In the near future, a charismatic leader summons the street gangs of New York City in a bid to take it over. When he is killed, The Warriors are falsely blamed and now must fight their way home while every other gang is hunting them down.
"The Driver" is a specialist in a rare business: he drives getaway cars in robberies. His exceptional talent prevented him from being caught yet. After another successful flight from the police, a self-assured detective makes it his primary goal to catch the Driver. He promises remission of punishment to a gang if they help to convict him in a set-up robbery. The Driver seeks help from "The Player" (Isabelle) to mislead the detective.Written by

During the chase sequences, several background cars are seen over and over again; in particular, a blue mid-'70s Chevrolet Chevelle pops up multiple times throughout the two major chases. In the first chase, the Driver passes a white Ford pickup truck at an intersection, then a few seconds later almost sideswipes the same truck at the same intersection. Also, in the first part of the final chase, the same near-collision in mid-intersection with a station wagon is seen twice - once from the viewpoint of the driver of the front car, and later again from the viewpoint of the back car, supposedly in a different place.
