Editorial Reviews

Experience Disney's poignant coming-of-age tale based on the best-selling novel by S.E. Hinton. For Tex McCormick (Matt Dillon) and older brother Mason, just growing up is the ultimate adventure, especially when Dad is always gone, Mom has passed on, and life is dealing you one challenge after another. Times are so tough, brother Mason has to sell off Tex's favorite horse just to put food on the table. So begins the small-town saga of one teen's straightforward struggle to find friendship, love, and family -- and learning that growing up is about never giving up.

What a great film this was- there was good acting, a good script, unexpected moments of hilarity- and best of all this film stayed close to the book. Many of the characters' lines in the movie are directly from the book. If you are fan of S.E. Hinton and her writings, you won't be disappointed by it. In my mind, "Tex" was even better than "The Outsiders," at least in terms of the movies.
Matt Dillon is superb as Texas McCormick, a quiet, somewhat immature teenager living in Oklahoma, the usual setting for Hinton's books. There are few moments in the film (don't worry, I won't give them away) that were extremely funny. However, not only is the humor entertaining in the movie, but the drama is well done too. Tex faces changes at home, with his friends Johnny and Jamie, and at school, and the result makes for a captivating story line.
The selection for the supporting cast is right on in almost every case- Jim Metzler plays Tex's brother Mason, who has to tend for his younger brother while also looking ahead to college and his own future. Emilio Estevez is Tex's spunky friend Johnny and Meg Tilly is Johnny's independent-minded sister Jamie, the object of Tex's affections.
Even the filming and quality of the movie is not bad, considering that it was made two decades ago. The music is usually fitting in each scene, and the script came off sounding realistic and genuine. All in all, this is a movie well worth checking out. I think the only thing wrong with this movie is the rating it received; there's probably enough swearing in this movie to have earned it a PG-13 rating. Highly recommended.

I read the book so desided to rent the movie. I was so glad I did. If you have not seen the movie, see it. But read the book first. Then you get the real feel for the movie. Matt Dillon is goregous in the movie! All those actors are big stars today, like Matt Dillon, Emilio Estevez. The others did good too. If you have seen The Ousiders and liked it, you will like Tex also. I never regeret watching it. I enjoyed every moment of the movie. It is a little different from the book. But it follows the same guidelines.

I recently purchased this movie after rereading my copy of TEX for probably the millionth time or so. The movie is an excellent version of the story...great for children for the most part. I recommend highly.

Format: DVD
Viewed: 12/12
Rate: 9

12/12: Tex is the last film of the S.E. Hinton trilogy for me to see. I think the first two are disappointing although there are moments of excellence. But finally, Tex is the real winner of the three. It's just so good. While Matt Dillon is adorable and cute in The Outsiders, he is even more so in Tex. In fact, his performance ranks one of the best of his career. Pair him up with Meg Tilly. The results couldn't have been better. It's just a simple picture of growing up and facing challenges of life. It's Matt Dillon's personality and antics that shine through, so it is easy to like Tex a lot. It also helps a lot that Francis Ford Coppola didn't direct the picture, although I know he is very good at what he does, but he tried to be too artistic in Rumble Fish which killed it or went overboard with the all-star cast in The Outsiders which ended up being too corny to watch. In Tex, there is a great confluence of energy among the cast, and the chemistry in the affinity of all characters help Tex to be a wonderful picture it is. All in all, Tex is Matt Dillon's show.
