The Warriors

Visible crew/equipment: When the leader of the Riffs' finds out it wasn't the Warriors who killed Cyrus there is a focused shot on his face and his sunglasses reflect a crewmember wearing a white T-shirt next to what looks like a camera. It has to be a crewmember as no-one in that scene is wearing a white T-shirt.

Continuity mistake: Swan tears a piece of the girl's skirt to make the fuse for the Molotov Cocktail, but her skirt is never shown to have a tear in it after that scene.

Continuity mistake: When the 'Punks' first come into the bathroom looking for the 'Warriors', there is a panning, establishing shot of the whole bathroom. All three of the big mirrors in the bathroom are already broken, and the only thing left of them is the dark-colored backing material hanging on the wall. As the fight breaks out, several of the gang members are subsequently thrown against now-unbroken mirrors, shattering them dramatically.

Continuity mistake: When Swan throws his baseball bat at the cops knees in the train station, the cop falls forward with his hat still on. A few seconds later the cop's hat has somehow gotten behind him. (00:56:10)

Continuity mistake: In the Coney Island scene near the end of the movie, where the car that The Rogues are tailing The Warriors in stops, in the background shot you can see that the elevated boardwalk adjacent to the car is located about the same level as the roof of the car, and is ascending upwards towards the front of the car. In the next scene with a closeup of Luther clinking the bottles in his hand, the boardwalk is all of a sudden located much lower at the car seat level and is now descending downwards towards the front of the car.

Other mistake: The Rogues stop to make a phone call at a candy store. The meeting in the Bronx was at midnight so it's got to be 2 or 3am. What on earth is a candy store with a little girl working there doing open at that time with nobody on the streets?

Continuity mistake: In the Coney Island scene the sky is clear and sunny when the Warriors and Rouges are talking, overcast when the Riffs appear, sunny when the Riffs jump the Rouges and overcast as the Warriors walk the beach.

Other mistake: In the park scene where the Warriors are fighting the baseball Furies, the Warriors land many punches to the faces of the Furies who are wearing some sort of make up, but none of the Warriors have any make up on their fists after the fight.

Continuity mistake: In the opening scene where the Warriors are talking amongst themselves, the shot shows Ajax say to what is presumably Vermin (due to the curly hair, necklace and the fact he's taller than Ajax) "Maybe we'll get to waste a few heads along the way." The shot then flips to show Cleon, not Vermin, who responds "You just soldier and keep your mouth shut." The shot once again flips to show Ajax and the back of Vermin's head.

Factual error: In the scene showing the exterior of the "96 Street" subway station (at Broadway), the building shown is the 72 St station with the number changed from 72 to 96.

Visible crew/equipment: Just after Luther accuses the Warriors of killing Cyrus, and Cleon is killed, there is a panning shot of all the gangs escaping and at the very right edge of the screen you can see a Panavision camera and its operator filming.

Other mistake: The gang gets separated after an intense cop chase through the subway station and Cochise, Rembrandt, Vermin escape aboard a train and end up in Union Square. The guys step out onto the corridor to an empty platform, as Rembrandt comments that nobody has shown up. Vermin then grins and says "Something else just showed up!' as a gang of girls suddenly appears, standing by a stairwell, that wasn't there, across the tracks, in the same direction. (00:50:50 - 00:51:55)

Factual error: In the opening sequence highlighting the journey made on the subway; it ends with them riding the 5 Train to the end of the line in The Bronx. This would place them next to Pelham Bay Park on the Northeast corner of The Bronx. However, it is believed that the meeting took place in Van Cortland Park on the Northwest corner of the Bronx. If the meeting were held in Van Cortland Park they would have taken the 1/9 Train (s) which end at 242nd St. and Broadway right outside of Van Cortland Park. The 5 Train station would be about a 15 minute cab-ride from Van Cortland Park; and they didn't take any cabs, and they sure didn't walk that distance either.

Other mistake: At the end when the Rogues show up to see if the Warriors want to play, Swan says he'll lead them to the sand. He asks the rest of the crew if they're all packed, and when Snow asks the same, Swan pulls out a switchblade. Where did he get it? They were supposed to be unarmed when they headed up to the Bronx. If he broke the rules and had it the whole night, I would think he might have pulled it earlier while bopping his way back to Coney.

Continuity mistake: Snow's afro changes length throughout the movie. In the beginning it's medium length, when they fight the Punks later in the movie his afro is longer.

Continuity mistake: Rembrandt's hair constantly changes throughout the movie from fluffy to a more cut style.

Continuity mistake: The gang members' shadows during the Coney Island scene change from shot to shot. In some shots they are to the side of the actors and in others behind them.

Continuity mistake: The girl hanging with the Warriors is wearing high heels, but when she is running from the police through the 96th St. station with Swan, she is wearing sneakers.

Cyrus: Can you dig it?!

Trivia: In the scene were Mercy claims to have stolen the coat because the cops are looking for somebody in a pink top, she actually had to wear the coat to cover a cast on her wrist which she broke while being pulled by Fox in the 96th street station chase just before Fox's sad departure.
