This review is from: Streets Of Fire [DVD] (DVD)
I saw this film originally at the cinema following a review on Film 84 with Barry Norman. Surprisingly Barry loved the film. Not for its script and plot but for it's imagery and soundtrack. Score by Ry Cooder plus some songs by Jim Steinman - heaven as far as I am concerned. So I went to see it. Barry was right. The plot is simple. Bads guys take girl. Good guy goes to get girl back - you can guess the rest. The acting is excellent, despite some of the corny dialogue, with early roles for Diane Lane, Rick Morianis and the wonderful Willem Defoe plus Michael Pare (don't know what happened to him). I have been listening to the soundtrack for years, I wore out my cassette and now have the CD. I have been waiting for a UK DVD release since I got my DVD player in 2000. Now it's here and I can continue to get nowhere fast. Buy it, borrow it but watch it and enjoy it. It's fun.
