Deuces Wild's not worth anteing up the ticket price.

It does nothing new with the old story, except to show fisticuffs in this sort of stop-go slow motion that makes the gang rumbles look like they're being streamed over a 28K modem.

I can't remember the last time I saw an audience laugh so much during a movie, but there's only one's supposed to be a drama.

You'll have a ball with Deuces Wild. Not because it's a well-made and intelligent movie, but because it plays like the world's most straight-faced spoof.

Contrived, awkward and filled with unintended laughs, the film shows signs that someone other than the director got into the editing room and tried to improve things by making the movie go faster.

So clichéd that, at one point, they literally upset an apple cart.

I accuse films of being generic and unoriginal on a regular basis, but rarely have I seen a movie so determined to check off every cliché on the list as Deuces Wild.

Astonishing isn't the word -- neither is incompetent, incoherent or just plain crap. Indeed, none of these words really gets at the very special type of badness that is Deuces Wild.

Cliches are as thick as the cigarette smoke.

Flat and uninspired, it merely begins at point A, travels through a series of gang-film cliches, and ends at point B.

The script from first-timers Paul Kimatian and Christopher Gambale requires Dillon to say corny things like: 'Bricks don't fall outta the sky in this neighborhood unless I'm throwin' 'em.' Tony Soprano, he ain't.

No telegraphing is too obvious or simplistic for this movie.

Scott Kalvert's attempt at a gangster picture is the worst film of 2002.

Let's count cards. Deuces Wild is written and directed by two guys who haven't worked in seven years. Filming wrapped two years ago. The release date has been pushed back at least three times. What does all that add up to? One bad movie.

Not a stereotype is omitted nor a cliché left unsaid.

A stale drama about two rival white gangs who live across the street from each other.

Despite its best intentions, Deuces Wild is an empty hand.

Tentando desesperadamente se transformar em uma espécie de O Selvagem da Motocicleta do novo milênio (com toques de Amor, Sublime Amor), o filme é esquemático demais, tornando-se artificial e nada envolvente.

It's an encyclopedia of cliches, with each stale plot twist easily predicted and relentlessly foreshadowed.
