I have a soft spot for revenge flicks of the 70s and early 80s, especially gritty urban flicks in the mold of “Savage Streets” and “The Exterminator”. When news broke that Scorpion Releasing was unleashing the 1984 urban revengesploitation flick “Alley Cat” on DVD I quickly snagged it hopping for some homegrown urban revenge goodness. Well it is a homegrown urban revenge flick… but good? Hardly. Let’s just say it’s in the mold of films like “Savage Streets” and “Angel” but not near as entertaining as either.
