Don't see the love for it

I just don't see the great love some people have for this movie. The Outsiders (1983) is a film by Francis Ford Coppola, based off the novel of the same name. The story is set in the 1950s, and it stars a lot of the big time youth stars in Hollywood at that time. The cast includes Matt Dillon, Tom Cruise, Ralph Macchio, Patrick Swayze, and Diane Lane. The film's plot relies a lot on the acting from the cast, it's a lot of heavy dialogue between the characters. And of course there is nothing wrong with a film relying a good bit on the actors and their talent, but I feel like this film relied so much on it that the actual story suffered. The rich and poor, the preppy kids and the greaser kids, the differences in social class plays a big role in the plot. It's ultimately what gives us a movie, it's because of that and the horrible consequences that come about from that, that we even have a book and movie. I will commend the acting from all the cast members, the performances given were very good and that's why the rating is as high as it is. To be completely honest, the acting is really the only part of this film that I actually liked. I feel like the actual plot was weak and the filmmakers didn't do enough to make me care about what happened. Many times throughout the movie, I found myself bored and wondering when it was going to end. I just couldn't get involved in the story, couldn't get myself to care about what happened. I think another mistake they made was the pace and the length. Maybe if it was longer, and if they would have filled that time with more interesting things, then I would giving this film a higher rating. I can't recommend The Outsiders because truthfully it's not that great of a film. Yes, many of the performances given were good, but that's it as far as positives go. I felt like I had overall wasted my time by the end of the film. I guess it's not terrible, but it's certainly not good. 4/10 for The Outsiders.

Great actors vs a great book

The Outsiders had a all star cast of known 80's actors. C. Thomas Howell, Matt Dillon, Ralph Macchio, Rob Lowe, Patrick Swayze, Emilio Estevez and Tom Cruise of course. Charlie Sheen must of been on vacation somewhere to miss out!?! Oh I forgot and Diane Lane was also part of the class. Surprisingly Matt Dillon had the stand out role as the troubled youth. Sadly, Matt Dillon became type cast as the troubled leather jacket youth the rest of the his career. Macchio, Howell and the rest did a decent job considering the material. I never read the Outsiders but the movie must of followed the book closely. The Outsiders gets across more like a book than a movie. Frequently, great books badly transition to the screen. The Outsiders has an interesting story, with a social message of what is good person? The Macchio characters vs the Dillon creates the movie's argument of Plato's what is the good person/life question? The surprise ending pounds the message! Regrettably, The Outsiders gets across more like play then a movie, with the dialog and acting. The camera and set work was like the movie 300 with a feel of a comic book. If the director/scrip write does not tweak the story and character book movies comes across as dry. Omitting characters, changing scenes, condense the story is usually done to avoid a dry story. I would not call The Outsiders a Classic movie, but not a bad movie either. 6 out of 10 stars.

One Of The Best Movies Of The Decade

Continuing my plan to watch every Tom Cruise movie in order, I come to to his second movie of 1983, The Outsiders.

Plot In A Paragraph: The rivalry between two gangs, the poor Greasers and the rich Socs, only heats up when one gang member kills a member of the other.

One of the best moves of the 80's and one of the greatest young casts ever put together in one movie. It's filled with future stars. C Thomas Howell, Matt Dillion, Ralph Machio, Patrick Swayze, Rob Lowe, Tom Cruise, Emilio Estevez and the gorgeous Diane Lane. And every single one of them is superb. You really believe they are the characters. RIP Patrick Swayze, what a talent that guy was.

Rob Lowe got the short end of the stick, when producers demanded Francis Ford Coppola cut the movie from 2 hours to 1 hour 30. Most of Sodapops scene were left on the cutting room floor, until Coppola release The Outsiders: The complete novel 25 years later. It's probably the biggest change from the book.

Stevie Wonders Stay Gold is just beautiful.

This would be the last time for a long time that Crusie would be a supporting actor in a movie.

The Outsiders grossed $35 million at the domestic box office, to end the year the 28th highest grossing movie of 1983.
