Critic Reviews of "Deuces Wild"
Chicago TribuneJuly 24, 2014
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.
AV ClubJune 03, 2013
A repellent orgy of gratuitous violence and hackneyed melodrama, Deuces Wild marks a grim nadir for everyone involved.
New York Daily NewsJune 03, 2013
It not only promotes every stereotype and invokes every cliché 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.
NewsdayJune 03, 2013
Skip it. Just fill in the blanks and you too can brew the same bland, goopy mixture.
Village VoiceJune 03, 2013
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.
VarietyOctober 18, 2008
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.
Cinema CrazedAugust 23, 2014
Scott Kalvert's attempt at a gangster picture is the worst film of 2002.
Christian Science MonitorJuly 24, 2014
It's full of sound and fury, and the ensemble tries hard, but mob boss Fitzy has it right: They're just kids who need to grow up.
People MagazineJuly 24, 2014
This clichéd tale of combative Brooklyn street gangs in the late 1950s gets it so wrong in so many ways, it's almost cruel to count them.
Metro Times (Detroit, MI)June 03, 2013
Deuces Wild's not worth anteing up the ticket price.
Low IQ CanadianJuly 05, 2004
What died in here, and who can we call to take its carcass away?
FilmStew.comFebruary 01, 2004
If it was the intention of Kalvert, Gambale and Kimatian to infiltrate their script with every stereotypical hoodlum cliché from every movie covering Brooklyn bad boys, they were on the money. Too bad their movie isn't.
