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}

Did You Know?


The filmmakers discovered Mark Gregory (born Marco de Gregorio) at a gymnasium both they and he frequented in Rome, where he was known for being very quiet but stood out due to his physique. Once a worker at a local shoe store, his fiancée played a prank on him by sending his photo to Fluvia Film. He was called in for auditions and wound up beating out 2000 other applicants for the role of Trash. Gregory was only 17 at the time (the same age as the female character he protects in the film).

When Trash shoots the bounty hunter with the grappling hook, he shoots it at his stomach. After he ties it to the bike and drives off dragging the bounty hunter, the hook is now in his back. See more »

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.
