Can You Dig It? ‘The Warriors’ Turns 40
  |  

The Warriors, the comic book-stylized film in which a New York City gang tries to make its way home after being wrongly implicated in a key gang leader’s death, celebrated its 40th anniversary this month.

Initially released to controversy due to copycat violence in some theaters during some of the screenings and the burgeoning presence of real-life gangs roaming New York streets, The Warriors has since become a symbol of pop culture iconography both as a cult classic to generations of fans globally and an early template for the kind of action films that mixed comic book narrative and martial arts-stylized fight sequences.

Last week on Gotham, Nygma (Cory Michael Smith) searched for a new Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), and killed as each genius failed. He took drugs to see a Penguin hallucination. Finally realizing he needed a nemesis, he sent a message to the GCPD to smoke out Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie), and got Lucius Fox (Chris Chalk) instead. He held Harvey (Donal Logue) hostage, but Fox saved him. Uncle Frank (James Remar) tried to convince Jim to join the Court of Owls to take it down from the inside. The Court replaced Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) with his doppelgänger. Poison Ivy (Maggie Geha) saved Penguin from the river, who vowed revenge.

Last week on Gotham, Jerome Valeska (Cameron Monaghan) was finally revived sans face, after the GCPD chased his face-wearing resurrector around the city. He and Lee (Morena Baccharin) had a cackling conversation about what he’s missed since his death. Barbara and Tabitha (Erin Richards, Jessica Lucas) took out the rest of the heads of the families, as they went further in their “Operation Destroy Penguin” (Robin Lord Taylor) plan. Selina’s mom betrayed her, and she and Bruce (Camren Bicondova, David Mazouz) are on the outs because he knew it. Jerome went on TV and urged everyone to commit crimes. The lights went out in Gotham, as Jim (Ben McKenzie) watched, horrified.

The panel was entirely Q&A with fans, which was cool since the Main Stage area was packed with Warriors fans, many in full cosplay.
