More Details

Synopsis:
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.

Notes:
Color by Technicolor. Released theatrically in the USA June 1, 1984. Film was originally rated R by the MPAA, but was re-edited to earn a PG for release. Additional credit: Howard Jensen (special effects). Actress Diane Lane's singing voice is dubbed. Lee Ving, who plays Greer, is a member of the punk rock group "Fear." Marine Jahan, the dancer who doubled for Jennifer Beals in "Flashdance," plays a stripper in a brief sequence. The soundtrack album to the movie features 10 original songs by Stevie Nicks, The Blasters, Ry Cooder, Jim Steinman and other music performers.

Reviews:
"...The large ensemble cast is game....[Some songs shot with] real pizzazz." - 07/12/1996 Entertainment Weekly, p.67


"...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..." - 05/30/1984 Variety


"...[With] a pulsating mix of flashy cutting and Ry Cooder music....A guilty-pleasure cult movie..." - 07/05/1996 USA Today, p.3D
