Trivia

Despite the tagline "The gang war of the sexes", Brenda is the only member in the "girl gang" that performs any act of violence to the boys. Francine does cut Jake with a knife during the fight in the bar, but only to defend herself and her boyfriend from the Scars. See more »

Goofs

When Brenda sets Jake on fire after pouring the solvent on him, the close-ups of Jake on fire reveal a hooded figure, obviously a stunt double. See more »

Quotes

Principal Underwood: [Brenda is standing in Underwood's office after the fight with Cindy] Now I'm sorry about your sister, Brenda. The police are doing everything they can. But she shouldn't have been there in the first place.
Brenda: Fuck you!
Principal Underwood: [smiles] You're a tough little bitch, aren't you? I like that. But I don't give second warnings. So consider yourself suspended.

Sick! Stupid!...but I certainly wasn't bored
2 June 2001 | by moonspinner55See all my reviews

Call "Savage Streets" what it is: trash. However, it is amusing, lowest-of-all-levels trash, and I enjoyed Linda Blair's upfront, colorful performance as the vengeful big sister of a rape victim. The dialogue is hilariously vulgar and self-conscious, and the girls' locker room sequence (filled with naked babes, as if this were a women-in-prison flick) provides just about the final word in exploitative catfights. The tone wavers continually from outrageous juvenalia to psychotic melodrama, and the extreme violence (as well as the rape scene) is tough to stomach. However, the film's goal is to be cartoonish junk, and that is surely realized. ** from ****
