Melody (Mimi Lesseos) is a writer/reporter for some newspaper in Hollywood. While gathering information on the strip she meets two homeless kids. She provides shelter at her place because a crazed street pimp is killing teenage runaways. Time to clean up the streets - Melody is trained in martial arts and she's also a war heroine!

Looks and smells like a cheap Cynthia Rothrock knock off but it's not. It's cheap alright, but there isn't much fighting going on. Streets of Rage appears to be a vanity project by former female wrestler Mimi Lesseos. She produced the movie and wrote the script, and was most likely hoping for a breakthrough in the B-filmbiz. Looking at her IMDb resume it never happened though.
If you dig mid-90s home video production values, sunny urban setting, smooth jazz score and a former female wrestler showing off her buff body in tight clothing while neck-breaking bad guys than this might be right up your alley. Too much average dull cheese for my liking. I'll rate it 2.5/5.

Porno music in the trailer?!  I had my kids in the room with me, and I was worried what they were going to see.

This is my awesome signature.  Jealous?

That woman is extremely unattractive ... but I want to see her naked, anyway.   Question

Hi there!

Not to be nitpicking, but the synopsis you put has Melody being the one who offers shelter and one who refuses shelter. :/

The cover is generic 90's action flick, and it looks like it was made on cardboard budget.

In the trailer, the guy trying to seduce the lady has a worse accent than Tommy Wiseau.

Yeah gonna past on this.

yeah no.
