Reviews
Mine: Almost really good. Love Diane Lane in this, but it does not have quite enough energy or style to bring it off. Fun none the less.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Female rock star is kidnapped by sadistic bikers, and her embittered ex-boyfriend agrees to bring her back--for a price. This "rock 'n' roll fable" is actually a 1950s B movie brought up to date with pulsating rock score (principally by Ry Cooder), state-of-the-art visuals, and a refusal to take itself too seriously. Unfortunately, near the climax the glitter gives out and we're left with the story--which can't carry film to a really satisfying conclusion. Stunningly photographed (mostly on a soundstage, believe it or not) by Andrew Laszlo.
