Violent '80s Western with teen appeal.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
February 21, 2008
OK rehash of Old West villains, this time teaming them up in their early days.

Good idea to cast the brat pack in a Western but this was badly realised and altogether a bit flat.

Christopher Cain directed this western from a script by John Fusco, and on the whole seems much more comfortable with the scroungy and scatological dialogue than he does with the action sequences.
February 4, 2008
Young Guns is simply not a very good movie--western or otherwise. Fusco's script provides little character development and muddies the narrative with some unlikely supporting characters.

Little more than a flawed romp, but energetic and enjoyable, with sterling performances from Sutherland and Estevez.

Far better western than the brat pack deserved
| Original Score: 3/5
August 27, 2004
The film doesn't go far in reviving the Western film genre.

Young Guns is best watched in the playful, none-too-serious spirit in which it was made.

There are side pleasures to be found in going back and reliving the bad parts of the '80s. A rental of Young Guns lets us know that at least we're out of Reaganomics and the movies it spawned.
| Original Score: 1.5/5
April 16, 2003
Fails to either humanize Billy the Kid or justify his lore.

One of the best westerns ever made

August 21, 2001
This is a very brown movie: leather, planks of wood, dirt, dust, horses, and the tenor of the performances.

They behave as if our adoration were their birthright.
