The Warriors

Director: Walter Hill
Year Released: 1979
Rating: 2.0

B-movie from the late 70's about a gang from Coney Island accused of killing a revolutionary spokesman during a rally (I shudder to think of the possible associations Hill was going for) and forced to run for their lives is redeemable in bits and pieces, but as a whole unsuccessful. The dialogue and performances are hammy, but the atmosphere and mood are there - almost all of it was shot at night in an eerily vacant New York City (and its subway terminals). It feels a lot like the work of another Hill (Jack), Switchblade Sisters (one of Quentin Tarantino's favorite movies).
