED OFF BORING, BUT AFTER A WHILE, IT GETS A LITTLE BETTER. GREAT FIGHTS NONETHELESS, BUT, THE STORY ISN'T AS HALF AS GOOD AS THE ORIGINAL. STILL, IF YOU WANNA SEE MORE OF SONNY CHIBA AT HIS YOUNGER DAYS, RENT OR BUY THIS FILM, BUT, IF YOU WANNA SEE THE ABSOLUTE BEST OF SONNY CHIBA, RENT OR BUY THE ORIGINAL."
