Product Description

Product Description

A street gang is blamed unfairly for a rival gang leader's death and must fight its way home to Coney Island from the Bronx.


The Warriors combines pure pulp storytelling and surprisingly poetic images into a thoroughly enjoyable cult classic. The plot is mythically pure (and inspired by a legendary bit of Greek history): When a charismatic gang leader is shot at a conclave in the Bronx meant to unite all the gangs in New York City, a troupe from Coney Island called the Warriors get blamed and have to fight all the way back to their own turf--which means an escalating series of battles with colorful and improbable gangs like the Baseball Furies, who wear baseball uniforms and KISS-inspired face make-up. Pop existentialism, performances that are somehow both wooden and overwrought, and zesty, kinetic filmmaking from director Walter Hill (Southern Comfort, 48 Hrs.) result in a delicious and unexpectedly resonant operatic cheesiness. --Bret Fetzer --This text refers to the Blu-ray edition.

I originally could only find the directors cut of this old cult film. It has some silly carton type edits included which ruined it and then I found this original version which luckily does not have cartons and is great. Directors cut is in the bin !

There is this image that preludes the title credits of 'The Warriors' of the ferris wheel all lit up on Coney Island. It some how just stays with you after the end credits roll up and it reminds you of what a great era the 1970's was for film making, the same era that saw such classics as The Deer Hunter and Alien to name but a few. The Warriors has certainly gone on to become a cult classic and when it was released it received a certain amount of notoriety due to riots that took place in a number of cinemas. The Warriors though i think has remained popular since it has some very snappy cinematograhy, some great set pieces and was stylishly directed by one of Hollywoods great action directors Walter Hill who made other classics such as 'Driver' and 'Southern Comfort'. In The Warriors he managed to take a story of a street gang battling to get home into a drama that doesnt feel dated, more than twenty years after it was released. Indeed the only thing that felt wrong about the film was the end credits song which took it up a shade of lightness from where it did not belong. The Warriors is a very dark film, but it is also a compelling watch and yes!! admittedly there are some very violent moments though which are not gracious in their set up and are merely extensions of unspoken dialogue. What also i think makes this film such great eye candy is the cast of actors that Hill has assembled, notably 'David Patrick Kelly' as a rival gang leader who would also pop up in two of Hill's other films, 48 HRS and Last Man Standing. Just a great film all around and a soundtrack that is also worth purchasing too. Enjoy!!

The Warriors is a great film from a director who has made more than his fair share of great movies. Unfortunately, as is so often the case, directors feel the need to tinker with their films and the result is nearly always detrimental. And so it is with The Warriors.

The opening scene in The Warriors with the eerie music and Wonder Wheel in the background is exceptional. Unfortunately, in the Director's Cut it is presaged with an unnecessary comic strip alluding to the historical connection between The Warriors and ancient Greece. For me it detracts from the greatness of the opening scene.

The comic strip interludes are used throughout the rest of the movie. To me they serve absolutely no purpose - the historical allegory doesn't add anything to the story or impact of the film. If anything, they actually detract significantly from the film in three ways:

1. It slows the film down. Though this is only marginal, the padding of the cut scenes creates an unwelcome break in the action and flow of the film.

2. The strips look and feels totally wrong. They look new and computer generated whereas the rest of the film is gritty, urban and very 70s. Could Walter Hill not at least have commissioned a hand-painted washed-out 70s style comic strip? As it is, the interludes really clash with the style of the actual movie. I find it quite jarring.

3. This is a bit pedantic, but the font used in the comic strips is MS comic sans. This font wasn't produced until 1994 - decades after the movie!! Again, couldn't Walter Hill have found something contemporary to the age of the film? Or something more attractive - Comic Sans is one of the ugliest and most over-used fonts.

I should add that the BR transfer is generally very impressive.

I never, ever, ever mention the quality of Blu-Ray transfers in my reviews and always focus on reviewing the film itself - not the format. However, in this case, I'm going to make an exception, because the film looked STUNNING! ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!!!

I'm not going too talk about the film at all here - it's a classic, and I'm sure everyone reading this has seen it, or at least knows about it (briefly it's a 300 style story, where few take on many as they try to get home), what I'm going to talk about this amazing version of it.

I've never seen a Blu-Ray like it, and the effect was even more startling because of the films age. Having always seen it on VHS or TV the difference in HI-Def was mesmerising. It felt and looked like a totally different film. You could see the leather grain in the hide of the Warrior's vests for instance - the amount of detail was staggering, and this Hi-Def vibrancy and detail added a whole new element.

In fact - having watched the extras - I now know it was a level that was always there (or at least intended to be) but only now can technology relay the director's true vision to us. In the extras he talks about his original concept, and his hopes for the film; the comic book feel he wanted and tried so hard to achieve.

One way he hoped to achieve this was with the costumes or 'colours' that the gangs wore, and it's only now we can see the richness of the colours, and lustre of the fabrics used for these. The costume designs look amazing on this Blu-Ray; the silks, the satins, even the oils in the face paints and the shines of the leathers and lycras.
