Brief Synopsis:
I present an HD Restoration of the original Theatrical Cut of 1979's cult classic The Warriors. This Edit is based on Director Walter Hill's own remastered "Ultimate Cut" Blu-Ray.
Intention:
This is so far the only version to make it to an HD format and contained numorous audio and visual changes, most noticeably digital comic-book style bridging sections to replace the original wipes.
Additional Notes:
Using a great SD DVD transfer (Sampled at the highest possible quality) of the original cut to fill in the brief moments where footage was removed or changed, along with Hill's additions. I've tried to get this looking and sounding as close to how it used to play as possible.
Other Sources:
The Warriors Original Cut DVD
Special Thanks:

www.movie-censorship.com - For an excellent article detailing the changes.

and

Release Information
Blu-Ray (BD-25)
Special Features
7 Deleted Scenes, 2 featurettes, 2 trailers and a bonus intro.
Editing Details:
With this edit if the original frame existed in the HD cut I used it but sometimes Hill's inserted footage was accompanied by a trim of the original film by a few frames. In these cases I blended in the SD DVD. However the source is of great quality so isn't at all noticeable.
Cuts and Additions:

Great work. This was badly needed by the fans, and it's THE way to watch the movie.

Thanks for the review. Glad you liked it!

Where exactly is the bad jump cut you mentioned. I'd like to check it.

I highly recommend this version! This is the theatrical version that we should have gotten when it was released on bluray. It's exactly how I remember it now when I first saw it.
