Yeah, I have seen one of Street Fighter movies. One of my friends lend it to me quite a long while ago, but I never bothered to make a copy of it for myself. Now I am going to explain why...
I wouldn't like to bash some people's favorite anime, but to be truthful I found Street Fighter rather stupid and pointless. No plotline worth mentioning, no interesting characters, just plain and stupid fighting. And personally, fighting isn't what I am looking for in the anime; IMHO, you can find some more realistic or more visual (whatever you prefer) fighting in some films, like ol' good Mortal Combat. I like anime for interesting and sometimes rather unpredictable plotlines, interesting and well-developed characters, and occasional deep emotions and certain messages that are put in the anime. I have seen neither of this in Street Fighter, at least not in the Street Fighter movie that I have seen. Hell, now thinking about it, this movie was as bad as Blood! I think I will need to pay the “Anime movies/series you hate…” thread…

Your right about it being dull. But I see them as classics.Star wars episode 4 If watched today is pretty dull but I still enjoy them because it's classic(Same thing for the first drangon ball series)
Star Wars are a little bit like a sci-fi fairy-tale, and at time (at most times) the plot is rather predictable. But still, Star Wars contained some very interesting characters (Han Solo, Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader, Mace, Yoda, Jango and Boba Fett are my favorites!), and I relly enjoy watching various Star Wars episodes from time to time.

Actually to enjoy Fatal fury and Street fighter, you must not search for a good story/plot its mainly for martial artists who enjoy bashing action. In my opinion some of the best anime are the Gundam(the U.C timeline only the others are not so good) series and Rurouni Kenshin. To have in inside view on honor I say Kenshin is the best.
