Brooklyn Taylor
: 20
1) Production quality: 8

The production value was pretty good. It captured the gritty N.Y.C. of the late 1970s.

4 out of 5 stars (or 8 out of 10).

2) Story: 8

It was a good story, especially with the tie in to the ancient warriors. The trip from the Bronx to Coney Island is not 100 miles as they insinuated, but it is far when you can’t get a subway train.

4 out of 5 stars (or 8 out of 10).

3) Acting: 4
The acting was subpar, except for Swan.

2 out of 5 stars (or 4 out of 10).

4)) Overall entertainment value: 8

It was very entertaining the whole time.

4 out of 5 stars (or 8 out of 10).

The Warriors
