This cult classic isn't all that special, but it has its moments.

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 typischer …

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 …

"The Warriors" by Yojimbo

When a charismatic leader is assassinated while trying to unite the warring gangs of a near future New York City, The Warriors are framed for his murder and they must fight their way across the city to reach the safety of their home turf.

This comic strip thriller from XY chromosome-pleasing action aficionado Walter Hill is far more about attitude than content. Looked at objectively it is largely plotless - the story is essentially just a long chase through the darkened city - there is literally zero attempt at visually representing the sci-fi aspect, and the dialogue and performances are rather amateurish. It has become something of a cult classic however thanks to the combination of an inventive soundtrack and the iconic costume design of the various gangs who all have their own …

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?
