Great film, I watched it about 16 years ago in a hotel room in Brighton (Was only 14!) and thought it was really good...

Watched it again a few years ago and bought the DVD...

Anyone tried the video game on XBOX/PS2? I think I have it on XBOX but not played it yet.

These gang films were great back in the day. The Warriors, Quadrophenia, even The Wanderers (Baldies!! :lol: ) Please God, no remakes!

Just found out it is indeed a book based on the ancient Greek story, decided I'm going to pick up both of those now to go alongside the DVD. It's a great film that while stylised and "of an era" the basic theme lasts really. It's just a good chase movie, and I loved the different images of the gangs. To me growing up it was basically "Streets of Rage - The Movie".

As for the remake, I don't think it'll happen now. It was supposed to be a Tony Scott movie last I'd heard.

My favorite movie of all time, followed closely by Scarface.

Saw it first about 10 years ago and funnily enough I sat down and watched it again last night just to see if my feelings about it were correct and I can say now, with complete assurance, I think it's massively overrated lol
Does nothing for me at all if I'm honest which is a shame as it contains everything I like in a film but just doesn't work for me.
Then again, I am one of the few people I know who hated Nightmare Before Christmas and Scarface too :)

I liked when they fought the baseball bat guys with that censored painted on their faces. Reminded me of Kiss.

Every time I'm in New York I take the F train down to Coney Island, not just because of the film (it's awesome), but because it's a great place...
