Can you dig it? Well actually yes Mr Hill, I bloody can!
During my schooling as a teenager there were a handful of films that it was deemed cool to love, The Wanderers, Scum, Quadrophenia and The Warriors, and it’s perhaps a weird thing to say… but I still feel here in my middle age that these are still cool films to be adored and cherished.
I have just sat through The Warriors again for about the hundredth time in my life, and it still entertains me as much now as it did back then, sure it’s dated, sure I see more cheese than I thought it had back then, but I also see a visually tight movie that actually delves interestingly into the lives and psyche of young gangers.
The plot is simple, all the gangs of New York City are called to a meeting where they are called to unite to take over the city, the leader of the gang known as The Riffs is a guy called Cyrus who is the one calling for the unity. He is shot and killed during the rally and The Warriors are wrongly framed for his murder. The Warriors then have to make their way back home to Coney Island with every gang in the city out to kill them, and also with the police hot on their tail as well. This journey is excellent as we are introduced to a number of gangs trying to get the better of The Warriors, the fights are well choreographed, the clothes are wonderful, and some of the dialogue is now teenage folklore.
The film was criticised on release for glamorising gangs, but I fail to see how this opinion was formed, if anything, when analysing the main characters, the film has a sad streak running through it. Be that as it may, the films triumph is getting the will of the viewer to hopefully see the unfairly tarnished Warriors make it home to Coney Island, which builds to the climax of the film that is both poignant and punch the air greatness. 8/10
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.
_Final rating:★★★★½ – Ridiculously strong appeal. I can’t stop thinking about it._
Walter Hill’s stylish ‘Warriors’ packs a punch
During a gang summit in the Bronx, a rival gang leader (Roger Hill) is shot and killed. A Coney Island gang is wrongfully accused of the crime and find themselves on the run from other gangs and cops as they race back to their turf. Will they make it back in one piece?
Walter Hill’s (“48 Hrs.”) stylish tale about gang warfare packs a punch (even by today’s standards). Upon release, the film sparked controversy and was accused of encouraging gang violence. After one look, it’s not brutal, graphic or unpleasant. It’s an exciting, fast-paced, action-packed, non-bloody tale that sends a message with conviction. Most of the gangs portrayed are too cartoonish to be menacing, but yet they are unique in more ways than one. Credit should also be given to Andrew Laszlo’s photography. A cult classic. “Can you dig it?”
My evaluation: *** out of ****.
Not as good as the original….
The problem with this new DVD version is Walter Hill’s insistence on re-editing the film into a comic book story, complete with comic strip scene changes ala sin city and other such nonsense that totally removes the edge and strength of the original theatrical edit. This is a film with an action packed, adult themed feel that requires a sharp, hard delivery the way it was originally.It almost seems as if he did this edit out of some weird ambition to keep up with the new video game’s look, or to capitalize on the whole Spiderman/Batman/sin city style of movie making that is so popular now, which I think is a grave mistake. The warriors as it was first released in the theaters and on video and initially on DVD is the version you really want-it contains all the drama, intensity and new york sleaze this movie shows to perfection. I give it seven stars because the movie is great, but this new version is pretty much a waste of your time-just get the first DVD release-it really is much better.
