I am not ashamed in saying how much I love the cult movie, Streets of Fire. It has one of the best soundtracks from a movie out of the 80’s, it has the gorgeous Diane Lane, and has the most epic sledgehammer duel in any movie ever put on celluloid. Did I just type that last bit? It’s also got a great turn by Williem Dafoe as the genuinely scary Raven Shaddock, leader of the motorcycle gang the Bombers. It also has the best tag line on the movie poster, “A rock & roll fable”. It’s an odd mix of so many styles…the 1950’s merges with the 80’s in a dreamlike cityscape. See for yourself in the trailer below.
If you want to get your friends together and have a blast watching a popcorn flick then you could do much worse than adding Streets of Fire to you Netflix queue.
