The longest awaited game adaptation of all time... (by maoui84)
When I was a kid, Street Fighter II was my game. Apparently, it also was Joey Ansah's, and Christian Howard's, as well as Mike Moh's!All Street Fighter fans who loved the lore and the martial arts of the game were disappointed never to be given a rich, powerful representation of Ryu and Ken on screen, except for some great anime versions.After a long wait about 16 years for me , Joey and Christian announced that they wanted to make a live action adaptation, and after another year and a half, with hyped up expectations, their team unleashed Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist onto <more>
the world. It is truly phenomenal. As a fan, and one with extremely high expectations, I was amazed at how these were blown out of the water with the great story given us with SFAF.Do they actually Tatsumaki? Yes. Do they Hadouken? Yes. Do they Shoryuken? Yes! No spoilers here, they show it in the trailer And the story is indeed great: it is intricate, starts in medias res with very interesting developments throughout. The friendship between Ryu and Ken is endearing. It is for fans with lots of little references to various elements of SF lore as for people who have never heard of the game, and it's not just for male audiences, girls have really enjoyed it too! And not just because of Christian Howard being topless a lot in it. On such a small budget, it is AMAZING what they have done. The dialogues are good, the characters are well developed, the fights are fantastic. The ending makes me cry, but also leaves me wanting more! More of Gouken, Akuma, Ken and a lot more of Ryu, knowing where the story can take us from here!The most imposing actors in the movie for me were Igawa no surprise there but also Akira Koieyama, who can be very impressive and compelling. But you can also see that there is room for growth in the characters of Christian and Mike, who did a great job and will look even better is a sequel.Regarding the cinematography, wow. The shots are great, with fantastic views and angles. The image gives off a warm vibe, a strength of colours which just feels good to me as a viewer.I truly hope that Joey, Christian and their team will get the proper funding for many more features and will continue soon! to produce more of this great story on screen for us!In the meantime, I just want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH JOEY, Christian, JACQUELINE, MIKE, TOGO, AKIRA, PATRICK, and all the others for the amazing work done on the show, and EVERYBODY, WATCH THIS MOVIE!!! It's available online on the Machinima website!!!
Excellent series. True to the gaming roots! (by burhanrajbhoy)
If you are a fan of the original SF games, you will love this. This series gives new birth to the street fighter franchise. It sticks to the authenticity of the game series and does a great job of portraying the street fighter characters that you loved as a child. The action sequences are amazing and executed very well along with the special effects which are not over the top. The story is very well scripted and is true to the video games.The origin story of Ryu and Ken is very authentic and the focus on the details makes it satisfying to watch. The creators of the show have done a great job <more>
of capturing all the little details that make the characters so memorable. As a hardcore fan of the street fighter games I hope this is the start of something great and look forward to future episodes. Would love to see more of the characters being introduced into the series. Shoryuken!!!
Finally STREET FIGHTER is done RIGHT !! (by grae_manta)
After years of disappointment from Hollywood putting out horrible films of this beloved video game franchise, now we have an independent director come and do the film JUSTICE! This was just greatness. I've played Street Fighter all my life and now recently have become an even bigger fan because of this movie. Street Fighter Assassins Fist is what the fans have wanted for so long!!!!! I applaud everyone who put their hard work into doing this project and hope for many more in the series to continue!! It also inspires me as a martial artist to continue my training further. The movie really <more>
goes in depth storyline wise and that is what makes this project such a beautiful thing- sticking to the script!!! Why is that so difficult for Hollywood directors to understand ::shaking my head::? BRAVO on a job well done guys!!!! I'll be watching for future projects!
Low budget, but extremely captivating & enjoyable (by HarryPotterIsGarbage)
The only thing keeping me from giving this movie a 10/10 is its low budget effects, and also I did not like the actor for Ryu. His acting and fighting moves were a bit underwhelming. It needed to be more sharp and dynamic, like Ken. The actor for Ken was perfect. Also, Gouken's accent is too deep and hard to understand sometimes.. but his overall acting is good , I'd prefer it if he just spoke Japanese through the whole movie though.Other than that, I loved the drama and humor in this movie. A lot of great scenes that SF fans like myself love to see ie: Ryu's theme played by <more>
flute, Akuma's final fight scene, reference to Dan in the dojo, etc. And, surprisingly, a lot of very powerful, emotional moments in this movie... completely unexpected.This film gets an 8.5 rating from me, because it's one of the best video game adaptations I've ever seen. I gave it a 9 in my review though, because there was no option for 8.5, and I didn't want to give it an 8. ^_^
Name a better video game movie adaptation. (by originalsyn666)
Mortal Kombat? Not quite.Silent Hill? Sure, it was a spectacle to behold, but most fans of the series agree that, apart from the city itself, the plot was not much in line with the game's. You could argue that a movie doesn't necessarily need conform to its source material, but I would say that if you're talking about the "best" VG adaptation, then staying true to the roots is very important. SF: Assassin's Fist does that and then some.I don't feel like I need to go into the details. If you watched it and left a comment, I'm gonna go out on a limb and say <more>
that you can cut and paste your review into mine. We're synonymous: Assassin's Fist was pure gold. My buddy calls it The Dark Knight of video game movies. Considering the budget, I have to agree.I look forward to the next installment!
Amazing Series. So much potential for the future! Give them more money now!!! (by bsw209)
An absolutely brilliant series, and a great achievement that from the start of the first episode, enthralled and captivated me. As a long time Street Fighter fan and huge fan of the incredible anime from back in the 90s, I was blown away by the attention to detail in every aspect of the series.Although there are some weaker moments, and the odd bad line, even a non street fighter fan would find it hard to be anything but positive in review of Street Fighter AF.The beginning of the series sets a nice tone and pace, and does more than enough to get you interested in the plot. As the series <more>
goes on, I felt it move from strength to strength as acting performances and action explodes into the epic finale, before ultimately leaving you thirsty and slightly desperate for more!I thought all of the actors were great, but for me, Akira Koieyama was the stand out performer. He literally blew me away - he was intensely powerful, dramatic, funny and exactly what Goken should have been! He made you empathize and like him from the moment he was introduced.Togo Igawa and Christian Howard, as Gotetsu and Ken respectively, were a close second. I knew Togo would be amazing as he always is, but Christian really surprised me. As the series goes on, he really goes from strength to strength and by episode 3/4 he was my favourite character well, alongside Akira as Goken .And the fight scenes... simply amazing. Absolute perfection. Not only did they nail the Ansatsuken fighting stlye Ken & Ryu's martial lineage , they were able to reflect the personalities of the characters in their fights and choices of moves, whilst combining excellently choreographed scenes, with all of the moves from almost every Street Fighter game, which is an immensely difficult job!Joey Ansah did a brilliant job as director, allowing characters to explore boundaries of their personas, whilst staying true to the series, with beautiful homages to the anime move, anime series, games and so on. My personal highlight was Ken & Ryu running through the forest at the start and tying up the series so fantastically with them doing it again at the end! And to top it all off, the DoP did an incredible job, it looked immaculate and the finale final few episodes particularly was sublime.And finally, the music! Although there are some poorer parts of the main composition mainly the emotional scene music , it was great and the addition of Ryan Ansah's incredible guitar re-work of classic Street Fighter 2 level theme music Ken & Ryu's was just pure class! The fact that they did all of this on a tiny, tiny little budget, and released it for free, fills my heart with excitement for what the future holds for Street Fighter, and particularly this crew! I look forward to the future!I could go on, as I am sure I have missed some of the other great aspects of the series, but I will leave it there! Because when you have finished watching this series, just think about the sheer potential this crew has to go on and create even more incredible entertainment!
Low budget, average quality, high spirit (by siderite)
I always rate movies based on their niche, so I would not compare a fan made martial arts film inspired from a game to a Hollywood big production. Also, I've seen this as a two hours twenty minutes film, not a bunch of episodes. That being given, I enjoyed watching Assassin's Fist even if I think the name is completely misguided and I appreciated, as I see many others have, the strong Street Fighter feel. If you look carefully at the battle between Ken and Ryu you see a lot of the trademark game moves, which were carefully choreographed in a believable fighting scene, which I think <more>
is both commendable and very difficult.Now, the film is an origin story, it doesn't contain much fighting and it only concerns the two characters who had disappointingly identical fighting styles in the game: Ken and Ryu. You get the typical dojo Master/pupil story Street Fighter Kids would have been a better title . I really haven't played any version of SF newer than 2, so I don't know how the mythos evolved in the game, but if you think about it, this is not really a film inspired by the game, but by the small text boxes explaining who each character was : In conclusion: the acting and directing were not perfect, but if you look at the cast, you realize that they did a decent job for their experience. The story is a little frustrating, given that every "master" in it is concealing and even destroying information rather than sharing it with his pupils, in order to "protect" them, fact which of course leaves them completely powerless against certain "dark" techniques. It also ends in a sort of cliffhanger, which sucked. But the spirit of the film was really close to what I would think of a Street Fighter game. I enjoyed watching it and at the end I wanted to see the continuation.Then again, I thought the VanDamme movie was OK, too. The only strong problem I see with this model of Street Fighter movies is that if you make so much effort to describe the origin of just two characters, we will get to see a tournament film somewhere in 2050. Personally I can't wait to see a Blanka bit, though.
The fans of Street Fighters have always expected for a faithful adaptation in live action, and I have to say this is the ADAPTATION. The martial arts, costumes, the nature of the characters, the atmosphere of the places, everything is very well done. When I was a kid dreamed watch the power of Ryu and Ken, and with Street Fighter Assassin's Fist, I could see even more. I hope that people who love Martial Arts or Street Fighter, or both,take the time for watching Street Fighter Assassin's Fist, because they're gonna enjoy that time.I hope this project continue and show us more <more>
The people behind this project left us all salivating for the better part of a year waiting for this series and I was worried it would be a let down. The SF Legacy short film was alright but kind of cheesy with moments of greatness sprinkled in. I knew they had a decent budget this time considering and a lot more time to actually tell a story that SF fans all love. They nailed it! I didn't have high expectations going in but this series actually gave me goose bumps several times. The cinematography, music and acting mostly was fantastic. The writing was also top notch with just enough <more>
hum our to keep the pacing from getting stale. What they were able to do with a couple million dollars is really exceptional and I loved the series as a whole. The Asian man from across the lake was absolutely hilarious! The only thing keeping this from getting a 9 or even a 10 was Christian Howards acting. Most scenes where there was dialog were fine but there were a few where he just didn't seem believable. He absolutely nailed the look of Ken Masters however and better than anyone on earth potentially. The rest of the cast were fantastic though especially Gaku Space who played Goki and Hyunri who played Sayaka.Overall this was a fantastic series and I will patiently wait the next chapter in the series no matter how long it takes!
