"Listen, skirt, let me make it simple for you
- take a hike!"
Entertainment Weekly - 07/12/1996
"...The large ensemble cast is game....[Some songs shot with] real pizzazz."
Variety - 05/30/1984
"...A pulsing, throbbing orchestration....The film alternately, and sometimes simultaneously, suggests the rhythm and texture of BLADE RUNNER, ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK and THE WARRIORS..."
USA Today - 07/05/1996
"...[With] a pulsating mix of flashy cutting and Ry Cooder music....A guilty-pleasure cult movie..."
Romance and violence collide in this rock 'n' roll fantasy set against a background of highly stylized urban decay. A sexy female singer is kidnapped by a gang of vicious bikers and her cool, laconic ex-boyfriend must come to her rescue. The pounding soundtrack features songs by Stevie Nicks, The Blasters, Ry Cooder and others.
