Audience Member Leans a bit more into the exaggerated cartoonish physical violence that is reminiscent of Looney Tunes but overall this middle chapter of an unsung trilogy is a playfully self-aware and slyly directed martial arts affair. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member This is part continuation and part sequel to The Street Fighter. The story is more convoluted-harder to follow. The dubbing is horrendous. The appeal is more gritty Sonny Chiba action in the role that made him super famous. Some good fights. Not as boldly violent as the predecessor. Some great looks at Karate training and weapons. Sonny Chiba fans ad a half a star. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member The goofy sidekick is a little much, but it's still good fun. As Sonny has to take on the Mafia with his brand of cartoon violence. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 05/09/19 Full Review Audience Member Sonny Chiba is back in this sequel to the seminal martial arts grindhouse action film "The Street Fighter." In this Sequel Terry Tsurugi takes on the Yakuza, but he's saddled with a very goofy female partner, who really drags the movie down. The fights here are still brutal and savage and likely equal the original film, but the comic relief is what really made me not like this film as much. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member good sequel Chiba kicks ass Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review dustin d The Street Fighter sequel has a few decent action scenes, but none are nearly as over-the-top as the original (which was sort of the point of that film). The meandering story feels long even at 77 minutes, with overlong flashbacks to the first film hinting at this one's dearth of ideas. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
