Storyline

In a post-apocalyptic New York City, a policeman infiltrates the Bronx Warriors, which has become a battleground for several murderous street gangs. It's the dead of night, and nobody at all is on the street. On the other side of the bridge, a Manhattan runaway, girl named Young Ann is attacked by a gang of street hockey players! These guys are on roller skates, dressed in fiberglass safety gear, and are wielding hockey sticks as weapons. They chase Young Ann into a dead end and surround her, but then they are themselves surrounded by a much tougher-looking gang who at least have the self-respect to ride motorcycles. In the middle of this chaos, gang leader Trash steps in to take care of her. Written by Anthony Pereyra {hypersonic91@yahoo.com}

Trivia

Some movie posters for the film featured a preamble that read: "In the year 1990, the Bronx is officially declared No Man's Land. The authorities give up all attempts to restore law and order. From then on, the area is ruled by the Riders". See more »

Goofs

Several scenes are very obviously filmed in Brooklyn, not The Bronx. See more »

Quotes

Trash: You bastard! You work for the Manhattan Corporation!
Hammer: I work for nobody. I don't care about the Manhattan Corporation! I don't care about the girl, I don't care about politics, I don't care about anything! I believe in nothing. I'm Hammer - The Exterminator!
Trash: You're the biggest son of a bitch in the world. You're afraid somebody might remember you were born in the Bronx?
Hammer: No, you're wrong. I'm gonna make sure that nobody ever forgets.

Alternate Versions

The British and American releases differ greatly. The American Best Film & Video release is missing the opening speech where Fisher decides what to do about Anne and the fight with the camp, tap-dancing gang, scenes that are in the British release. However it gains 3 scenes on the British version:
  • A longer scene of the Riders discovering the body of Chris by the pier.
  • After Sandy and Speedy's cremation all the Riders take a handful of cremated ash and throw it into the river in a ritual.
  • A conversation between Anne and Trash on the beach, just before she is kidnapped by the Zombies, where she says she wants to leave because she feels responsible for all the deaths that have happened and Trash makes a speech about how "death is part of life, we live with it and it's scent gets on our skin". (This also makes Anne's dying words to Trash make a lot more sense at the film's close).

The Daytime version of "The Warriors"
20 March 2015 | by nick_kareSee all my reviews

Going through a phase right now of watching all these 80s cult films that i remember as a child. "1990: The Bronx Warriors" would have to be my favourite.

The costumes, the overacting, the slow fight scenes, the soundtrack of an overly distorted guitar blaring over a 1980s drum machine, the too easy to follow story lines and predictable endings, the cheap faded face paint, the heavy metal haircuts and the main characters name being "Trash"...

With that all said i wouldn't want it any other way, its downfalls keep me glued to the screen. There's crap movies that i don't bother with that make me fall sleep, then there's movies that are so bad they're great.

Labelled as a B grade movie it is definitely one of those films that u would've watched as a kid then many years later as an adult you'd be asking yourself and others "what was the name of that movie where the guy has a knife come out of the front of his cowboy boot? No not Roadhouse, it was way before that film".

Directed by the Italian director that Tarrantino idolised: Enzo G. Castellari.

This film is the daytime version of "The Warriors".

If u haven't seen it get a hold of this badass film and thank me later, believe me it will change your life.
