"The Warriors" is an excellent film. I absolutely love the concept of the story, and I believe it has been executed very well. The fight scenes are put together with aplomb and there are even some impressive performances by the lead actors which, for a relatively low-budget 70s film, is a bit of a rarity.

However, Walter Hill has done what seems to be the norm with film studios these days and alter the original cut. I'm fine with this if the main draw of a new version is previously unseen footage or new bonus commentaries; however in the case of "The Warriors" the main addition is a series of animated, comic-book style stills that separate the scenes and supposedly add to the narrative. The idea is that it makes the film less of a realistic documentary and more of the stylised fantasy it was originally intended to be. This sounds all well and good on paper, though in reality it just feels out of place and a bit cheap. Worse still, there is no way to view the film minus these animations. I appreciate that this new cut is likely to divide opinion, but for me it ruined the pace of the film and really harms the enjoyment of what still is, a very good piece of cinema. If you can track down the original release on dvd, then I would recommend that instead. If you can't, then buy this version anyway and grit your teeth during the animated stills, because I don't believe that a director's unnecessary tampering should prevent you from watching what is ultimately, a very good film.

As others have said, the comic strip introductions to several scenes really messed the film up. As soon as I saw this cut, I rushed out the next day and changed it for the original DVD of the film. Buy the "Paramount Originals" UK DVD with theatrical poster if you can get it.

Released in 1979 and directed by Walter Hill with a whole load of controversy attached to it because of its depiction of violence mixed in with New York gang culture this is truly a classic of 70's cinema, who can forget going to fancy dress parties where guys were dressed in Baseball uniforms and had black greasepaint on one side of their faces and white on the other side and people quoted the dialogue like "can you dig it" and of course "warriors come out to play" and the pirate radio D. J. Played by Lynne Thingpen to great effect with her lines "let's get down to it boppers".

The story may be simple in its content but there are genuine feelings of being the pursued and getting back to the familiar and a place that feels like home which are still relevant today.

I have to agree with other reviewers and say I much preferred the version of this film I saw at the cinema to this re-cut version for this 2005 DVD release.

I may ditch this copy and see if I can find the original incarnation from 2001, I wonder if the Blu-ray could have both cuts of the film on it now that would be cool.

This release is in 5.1 surround sound and 1.78.1; the cinema release was in mono but was in the same aspect

This is one of those films that I could watch once a month. The weird looking street gangs and the eight anti-heroes trying to make it back to their own territory, keeps your attention without any problem. The directors cut takes nothing away from the origional for me. It does have a more comic book feel of course, but the was Hill's intention and he says this before the film.
The music fits perfectly with the chase and none of the magic is lost.
In the extras, there are some interviews with the actors as they are today, and the ageing differences are amazing! There is also a journey through the making of the movie in parts that allow all to talk about what they saw as happening and this allows a much deeper understanding of the whole film.
I have always felt that Hill should have done an immediate sequel about "The Lizzies" the only girl gang in the story, but who for me, almost nick the film!
Still brilliant!

By Bob Salter TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 28 Nov. 2010
Format: DVD
I am a huge fan of the monumental account by the Greek classical author and accomplished soldier Xenophon, that told the story of 10,000 Greek mercenary soldiers who were led by Cyrus the younger in an attempt to depose his brother Artaxerxes the second, who held the throne of the vast Persian empire. This culminated in the battle of Cunaxa in 401 BC, which took place in far off Mesopatamia, in what is now known as Iraq. Despite winning the battle Cyrus their paymaster was killed and so they marched back towards far off Greece, which took them across many miles of hostile terrain, where they fought many rearguard action against the Persians and skirmishes with the peoples of varied regions. It was a long and exhausting journey, and perhaps the greatest military story ever told. Even today it resonates down the years and strongly influenced Walter Hill's 1979 film "The Warriors".

In the film, nine members of a gang called "The Warriors" attend a meeting by gang leader Cyrus, who tries to unite all the gangs of New York. "Do you dig it". Matters are then complicated when Cyrus is shot and "The Warriors" are blamed. The gang have to make their way back to home turf on Coney Island, but the word is out, and they are hunted by a whole host of weird and wonderful gangs, which resemble the strange peoples that Xenophon and the 10,000 encountered. One lot looked as if they were off of the "Clockwork Orange" set! The film follows the story quite closely as the gangs leader Cleon, Clearchus in the Persian expedition, is killed early on, leaving Swan, yes Xenophon, to lead the gang back home. Other Greek elements are included with a group of deadly female Amazons/sirens tempting our heroes. The most memorable moment in the book is also reenacted when the gang reach the sea.
