"Rebel is a treat for Matt Dillon fans. This was made back in his cocky "Outsiders" era, so he's definitely got the swagger going on in this one. His persistence to be with Kathy (the singer) is classic Dillon. The story takes place in 1942 Australia, where wounded American soldiers went to recuperate--and go AWOL if they could escape the MPs. Dillon's character meets a guy who can help him get on a ship and away from the war, and the story is basically Dillon's attempts to get on one of these ships. The longer it takes for that ship to come in, the longer he has to fall in love with Kathy. It's an engaging story, and there's enough tension to keep it going. However, the 80s got all over this thing. The music is way over the top for a 40s era film. The stage performances seem oddly out of sync with the times. However, Debbie Byrne does have a nice voice."
