      Jack Moffitt Hollywood Reporter It contains some extraordinarily good acting by the late James Dean, Natalie Wood and Sal Mineo. The direction by Nicholas Ray is outstanding... This is a superficial treatment of a vital problem that has been staged brilliantly. Oct 30, 2018 Full Review Kate Muir Times (UK) With his slicked-up quiff, turned-up jeans and revved-up attitude, Dean instantly achieved icon status. Dec 31, 2017 Full Review Charlotte O'Sullivan London Evening Standard Looks and sounds so good it makes your heart thump. Rated: 4/5 Apr 18, 2014 Full Review Sean Axmaker Stream on Demand ... the ultimate expression of teen alienation in an adult world of its era.... [James] Dean’s wound-up performances and stumbling delivery perfectly captures the flailing desperation of an adolescent searching for a role model. Aug 19, 2023 Full Review Matt Brunson Film Frenzy A superb study of teen angst that still retains its power despite the number of inferior rip-offs that followed in its wake. Rated: 4/4 Apr 27, 2023 Full Review Danielle Solzman Solzy at the Movies Rebel Without a Cause has withstood the test of time and remains one of the best films about teenagers in cinematic history. Rated: 4.5/5 Apr 18, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

Thanks Harkins for showing it Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/05/22 Full Review Anthony L an absolute classic that I adore Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/06/21 Full Review Teddy B Unusual, mysterious, highly abrasive, and emotionally/morally confused, 'Rebel Without a Cause' captures the teenage mindset so perfectly and never lets go of its transcendent themes. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 05/26/24 Full Review KB B This was such a great film with exceptional acting and script. It's definitely worth the watch. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 04/23/24 Full Review Thomas S What's a jerkpot you may ask? Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/24 Full Review James H One of my all time favourite movies this is the movie that made the late James Dean a mega Hollywood it's really sad he wasn't here to witness Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/04/24 Full Review Read all reviews
