Being an 80's movie fanatic, you can imagine the excitement i felt when i found out that "The New Kids" was going to be finally released on DVD.
I had it on VHS but you know what happens with those old video cassettes, they either don't work or the film inside is so wasted and torn that it's impossible to see it clear. (Even with the tracking mode!) In my case..i just lost the film. (actually think my ex girlfriend from high school still has it!)
Anyways just reading the editorial review will pretty much sum up the whole film for you, so i'll save myself from telling you the story all over again..but what i will say is that it's a well acted and directed film with great performances from the cast, especially James Spader, the man we all loved to hate in all those 80's flix except for "Tuff Turf" where he played the "nice" guy with a problem with autority. (Whatever, just search for it on this site, a real gem!)
If your a fan all films of the 80's, especially teen related acion ones, check this out...you won't be disapointed!
The only problem i had with this re-release is the cover, i liked the original artwork from the VHS cover, ah well..what can you do!
