Synopsis Urban lawlessness of New York City street gangs is the theme of Walter Hill's violent and influential drama. When a powerful gang leader is shot during a meeting between all of the city's gangs, the blame is pinned on a Brooklyn clan known as the Warriors.

It's a long subway ride from the Bronx to Brooklyn, and anything can happen!Additional cast: Dorsey Wright (Cleon), Brian Tyler (Snow), Tom McKitterick (Cowboy), Marcelino Sanchez (Rembrandt), Terry Michos (Vermin), and Roger Hill (Cyrus). Additional credits: Don Swanagan (art director), Jack Jacobsen & Al Mian (sound).Can you dig it? Cyrus (Roger Hill)...Vivid lensing....Deft editing....The cast of unknowns is remarkably strong......[Hill] is on to something....A stark yet extravagant visual style......A striking example of style and energy over content....The movie benefits from bright color schemes and occasional left-field imagery......Rousing '70s filmmaking...4 stars out of 5 -- [T]rue to the city and time....[With] the greatest cinematic beach showdown this side of QUADROPHENIA.[W]hile you'd have to be crazy to want to return to that dismal, dangerous New York City, it sure does look seductive on film.Ranked #9 in Uncut's Best DVDs Of 2005 -- Walter Hill's tense, mesmerising gang thriller from 1979 gets the full whistles-and-bells treatment.
