Streets of Fire

Streets of Fire ★★★★½

Another quintessential 80’s schlockfest I’ve never seen before that, if you’re in the right mood for and don’t take it too seriously, is pure gold. No horror schlock but a musical and an action flick rolled into near 80’s perfection.

The music, the neon soaked streets, the cinematography, the feeling like you’re watching an 80’s video game come to glorious life, is way on point. This Shout release with a 2K scan is fantastic too.

The cameos from Bill Paxton and Rick Rossovich are interesting, both being cast in The Terminator the same year. I can see Walter Hill and James Cameron being mates.
