Blu-ray release: ‘The Street Fighter Trilogy’
By Phil Mills | Mar 13, 2023
Arrow Video are bringing the Japanese martial arts movie ‘The Street Fighter‘ (ザ • ストリート • ファイター) and its two sequels to UK Blu-ray on April 17, 2023.
The first film to receive an X rating in the U.S. purely on account of its violence, ‘The Street Fighter’ sees Takuma “Terry” Tsurugi (Sonny Chiba) 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 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 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.
