MOVIES: THE WARRIORS
The story begins when 9 members of the street gang The Warriors are called to a meeting in the Bronx in which 9 members of every gang in New York will be present. Cyrus the president of the Grammercy Riffs (the largest and most powerful street gang in New York) has a plan to merge all of the street gangs into one which will outnumber the police in order to take over the city.
However during his big speech a member of the audience shoots Cyrus and the Warriors get the blame and now they must journey back home to Coney Island with every gang in the city baying for their blood.
The movie is a roller coaster ride from start to finish with constant scenes of chases, gang battles and some of the most quotable dialogue you will ever hear. The movie was shot on location in the subways, back alleys and dodgy parks of the big apple which really give it the gritty feel which the movie wants to portray.
