Memorable Quotes and Dialog:
"Listen, skirt, let me make it simple for you
- take a hike!"
Rating: 3/4 -- The movie is right on the rock & roll, but the alternative time and place are mysteriously convincing -- especially if, like me, you believe the most beautiful post-war American cars were Studebakers. Full Review
Rating: 3/5 -- A typically interesting effort from the vastly underrated Walter Hill that's improved with age.
Rating: 8/10 -- A grandiloquent compatriot to their later masterpiece, Geronimo... More exuberantly stylized than The Warriors, it seemingly stands in stark relief to the carborundum asperity of movies like Hard Times and The Driver... Full Review
An extravagantly stylized pulp burlesque that is at once an objectively lousy picture and just about the coolest damn thing I've ever seen. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- Where have you gone, Michael Pare'? I really enjoyed this.
Nolan's Pop Culture Review
Rating: 2/5 -- The first feature-length music video and not a very good one at that
Greenwich Village Gazette
It is stellar action cinema that thinks outside the box and it's worth watching again and again. Full Review
Beautiful young rock singer Ellen Aim is kidnapped off stage by a motorcycle gang. Her manager then hires a young adventurer to help him rescue his client, but what he doesn't realize is that the man he hired was once Ellen's boyfriend.
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.
