This underrated cult classic pits warring New York street gangs against each other in a battle for justice.
Dir Walter Hill
With Michael Beck, James Remar, Deborah Van Valkenburgh, Dorsey Wright
These are the Armies of The Night. They are 60,000 strong. They outnumber the cops three to one. They could run New York City. Tonight, they’re all out to get The Warriors, a New York gang wrongly accused of the murder of a rival gang’s leader, and they must make the perilous journey from the Bronx to Brooklyn. Walter Hill’s urban western is a stylish piece of filmmaking that created headlines at the time due to violence at certain screenings, but has gone on to become a cult classic.
