The Bronx Warriors Trilogy

The Bronx Warriors Trilogy

1990 Bronx Warriors, The New Barbarians and Escape From the Bronx make up Italian genre director Enzo G. Castellari's The Bronx Warriors Trilogy.

Having previously also directed A Few Dollars for Django and the original The Inglorious Bastards, Castellari was tasked with creating a triptych of post-apocalyptic science-fiction action movies and wrote, prepped and filmed his pulpy futuristic gang warfare trilogy in just six months.

Full of influences from the likes of John Carpenter, Walter Hill and Sergio Leone, and elements of everything from Mad Max 2, Escape From New York and The Warriors, these three films will absolutely thrill genre and exploitation fans.

In 1990 Bronx Warriors we follow Ann, a teenage runaway, into the lawless wasteland that was once New York and is now fought over by rival gangs The Zombies and The Riders; The New Barbarians sees a pair of mercenaries including Fred Williamson (From Dusk Till Dawn) protecting peaceful nomads from bikers following a nuclear holocaust; Escape From the Bronx is a sequel to 1990 Bronx Warriors that sees the leader of The Riders return as a guerilla terrorist fighting a corporation who want to clear the Bronx and all the gangs' turf to make way for their city of the future.
