The DiscA great deal. Four movies on 2 DVDs. Good picture for the most part. The sound isn't that great, but that is due to average dubbing. No real extras. Four movies for $19.99! Keep the extras.
"The Street Fighter": 9/10 picture rating: VCI did a great job restoring this movie to it's original widescreen glory. Other than a few delineation and grain problems during a couple of night time scenes, the picture is great.
All of the films suffer from bad dubbing. The sound if flat and tinny in the higher ranges. Three different actors appear to have dubbed Sonny Chiba's voice. The first two films have the same voice, but the others are different. It is a bit disconcerting. No distortion problems.
Simple design. Easy to navigate. Nice traditional Japanese music plays over the menu. I feel asleep watching a couple of these movies late at night and the music was soothing!
The only extra is a bio and filmography of Sonny Chiba. It appears on each side of both disks.
I like these movies. Fans of the series will definitely want this DVD. You can't beat the price. That's $5.00 a movie folks! Unless you speak Japanese, and can get the movies with their original soundtracks, I can't see buying these movies anywhere else.
