  1. DenoResandono's rating of the film Streets of Fire

    I never thought that I'm gonna love this movie. In my opinion, STREETS OF FIRE is an underrated masterpiece from director Walter Hill. I know, the storyline looks cheesy & there's nothing special about it. It's simply about good versus evil. STREETS OF FIRE is fun, exciting, & beautifully shot. The soundtrack really nailed it. Listening its soundtrack is like having masturbation without having the real masturbation..

  3. Henri de Corinth's rating of the film Streets of Fire

    I have to admire a film that exists deliberately outside of time...not a 'throwback,' but a kind of netherworld where there is no backward or forward.

  4. babycakesromero's rating of the film Streets of Fire

    watching the 80s do the fifties in the 10s is a weird experience - good weird though...

  5. FISCHER's rating of the film Streets of Fire

    De l'action, un montage serré et fort rythmé, un héros solitaire, dans un film assourdissant et d'une teneur lourdement manichéenne. A mettre en parallèle avec "les guerriers de la nuit" du même réalisateur. www.cinefiches.com

  6. krýsuvík's rating of the film Streets of Fire

    Horrible movie, but I'm not gonna lie... I'm obsessed with the '80s ballads Fire Inc. recorded for the concert scenes.

  7. Terry_Moby's rating of the film Streets of Fire

    What you see is what you get... and nothing more. Imagine this and 'Highlander' as a late night double film event...and call it '80's pulp essentials'.

  8. †. Kennedy Pope's rating of the film Streets of Fire

    Can't help but love the convoluted setting (set in some alternate reality where the 80's and the 50's are one and the same) and the cheesy-as-all-hell dialogue; but it's another one of those genuine 80's fashion films. Love the music, minus one star for Willem Dafoe looking like a cross between a lizard, and a biker dominatrix throughout, and effectively haunting my nightmares .

  9. Christopher M. Jones's rating of the film Streets of Fire

    this is basically Final Fight with good music videos sandwiching the story and if you don't think that's the hypest shit in the world you can sit in a ditch for all I care sir or madam

  10. El Biffo's rating of the film Streets of Fire

    Walter Hill's style is so unique; he is one of the great unsung American film makers, the "Liberace" of cinema. My favorite is The Long Riders.

  11. Amin Lumière's rating of the film Streets of Fire

  12. el.'s rating of the film Streets of Fire

    american hot wax meets the warriors + dafoe in PVC and leather with super hair!!

  13. Ruiz Buñuel's rating of the film Streets of Fire

    Liked Albert Pyun's version "Road to Hell" better.

  14. msmichel's rating of the film Streets of Fire

    A neon lit exercise in cinematography that never overcomes its obvious back lot shoot and certainly hasn't stood the test of time. Pare and Lane miscast here with only a young psychotic Dafoe making a true impression. The final showdown is still impressive but one has to sit through a lot of 80's overproduced pop (I'm talking to you Jim Steinman) and bad hair and costumes. Definitely an unique entry for Hill.

  15. Cristal_Tear's rating of the film Streets of Fire

    One of my first favorite films

  16. Cosi's rating of the film Streets of Fire

  17. iarehautjobb's rating of the film Streets of Fire

    I've never seen STREETS OF FIRE, and I feel like I should.

  18. rado's rating of the film Streets of Fire

    Dark, savage urbanism never looked this great with every shot a neon oil painting. Fantastic upbeat soundtrack, aggressive editing, gritty youth-culture atmosphere and wonderful minimalistic characterisation. "The Warriors" bloomed into a full musical makes for the most memorable gang film until "Crows Zero".

  19. the.deft.one's rating of the film Streets of Fire

    There isn't much else going on outside of the aesthetics but that barely matters. It's 50's dialogue and 80's dystopia coalesced into an outrageous rock and roll tale. It's all here; there's neons galore, car chases, motorbikes and plenty of leather. Just sit back, let your eyes pop and your toes tap.

  20. Ghostman's rating of the film Streets of Fire

    Really wanted to like this one but it just doesn't work. Shallowly written and choppily edited, Streets of Fire is a bore. It only works on the aesthetic level and not on any other. One of Walter Hill's weakest efforts. REMATCH: Memorable and holds up better than I remember but not one of my favorite Hill.

  21. Konrad Szlendak's rating of the film Streets of Fire

    A cheesy retro flick by Hill is a far cry from "The Driver" or "Warriors". Subpar acting meets subpar screenplay and even yuppie-feel-good synth pop doesn't help much although spiked up with genuine rockabilly & surf pieces. I guess it went straight to VHS.

  22. Andrea Evangelista's rating of the film Streets of Fire

    Mediocre, ma prima di Ritorno al futuro e Final Fight

  23. Eleni Ashton's rating of the film Streets of Fire

    Crazy fun neon neo-western musical. Can't wipe this idiotic grin off my face. Genre blending done right. Gotta see more Hill.

  24. Sean's rating of the film Streets of Fire

    I thought the cast was great,especially Dafoe who's always superb as a bad guy. Loved the comic book feel to it, its a fun film indeed. The 50's meets the 80's is a pretty cool idea but I think because it such an 80's film the coolness its trying to be doesn't exactly work, I just found some scenes to be pretty bad, most of the concert scenes especially.
