Take West Side Story, remove the music, add excessive profanity and violence, and you'll get Deuces Wild. It's an overripe melodrama in which rival street gangs--in this case Deuces vs. Vipers in 1958 Brooklyn--inevitably ...  more »

Movie Reviews

A more intense version of West Side Story
A viewer | New Hampshire | 11/27/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Scott Kalvert did an outstanding job directing this movie and making the time period as realistic as possible. The similarity between this and Westside Story is the gang rivalry. In Westside Story, you have The Jets vs. The Sharks and in this movie you have The Deuces vs. The Vipers. I didn't see all of Westside Story though but it seems like its less intense than this movie. This movie has some Rebel Without A Cause as well but I didn't see that movie either. I compare this movie to Rebel Without A Cause because of the gang element and Stephen Dorff is The Jimmy Dean of this movie. Stephen Dorff does a great job as 'Leon', the noble yet violent leader of The Deuces. Brad Renfro also does a great job as Leon's younger brother Bobby. He is easily influenced by his brother's hatred towards The Vipers and his life-style is even more chaotic when he meets 'Annie', who is played by Fairuza Balk. Drea DeMateo was so so as 'Betsy', Norman Reedus does a great job as 'Marco', and Matt Dillion does a great job as 'Fritzy'. Overall, its a powerful and intense movie and a must see for movie fans. You'll be pleasantly surprised!"
Terrible! Cliche' City

"Stephen Dorff has outdone himself again with the bad movies. DW was full of tired cliches'. There wasn't one thing they said or did in this film that hasn't happened a thousand times before. I was terribly disappointed and mad I bought this dumb movie. And I'm a Stephen Dorff fan. Just when I thought it was safe to watch another Dorff flick... Save your time and change. If you have to see this movie wait until it comes on television. This is one of the worst movies of the season. Instead of passing on Blade 2, Stephen Dorff should have thrown his DW script in the trash. If you're into fake thugs, boring sex scenes, bad acting blonds, and ignorant mob bosses, Deuces Wild is for you. But if you want to see this film with class, rent " Grease ", " Rebel Without A Clause ". Any good film that brought leather jacket wearing people to an entertaining level. But skip this junk!"
"Gangs Of New York"

"My father was a gang member in 1956 Queens, New York. He told me stories about Zipguns and bats he used for protection. He also told me how realistic this movie was just by taking a look at the way the gang members wore their belts. The belt buckle was always worn just above the left front pocket! I wish I could have been there to back my father up! Forget about Hollywood's Outsiders & Rumble Fish brat pack, that was fictional bull! Also recommend Blackboard Jungle."

"I would rather be injected with the Ebola virus than watch this monstroscity of a movie one more time. The only redeeming factor is Adrianna from the Sopranos and she doesnt even get naked. This wanna be West Side Story/Outsiders scriptwriter should be taken into an alley and shanked in the liver with a screwdriver. Rack the Glock and keep a bullet handy when watching this flick~"
