1990: The Bronx Warriors (1982)

A respectful rip-off of The Warriors (1979) and Escape from New York (1981) that has barely enough original content to keep the lawyers at bay.
The daughter of someone important is hiding out in the Bronx, a lawless 'no man's land' controlled by gangs. Trash, the hero (that’s really his name), must cross territories controlled by rival gangs in order to get her back home.
I adore both of the previously mentioned films, so TBW should’ve been right up my alley. It is, kind of, but the English language ADR really hurts the final product. It's a cult film fully deserving of the re-release, but it's one that requires a thick rose-tinted lens placed between a viewer and their TV.
