Director-writer Lawrence D. Foldes in person! Never on DVD! Sometimes, you've got to take the law into your own hands. And sometimes, you've got to take some guns, ammo, a poodle wearing a cowboy hat, and go after the assholes who raped your sister. This is the way that life works in YOUNG WARRIORS -- this is the way that life should work all of the time. Director Foldes (DON'T GO NEAR THE PARK, LOVELY BUT DEADLY) starts with a classic T&A comedy, drowns it in darkness and pandemonium, and turns it into a warning about violence and society. This movie is an all-time #1 best action-trash masterpiece. Each minute gets better and better. And better. And at some point, a frat boy shows up in army fatigues and a crop top. Plus Ernest Borgnine. (Joseph A. Ziemba)
