Reminiscent of the previous film ("The Streetfighter') with essentially the same plot. "Takuma Tsurugi" (Sonny Chiba) accepts a job for the mafia which requires him to get inside a police station to kill a prisoner before he can talk. Once that is accomplished he is then offered more money for another assignment. But he refuses. Figuring that he knows too much the mafia decides to assassinate him. Again, if you've seen "The Streetfighter" then this plot is very familiar. Anyway, like most martial arts films the action is paramount and this film definitely delivers. However, the dialogue is bad, his accomplice "Pin Boke" (Yoko Ichiji) is annoying and a couple of the scenarios are just too unrealistic. Likewise, the flashbacks (to the previous film) seem more of a nuisance than anything else. In short, if you like martial arts films then you might enjoy this one. But it lacks originality and because of the other criticisms I don't believe this is one of the better ones out there.

Sonny Chiba returns as Tsurugi, slightly more well-mannered here as befits a film that is neither as gory or as good as the original. The plot is straightforward - Tsurugi upsets the mafia, they send hordes of goons to kill him, he kicks their asses. The film has plenty of fight scenes that are still intense and brutal, but tones down the level of animal rawness... it does offer us a bit of nudity in exchange, but frankly it's no substitute for a guy getting his genitalia ripped off in a fight.
Still, it is pretty entertaining and the fight scenes are still impressive.
Return of the Street Fighter avoids the trap of many sequels, by actually simplifying procedures. The plot is much easier to follow and there are less characters to concern yourself with. Return of the Street Fighter is completely filled with action sequences, the plot is laid out early on to give us 80 minutes of ferocious action. It's all really well shot and Chiba brings his inescapable talents to the role. There are some stranger aspects to the film, such as outrageous examples of super strength and agility. Chiba can now hit people so hard that their eyes pop out. He even stabs people with guns. It's more tongue in cheek than the original. The twists are really unexpected, but sometimes reintroduce characters for no reason, other than yet another fight scene. The film also uses two fight scenes from the original as flashbacks. However, they are the ENTIRE scenes. It's not as though this film was lacking action scenes.
