"They are 100,000 strong" A great tagline for an even better movie. I was wondering, has anyone else seen this movie? I rented it for the 15th time today.. and I can say NOTHING but good ...

At the time of its release the film proved controversial as it was accused of glorifying gangs and inciting gang violence.

The Warriors and their Native American-themed vests look mild compared to many of the other gangs; The Baseball Furies are probably the most iconic characters in the film with their bizarre combination of baseball uniforms and brighty-coloured face-paint, though other gangs include the all-female Lizzies wearing tie-dye shirts and denim or the Turnbull A.C.'s and their skinhead punk aesthetic.

The Warriors, the protagonist gang of the film, are framed, and they must make their way home to Coney Island.
