About the Movie

Academy Award® winner Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfather trilogy) directs this unforgettable story of a young man's struggle to live up to his adored brother's reputation in an impoverished industrial town. Matt Dillon (Wild Things) and Mickey Rourke (Barfly) are Rusty James and The Motorcycle Boy, and lead an all-star cast including Nicolas Cage (Adaptation), Dennis Hopper (Speed) and Diane Lane (Under the Tuscan Sun). This extraordinary adaptation of the best-seller by S.E. Hinton features a Golden Globe®-winning score by Stewart Copeland of The Police, and reminds us that if you're going to lead people, you have to have somewhere to go.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: A number of the images in Rumble Fish are more memorable than the film is as a whole, sometimes for the wrong reasons. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: If Rumble Fish fails as a traditional movie about real people, it is beguiling as an exercise in hallucinatory style. – Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: This is a movie you are likely to hate, unless you can love it for its crazy, feverish charm. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: A bit too over-stylized to allow for any great involvement, the most interesting part of this is spotting the young actors before they became stars -- most notably nephew-of-the-director Nicolas Cage. – Empire Magazine, Jun 24, 2010

This movie is top notch! It is an artsy film with great imagery and sound. Wathching it is almost like watching a dream. It is loaded with style and depth and the acting is ace! Dylan and Rourke's characters are too cool for words. They rarely make em' like this anymore. The Motorcycle Boy Reigns!
