This page looks at some of the bloopers from the movie. The Warriors movie mistakes include scenes where the film crew can be seen in the shot through to continuity errors.
Entire Film Crew in Gunhill
During the scene when The Warriors run from the Turnbull AC’s you can see the entire movie crew watching from the sidelines.
Coney Island Ramp
After The Rogues turn up in Coney Island, they park their car next to a large ramp. In the close-up shot of Luther, the ramp is completely different as it is lower and facing the other way.
Broken Stall Door
In the fight scene with The Punks, you can clearly see that the bathroom stall doors were cut out such that they would fall apart when a stuntman was thrown through them.
Cowboy’s Magic Hat
When Cowboy gets beaten up by one of the Baseball Furies, Cowboy’s hat falls off but in the next shot, when he gets hit again and falls to the ground, his hat is magically back on his head.
When The Warriors confront Mercy after she follows them, you can see The Orphans hanging around in the background over Swan’s shoulder. However, a few seconds later, The Orphans then come running down the street. (Thanks to R. Contreras for pointing this out).
Whilst Luther is clinking the bottles together in the famous scene in Coney Island, you can hear Walter Hill say “David, Action!” right before he starts chanting. You can hear this in the sound clip below.
Vermin Relaxing With The Lizzies
When The Warriors meet The Lizzies, Cochise smiles as he watches Vermin kiss one of the girls. However, as the camera changes to Rembrandt, you can clearly see Vermin walking around in the background with what looks like a pool cue.
Red Faced Punk and Changing Spray Can
During the fight with The Punks, Rembrandt sprays a clear mist into the Punk leader’s face even though it is supposed to be red spray paint (for obvious reasons they would use water instead of paint). Also note the perfect clean circles around the Punk’s eyes showing where his eyes were clearly protected by the makeup department.
It is very much assumed that Rembrandt only has one spray can in the movie as he is only seen tagging one gravestone. However, the can he is carrying changes at least three times throughout the movie.
Fox Double Take
Thomas G Waites left the movie after 8 weeks and so the producers had to kill his character off. During the scene where Fox gets thrown under a train a stunt double was used. The stunt double doesn’t look or sound like Waites.
When Fox is thrown on to the train tracks by the cop, you can see that the actor hits a thick mat as he is too high to hit the tracks.
Mercy Lets Her Hair Down
In the same scene with Fox’s stunt double, Mercy has short hair whilst running down the stairs which suddenly becomes long when she reaches the bottom.
Wasting A Few Heads
At the start of the movie, Ajax asks Fox if they’ll be able to “waste a few heads along the way”. However it is not Fox but Cleon, who answers “you just soldier and keep your mouth shut!”. Additional scenes for this sequence were re-shot at a later date after the daytime scene at the start of the movie was cut. This could explain the inconsistency.
This Is A Graveyard
In the graveyard scene, Rembrandt is seen at the top of a statue looking for the train station. However, in the next shot with Swan, Rembrandt is still climbing up the statue.
The J Train
When The Warriors are hiding from The Turnbull AC’s their train passes by overhead. This is a ‘J’ train which didn’t go through this part of the city. Also, the return home is on a BMT train marked “RR” (internal shot with blind visible) – In 1979 this is believed to have been the line that went to Bay Ridge – nowhere near Coney Island and certainly nowhere near 14th St. (Thanks to David Smith for pointing this out). The producers admitted that no attention was paid to train markings.
