Plot : In another time, another place , rock songtress Ellen ( Diane Lane) is kidnapped by a biker gang led by the cruel Raven ( Willem Dafoe) . It is up to Tom Cody ( Michael Paré) to rescue Ellen and defeat Raven and his cronies.
Originality : 5/5
Review : 5/5. Originally intended as a trilogy , the film did poorly upon its release and soundtrack to the film ( with songs penned by Jim Steinman and Stevie Nicks) became more well known than the actual film itself . Streets Of Fire is a perfect midnight film with its sleepy feel , kick ass soundtrack and performances by a plethora of talented thespians.
Memorable Songs: Nowhere Fast, Sorcerer, I Can Dream About You, and Tonight is What It Means To Be Young .
