    How do you review a movie like The Warriors? I've got a real short way for ya: The Warriors is the best movie of the 1970s.

    Oy vey! Such a reputation this film has! It's high time (it's only been about 30+ years!) I finally got around to it. And so what's the hoopla been all about? Well first there's the obvious plot about one tough street gang's difficult journey across The Big Apple (the most dangerous city on Planet Earth, baby!) ... at night ... and years before Disney went and cleaned up 42nd Street. But mainly what goes on is that instead of like the 1950's or 60's wherein the kids were blamed for being hooligans outright, here it's the dilapidated urban landscape that makes really good hearted kids into the animals society fears. Whatever the supposition it was cool watching nice kids acting like they was bad, and checking out the 70's idea of tough fashion choices. Fun.

    A visionary cult-film with a vibrant flow. Walter Hill's The Warriors is a stylistic action-based film that possesses that futuristic vibe with a violent and urbanized tone. The film is an exceptional portrayal and interpretation of gang control and its ties with Greek mythology. All members of all gangs play well in giving off that rugged attitude and swagger and makes the film that much more unique. 4.5/5
