Movie InfoMore like a series of MTV sequences than a long-term narration, this super-thin story line focuses on a kidnapped singer (Diane Lane) and her ex-boyfriend (Michael Pare) who goes forth to save her through rainy streets, the roar of elevated subways, several alleys, and the usual warehouses. Each thrust of the story has rock music that follows along with the narration. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

Critic Reviews for Streets of Fire
Where have you gone, Michael Pare'? I really enjoyed this.
A typically interesting effort from the vastly underrated Walter Hill that's improved with age.
SF musical biker hybrid - well done
The first feature-length music video and not a very good one at that
Unsuccessful, but very striking.
Ah, a classic hyperbolic rock-fueled action movie. The pinnacle of 80s guilty pleasure cinema.
Audience Reviews for Streets of Fire
The cast is the true gem here. The story is pretty cool too, but Rick Moranis playing an asshole of this proportion is classic. And Dafoe's horrid face only looks horrider as a young punk.More
A semi rehash of Hill's own "The Warriors" with a flashy neon retro futuristic atmosphere but no interesting plot to grab on to.More
Sometimes cliche is the real way to reach a level of honesty and truth that cinism could never reach.More
