Now, look what we have here before us. We got the Saracens sitting next to the Jones Street Boys. We’ve got the Moonrunners right by the Van Cortlandt Rangers. Nobody is wasting nobody. That… is a miracle. And miracles is the way things ought to be.

For a film that’s considered grindhouse, and was derided as exploitative on its release, the film is very striking visually. The opening sequence’s mise en scene is exceptionally thoughtful and the chiaroscuro lighting of this sequence’s two shots is stunning. Aside from

the mood and tension conveyed by the lighting, location is hinted at through the use of tinted rim and fill lighting. The lighting throughout The Warriors is consistently awesome. From the dark, neon streets through to the harsh fluorescence of the subway cars and stations and the sickly morning, the sense of place is always right on.

Again, for what is generally considered to be a “light” film, the film’s arguably most memorable scene – the meeting of the gangs – reveals the scope of the production, with a cast of thousands of the most ostentatious gang members in history, outside of The Bronx Warriors.

Speaking of scope, the graphic design of the gang insignia and graffiti deserves mention, with a gritty, authentic and most of all consistently unique feel for the logos and tags used throughout.

The problem in the past has been the man turning us against one another. We have been unable to see the truth, because we have fighting for ten square feet of ground, our turf, our little piece of turf. That’s crap, brothers! The turf is ours by right, because it’s our turn. All we have to do is keep up the general truce. We take over one borough at a time. Secure our territory… secure our turf… because it’s all our turf!

You’re standing right now with nine delegates from 100 gangs. And there’s over a hundred more. That’s 20,000 hardcore members. Forty-thousand, counting affiliates, and twenty-thousand more, not organized, but ready to fight: 60,000 soldiers! Now, there ain’t but 20,000 police in the whole town. Can you dig it?
