Time I think has lessened the impact of The Warriors but then I think that might have something to do with the fact that I was 12 years old and snuck into the local fleapit to watch it back in the 80's,so that in itself made it edgy and shocking.Still a brilliantly put together Gang/Action flick but very much of its time.

Wouldn't say this is a classic, but it's a great idea for a movie, but oddly, there's not a lot of violence in it. Most of the Warriors don't look hard enough to be warriors, there just isn't enough in there to warrant calling it The Warriors. I hope there's a remake at some point with actors that look hard for the role. I've rated this 3 stars, which is just above average.

It's surprising that I hadn't seen this film before last week, as it's a pretty popular cult film. The sort of thing I love. They mustn't have had a copy in my local xtra-vision in it's rental hay-day and I don't recall it being shown too often on television. Alas after many recommendations I finally got around to purchasing it last week and I enjoyed the hell out of it.

The premise is one of those cool, cartoony, heightened reality situations that sees a tough gang called "The Warriors" fighting for their lives, after being unfairly blamed for the murder of a rival gang members leader. To return to their home territory they must fight their way through rival gangs hostile neighbourhoods. Each gang has a cool, comic book-like colourful motif that separates them from each other. The action and fight scenes are surprisingly gritty and thoroughly enjoyable.

Also worth mentioning is to look out for a young James Remar (TV's Dexter Morgan's daddy), playing The Warriors hot-headed, temperamental member Ajax. Remar was famously cast as Hicks in James Camerons "Aliens" but fired and replaced with Michal Biehn after a couple of days shooting.

This can only be described as a truly brilliant gang film.Set in a neon New York City gangs from all the suburbs of New York head to a meeting to hear what the head of all gangs has to say.After a rival gang shoot the head gang member the Warriors are framed for the murder.
With the gang truce now called off and every gang in New York put on full alert for the Warriors they have to use your own cunning ways to come to terms with losing their leader and inner fighting to make it all the way back from the Bronx to Coney Island in one piece with every gang and police officer after them.
Brilliant storyline and superbly shot this film is really great i didnt know what to expect from a 20 year old film but i really enjoyed it and would recomended this to anyone.

  I can dig it

I love this film so much. My favourite film of all time giving how old it is. Very well acted even by today's standards, the action (fighting) is this film is also beyond excellent. When I read about the plot I thought it would be a normal movie let-down as it didn't sound that interesting, but who knew seeing 9 guys go to a meeting and only 6 return could make a fantastic movie?

I have this on normal dvd, blu-ray, and UMD for my PSP, I also have the game on PS2 and PSP, and I just got the book, and surpisingly I never get bored of it. Highly recommend this film to anybody.

I saw this film when i was 14 on BBC2 back in 1994. It STILL is a truly great film! Great music, retro-cool and mega-violent. Every guy should have a copy!

  My Favourite film of all time!

It may not be a masterpeice (in Godfather, Goodfella terms) but by God The Warriors reamins a timeless film which could and should outlast the above.
I watch it once a month and I'm still not bored of it and I never will be. Its a great friday or saturday late night movie, not brain power required, just sit back and enjoy the greatest cult classic of the 70's
