Director: Shigehiro Ozawa
Plot Sypnosis:

Sonny Chiba stars as Takuma "Terry" Tsurugi, the animalistic antihero driven by sex, money and brawling in the infamous series that first introduced the name of the martial arts legend to a global audience.

The first film to receive an X rating in the U.S. purely on account of its violence, The Street Fighter sees Tsurugi embroiled in a game of double and triple crosses involving both local and foreign mafia gangs when he is hired to kidnap Sarai (Yutaka Nakajima, The Executioner 1 & 2), the beautiful heiress daughter of a recently deceased oil tycoon. In Return of the Street Fighter, Tsurugi uncovers an extortion racket behind the construction of a new karate dojo and a shadowy cabal whose reach stretches across the whole of Asia. In The Street Fighter's Last Revenge, Chiba is joined by Toei star Reiko Ike (Girl Boss Guerrilla, Sex and Fury) as Tsurugi goes hand-to-hand against an ambitious public prosecutor (Koji Wada) with his own fists of fury over evidence of a corporate coverup involving a chemical spillage.

The Street Fighter films made Chiba a star, so beloved by Quentin Tarantino he had the young lovers of True Romance meet-cute at a Sonny Chiba triple feature and would later cast Chiba himself in Kill Bill. Making its UK Blu-ray debut, Arrow Video is proud to present The Street Fighter Trilogy in all its eye-popping, skull-crushing, throat-ripping glory!
