    While it’s understandable why Francis Ford Coppola chose to place an original score that harkens back to the Golden Age of Hollywood alongside cinematography that invokes that same aura, it’s also dreadful overkill. It wasn’t until I watched Coppola’s re-cut of his film (with a soundtrack of period-place pop oldies) that "The Outsiders" finally became magnetic and moving. By taking the iconic (and very tone-deaf) novel of the same title and turning it into visual Americana, the story touches deeply…

    Beautiful film, full of heart and amazing to look at. All actors perform at the height of their talent. Plus it's fun watch. Incredible how ahead of its time it is. Coppola never disappoints.

    I thought it was brilliant if dated.

    Combines a talented ensemble cast with an engaging story. It is in some ways a scare film. Characters suffer for their bad behavior, and occasionally the treatment seems a bit heavy-handed. Coppola's direction is brilliant, as evidence by his attention to detail. In particular, the soundtrack manages to contribute to the drama without feeling manipulative.

    The collaborative work of the young cast also serves as a testament to the director's skill. Coppola even wrenches a convincing performance out of Patrick…

    For the 'Full book' version. I've never seen the 90 minute studio cut.

    They grew up on the outside of society. They weren't looking for a fight. They were looking to belong

    Without having seen the original shorter version of this film, I feel like I can easily say it is probably better than this updated 'Complete Novel Version', which I happened to see since it is hard as hell to a get a hold of the original cut. I heard the new version was more true to the book, which I couldn't…

    I actually loved this movie. The acting was real good and the actors were fitting and believable and it was aesthetically pleasing (I particularly liked the lighting) and I just really enjoyed this. Added bonus, I got to watch with my best friend and it's her favorite movie.

    One of those books and films you love as a kid and then look back on and realize "wow, this is actually pretty hokey and schmaltzy". But hey, Hinton was only 16 when she wrote it. For my money I'll take Rumblefish over this when it comes to Coppola-Hinton films every day.

    Full of a plethora of 80s teen idols and good looking kids being tough but also oh so sensitive. The score is also a bit stilted. Otherwise though, it is a good film, just not quite a great one.
