Critic Reviews for Deuces Wild
Maybe if the movie had left all the expensive period artifacts, and most of the hackneyed script, on the street corner and let its capable young cast loose, Deuces Wild would have offered the audience a more interesting game.July 24, 2014
A repellent orgy of gratuitous violence and hackneyed melodrama, Deuces Wild marks a grim nadir for everyone involved.
It not only promotes every stereotype and invokes every clich of Brooklyn lore, it combines them all into an insulting composite, fuses that to the chrome-and-fins of the pointless Fifties, and then -- weirdly -- pretends it's Shakespeare.June 3, 2013 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
Skip it. Just fill in the blanks and you too can brew the same bland, goopy mixture.
A flashback to a heroin casualty on a rain-soaked playground is a crucial visual aid, but any punch-drunk victim of Deuces Wild might prefer the needle to the damage done.
This is a movie that can't say no to a melodramatic opportunity, and whatever verisimilitude inspired Paul Kimatian and Christopher Gambale to write a script based on Kimatian's memories of the gangs has been utterly lost along the way.October 18, 2008 | Full Review…
Audience Reviews for Deuces Wild
Jun 08, 2010While this movie is completely ridiculous and corny, it's still fun to see Stephen Dorff being the bizarre person he is. There's actually some really good things about the movie, there's some very decent acting from Brad Renfro and Balthazar Getty, but the majority is just a rip-off of various other gangster movies. There's really nothing that hasn't been seen before and the characters aren't interesting enough to make it memorable. Visually it's pretty bland too.Conner R Super Reviewer
Oct 15, 2009Not bad, too cliche at times and predictable resolution, but still not bad. I guess it helps that i'm a sucker for 50s retro stuff. Fairuza Balk also looks hot in some kind of weird way.Tsubaki S Super Reviewer
Oct 05, 2008An explosive gangland drama, the best film of it's kind since The Outsiders. An electrifying film that explodes with action and a powerful cast of superb talents and gifted new comers. It has style and groove thats all it's ownAl S Super Reviewer
