VHS Box Description
Streets of Fire is a movie, unlike any ever seen before—a rock and roll fable in which songs are as essential to the film as the action sequences. Michael Paré stars as Tom Cody, a handsome, heroic soldier of fortune who returns to his old neighborhood to rescue his gorgeous ex-girlfriend, rock star Ellen Aim (Diane Lane) from the clutches of the evil motorcycle gang that kidnaps her.
Together with Ellen's manager, Billy Fish (Rick Moranis) and Tom's tow-fisted, beer-guzzling sidekick McCoy (Amy Madigan) they set off into a timeless world of smoke, neon, rain-splattered streets, hot cars, and deadly enemies to bring Ellen back.
In the words of Director Walter Hill of 48 Hours fame, "...Leader of the Pack steals the Queen of the Hop and Soldier boy comes home to do something about it." All to the sounds of today's top rock stars.
