In 1979, fresh from directing bare knuckle boxing movie Hard Times and supercool crime thriller The Driver, Walter Hill delivered his third stone cold classic in a row: The Warriors, a slam-bang, visually kinetic action movie that mixed a heightened comic-book sensibility with a timeless tale from ancient Greece and set them loose in the streets of modern America. In New York the gangs outnumber the cops by 5-1. Together, they could rule the city. Gang-leader Cyrus has a dream to do just that and calls a summit. The gangs of New York gather in their thousands, Cyrus takes the stage. From somewhere in the crowd a shot rings out and Cyrus falls down dead. In the chaos that follows, a small gang from Coney Island - the Warriors - are blamed. Now everyone is out to get them. On foot, in enemy territory, can they make it through the night to get back across the city to the safety of home turf? For all you boppers out there, for all you street people with an ear for the action... the iconic cult classic is back in a brand new 4K restoration approved by director Walter Hill. Can you dig it?

Press Quotes

A ballet of stylized male violence... there's great vitality and energy (and choreography and stunt coordination) in the many violent scenes of gang fights and run-ins with the cops

     —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

Full of gorgeous nocturnal city images that splash blaring neon colors against filthy, rain-slicked gray. Mr. Hill uses subways, jukeboxes, spectacularly eerie costumes and deserted streets to create a stark yet extravagant visual style

     —Janet Maslin, New York Times

[What is most frightening] is the essential truth of its basic premise: that the streets already belong to the violently, criminally inclined. The city is dying... from fear, loathing, fire & desertion. And suddenly a dark and dangerous knighthood emerges

     —Andrew Sarris, The Village Voice

The movie is like visual rock, and it's bursting with energy. The action runs from night until dawn, and most of it is in crisp, bright Day-Glo colors against the terrifying New York blackness; the figures stand out like a jukebox in a dark bar

     —Pauline Kael, The New Yorker

Mixing ironic humour, good music, and beautifully photographed suspense, it's one of the best of 1979

     —David Parkinson, Time Out
