Director Walter Hill sets out for action and romance with the rock & roll fable Streets of Fire. Universal's work on this 1.85:1 non-anamorphic widescreen transfer is passable at best. While it's nice to have this movie in its original aspect ratio, overall this is a disappointing image that sports muted black levels, soft color patterns, and a non-anamorphic transfer. The audio is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround in English, as well as Dolby 2.0 Surround in French. While the video presentation may leave much to be desired, the soundtrack features aggressive directional sounds, crystal clear dialogue, and fun musical songs. Also included on this disc are English and Spanish subtitles. The extra features for Streets of Fire certainly don't burn up a viewer's DVD player -- the only supplements included on this disc are a few scant production notes, a trailer for the film, and some filmographies on the principle cast and crew members.

Synopsis

Streets of Fire
More like a series of MTV sequences than a long-term narration, this super-thin story line focuses on a kidnapped singer (Diane Lane) and her ex-boyfriend (Michael Pare) who goes forth to save her through rainy streets, the roar of elevated subways, several alleys, and the usual warehouses. Each thrust of the story has rock music that follows along with the narration. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi
