The Warriors Movie Summary

The Warriors takes place in a magical land called New York. Where each gang is assigned a fashion designer – while some designers are fashion forward with Broadway flare -like the Baseball Furies (a mix of Clockwork Orange, Damn Yankees, and Cats) other settle for overalls and roller skates (I am thinking that these designers really liked the closing scene in every Chips episode – except Ponch and John looked much tougher).

The story begins with the Warriors being invited to a New York gang convention pit on by the Gramercy Rifts – the Rifts are black guys with black belts – picture an army of Jim Kellys (not the Buffalo Bill quarterback) and you have the Gramercy Rifts.

The Warriors represent Coney Island and are made up of white guys (including Dexter’s dad), blacks guys, and Jews. They became the gang of Coney Island because Disneyland was too tough to conquer and Dollyworld is too gay. Isn’t being a badass gang from Coney Island like being a dangerous cage fighter trapped in Shirley Temple’s body – like a Shirley “Temple of Doom” (which I believe is a name of a band).
