A group of kids in Brooklyn form a gang. From this moment on they do everything together. This makes things easier but at the same time they have to face new problems.

Film Review

Made on a shoestring budget, by Hollywood standards, this slice-of-life, coming-of-age drama depicts the lives of four Brooklyn youths (whose gang name provides the film's title.) King is the handsome lothario who uses one girl (Paris) for quickie sex while pursuing another, more refined one (Blakely) who is new to their school. Stallone is a working class lug who is faced with new responsibilities when his girlfriend Smith informs him that she's pregnant. Winkler is the introspective one who considers life beyond their fish bowl existence. Mace is a bit of a misfit, who strives to be friends with the others. Though there is a progression of sorts, from the start of the film in a classroom to the finale at a wedding, the film doesn't contain a considerable amount of plot. It's more a series of vignettes from the era, coming along episodically, augmented with songs intended to evoke the time and shot with a camera and film which are intended to capture the verisimilitud…

The 1970’s saw a re-emergence of the 1950’s and it started with "American Graffiti" and that spawned more films that I can remember but this effort is both a hit and miss but it is interesting considering the cast. Story is set in Brooklyn in the 1950’s and we see four members of a local gang named the Lords but one of them gets his girlfriend pregnant and is pressured into marrying her. Stanley Rosiello (Sylvester Stallone) is the so-called leader of the Lords and his girlfriend Frannie (Maria Smith) tells him that she is late and the rubber band thing didn’t work. Meanwhile, Chico Tyrell (Perry King) falls for Jane Bradshaw (Susan Blakely) who is the new girl in the neighborhood but he puts a lot of pressure on her to go all the way. The other two members are Butchey Weinstein (Henry Winkler) who may or may not be thinking about going to college and Wimpy Murgalo (Paul Mace) who is the shortest but doesn’t lack in being feisty.*****SPOILER ALERT*****Chico goes out with Ja…

I will try to sum this up into a short synopsis. This is a spoiler, so if you dont care, read on. You have 4 main characters, played by Sylvester Stallone, Henry Winkler, and two other unknowns playing a group of 50’s biker gang. It starts off kinda like a bad Welcome Back Kotter episode with the bikers engaging in typical mischief with the teacher. 15 minutes into the movie, the story seems to fall flat on its face, like an old DeSoto with bad gas- it dies! A couple of boy-gets-girl relationships, a very lame grand theft auto sequence, and a ridiculous "fight scene". Not a fight really, just one of the Lords hugging the opponent on the ground with dust flying and getting chased off by the school jocks. Lastly, a gathering at a wedding reception for one of the Lords-….yawn.To sum it up, there’s some big talk and very little action. The story is very disjointed and tends to lack a sense of reason and likeability to any of its characters…and terrible cinematography …
