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.

I like many other reviewers was a huge fan of both the book and the original movie. This DVD is great, it has many extra features which are extremely informative. The footage that has been added to the movie is a real improvement and more in keeping with the book, it also puts the Curtis family firmly at the centre of the story and helps to better explain the dynamics between all of the characters. In the original movie, you couldn't help but wonder whether or not Rob Lowe had been edited out due to weak acting or perhaps his part did not add to the synergy of the movie - this version proves that this was not the case and he is invaluable to the realtionship between the three brothers. The movie is definitely truer to the book than the orginal and it is a far better movie.
Now we come to the negative part which has been reflected by many others on Amazon and I have to admit I was very dubious whether or not it really warranted all of the negative comments from people who have a tendancy to whinge, but, the music is actually lousy and distracted from the script and flow of the movie. Not all of the music was lousy though, some of it earlier in the film did add to the atmoshphere, setting and time i.e. set the scene. From 'the rumble' onwards though, the music was far too loud and did nothing but interfere and distract from what should have been a prelude to the most emotional scenes and ending. The only music required from the church setting onwards could have been Gloria and the closing music by Stevie Wonder, unfortunately it is one long carcophony of annoyance. Was Coppola trying to emulate Tarantino's use of music?
I can't mark this movie as low as others simply because of the musical intrusion, lets just say that a 5 star movie has lost a star because of it. Is it just me?

Loved this film as a kid and couldn't wait to get my hands on the special edition.
The added scenes are great and make the film even better, but what the hell was the director thinking behind adding stupid music to every good scene in the film. The Original had a fantastic score, and good tense build up music before the rumble. I felt like chucking the dvd out the window. A bittersweet one this, great new scenes making a good film even better..........but the music is going to haunt me until the day i die....shocking.

Had studied this film at school and saw the original. wanting to relive my youth a bit i bought this. It has the film but what spoils it is the god awful soundtrack they have put over it! couldn't hear parts of the film because of it and it spoilt the experience. Would not recommend if you are a fan of the original film but ok for what it is.

I hate this version of the film the new scenes are ok

but the new score makes this the worst new version of a film i have ever seen

What was he thinking

The rumble was one of my top 10 film screens ever with that dramatic music made it so tense it could have been a scene from a war film

now it has music in the background that would be more at home in a episode of the pink panther I had to turn it of before I put my foot through the tv this was one of the first films I loved and now i hate it

don't get me wrong the music is ok if you like that kind of thing but not here

if you love the first verson don't buy this its like some one has chucked a tin of paint over the mona lisa
