Corrected entry: During auditions, the Writer (Yurick) and the Casting Manager did not want Michael Beck as Swan, as he looked too old at age 27. The Warriors were all supposed to be 16 to 24. But Walter Hill was so impressed by Beck's performance in Xanadu and his audition for this film that he cast him anyway.
Corrected entry: When the Warriors are being chased by the Orphans, the lady who is with them is running too. She is at the rear along with a Warrior. By the time they get to the subway, they are a good distance back, but by the time the Warriors reach the actual train, she has caught up to them. She is wearing high heels, so there is no way she could have caught up to them: they were running as fast as they could.Louis
Corrected entry: The Baseball Furies chase the Warriors for about 3 minutes non-stop through the park. Most of this time, the Furies and the Warriors are running as fast as they can, especially the main guy in the front closest to the Warriors. When Ajax and Cowboy of the Warriors finally decide to stop and fight, everybody running comes to a complete stop. The Baseball Furies gang member is not sweating and he's not even breathing hard. I don't know anybody, no matter how fit, who can sprint for 3 minutes and then not even breathe hard.Louis
Corrected entry: In the confrontation with The Orphans, one of The Warriors uses a petrol bomb that was hanging on a string round his neck, but at the beginning of the film much is made of the fact that they are unarmed. If they made the petrol bomb after the hassle in Central Park then it is a really bad piece of editing/continuity.
Corrected entry: Just before the fight in the subway toilet, Swan and Mercy are being watched from a distance by the rival gang. The rest of the Warriors come down the steps and Swan gestures so that they too can see the rival gang. Why are the rival gang oblivious to the Warriors' presence? Surely this is just line-of-sight.
Corrected entry: In the opening sequence when the warriors are on the train, Rembrandt is looking at a map of the train lines on the right of him there is a woman sitting down in a light blue coat, in a later scene when the warriors escape the turnbull A.C's and are on the train Rembrandt checks the map again and the same woman wearing the blue coat is there.
Corrected entry: During the battle scene in the toilets, at least one member of the rival gang is seen being thrown through a latched toilet door. This means the door would have to have been locked from the inside. Earlier the warriors had emerged from these toilets, so they are not locked, unless during the battle someone went back in the toilets, locking the doors and climbing back out over the top. If the doors were not locked, surely they would just swing open if someone went through them.
Corrected entry: The 'Punks' are chasing the 'Warriors' through the subway, and end up trapping them in a public bathroom. There is a shot of the outside of the bathroom door showing it to be a flat, featureless door with the word 'MEN' written across it. When the 'Punks' burst through the door, as it is opened, the shot from inside the bathroom now shows the door now has a large vent/grill installed about eye-level, and there is no word 'MEN' on it.
