This week on the totalfilm.com DVD Club, we're watching The Wild Bunch.
No surprise, then, that we got to thinking about the best movie gangs ever to flick a switchblade.
Whether it's slick street types, rough riders or smooth criminals, we take a look at the best mobs out there...
The Gang: The Warriors
The Film: The Warriors (1979)
Led By: Cleon (Dorsey Wright), the founder, who sacrifices himself after a pow-wow between New York's crime teams goes badly wrong.
Enemies: The Rogues, the Baseball Furies, the Turnbull ACs, among several others.
Why Are They Cool? Even when they're stranded in enemy territory, with the cops hunting for them and rivals at their backs, this lot make it through with a combination of street smarts, brawling, and tactical use of a molotov cocktail.
And they do all that while pulling off a look that includes red-orange pleather vests boasting their logo on the back.
That takes real guts.
