The Warriors

Synopsis: Cyrus, the leader of the most powerful gang in New York City, the Gramercy Riffs, calls a midnight summit for all the area gangs, with all asked to send nine unarmed representatives for the conclave. A gang called The Warriors are blamed for killing Cyrus as he gives his speech. They now have to cross the territory of rivals in order to get to their own 'hood. The Warriors slowly cross the dangerous Bronx and Manhattan territories, narrowly escaping police and other gangs every step of the way.

- Shit!

- You all right?


Everybody quiet.

Everybody make it?

Just Cleon's missing.

- Fuzz must've got him.

- Did you see him get busted?

I seen him,

then he wasn't there no more.

I was hauling ass.

Why don't you look around,

make sure we're okay.

This is a graveyard.

What are we gonna do now?

We're going back.

You mind telling us how?

Fucking Coney Island must be

- It's the only choice we got.

- Yeah, real simple.

Except that every cop in the city

is looking to bust our heads.

- We got something to think about.

- Yeah? What?

The truce.

Is it still on?

If it ain't, we're gonna have to bop

our way back.

Shit, I wish we was packed.

If this truce is off, anything could hit us

between here and that train.

If you get separated,

make it to the platform

at Union Square.

- That's where we change trains.

- I only got one question:

Who named you leader?

I got as much right

to take over as you.

It was Cleon's choice.

Swan's war chief.

Right now Cleon's most likely got

a nightstick shoved halfway up his ass.

Shit. I bet you can't even

find the subway.

Maybe we ought to talk

about this later, huh?

Well, what's wrong with right now?

I wanna be warlord.

Make your move.

- Hey, Ajax, lighten up.

- Big boy, Swan's war chief.

We better stick together.

Hey, you guys!

The train's right over there.

Come on. Hurry up. Let's go!

Let's move.

Hey, man, don't worry about it.

Stay loose.


Rembrandt, mark this spot.

Hey! Wait for me!


Yeah, right!

Who are the Warriors?

There must be some word.

I want them all.

I want all the Warriors!

I want them alive, if possible.

If not, wasted.

But I want them.

Send the word.

All right, now, for all you boppers

out there in the big city,

all you street people
