Nostalgic movie of a time gone bye. If you grew up in the fifties or sixties you will enjoy this movie. It's very funny and the sound track is excellent. " I said, leave the kid alone."

5.0 out of 5 stars Film culte March 21 2012
Format:DVD
Un excellent film comme il ne sent fait plus aujourd'hui un film culte tout est excellent dans se film que de nostalgie , film qui a l'époque n'avais pas eu un très grand succès se qui est très surprenant les gens on réaliser plus tard lors surtout de sa sortie en vhs que se fût un excellent film et se qui le plus surprenant la plus part des acteurs non pas eu de grande carrières après se film a part 2 ou 3 qui on fait carrières mais aujourd'hui il sont a peu près tous tomber dans l'oublie , un film qu'on se lasse pas de regarder et quand a l'époque j'ai appris la mort de Terror ca ma fait tout drôle se fût comme la fin d'une très belle époque . Ils devrait sérieusement penser a produire se genre de film a nouveau c'était vraiment la belle époque

By dice.
Format:DVD
i saw the wanderers at an old theatre in my hometown in 1979, 5 years after reading richard price's book version and i thought it was one of the best movies ide seen since'the lords of flatbush' 5 years earlier.
though not following the book version to closely,it still brought the book to vibrant life with all its stunning characters and violent yet heart felt situations.
'the wanderers' leader ritchie gennaro,best buddy joey capra,fellow wanderer buddy borsalino & hulking new wanderer perry lagaudia,played with crotch tugging zest by ken wahl,john friedrich,jim youngs and tony ganios respectively are excellent.
while there girlfriends,despie galasso & nina becker,played seductively by toni kalem and karen allen,are completely beautiful,while the tiny pee-wee,played with swaggering street smarts by linda manz,as the fordham baldies resident deb,is fantastic.
the gangs,'the wanderers','the fordham baldies','the wongs','the del bombers','the ducky boys',look great in their various gang regalia,from the wanderers gold satin jackets,to the fordham baldies obvious baldness,to the ducky boys sawed off runt look of grey and dirty clothes,they loook authentic as well as luridly dreamlike.
erland van lidthe dejaude,as terror the oversized leader of the fordham baldies is a standout and let us not forget alan rosenberg as the sicophant like turkey zukinni who ditched the wanderers for the fordham baldies ans screwed over his friends,is also amazing.
ken wahl shows a 50's teen idol appeal,while tony ganios does a fair stallonne rip-off as the ape with a heart of gold perry and toni kalem as despie the mob boss daughter puts in a stunning performence.

5.0 out of 5 stars Biggest hidden gem of all time. July 11 2004
Format:DVD
I'm not sure if this film was a hidden gem in it's time but it sure as hell is now. Entertainment wise this is one of the best films I've ever seen. I was entertained throughout the whole film with not a moment of boredom. It was really refreshing to see a film like this after spending years of watching Noir and Neo-realist films. The thing that amazed me the most was this films ability to wrap a group of different genre's into one and blend them so graciously. I think the main death of this film was it's showing in PAN AND SCAN over the years. I think it was one of those rare cases of a brilliantly shot film that can only be appreciated in it's true theatrical format. PAN AND SCAN really took away from this film.
This film really deserves a hell of a lot more attention and respect.

4.0 out of 5 stars a era we all wanted to live April 6 2004
Format:DVD
I seen this movie at the theatre when it was released,
because it starred a guy i went to high school with
ken wahl.
this historical aspect on what gang life may have been like
in 1963, sorta a serious west side storey.
i also boight the soundtrack album and now have it
on cd as well.

good movie for a saturday afternoon

4.0 out of 5 stars A VERY ENJOYABLE FILM. Feb. 22 2004
Format:DVD
"The Wanderers" is the kind of movie that you don't expect a lot from it before you watch it, but after the movie is over, you feel that seeing this film was the right choice, because it's incredibly amusing. In fact, "The Wanderers" is one of the few films that can make that the audience cares and feels interested for the life of the teenagers portrayed in the movie, "The Warriors", "West Side Story" and "American Graffiti" are some films that have that quality too.
All the characters in "The Wanderers" are very human and believable, some performances are slightly better than others, but overall all the cast is uniformly well in their roles. Definitely "The Wanderers" is a very recommendable movie, the characters, the situations and the script (based in a Richard Price's book) are very good. This is an enjoyable movie from beginning to end.

5.0 out of 5 stars THOSE GUYS LOOK LIKE A BUNCH OF PRICKS WITH EARS Dec 31 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
this has got to be one of the greatest gang movies ever made along with The Warriors. the best part of the movie is the big fight at the end in the football field. Joey's dad was kickin some major A** ! I like how all the gangs got together in the end to help each other out. Goes to show that in the end besides our differences, were all just a bunch of squirrels trying to get a nut. the soundtrack for this movie is off the hook too !
