Storyline

Two brothers, Leon and Bobby are members of the street gang in Brooklyn known as the deuces. Their brother was killed by a drug overdose a few years earlier and the gang is determined to keep drugs off their block. Another more vicous gang known as the vipers is a possible threat to Leon and Bobby's efforts. The deuces are determined to do whatever is necessary to keep drugs off their block even if that means dying. Written by <langstar1@hotmail.com>

Goofs

The end of the movie shows what is clearly a Roman Catholic funeral, presided over by the parish priest. Over the shoulder of one of the main characters can be seen a Masonic square and compasses on a tombstone which would be highly unlikely in a Catholic cemetery. See more »

The Outsiders: The Next Generation.
15 January 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Deuces Wild is a gangland movie that pays homage to other gangland movies, with the most evident being The Outsiders. Matt Dillon even has a supporting role. This is not as good as The Outsiders, but isn't bad either. As I said, it is a homage movie that is a great watch.

Deuces Wild's most parallels are from The Outsiders as I mentioned, but what makes this more unique from The Outsiders is the characters. Stephen Dorff is protagonist, Leon. Leon is the fierce leader of Brooklyn street gang, "The Deuces" who keeps control in the neighbourhood. The late, great Brad Renfro plays his hot-headed little brother, Bobby. The Deuces are rivals with another Brooklyn gang called "The Vipers," and chaos spews when Bobby falls in love with one of the Vipers' sisters, who is played by Fairuza Balk. That makes situations worse when the Vipers' leader, Marco (Norman Reedus) is released from jail. Each character in this is great and would have been a nice addition to The Outsiders. Leon is like Dallas Winston, but Leon is more respectable and there's more visible goodness in him. I can just imagine Bobby being being an Outsider too. Marco would have been a great addition to the Socs, as they were missing the vicious counterpart that would have balanced out the war.

Bits and pieces have been stolen from On The Waterfront, Rumble Fish, Bad Boys and The Outsiders. But the entire cast all do mighty fine. This is Dorff's best role and one of Renfo's best.
