Jonathan Kaplan's engaging exploitation nightmarish generation gap film is effective and honest.

Script, photography and performances (including Dillon before he decided to become a teenage Stallone) are all top notch, while Kaplan directs with pace, imagination, and a fine ear for dialogue and music.

If you were born around the same time as Matt Dillon, this period piece will amaze you with its attention to detail

It's to Mr. Kaplan's credit that he makes New Granada look just as boring and alienating to us as it does to the unfortunate children who live there.

Kaplan's film is a real treat - fair, cool, disturbing and graced by naturalistic performances from its vibrant young cast.

Kaplan has a fine feel for the crushing blandness of "planned communities"-the anger that possesses his underage heroes proceeds from a physically oppressive emptiness, represented by rows of hollow town houses and vast, blasted fields.
