  • Urban lawlessness of New York City street gangs is the theme of Walter Hill's violent and influential drama. When a powerful gang leader is shot during a meeting between all of the city's gangs, the blame is pinned on a Brooklyn clan known as the Warriors. Now members of this small bunch face a night of terror, as they try to return to Coney Island with an army of thugs hot on their trail. It's a long subway ride from the Bronx to Brooklyn, and anything can happen!

    "...[Hill] is on to something....A stark yet extravagant visual style..."
    New York Times

    USA Today

    "...Rousing '70s filmmaking..."
    Entertainment Weekly

    4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]rue to the city and time....[With] the greatest cinematic beach showdown this side of QUADROPHENIA."
    Rolling Stone

    "[W]hile you'd have to be crazy to want to return to that dismal, dangerous New York City, it sure does look seductive on film."
    New York Times

    Ranked #9 in Uncut's Best DVDs Of 2005 -- "Walter Hill's tense, mesmerising gang thriller from 1979 gets the full whistles-and-bells treatment."
