What to know

critics consensus

Well-framed, well-cast, and well-intentioned, The Kid still largely fails to set itself apart from the multitude of other westerns covering similar territory. Read critic reviews

Audience Reviews for The Kid

  • Jan 13, 2020
    Written and directed by Vincent D'Onofrio, The Kid is an entertaining western that looks at the gray area between law and morality. After killing his abusive father, Rio and his sister go on the run and end up hiding out with Billy the Kid and his gang, who are being hunted by a group of lawmen lead by Sheriff Garrett. Featuring Ethan Hawke, Dane DeHaan, Chris Pratt, and Adam Baldwin, the cast is pretty good and delivers some engaging performances. Additionally, the film does an impressive job at exploring the ambiguity of good and evil. Still, the plot is a little thin and doesn't go a lot into who Billy the Kid was. Yet despite a few weaknesses, The Kid is a compelling character drama.
