I was looking forward to seeing this movie because of its all-star cast, but I was disappointed by the film's poor writing. The storyline was extremely cliched and predictable, as was the dialogue. It seems like the writer of Deuces Wild took every greaser movie cliche you've ever seen and rolled it into one script.
On top of that, the attempts at New York accents were not very accurate.
Renfro and Balk are the film's one bright spot, their characters seem to have a little more depth than the others, and they have good on-screen chemistry. Renfro is believable and sweet as a well-meaning guy who is torn between loyalty to his brother (who is leader of the neighborhood gang) and asserting his independence by courting the girl he loves (who just so happens to be the sister of the gang's rival)
Balk is charming as a sensitive girl pretending to be a "tough city chick" meanwhile she is watching city life destroy her family and all she wants to do is escape.
It is a shame that this big name cast didn't get a better script and a more original storyline to work with.

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 loved Deuces Wild. The cast was out-standing and it was well-written. It didn't leave out the little and most important things that most movies do. It really captured the street gangs of the 50's. It left me on the edge of my seat at times and other times I wanted to cry. The only thing I would've changed is made some of the bad guys, good guys because you never want a cute guy to be a bad guy. I recommend this movie to anyone and everyone!

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!

This movie has many, many flaws. Fairuza Balk is way too old to be playing a teenager dating (portly) Brad Renfro; the dialogue is totally corny; and the camera work is awful. Other than that, it's not a bad movie. The story is very, very much like many movies you've already seen that were better: The Outsiders, West Side Story, A Bronx Tale, etc., etc. The soundtrack is excellent; the scene with Fairuza and Brad in a steamy pool is hot. Definitely worth watching for any one who likes movies about the 1950s/Italians/gangs/teenagers. My favorite BAD line is when Brad Renfro says it's 115 degrees outside, even though HE is the one wearing a leather jacket!

Deuces Wild is quite an entertaining film. The plot is simple with two rival gangs at each others throats in Brooklyn. Though this film is not what you would call a masterpiece, it is enjoyable and dreamy Stephen Dorff is a pleasure to watch. He is the only reason why I would see this film over and over again. Fairuza fans will find this film enjoyable. Balk plays a significant role and her character is an important component to the film's plot. She does a good job and looks pretty as always with those stunning blue eyes. A surprisingly good film!

***SPOILER ALERT***
In its overwhelmingly artificial depiction of the street gangs that ruled Brooklyn’s mean streets in the 1950s, “Deuces Wild” draws from a phony deck. The most antiquated aspects of “West Side Story” — minus the music and the Puerto Rican-Anglo conflict — are seen here, from the faux street-tough attitude of several attractive but dull Hollywood hunks to the unmistakable backstage look of the entire project. 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.
Meller mood is laid on thickly with a brief 1955 prologue, which shows Deuces gang leader Leon (Stephen Dorff) and his family after his brother Sal is found dead of a heroin OD administered by Marco (Norman Reedus), the nefarious sparkplug of the rival Viper gang. Three years pass, the Dodgers have left Brooklyn for L.A., Marco is about to be released from prison and the Deuces and Vipers are in a truce, but their feud over a few blocks of turf could get bloody at any time.
A lack of specificity over the exact Brooklyn neighborhood (the predominantly Italian flavor suggests Red Hook) is just the opening hint of pic’s generic storytelling approach, with characters tending to be played as stereotypes familiar from other, better movies.Leon is the Good Leader, determined to keep drugs out of the area, while brother Bobby (Brad Renfro) is the Wild Man, constantly itching for a fight with Viper guys like Jimmy Pockets (Balthazar Getty). Jimmy’s sister, Annie (Fairuza Balk), is the Tough Chick for whom Bobby falls hard.
