New York, dans un avenir proche. Le Bronx est désormais une zone interdite, un territoire que se partagent des gangs partisans de l'ultra-violence. Malheur à qui s'y aventure. Perdue, la jeune héritière d'une immense fortune de l'industrie d'armement se heurte à la bande des Zombies. Sauvée par les Riders commandées par Trash, elle est désormais l'enjeu d'une lutte féroce entre gangs rivaux et policiers corrompus... --Ce texte fait référence à une édition épuisée ou non disponible de ce titre.

Grandiose pour certains, nullissime pour d'autres, ce film ne laisse personne indifférent de par ses costumes, décors, dialogues, ... Il s'agit du nanar par excellence.
Que dire ? Petit budget, rythme catastrophique (on s'ennuie rapidement), dialogues désastreux, bref, on est bien devant une oeuvre angulaire du bis italien des années 80. Cependant, avec un peu plus de moyens, et un peu moins d'empressement, le scénario aurait peut-être pu dévoiler ses richesses inexploitées. Ce 1er épisode, même s'il a eu un succès considérable lors de sa sortie en salles est une bonne introduction au deuxième épisode, plus réussi mais moins connu. Un must pour les nostalgiques et les fans de bis.

1990 The Bronx Warriors is exactly that, a blender mix of Escape from New York, the Warriors, bad acting, and a whole lot of cheese.
And I loved it!!!!!!!
The movie is simple. A female crosses to the Bronx; which is ruled by numerous ruthless gangs including the Riders. The New York Police need that woman back and send in a specialist. But the Bronx is a no man's land and every unique gang will eventually get involved in this awesome reimagining of the Warriors meets Escape from New York.
Must watch! But please, don't expect an Academy Award winning script, just crack open a beer and enjoy the fun.
As the movie opens, we learn three things; the 1st is a young woman named Ann (Girolami) has run away from her boarding school in Manhattan, fleeing across the bridge into the Bronx, the 2nd is the Bronx has been officially declared a no man's land by authorities as they've basically given up trying to enforce the law, and the 3rd thing is the Bronx is supposedly ruled by a motorcycle gang known as The Riders (they're so cool they ride around with lit plastic skulls on their handlebars). Anyway, shortly after arriving in the Bronx, Ann is accosted by a roller skating gang but is soon rescued as The Riders, led by someone named Trash (Gregory), show up and lay the smack down. As they return to their own turf, they have an encounter with a group of dandies (dressed up like pimps, calling themselves The Tigers), led by Ogre (Williamson), who apparently rules the Bronx, which conflicts with the information given at the beginning stating The Riders ruled, so I'm confused...anyway, it turns out Ann is from an extremely wealthy family, and is meant to take on an incredible responsibility when she turns 18, which is in a few days. To facilitate her safe return, the powers that be enlist the aide of The Hammer (Morrow), a ruthless, sadistic, `play by his own rules' lone wolf type with his own agenda. As gangs clash and The Hammer plays his games (which usually involve pitting various gangs against each other), everyone is after Ann, putting Trash in the middle (Trash and Ann have developed some sort of relationship) of what looks to be a coming confrontation to see who will truly rule the Bronx...I think...there's a number of aspects to the story that weren't all that clear.
When I reflect on this film, originality is not the first thing that comes to my mind...cheap rip-off, perhaps, but not originality...I read somewhere else where someone stated it was unfair to compare this film against those that were ripped off, like Escape from New York or Walter Hill's The Warriors, because of budget differences, but I didn't see how that was relevant as a rip off is a rip off, regardless if it has a big budget or not...filmmakers worldwide tend to bereft of originality, and much focus is put forth on making money by rehashing concepts that have proven successful. In this case it is just more obvious than others...and I don't necessarily mind the blatant usage of successful concept if it is entertaining and done well...which is about half the case here...the film was entertaining, despite the fact it wasn't made very well. The biggest drawbacks are the generally unfocused plot (overall it keeps well, but its in the details things go awry), the poor scripting, and lame acting (specifically the lead). And I'll tell you what, given the Bronx was supposed to be this lawless territory ruled by violent gangs, I never got that sense...one gang was made up of nearly an all male, burlesque, tap dancing troop with painted faces, top hats and canes...another featured pasty faced ragamuffins who live in the sewers, a third featured a bunch of dandies dressed in polyester leisure suits, and then there's leather and denim clad motorcycle gang The Riders, who mostly look like carbon copies of that biker from the group The Village People, certainly not helped by a leader (Trash) who tends to sashay when he walks (turns out Gregory, the actor who played this character, was, in fact, of the swishy sort, according to Williamson, who stated he `left no footprints in the snow', meaning he was light in the loafers). There were some violent confrontations and some decent bloodletting, but most of it came at the expense of The Riders, whose members dropped like flies throughout the film, due to, in my opinion, poor leadership at the hands of Trash...by the way, if Gregory's performance seems awkward its because he didn't understand English, so when they were feeding him his lines and he would repeat them to the camera, so he had no idea what he was saying and therefore couldn't always produce the necessary expressions (I got the feeling even if he knew what he was saying it still would have been the same). At least Williamson and Morrow were fun to watch, especially Morrow, who seemed to have taken acting lessons at the Jack Palance School of Scenery Chewing (think I'm kidding? Check out Palance's performance as Voltan in Hawk the Slayer). As far as the dialog, here's an especially painful bit when Trash is opening up to Ann..."At least dying for you would give my life meaning."...oh bruther...here's another spewed forth by Ann as treachery is revealed..."Foiled at the last minute. How could you think you'd get away with it?"...cripes...the production values weren't as bad as I thought they'd be (the film was shot in Rome, with a weeks worth in New York, and the footage interspersed to give the appearance of the entire film taking place in New York). And get used to that psuedo jazz fusion musical score, as its played over and over and over...
Media Blasters really does an amazing job with this DVD release. Not only have they presented a really good looking widescreen (2.35:1), enhanced for 16X9 televisions, picture, but they've also provided the 92 minute uncut version, something not a lot of fans had seen prior. The audio also comes through well in Dolby Digital stereo. Special features include an audio commentary with the director (his Italian accent is very thick, so I was unable to listen all the way through in one sitting), along with a 40-minute interview with Fred `The Hammer' Williamson (they keep calling him `Da' Hammer, but it is really `The' Hammer), a 6-minute interview with the director, a photo gallery, and trailers for films like Flesh for the Beast (2003), Faceless (1988),2019: After the Fall of New York (1983), and Flesh Eater aka Revenge of the Living Zombies (1988).
By the way, if you watch the interview with director Enzo G. Castellari, you'll notice he's sitting in a rather nice office, but look to behind him and to the right...you'll see one of those yellow, pine tree car air fresheners hanging on his bookshelf...real classy...I guess the guy has an odor problem...and while watching the film, pay particular attention around the 57 minute 30 second mark for a nasty looking, unintentional motorcycle wipe out...
