Everyone needs a little pulpy entertainment. Inspired by Walter Hill’s cult classic The Warriors, writer/director Richard Jobson updates the story of rival gang war for the age of mixed martial arts and fight clubs. And yes, that is one of the hobbits (Dominic Monaghan) kicking ass as the lead member of the Purifiers, while the always excellent Kevin McKidd (Tommy from Trainspotting and Dr. Owen from Grey's Anatomy) twists Moses into a compelling villain/harbinger of 21st century demagogues. The dirty little secret of every B-movie is that there’s always some incisive social commentary lurking beneath the surface. While no one’s claiming that Jobson could predict the future – only the writers of The Simpsons have that superpower – his offers a critique of political tribalism and corruption that likely resonates more today than it did at the time of the film’s release. For bonus content, music nerds will recognize Jobson from his time as the lead singer Scottish punk band Skids. So take that, anyone who says you can’t play guitar and make movies at the same time.
