      Kathi Maio Sojourner There's no time in the exploitation formula for extraneous matters like character development or emotional shading. Aug 29, 2019 Full Review Brian Orndorf There's actually very little plot here to sustain 80 minutes of screentime, with much of Streetwalkin' feeling slack and disinterested, despite a few ambitious moments of psychological study Rated: C Aug 3, 2011 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member If you are feeling a little nostalgic, City Streets, aka Street Walkin is a great early 80's film. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/28/23 Full Review Audience Member Cookie (Melissa Leo) spends the movie trying to get away from her pimp. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Seedy and gritty fare from Producer Roger Corman featuring a runaway teen forced to the street and her abusive, hot-headed pimp who exploits her. Variety magazine hailed the film as delivering 'more than its share of sex and violence' and does have, for the most part, credible characters. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/24/23 Full Review Audience Member Okay, if I'm being completely honest here this all screams of Reagan-era hysteria over what would happen to the children if you let them out of your sight for a second, but it has some amusingly sleazy moments and builds to a decent enough stand-off between the newly minted teen whore and her 'vicious' pimp, though I never fully bought someone as milquetoast as Dale Midkiff as a streetwise thug. Rent that mother. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Recommended for fans of violence against prostitutes and fans of catchy theme songs about prostitutes. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member This actually manages some substance despite its B-movie feel. Pretty much all the main actors have gone on to have successful careers.
