10 Moments From “The Warriors” That Prove It Was The Most Badass Movie Of The 70s

Directed by Walter Hill and released in 1979, The Warriors was an awesome cult classic that people still loved today. The story of a New York City gang having to fight their way back to Coney Island while pursued by every other gang in the city has given us tons of great characters, memorable lines, and awesome action. Here are 10 scenes in particular that are just flat out great.
