So, Does the Assassin's Fist live up to its Hype?

Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist was made available at last!! The Street Fighter Fan Movie that is meant to show us that a GOOD Street Fighter Movie IS POSSIBLE...
Then again, When we have the bar set so low, so pretty much ANYTHING CAN BE BETTER THAN THE LAST HOLLYWOOD STREET FIGHTER MOVIE!

So let's forget this horrible Abomination and have a round of Street Fighter: Assassin's Fist!

I'm feeling generous, so here it is!

I shall not spoil it too much, but It Feels MORE Like Street Fighter than the last two Hollywood attempts. (Like I said above, that's pretty easy to do, since the Hollywood Street Fighters suck ass)
I LOVE that they are following the Ryu/Ken Storyline instead of going through Guile or Chun Li...
It's pretty obvious that the folks involved in this project have KNOWLEDGE of Street Fighter and they LOVE and RESPECT the source Material.

Now, it's NOT Perfect, but for a fan movie, it's pretty great! So, yes, it lives up to the hype.
