The WarriorsClosed Captioning

A battle of gigantic proportions is looming in the neon underground of New York City. The armies of the night number 100,000; they outnumber the police 5 to 1; and tonight they're after the Warriors—a street gang blamed unfairly for a rival gang leader's death. This contemporary action-adventure story takes place at night, underground, in the sub-culture of gang warfare that rages from Coney Island to Manhattan to the Bronx. Members of the Warriors fight for their lives, seek to survive in the urban jungle and learn the meaning of loyalty. This intense and stylized film is a dazzling achievement for cinematographer Andrew Laszlo.
Personaly, i love it!!
This film is amazing and i love it... i played the Game of this a while back and wondered if i could ever find the film, its ruff and tuff but short and simple...i didnt lose track of the storyline at all! worth the money
Come Out To Play
One of the best films ever. Great story though if you have read the book and not seen the film, don't be expecting it to resemble the book. Its full of quotable lines and memorable characters and even 30 years after its release it seems fresh. Highly recommended
The Warriors may have a bit of pantomime with its colourful gangs and stylised tough violence, but its a great watch! I remember it fondly for the effect it had on me at 13, seeing the leading characters face casual violence everywhere. it's a grim but compelling entertainment and if it's dated I don't care. I recommend it. (Review by Coolhandlee)
