1979 - THE WARRIORS, on Blu Ray

The Warriors was always sort of a cartoon of a film to begin with. However Walter Hill,  the director decided for the Blu Ray release to make a director's cut of the film.

He didn't add new scenes.  Instead he got the brilliant idea to add comic book panes to many of the scenes.  I suppose this was an attempt to emphasize the graphic/comic art nature of the film.  In any case his need to fool around with his film actually kind of cheapens it.  The comic book pictures just make the film look kind of silly on the Blu Ray.

If possible it's probably best to stick with a DVD of the original cut of the film.

93 minutes.
