Best 80's soundtrack! Where's the DVD?
8 May 2005 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

As an angst-ridden teen in the 80's and a fan of alternate music, "Reckless" with Darryl Hannah and Adian Quinn had everything that films like Foot Loose and Top Gun were missing - a true kick a** soundtrack featuring great 80's tunes from artists like Kim Wilde, INXS, and the excellent Romeo Void (read: NO theme song from Kenny Loggins!). The film wasn't going to win any Oscars but it wasn't meant to! Reckless is a great little flick about the guy from the wrong side of the tracks going after, and getting (maybe!) the girl. In 2005, Reckless is a perfect 80's time-capsule! Sad that the studio had such little faith in the film at the time that they never even released a soundtrack CD. And to date, it's never been released on DVD! Both Hannah and Quinn are still viable stars today (see: Kill Bill and Empire Falls), and this is a nostalgic snap shot of both stars in earlier days. A note to the studio execs out there (and those fantastic folks at Rhino!) - the 80's are back and HOT so give us this DVD, will ya?
