Kilmer did good as Billy, but they made him too cold blooded. I admit, Billy wasn't a romeo or a Robin Hood, but Billy was not cruel! Every man he killed had it coming to them. In the movie they made Billy get mad fast and in the end he drank alot, where as in reality he didn't drink and he wasn't easily angered(or there'd have been alot more people killed by him).

As a Val Kilmer fan, this was not one of his better films, sort of hokey.Published 19 months ago by R.Gibbs
Great film with a very young Val Kilmer. It's different than any of the other portrayals. If you're a fan of Val's I really recommend it. To bad it's never come out on DVDPublished on December 30, 2011 by Denise J. Murray
