From Amazon.co.uk

Street Fighter Alpha is an animated film aimed less at admirers of the comic strip from which it derives than aficionados of the arcade computer game which is the best known embodiment of the material; as such, the narrative line is mostly an excuse for balletic fights in which eyes glare and sides of buildings fall off. Ryu is a brilliant young fighter worried that his technique may yet corrupt him into monstrousness; the boy Shun appears, claiming to be his brother and already well on the way to corruption by the technique known as the Dark Hadou. When Shun is kidnapped by an evil scientist, Ryu goes after him in spite of the possible cost to his own moral status; his friend Ken and Interpol agent Chen go along to help him, and if necessary to kill him to prevent his corruption. This is largely by-the-numbers martial arts anime, but at times exciting or beautiful for all of that; devotees of the game will love it.

On the DVD: The DVD is generously stacked with English and Japanese soundtracks and English subtitles. There are interviews with the artists, creators and voice actors, a making-of documentary and various trailers and previews. --Roz Kaveney

Considering the Street Fighter series of arcade games offer little more than the chance to pick one of several computer characters in order to pummel another with the aid of some flashy graphics, an awful lot of time has been spent over the past decade creating stories about the characters featured in the games.
Street Fighter Alpha: The Movie, the supposed sequel to the Street Fighter II V series, hasn't actually been released on DVD over here, so we have absolutely no idea what's been happening in it. Apparently, the Alpha series takes place in an earlier time-frame than the original Street Fighter II movie, and the movie charts perennial favourite Ryu's attempt to resist the lure of the evil energies of the Dark Hadou (don't ask!) Out of nowhere comes a little brat who claims he's Ryu's younger brother, but before the two of them can bond, the child is kidnapped by the nasty Shadowlaw organisation, and Ryu, Ken and Chun-Li head off to save him from their clutches.
While the voice acting and animation in the series is on par, the entire movie is hamstrung by the fact that all anybody really wants to see the characters do is fight, making the film little more than 93min exercise in tedium as various ridiculously proportioned characters slug it out for no real reason, leaving no room for characterisation or logical plotting. If you're under the age of 16 or don't want too much from your anime this might be your cup of tea, but we'd rather have Akira or Perfect Blue any day.
Originally produced for Japan's home video market, the film is presented in its original 4:3 aspect ratio on this disc. The crisp, clean art style suits the format perfectly, looking more vibrant and alive than it ever did on VHS.

Street Fighter Alpha is one of those bad anime adaptions of a video game and it really shows when you have so many characters and yet most of them don't appear and those who do appear just act nothing like their video game counterparts. The story is rather confusing at the start but after you watch it you'll understand it, though only barely as it doesn't just seem like something from Street fighter.

Mad doctor trying to create the ultimate fighter through sucking the life force out of the best fighters leaving husks that walk around and stare at flowers just screams "Street Fighter". There are other plot points running through this two-part anime but the focus should have been on them rather than this silly story. The extras on this release are really good as it interviews all the Japanese Cast which were ported over from the Japanese release, but I would rather have an Interview with the English dub cast but sadly they were just too lazy.

This film does have maybe one good fight and quite a well thought out story but it's boring as bollocks.I was so pleased when this was released because I thought it would follow the same sought of theme as the 1st video but it is know where near as entertaining.It also lacks the cooool metal soundtrack from the other film which brought the fights to life.I'm sorry if I spoil the story for you but you will ask the same question, WHY DOESN'T HE FIGHT AKUMA? It could potencially have been the best battle ever.

The other reviews all seem a little harsh to me. First of all, it was always billed as a prequel to Street Fighter 2, and second of all, it was never going to be as good. Ryu, Ken and Chun-Li are the main characters, as always, with Akuma and Sakura playing secondary characters. The story does seem a little out of place, but there still is more story than Street Fighter 2 (which, good as it was, was little more than a series of fights). I thought that the "Ryu has a long lost brother" soryline wasn't quite what Street Fighter should be about and it didn't really sit well with me. I also didn't really like the character of Shun, but he did serve to forward Ryu's story concerning the dark hadou, so it can be forgiven. Other characters from the alpha series do appear, including Birdie, Adon, Rolento, Sodom, Guy, Dan and welcome returns from Zangief, Dhalsim and (surprisingly) Vega. No one should've expected to see Guile, Blanka and co. from the beginning. Watch out for a cameo from the Pocket Fighter versions of Chun-Li and Ibuki (a Street Fighter III character) as well. The animation is good, and the fights all look incredible. Particulalry good is the scene between Ryu and Akuma followed by a Ryu vs Ken battle. Overall, Street Fighter Alpha is a good film, and I look forward to the day that they make an anime film based on Street Fighter 3. Fans of the games will enjoy this, and so should fans of the Street Fighter 2 animated film, as long as they don't exoect it to be in any way similar or quite as good.

Format: DVD
this could have been a very good peice of anime/manga what i got instead was good animation and an awfull and i mean awfull storyline it has nothing to do with street fighter i mean whos proffesor sadler akuma could have been brilliant as the final boss but no he got a rubbish part and his cahracter just stops half way through the film i find it quite hard to watch because of the lengh if was a good story line i would of been able to but 2 hours of a rubbish character and not very much gore and no swearing nah it just dont even compare to the original lets hope that the second installment in the alpha series is better than this which is coming out in june 2005 thats one to look out for if youre a fan of street fighter but this one i am a die hard fan of street fighter i love all the games and films even the live action movie which no one else does so if youre a fan it still wont please you rent before buy
