Reviews

Walter Hill's classic, highly stylized rock & roll fable has gained a huge cult following since its original 1984 release and with its backdrop of rain-drenched, neon-lit streets is one of the most visually iconic films of the decade.

Big time rock singer Ellen Aim is playing her hometown when she is grabbed from the stage by local bike gang The Bombers, led by the menacing Raven. Tom Cody, a tough ex-soldier and Ellen's ex-boyfriend returns home to get her back and he's ready to take on the whole gang.

One of my favourites and takes me back to the mid-80's with VHS rentals! Pleased to say though that Second Sight films has released the title in the UK and has given this some 'Special Edition' treatment that you would not normally see for a catalogue type title.

I will concentrate on the product details for this review as most arriving here will know of Walter Hill (Director of films such as The Warriors, Souther Comfort) and his particular style of films but may be wondering if this release is worth the cost. In this respect I consider this a bargain at just over £12 with film itself looking and sounding very good but also with a significant amount of special features. Full details as follows:

Picture quality is very good and the best i have seen the film. Most of the film is set at night so you will see some grain (as you would expect) but it is sharp throughout and I am very pleased with the version we have here. Audio comes courtesy of a DTS-HD Master Audio lossless 5.1 track and sounds very good. You will not get the head-turning surround sound effects as you would expect from a film such as this but the sound is strong (musical numbers are superb) throughout. There are 17 x chapters with pop-up menu access to key scenes.

Special features are extensive. There is a new 1hour 20min feature with Michael Paré, Walter Hill and others and offers a look back at the film production process. Very interesting throughout and great that this has been added to the title - from what I can see this may have been commissioned by the UK based Second Sight Films so very well done for taking this much effort for the release. USA based web sites seem to be looking to the UK disc as the one to buy!

Streets of Fire is directed by Walter Hill who also co-writes the screenplay with Larry Gross. It stars Michael Paré, Diane Lane, Rick Moranis, Amy Madigan and Willem Dafoe. Music is scored by Ry Cooder and cinematography is by Andrew Laszlo.

When the lead singer of Ellen Aim and the Attackers is kidnapped by biker gang The Bombers, her ex-soldier of fortune boyfriend is contacted and hired to go get her back...

There were a couple of movies released in 1984 by maverick directors that were frowned upon at the time, but are now significantly held in high regard and define the saying "cult movie". One was Alex Cox's Repo Man, the other was Walter Hill's Streets of Fire.

Streets of Fire is a bastard hybrid of ideas and influences. In part a rock opera set to the backdrop of blink blink blinkity blink neonvillle, an unnamed place that lives and breathes between 50s angst and 80s futurism, in others it's a straight forward road/mission movie headed up by an anti-hero taking notes from Snake Plissken whilst jostling for cool space with Kyle Reese. It's a film, that by Hill's own admission, is unashamedly a collage of things he finds cool in cinema. Yet this is not a detriment to the pic, the narrative is straightforward as can be and Hill throws everything he can into the mix, and it works.

In essence it's a live action comic book, it knows it's just a film and has no pretencions to seem remotely real life. The look is wonderfully flamboyant and campy, where the hero and villain wear braces and PVC overalls respectively. The girls are a mixture of a teenage diva babe and a beer swilling roughneck babe. The city itself is a vibrant mix of colours and carnage, beauty and beats, and where the streets literally are on fire.

A weird fusing of film noir with the 80's pop-video aesthetic. Its setting is supposed to be some kind of alternative dystopic future by my reckoning. The story is about a tough loner Tom Cody who returns to his hometown whereupon his ex-girlfriend (who is now a massive singing star) is kidnapped (direct from the stage!) by a gang of bikers led by Willem Dafoe. What they want with her is not clear but before we have a chance to find out Tom Cody storms their hideout (another neon nitespot with trans gender stage act) along with his new chum who he just met (ex-army tomboy called McCoy) and Rick Moranis (who plays a semi-straight role as the kidnapped singers manager/boyfriend). Willem Dafoe then swears revenge on Cody and the film has a finale of a fight between the two tough guys wielding pick axes. The dialogue of the movie is an important part, though it comes across as very cheesy, sub-Humphrey bogart/Mickey Spillane-esque. The director was going for a certain aesthetic which adds to the film. Everyone in this film is either a tough guy or someone who loves money. Its fair to say the look and feel of this movie has influenced a fair number of films since. But be warned because of the dialogue it is often very very cheesy, im unsure whether this was intentional, perhaps.
In terms of the quality of the Blu Ray, I would say that the source is at fault. The Blu Ray is definitely better than DVD and the picture has a lot more depth, though it often lacks sharpness, but maybe this is the best possible? I was happy enough with the image quality due to the enhanced screen depth.
