Streets of Fire, one of the most overlooked and underrated films of the 1980’s, is finally coming to Blu-ray, thanks to Shout! Factory.
From acclaimed writer-director Walter Hill comes the stylish rock-and-roll fable, which features one of the most badass and energetic open scenes of all time, and boasts the insane cast that includes Michael Paré (The Virgin Suicides), Diane Lane (Man of Steel), Rick Moranis (Ghostbusters) and Amy Madigan (The Dark Half).
Amid a brooding rock & roll landscape, the Bombers motorcycle gang, led by the vicious Raven Shaddock (Willem Dafoe), kidnap diva Ellen Aim (Diane Lane). Her hope for rescue lies with unlikely heroes: soldier of fortune Tom Cody (Michael Paré) and his sidekick, the two-fisted beer-guzzling McCoy (Amy Madigan). Joined by Ellen’s manager, Billy Fish (Rick Moranis), the trio plunges headfirst into a world of rain-splattered streets, hot cars, and deadly assassins.
This cult favorite features a razor-sharp cast and original songs written by Jim Steinman, Stevie Nicks, Tom Petty and Ry Cooder and performed by The Blasters and The Fixx. Streets of Fire is a rock & roll shotgun blast to the senses.
