I suppose Chiba is something of an acquired taste when compared to the likes of Bruce Lee and Jackie Chan. Also, there's no denying the Japanese action choreography was inferior to the Hong Kong standard of the time and still is nowadays imo. But i do like Chiba and his Streetfighter character purely because he's such a ruthless badass who hits first and asks questions later.
