The Warriors is a 1979 cult movie about street battles between gangs from Brooklyn to The Bronx. In it, a gang known as “The Warriors” are wrongfully accused of the killing a rival gang leader, and have to try and get home to Coney Island while every gang in the City tries to get revenge.
A battle of gigantic proportions is looming in the neon underground of New York City. The armies of the night number 100,000; they outnumber the police 5 to 1; and tonight they’re after the Warriors—a street gang blamed unfairly for a rival gang leader’s death.
In this video from Rolling Stone, watch as The Warriors return to Coney Island 36 years later for one last journey on the Q train.
