The Warriors

November 9, 2018

[School of Movies 2018]

In an alternate future New York a thousand gang members from a hundred gangs convene to hear one man speak about ending their petty conflicts, and unifying against the police. His assassination is blamed on one hapless group, who head home to Coney Island with everyone else on their tail. 

The world this puts forward became the basis of the side-scrolling brawler in video games of the 80s. Double Dragon, Final Fight and Streets of Rage all owe something to this Neonpunk nightmare, directed by Walter Hill.
