Rated 5 out of 5 by Pitchfork "CAN YOU DIG IT?"
Released in 1979, the film is about a street gang known as the Warriors who are wrongly accused of assassinating Cyrus (Roger Hill), the leader of the Gramercy Riffs, New York’s most powerful gang. With every other gang in the city believing them to be the killers of Cyrus, the Warriors are forced to bang their way back to the safety of their home turf of Coney Island.
The setting is familiar yet somewhat surreal. The gangs are all very unique and fascinating. Some of my favorites are the Turnbull AC’s, the Punks, the Baseball Furies, and the Rogues. The Warriors themselves are made up of some very colorful and memorable characters like Swan (Michael Beck), Ajax (James Remar), Cochise (David Harris), and Rembrandt (Marcelino Sánchez).
The direction by Walter Hill is tremendous. I grew up loving the original version of the film but I have to say that this Ultimate Director’s Cut is very solid. I love the comic book aspect of this newer version. Having said that though, I wish both versions of the film was included here.
The DJ and her music selections throughout the film are great. I love her “play-by-play” style of reporting the latest about the Warriors. Her final selection of “In the City” by Joe Walsh is perfect! As a side note, I think this version of “In the City” is much better than the version Walsh later recorded with the Eagles.
You’ll never forget the chant uttered by Luther, the leader of the Rogues, once you hear it. “Warriors, come out to play…Warriors, come out to play-yay!”
The Warriors is an absolute cult classic.
I highly recommend this film!
Rated 5 out of 5 Warriors DVD
I enjoyed the DVD very much. It was different from the original movie. Although I gave it a 5-star rating, I would have preferred a full screen version of it.
