It's both surrealistic pop art and sentimentalized pandering to the attitude of "us against them," the have-nots against the haves.

A bad joke shoddily disguised as a gritty urban thriller. Didn't any of these guys have subway tokens?

If the movie is not as dangerous as its detractors claim, neither is it as glorious and memorable as some of its less discriminating admirers would have it.

Just what is the fanboys' beef with the new DVD "Director's Cut" of The Warriors, anyway?

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.

The only trouble is that I half expected them to break out into song and dance any minute a la West Side Story.

Tight, terse and tough. The great Walter Hill once again proves he has few equals when staging intense confrontations.

The movie can also be enjoyed, and enjoyed thoroughly, as a mean, dirty piece of pulp mythology.
