although sol yuricks book was very good, this adaption of it is marginal at best. The performances are wooden and many of the actors are miscast. The plot is somewhat similar to the book but the situations are revised to appeal to poeple with little understanding of reality. Come on, since when are there violent street gangs who weaR BASEBALL UNIFORMS AND PAINT THEIR FACES! The baseball furies looked like something out of animal house rather than the mean streets of new york. Since when are there lampposts in a cemetary? In the book the gangs acted, talked and dressed like the real thing, in this silly movie they were super stylized versions of the much more believable characters in the book. Also, since when are the cops so inept that the gangs knock them all down the subway stairs? I cannot believe that so many people like this comic bookish version of sol yurick good book. What's more tha warriors were the coney island deminators in the book, and the leader was papa arnold. The gang memebers were named hactor, lungface, bimbo and hinton, and they only faced one other gang when they were forced to walk through their neighborhood. their advemtures were more believable than the movie. Had the screenplay writer remained closer to the original source, this could have been a much better and more exciting movie.

This is a pretty cheesy flick. Our heros , accused of a murder they didn't commit, face barriers on their treck back to Coney island, by rival gangs. Lots of chasing through the subway, and unmemorable rumbles with other gangs. The movie, however, has some historic relevence in the perceptions of gangs at a time when the Guardian Angels were up and comming. Has that New York flair, but for the most part the movie is not that entertaining. Have lots of munchies on hand to get yourself through this film if you truely want to view it all .

Not all that. Action isn't interresting at all. Unless you're between the ages of 13 to when ever a person IT'S BORING! But, viewing is not for those under 17.
