Entertaining, campy, and fun cult flick elevated by its source material.

Walter Hill's cult hit about street gangs in New York is a gritty but often silly action movie that actually doesn't have much action but it packs a distinctive comic-book vibe blended in 1970s style that keeps you entertained. In fact, if you watch the director's cut, it actually pans in and out of frames like an actual comic book. The campy acting, the costume design, and the colorful cinematography reminds audiences that this is not meant to be taken seriously and it's all the more fun for it. Although the protagonists have a strong rapport with one another and remain likeable, it is David Patrick Kelly steals the the show as the weaselly villain that sneers "Warriors...come out to play!".

Our Daily Free Stream: Walter Hill - The Warriors. Gefragt ist Walter Hill vor allem als Produzent der Alien Reihe. Wer aber erinnert sich noch an Hills eigene Regie Arbeiten? - The Warriors aus dem Jahr 1979 (dem Jahr, in dem alle grossen Gang Filme das Licht der Welt erblickten) ist eine Besondersheit! Dieses Werk über den Strassenkrieg in New York gerät zu einer einzigen Stilübung des Manierismus. Kaum ein Moment, in dem wir glauben möchten, dass die Warriors, ihre Feinde, ja sogar die Strassen, in denen sie kämpfen, echt sind. Ich denke nicht, dass es die Absicht Walter Hills war, dass wir das annehmen sollen. Deshalb ist The Warriors so ungewöhnlich, denn wir bekommen einen "Male Rampage" Action Film als Ballet, als Opernstück in verschiedenen Akten dargeboten. Ein typische...

Warriors come out to plaaay.

An actually fast-paced, entertaining, late 70's b-movie. Really there was nothing to complain about from this film as long as you weren't expecting the film to change the world. It's about a street-gang, The Warriors, who are framed by another rival gang, The Rogues, for killing the Cyrus, the leader of the largest gang in the city. They must fight to get back to their home turf, Coney Island. But, a hit has been put out on them and they must fight their way back.

The acting is about what you would expect, no Oscar winners here. But it's really well paced, only 90 minutes long. It's got a killer soundtrack, it reminded me of 2011's Drive, but not as campy. This music had some darker undertones. Not quite as neon-toned as the score for Drive, which was set in California, not New...

The simple plot of the 1979 cult classic film The Warriors certainly points you in the wrong direction about the movie. When a man named Cyrus tries to join together over 100 different gangs in New York, he is shot and killed during his speech. Being blamed for this killing, Th Warriors fight to get home, as they are constantly distracted by attacks of local gangs, women and others. This plot is yet again, simple. So we watch a whole movie about 8 people getting home to Coney Island. Seems like a waste of time. This movie is awesome. This review is based off of the Directors Cut version of the film, not the original version, so some little things may be off to those who seen the original.

Since this movie is a classic, effects and action wise, dont expect huge explosions and tons of g...

I agree with what the other two users have said. It's a cheesy cult classic, but a good movie nevertheless. I enjoyed it so much that I bought the damn thing. lol.

There is an all-female gang in The Warriors, so it's not misogynistic.  I wouldn't say being female automatically disqualifies you, however, being against totally cheesy cult films would stop you. I thought it was pretty good, in that totally cheesy kind of way.

It is the start of cheesy 80's classics (even though it was 1979). I liked the movie but I also liked a lot of bad movies like it.

Wow this movie looks really bad to me. Is it because I'm female?
