Cyrus, the leader of the most powerful gang in New York City, the Gramercy Riffs, calls a midnight summit for all the area gangs, with all asked to send nine unarmed representatives for the conclave. A gang called The Warriors are blamed for killing Cyrus as he gives his speech. They now have to cross the territory of rivals in order to get to their own ‘hood. The Warriors slowly cross the dangerous Bronx and Manhattan territories, narrowly escaping police and other gangs every step of the way.

90to5 Editor Bio: I’m old enough to know better but young enough to get away with it. I like nothing more than cutting things with my blade tool.
I’ve chosen to hack The Warriors (1979) down from a glorious 90mins to an exciting 5mins, with the added bonus of using the music track ‘ProtoVision’ by Kavinsky as my score. Hopefully this edit will be appreciated by the world of web.
