The unbeaten western of the 80's. It carried away the heavyweight belt and won it in the first round. You can now delete all those Billy the Kid movies and finally have fun watching an all American bad-guy do his very best at being bad. I give this film 4 out of 5 stars.

One of the main reasons I believe so many people hate this film is that it turns killers into heroes and ignores history altogether. Billy the Kid was a cold blooded killer and his gang were considered scum. These people raped women, gut shot children (leaving them to die a painful death) and robbed innocent people. The instance of making these types of slimebags into heroes shows a total lack of morals.

This movie tends to get a lot of hate. But there are also a lot of people who really enjoyed this movie as well. It is not a typical western in the sense of The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly or The Searchers. This is a western with a more Hollywood flare added to it. To me, it is more a western for the younger crowd. I doubt that the 60 year old man that loves Louis L'amour is going to be one of the folks that enjoy this movie. I have watched this movie about once or twice a year for the last 5 years or so. I still enjoy watching it. I love watching Emilio Estevez, Keifer Sutherland, and Lou Diamond Phillips in their somewhat younger days...and Dermot Mulroney is nearly unrecognizable in his role.
I am pretty sure that the historic accuracy to the real Billy the Kid is pretty much non-existent...but frankly I rely on movies to teach me about historic events just about as much as I rely on The National Enquirer to keep me up to date with current events. This is not a documentary ...it is a movie.
