Movie Info

More 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

All Critics (25) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (13) | Rotten (8) | DVD (5)

A carefully stylised movie that's something like pure cinema.

Observer [UK]

Where have you gone, Michael Pare'? I really enjoyed this.

March 25, 2007
Nolan's Pop Culture Review

A typically interesting effort from the vastly underrated Walter Hill that's improved with age.

September 27, 2005
Fantastica Daily

SF musical biker hybrid - well done

August 13, 2005
Classic Film and Television

All sound and fury signify nothing.

The first feature-length music video and not a very good one at that

December 12, 2003
Greenwich Village Gazette

Unsuccessful, but very striking.

August 23, 2003
Movie Mom at Yahoo! Movies

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.

A semi rehash of Hill's own "The Warriors" with a flashy neon retro futuristic atmosphere but no interesting plot to grab on to.

Sometimes cliche is the real way to reach a level of honesty and truth that cinism could never reach.

How is this movie not talked about more? This is totally the corpse EVERYONE picks from. Imagine Star Wars, but starring Han Solo, set in the world of The Warriors with a supporting cast of Rick Moranis, Willem Dafoe, Bill Paxton and a SMOKING HOT Diane Lane.
