Comments Off on The Warriors
” I need ta jet ta da Pottery Barn to pimp my crib. Word”
Taking place on the mean streets of New York in the early 80’s, this movie defines thick cheesy 80’s atmosphere and thin plotlines. Bad costumes, bad hair, and bad dialog, it ranks among the great early 80’s b-movies. The story revolves around a huge meeting of rival gangs in the big city. When the top gang leader is murdered in front of all the rival gangs at the meeting, the Warriors are blamed for it. Then it’s a desparate race across the city to get back to their Coney Island hideout while other vicious and badly dressed rival gangs are trying to hunt them down. Now when I say rival gangs I mean these are gangs like nothing you’ve ever seen. Some sports baseball player outfits and painted faces while carrying around baseball bats apparently for some late night games. Another gang consist of evil mimes (of course what mime isn’t evil?) This movie has got some great quotes as well like “Can you dig it?!! CAN YOU DIG IT!!!”or “Can you count, suckahs?” Watch for Roger Hills short performance as Cyrus the head gang leader. His speech is priceless…then he gets shot. Maybe the producers couldn’t afford him to talk anymore. I loved this movie, I say check it out suckah!
Rated: 9.3 out of 10
