ROAD TO HELL REVIEWED
“Road to Hell” is a continuation of Michael Pare’s character from “Streets of Fire”. But, this time the Devil is after his soul, as he rides into Purgatory. This is partially symbolic & partially CG real. His sister returns from the first movie, plus you get some covers of the original movie’s songs. Roxy Gunn works well, as I guess she’s Diane Lane’s kid. But, she also has a strained relationship with her Michael Pare daddy. Did I mention there are two chicks killing people in and around town?
Yeah, you forget these sorts of things when you’re watching the CG backgrounds whip by the characters. I really wish that every scene could’ve been shot live on location. When it’s live, the material feels stronger and you get that Walter Hill spirit from the original. That doesn’t make this a bad movie, just an off-model one that misses a lot of easy shots. If you’re a fan of Streets of Fire, you have the magic to get you through the material.
If you’re a fan of Pyun’s work, then you wonder why Michael Pare kinda fades out near the end of the movie. These two tastes don’t gel perfectly, but they work good enough. I’d recommend a viewing.
