Synopsis

The Street Fighter's Last Revenge
The third entry in the Street Fighter series found the filmmakers adding in James Bond style trickery to spice up the kung-fu formula. This time, Terry Tsugury (Chiba) is hired by the criminal Owada clan to rescue a pair of cassette tapes that contain a formula that would the cheap manufacture of heroin. Tsugury pulls it off successfully but when his employers to double-cross him, Tsugury takes off with the tapes. The criminals send a group of thugs after him, led by a laser-shooting mariachi known as Mr. Black (Black). With a little help from female government agent Kaho (Shiomi), Tsugury use his fighting skills and mastery of disguises to foil the Owada clan and their henchmen. In the process, he gets to the bottom of a drug conspiracy that involves both the criminal underworld and the local police. Star Sonny Chiba went on to several more kung-fu epics built around his tough-guy charisma and Sue Shiomi later starred in a Street Fighter series spinoff entitled Sister Streetfighter. ~ Donald Guarisco, Rovi

Sister Street Fighter
This kung-fu outing was a spin-off of martial arts star Sonny Chiba's popular Street Fighter series. Like those films, it combines high-kicking martial arts with comic-book plotting and a dollop of B-movie sleaziness. It features regular Chiba sidekick Sue Shiomi as Tina Long, a tough martial arts expert who agrees to go undercover for the Hong Kong police when her policeman brother, Lee (Hiroshi Miyauchi), disappears during an anti-drug operation. She enlists the help of her brother's karate school, which includes the expert fighter Sonny Kawasaka (Chiba). Together, Tina and Sonny go up against a formidable drug lord and an army of martial artists, each with their own deadly skill. In the process, she uncovers some dark secrets about her family. Star Sue Shiomi continued to star in martial arts films and later revived the Tina Long character in two sequels. ~ Donald Guarisco, Rovi
