      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      The cracks continue to show in Coppola's directorial style, but The Outsiders remains a blustery, weird, and fun adaptation of the classic novel.

      Daniel We liked it because it stirred our emotions. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/22/21 Full Review Ava S book first movie second-I had to wait 4 weeks to watch the movie only part I didn't like was that they left out pony getting sick after dal dies and life after dal died edit: you know maybe they did the tv cut out way too many scenes and now I have to wait for the movie to release somewhere I can watch it-there's so many parts it cuts out and I'm mad about it but whatever Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/19/24 Full Review Josh A Such a great movie. A true classic. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/10/24 Full Review Leaburn O A solid coming of age thing with a grittier edge than usual. A young cast with many who were going to go on to become A listers. Rented it on Amazon Prime. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/24/24 Full Review Dexter M This is a awesome movie and the book is amazing as well, although I did want to die during the end of the movie from sadness💀 one of my favorite movies ever. 🐛 Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/03/24 Full Review Ash W This is a really good adaptation of the book, and the actors really fleshed out the characters like I had imagined when reading the book! Though it doesn't really do anything different with the story, the original one is told with such precision that it doesn't matter. My only complaint is that the ‘60's music blaring during action and emotional scenes really made the scene's impact much softer.

      Kevin Maher Times (UK) It's beautifully shot, written and paced, but the cast, really, is the thing. Rated: 4/5 Oct 15, 2021 Full Review Danny Leigh Financial Times The movie is sincerely anguished, sensitive to class. It can also wobble alarmingly. Rated: 3/5 Oct 14, 2021 Full Review Peter Bradshaw Guardian It is a movie with the heartfelt old-fashioned urgency of a Hollywood film from much further back, with the Brat Pack in this film the equivalent of the Dead End Kids who made Angels With Dirty Faces in the 1930s. Rated: 5/5 Oct 14, 2021 Full Review Danielle Solzman Solzy at the Movies The Outsiders - The Complete Novel becomes a stronger film because of Coppola's decision to restore deleted scenes and give the film a new score and soundtrack. Rated: 4/5 Mar 26, 2023 Full Review Rob Gonsalves Rob's Movie Vault This overwrought, stylized teen melodrama might only hold your interest if you were young enough to be impressed by it in 1983. Rated: C Aug 30, 2022 Full Review Richard James Havis South China Morning Post The movie has aged well, and today impresses on all counts. The story and characterisation are intelligent and play-like, the camerawork is interesting, and the acting is sensitive and involving. Rated: 4.5/5 Aug 23, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews
