Streets of Fire 1984
The film is an incredible mix of music, dialog, and violence. One of its taglines is "A Rock & Roll Fable".
As any good rock and roll fable should, Streets of Fire opens with a catchy, fist-pumping power ballad, courtesy of Ellen Aim (Diane Lane); a big league rock chick performing a benefit concert in her run-down home town. Unfortunately not all her fans are happy go lucky locals. Willem Dafoe becomes mega-creep Raven Shaddock – leader of an evil biker gang who’s intent on dragging Ellen back to his hideout. Snatching the singer off stage (but thankfully not until she’s finished her big number), Raven rides off into the night with his new prize, leaving boyfriend and manager Billy Fish (Rick Moranis) to devise a rescue plan. Unfortunately Billy is no gang brawler, but he does have enough money to pay Ellen’s ex boyfriend/all round tough guy Tom Cody (Michael Pare) to cash in as the hero.
