The Street Fighter

The Street Fighter (ザ · ストリー · トファイター, Za Sutorīto Faitā) is a Japanese martial arts film produced by Toei Company Ltd. and released in 1974, originally released in Japan as Gekitotsu! Satsujin Ken (激突!殺人拳, lit. Clash! Killer Fist). It was released in the US by New Line Cinema and became one of the first films to be a commercial success for the distributor.[1][2] It is notable as the first film to receive an X-rating in the United States solely for violence. In the UK it was originally released as Kung Fu Streetfighter (カンフー・ストリートファイター Kanfū Sutorītofaitā), presumably to avoid confusion with the Charles Bronson movie Hard Times which was initially released as The Streetfighter in the UK. The Street Fighter inspired two sequels, Return of the Street Fighter and The Street Fighter's Last Revenge. Additionally, the film Sister Street Fighter and its sequels is a spin-off series of The Street Fighter. There was another spin-off entitled Kozure Satsujin Ken, which was brought to the US by a different company under the title Karate Warriors. None of the spin-offs have any of the same characters from The Street Fighter films. The film begins as Takuma Tsurugi (renamed Terry in the English dub) meets the condemned murderer Tateki Shikenbaru (renamed Junjo in the English dub) while disguised as a Buddhist monk. Tsuguri applies his "oxygen coma punch" to Shikenbaru, causing him to collapse just before he can be executed. As Shikenbaru is rushed to a hospital, Tsurugi and his sidekick Rakuda (renamed Ratnose in the English dub) ambush the ambulance and free him. As Tsurugi and Rakuda watch the incident on the news, Shikenbaru's brother Gijun and sister Nachi arrive and plead for more time to pay for Tsurugi's help. Outraged, Tsurugi refuses and attacks the siblings. Gijun accidentally kills himself when Tsurugi dodges his flying kick, causing him to go out of a window, and Nachi is sold into sexual slavery through Renzo Mutaguchi.
