“[I]n 94 minutes it manages to be an urban western, a backstage rock musical and a biker flick set in an unidentified, run-down rust-belt inner city that might be yesterday or tomorrow …. a carefully stylised movie that’s something like pure cinema. It begins and ends with choreographed fights, features sets that crackle with garish neon in a hellish nocturnal world.” Philip French
