Walter Hill's vibrant 1979 adaptation of Sol Yurick's 1965 novel - based loosely on an ancient Greek story called "Anabasis" - is a classic cinematic record of New York City circa 1979.
| Original Score: A
Cartoonishly violent, insanely moody and pointless.
| Original Score: B
A cult film that deserves its reputation.
| Original Score: 3.5/5
One of the best gangster pictures of all time.
The Warriors Rule! One of the best action-thrillers of the 70s!
| Original Score: 4/5
Yeah, it's really good.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
The only trouble is that I half expected them to break out into song and dance any minute a la West Side Story.
| Original Score: 7/10
OK, it's not Greek tragedy, but it is based (loosely) on Xenophon, so there.
| Original Score: 3/4
Visually stunning and emotionally gripping, THE WARRIORS is a classic that, after a quarter-century, has finally recieved the loving finishing touches that it so rightly deserves
| Original Score: 5/5
See it once, and you'll want to see it again.
Tight, terse and tough. The great Walter Hill once again proves he has few equals when staging intense confrontations.
| Original Score: B+
Just what is the fanboys' beef with the new DVD "Director's Cut" of The Warriors, anyway?
| Original Score: 3/5
The movie can also be enjoyed, and enjoyed thoroughly, as a mean, dirty piece of pulp mythology.
Once-notorious gang movie, now a delightfully retro experience
A campy treat for anyone who wants to "come out and play-ay!"
An action movie of great style and energy
