In her review for The New Yorker, film critic Pauline Kael quipped that the young actor Matt Dillon who stars in "Tex" possessed an extraordinarily natural grasp of acting, and that he had never played a rascally, down-home country kid before. Actually, the character of Tex McCormick, Oklahoma high school student struggling to stay out of trouble after he and his brother are abandoned by their father, is like an expanded version of Dillon's character from 1980's "Little Darlings". In other words, there are no surprises from this up-and-coming star, no revelations, and not a trace of personal substance on display. Dillon falls for the pretty daughter of self-righteous Ben Johnson, who seemingly always plays self-righteous (no surprises from him, either). Johnson's way of acting is to pontificate clearly, as if he were making a speech in the town hall. This Disney drama, taken from S.E. Hinton's novel, is rather slow and fuzzy--and after an hour, the audience is still waiting for the plot to get started. The rural locations are capably captured, but the drama inherent in the story of these two brothers lays flat. *1/2 from ****
