THE STREET FIGHTER'S LAST REVENGE (1974)
The third film in THE STREET FIGHTER series starring Sonny Chiba. As a martial arts movie this isn't the worst thing you could watch but as part of this classic series it is pretty weak. The main problem is that they soften the character of Terry Suguri up too much and make him way too much of a hero. If you know anything about this series it's that The Streetfighter is not very much of a good guy. He's supposed to be a ruthless hitman for hire but not a secret agent spy with disguises or a secret hideout or any of that crap. You do get some blood and boobs, the fight scenes aren't bad and you get that kick-ass theme song. Not a complete waste of time but don't expect anything as great as the original.
