Entertainment Reviews:

Variety - 02/14/1979
"...Vivid lensing....Deft editing....The cast of unknowns is remarkably strong..."
New York Times - 02/10/1979
"...[Hill] is on to something....A stark yet extravagant visual style..."
USA Today - 01/19/2001
"...A striking example of style and energy over content....The movie benefits from bright color schemes and occasional left-field imagery..."
Entertainment Weekly - 01/19/2001
"...Rousing '70s filmmaking..."
Rolling Stone - 10/20/2005
4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]rue to the city and time....[With] the greatest cinematic beach showdown this side of QUADROPHENIA."
New York Times - 10/11/2005
"[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."
Uncut - 01/01/2006
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."

Product Description:

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!
