Plot: In the near future, a charismatic leader summons the street gangs of New York City in a bid to take it over. When he is killed, The Warriors are falsely blamed and now must fight their way home while every other gang is hunting them down. Runtime: 92 mins Release Date: 09 Feb 1979
Walter Hill shows his directing flair again for action, drama and style in this crackling 1979 movie about a Coney Island gang falsely accused of murder and fleeing from everyone....including the other NYC gangs and the New York City Police Department. Set amongst a hostile, nocturnal world of neon lit train stations, baseball bat wielding gang members and lethal women "The Warriors" moves along at a frantic pace with a fine selection of young actors taking the lead. Michael Beck plays the cool headed, "war chief" Swan, seeking to get the other members back home to Coney <more>
Island alive and in one piece. James Remar is unforgettable as the woman chasing, hot headed Ajax...always out to prove his manhood with his fists. And David Patrick Kelly is perfect as the murderous, but ultimately cowardly leader of the Rogues. Attending a combined gangs meeting deep in the South Bronx to hear the Gramercy Riffs plans to control the streets of New York, the Warriors are wrongly accused of the shooting death of their charismatic leader, Cyrus. The finger of blame pointed their way, they flee via any means they can and upon their way back to home base encounter violent opposition from the Orphans, the Turnbull AC's, the Baseball Furies and even rifts within their own ranks lead to trouble. A colorful, exciting and fast paced film...at the time of it's original release it drew criticism for allegedly encouraging gang activity, but now seems almost cartoon like in it's displays of violence.Hands down a great film,stands the test of time. 1 million stars
The Warriors may be a camp conceptual ballet choreographer's vision of street life, but it still rocks the bells. The names, the music, the design, the simple story and don't forget those jackets are flick knife sharp. Why don't gangs this uber kuhl exist anymore? Because they never did, or can't you remember that, old maaaan?On the train journey home, contrast the affluent optimism of the young couples, laughing with flowers after the big show, with the filthy, bedraggled and hopeless ghetto pride of Swan and his desperate squeeze. Only one side of the carriage looks <more>
embarrassed, and it ain't the Warriors, baby.Makes me wanna rumble in slo-mo on roller skates.

The Warriors, headed by Swan Michael Beck , framed for killing Cyrus, a gang leader that would've united all of them, have to get home to Coney Island while all the rival gangs are gunning for them in this slightly surreal, slightly futuristic classic. All of the actors were brilliantly casted and well acted, not the least being David Patrick Kelly as highly memorable villain, Luther Waahhrriioors come out to pllllllaahhhhyyyaaaa, is all I have to say . The new Director's cut which adds a prologue text crawl that ties it more firmly to an ancient Greek tale, as well as comic book <more>
wipes that transitions some scenes, may dumb it down a tad and spell it out for the audience too unsubtly, but it does NOT diminish from the overall greatness of the movie in the least. The superb director/ writer Walter Hill has made some all-time classics with "48 Hrs.", "The Getaway", "the Driver", Red Heat", among others. ALL of them much loved by me and to say that this film is hands down the best of all is quite a compliment indeed. Followed by a video game based on it by Rockstar that looks simply amazing and a planned remake that will in no way even hope to be as half as good as the original It won't even have the great Baseball Furies, I mean, come on now!! My Grade: A+ Director's Cut DVD Extras: An Introduction Walter Hill; A little over an hour long documentary cut into 4 featurettes The Beginning: From Novel To Screen, The Battleground: Casting the Warriors, The Way Home: Making The Warriors, and The Phenomenon: Releasing the Warriors ; Theatrical trailer; Video Game Trailer; and Trailers for "P Diddy's Bad Boys of Comedy", "Airplane: Don't Call me Shirley Edition", "Hustle & Flow", "Macgyver", "George Lopez: Why you crying?", & "the Godfather"
Wow, I haven't been this amazed in a very long time. Where was I living all this time that not once did I hear anything about this movie. "The Warriors" is one of the best moves of the 70's and it definitely deserves more recognition than it apparently has. There isn't a single thing in this movie that disappoints, on the contrary, everything in it is brilliant. The acting, the very cool costumes, the amazing photography, the great adrenaline music, the fight sequences, the minimalistic plot, and of course the memorable one liners. From the moment it starts "The <more>
Warriors" just never loses its fast pace and we're not able to rest until the end. There are very few movies I wish would have last longer, there are even fewer that ended perfectly and "The Warriors" is one of them. If people though "Taxi Driver" was controversial they probably didn't see this movie. Cop bashing, interracial skinhead gangs, pretty girls that put out on every other corner; man, I'm not the least bit surprised that people wanted to imitate the Warriors. I felt like it today and I thought I was past that faze. All the praise to Walter Hill for helping make one of the best movies I've ever seen. The photography, that can only be surpassed by individuals the kinds of Kubrick and the shere minimalism of just about everything, even the deserted streets of New York, have never been more powerful. This is cult at its best. 9/10
Patrick Kelly, the best soft-spoken killer since Andy Robinson in "Dirty Harry." (by Nazi_Fighter_David)
A gang called the 'Warriors,' exhibits qualities characteristic of classical heroes: gallantry, self-pride, loyalty, discipline, and most of all, the ability to fight...It is night in New York city... Nine leather-vested members of this small bunch, board a subway leaving their Coney Island turf and travel to Van Cortland Park in The Bronx...The 'Warriors' are only one of many in New York street gangs who have sent representatives to a unification meeting called by Cyrus Roger Hill , the lord of the largest and most powerful gang in the city, the Gramercy Riffsa black gang <more>
all in their silk pajamas and Kung Fu shirts...Cyrus speaks to the huge gathering, explaining that all the gangs must unite, that together they outnumber the police three to one, that together they can consolidate forces and rule the city... There is wild cheering... And suddenly, out of no where, a mean, small-minded person pulls his gun and shoots to kill... The cowardly little guy of the Rogues quickly yells out that is was Cleon Dorsey Wright , the Warriors' chief, who killed the legendary leader...In the confusion, and while the police crowds into the park and the congregated gangs flee, Cleon 'get busted' by those who think he murdered Cyrus...Without their leader, the Warriors 'got to stick together, and fight-to-survive.' They attempt to make the long hazardous journey to Coney Island hunted by every gang and cop...Swan Michael Beck , the cool headed 'war chief,' assumes command... Of his followers only Ajax James Remar gives him trouble...Their perilous journey home is filled with considerable amount of risks as they face violent encounters with different gangs in many shapes and colors...'The Warriors' is a film that will make most viewers cringe at times, but you'll forgive the shortcomings and praise the exciting camera-work, the excellent use of music, and the good performance of David Patrick Kelly, the best soft-spoken killer since Andy Robinson in "Dirty Harry." The great moment in the movie is when Patrick Kelly, clicking together three soda bottles, coaxes the Warriors out of hiding by whining over and over, "Warriors, come out and play!"
Awesome cheesy 70's street gang flick! (by Captain_Couth)
The Warriors 1979 was Walter Hill's street gang masterpiece. It's so cheesy and highly entertaining. The Warriors, along with all of the street gangs in the New York City area are invited to a "street gang "convention" headed by the leader of the city's biggest gang Cyrus. Cyrus has a vision, to unite all the gangs and take over the city. Each gang brings their leader and eight "representatives" to the meeting. The film follows the gang with it's main emphasis on the Warriors.These are no ordinary street gangs. They're as flamboyant as their <more>
names. You have gangs of mimes, baseball playing clowns, greaser gangs, rejects from the "Wanderers" by the way another great film about street gangs , skinheads, kung-fu gangs, a lesbian gang , a redneck gang and one gang that actually "pays" to get on the subway! Despite the movie being filled with cartoonish gangs, this movie took a lot of heat for "glorifying" the gangs and caused major problems with violence amongst the movie going patrons in several cities.If you're in the mood for a good old fashion cheese fest filled with hard edge violence, bad dialog, over the top acting and blatant homo-eroticism then this movie's for you. Grab some popcorn and a couple a beers cause it's movie time! Highly recommended.P.S. Check out the musical solo by Luther David Patrick Kelly accompanied by coke bottles!
"Listen boppers", this is a great gang flick that has a small crew chased down by every gang in NYC after they are wrongly accused of killing Cyrus the local crime boss at the Bronx Zoo. The Warriors have to make it from the Upper Bronx to Coney Island with every gang in town trying their own unique ways of knocking them off. Baseball mimes, Roller Skating posses, chick gangs, and of course, the "Riffs" do their darnedest to knock off the resilient Coney Island gang before they can make it back to their stomping ground. A local radio announcer the woman from "Where <more>
in the World is Carmen San Deigo?" narrates their progress downtown, tipping off rivals and setting up further confrontation. A great movies for all ages.
In a near future, Cyrus Roger Hill is a respected leader that intends to unite the gangs in New York. Cyrus invites the most relevant gangs for a meeting at the Central Park, a neutral turf in a moment of truce. He explains that if the gangs unite, they would be 60,000 members against 20,000 policemen and they could rule New York.Out of the blue, the punk Luther David Patrick Kelly shots Cyrus and blames The Warriors, a gang from Coney Island. There is a riot in the Central Park and the police arrive and put the group under siege. The Warriors try to return to Coney Island while all the <more>
gangs decide to hunt them down. The long journey back home of The Warriors begins."The Warriors" is a cult movie directed by Walter Hill with the story of a gang falsely accused of murdering a charismatic leader that spend the night trying to get back home. The full of action story has stunning characters and a wonderful chemistry between Swan, performed by Michael Beck, and Mercy, performed by Deborah Van Valkenburgh. David Patrick Kelly is scary in the role of the psychopath Luther and the choreography, costumes and cinematography are top-notch. This is another movie that has not aged and even after watching it so many times, I do not get tired of it. My vote is eight.Title Brazil : "Warriors - Os Selvagens da Noite" "The Warriors – The Savages of the Night"
Your just part of what's happening tonight, and it's all bad! (by sol-kay)
****SPOILERS**** "Nine guys no weapons" thats the word going around on the mean streets of New York City about the conditions for the big gang pow-wow up in the Bronx that "The Warriors" a Coney Island street gang took the subway from their home base in Southern Brooklyn to attend.Cyrus, Roger Hill, the leader of the city's biggest street gang "The Riffs" will be the main speaker laying out the strategy for the gangs of New York eventual take over of the city. Telling the thousands of gang members assembled at the Bronx's Van Cortlandt Park that if they <more>
unite and stop fighting with each other they can become the most powerful force in the city, five times bigger that the NYC police department, an urban army that will have the "Big Apple" and everything in it just for the taking. Before Cyrus can finish his speech a shot rings out from the crowd and he falls to the ground dead. Unjustly accused by the real killer of Cyrus of murdering him "The Warriors" are on the run for the entire film from the upper reaches of the Bronx to their home in Coney Island, the longest trek on the NYC subway. By the time that they make it back in the morning they'll not only be exonerated of Cyrus' murder but will earn the respect and admiration of all the gangs that were out to capture or kill them that horrifying night. But "The Warriors" paid a heavy price in their run for freedom they lost three men, Cleon Fox & Ajax, Dorsey Wright Thomas G. Walters & James Remar.One of the best movies ever about survival on the streets of New York City or any other big urban metropolis for that matter with a heart thumping run-for-your-life by the gang from Coney Island through the streets and on the subways of New York while being attacked on all sides by murderous street gangs and police alike. The gangs who got the word from the Riffs high command to waste "The Warriors" for the death of their leader Cyrus make "The Warriors" long journey back to Brooklyn like a journey through the bowels of hell itself. The movie "The Warriors" is more like a movie about a group of soldiers then that of an urban street gang who's trapped behind enemy lines, and being attacked by the enemy forces from all sides, as they try to make it safely back to their home base in Coney Island fighting for their lives every step of the way. There are a number of penetrating and individual stories among those involved. There's Swan, Michael Beck,who took over the leadership of "The Warriors" when their leader Cleon was wasted at the beginning of the film. Cool sure of himself and intelligent Swan guided the battered group back home under conditions as deadly as any a group of fighters would face in a real war zone. There's Ajax, James Remer, who's macho attitude as well as his big stud image of himself got the best of him when he was hand cuffed to a park bench and clobbered by the police when he tried to "make it", against the advice of his fellow "Warriors", with an undercover policewoman. There's Rembrandt, Marcellino Sanchez, "The Warrior" artist or marker who saved his fellow gang members from the girl gang "The Lizzies" when he realized that they were setting him and his fellow "Warriors" up for the kill. And there was Mercy, Deborah Van Valkenburgh, who hitched on with "The Warriors" after inciting the gang "The Orphans" on them. We soon begin to see, like Swan did, that her yarning for violence and excitement was a cover for the loveless and hopeless life that she led. By the end of the movie with the sun rising over the sands and ocean of Coney Island and "The Warriors" back home vindicated and free from gang attacks they come to realize after that night of horrors that thy just lived through things will only get better because the worst that they could have ever imagined to have happened was now behind them. Powerful movie that has reached cult status since it's release back in 1979 and justifiably so; the movie "The Warriors" is defiantly a WINNER.
