We gave it a C

in Streets of Rage, real martial-arts champ Mimi Lesseos plays a former special forces commando-turned-aspiring reporter, though her new career doesn’t mean that she still can’t kick hoodlum butt no matter how short and tight her skirts may be. While researching a story on L.A.’s street kids, she crosses paths with the leader of a child-prostitution ring (Oliver Page), whose bad-guy posturing — right down to his sinister Brit accent — is pure textbook. But give credit to Lesseos (who produced and cowrote) for a sensitive shower scene and some fighting sequences that go a long way toward proving she’s the sexiest head-butter in B movies. C
