One of the best!

I came across this movie by accident. It showed up on Cinemax one day and I was hooked just by the first two minutes. This ranks up there as one of my favorite movies of all time. From the opening scenes of the Bronx in 1963 while The Four Seasons "Walk like a Man" is playing to the end when we hear Dion's "The Wanderers" this is truly a special movie. All the actors in this movie are wonderful too. How could you not love Ritchie (Ken Whal)? He is so handsome. I also loved Perry "Leave the kid alone". You have all the gangs like The Baldies, The Wongs, The Ducky Boys etc... and I crack up over Terror & Pee Wee (what a couple). If you like "The Bronx Tale", "The Outsiders", or "Grease", then you will love this even more. Don't pass this one up. It's one of the best!

Captures the Bronx of the '60s perfectly

1/19/18. It was nice to finally watch this movie in DVD that came along with a couple of short docs made in 2017 that added background material. It is a true cult classic. Similar to other teen movies depicting the teenage angst, this one was great for capturing the Bronx of the '60s. The footage of the Bronx's Fordham Road, and Alexander's brought back great memories of a time when it was great to live in that borough! Good casting made this movie worth catching. Wahl and Allen were phenomenal! And, so was the Bronx!

OK with usual flaws.

Liked the film to a certain point, but really wish Hollywood would change the generic narrative. Italian & Black gangs are basically decent guys, Chinese gangs are fearsome for using Kung FU. Whilst all White gangs are vicious ignorant brutes, get real. All gangs are Clanish, which is worse than racist, our Scottish gangs have been fighting each other for centuries. If you ignore the obvious stereotyping of White gangs you can enjoy this film if only for the soundtrack itself.
