The Warriors

Walter Hill USA, 1979

Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Die Warriors

The best comicbook film of all time may be this film, and it wasn't even derived from a comicbook, but instead, takes from their aesthetic in a dazzling, vibrant, and exaggerated style that somehow still never loses its 1970's grit. The Warriors oozes badass in its look, tone, and style at all times. It's pulpy popcorn as pure art. And is one of macho film director Walter Hill's best.
