The Bronx Warriors Details


One of many post-apocalyptic science-fiction films which poured out of Europe in the wake of [[Performer~P206572~George Miller~georgemiller]]'s [[Feature~V30657~Mad Max~madmax]], this film stars [[Performer~P128813~Stefania Girolami~stefaniagirolami]] as Anna, who runs away from her wealthy but obnoxious family into the surrealistic biker gangland of the Bronx. There, she meets Trash (Marco de Gregorio), part of a gang called The Riders, and soon falls in love with him. Problems arise when Anna's father ([[Performer~P27114~Enio Girolami~enniogirolami]]), president of the evil Manhattan Corporation, sends in a psychopath named Hammer ([[Performer~P103603~Vic Morrow~vicmorrow]]) to stir up trouble among the rival gangs, including a black club led by Ogre ([[Performer~P116922~Fred Williamson~fredwilliamson]]) and a rollerskating group led by Golem ([[Performer~P146970~Luigi Montefiori~luigimontefiore]]). [[Performer~P84435~Castellari~enzogcastellari]]'s direction is surprisingly stylish and exciting, but all of the hyper-macho posturing eventually grows tiresome for anyone over fifteen. Still, undemanding viewers will have a good time, as the action keeps coming fast and furious, laced with suitably hardbitten dialogue by director [[Performer~P84435~Enzo G. Castellari~enzogcastellari]], [[Performer~P83013~Elisa Livia Briganti~elisaliviabriganti]] and [[Performer~P109478~Dardano Sacchetti~dardanosacchetti]]. A minor classic of testosterone cinema, followed by several sequels starting with Fuga dal Bronx (1983). ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi
