Product Overview

Director Walter Hill claims his turf with The Warriors: Ultimate Director's Cut! It's the stunning, must-see version of the classic film, loaded with special features that pack extra punch. The Warriors are ready to fight their way back to Coney Island, but standing in their path are some of the baddest, out-for-blood gangs in New York City. It'll take every bit of street smarts and every weapon they can find to make it back alive!

Review "There are certain films that by some unforeseen circumstance tap into a generation, a culture, a time, perfectly. The Warriors is just such a film. It is by no means a perfect movie. It is well crafted and dramatic, but what moves it beyond cult adoration and fanboy drooling is its epic storyline and intensely rendered narrative...The Warriors isn't really a movie about a gang trying to get home. It's an archetypal tale of survival, of revenge, of power and corruption and the human spirit...The Warriors is a film unlike any other, an amalgamation of classic hero mythology, hoodlumism, hip '70s kicks, and youthful exuberance. It is a film of raw power and arty excess, a perfect gem of counter-culture ""new"" mythology in which the collective power of unrefined youth overcomes the corrupting influence of uniformity."

Review "The violence that accompanied The Warriors first theatrical run seems shocking nearly three decades later, mostly because the gangs portrayed in the movie bear hardly a passing resemblance to reality. The Warriors themselves, a multiracial bunch in sleeveless leather vests, aren't exactly intimidating; only thuggish Ajax, animated by Remar's surly glower, seems capable of committing real mayhem. Many of the remaining gangs are so stylized as to be campy, comical creations, like the gang of mimes or the Baseball Furies in their KISS-like makeup and uniforms that look like relics from the Babe Ruth era...Mostly, after 26 years, The Warriors holds up beautifully in both content and presentation...All in all, this is an excellent addition to the phenomenon known as The Warriors. ""Come out to pla-a-a-y!"""
