5.0 out of 5 stars When i stepped out into the bright sunlight, 9 Oct. 2011
This review is from: The Outsiders (2 Disc Special Edition) [DVD] (DVD)
The Outsiders is one of those rare films that changes forever the way you think.

The movie is based on my favourite book of all time by S E Hinton and if you havent read it you can buy it here The Outsiders (Puffin Modern Classics)

The film is based in the 1950's where there are 2 types of kids, you have the rich kids who are called the soc and you have the poor kids from the wrong side of town called the greasers.

Now the greasers and the soc never mix, its a bad idea but they are always having rumbles which are basically street fights.

Synopsis:

Ponyboy (c thomas howell) is the main character and the narrator od the story, he lives with his 2 brothers sodapop (Rob lowe) and Darry (patrick swayze). They kind of have an open house so their friends are always coming and going.
Steve (tom cruise), two bit emilio estevez), dallas (matt dillon) and johnny (ralph macchio).

Ponyboy and Johnny go to a movie and make friends with one of the soc girls, a young redhead called cherry (diane lane). Later that night whilst Ponyboy and Johnny are in the park a car full of soc kids come along and start a fight for talkign to cherry, one of the soc is about to kill ponyboy by drowning him and so johnny steps in and stabs the soc and in a panic fearing they will be sent to prison they decide to run away.

I wont tell you the rest of it as i would like for you to watch it yourself.

I first saw this film when it was released in the 80's and it has been one of my favourites ever since.

This 2 disc collectors edition contains 22 minutes of extra footage that i think really adds to the film, and it was nice to see it as it was originally intended to be shot.

There are some great added extras, commentary's by the cast and an audio commentary by coppola himself.

Im not fussed on the new score though but we cant have it all. Thanks god Stevie Wonder's Stay Gold is still in there.

It is a powerful movie, about friendship, loyalty and family that should not be missed.

I will never ever forget that the opening lines and the closing lines in this movie are the same as the book, "when i stepped out into the bright sunlight, from the darkness of the movie house, there were only two things on my mind, Paul Newman and a ride home"..

Francis Ford Coppola Directed this film and it is truly a masterpiece !!
