Streets of Fire

Filed under: movies — mahou @ 8:55 pm

One of the lost films of the 80s, supposed to be a hit but never was.
Described as a big influence on Final Fight and Streets of Rage, I was expecting something more gritty, urban and seedy, whereas this has more rock n’roll influence and 50s style.
Strangely, the big action sequence occurs in the middle, leaving the finale to be a bit of a let down.
Michael Paré is great as the lead, as is Willem Dafoe as his adversary.
8/10
