This is not a glossey high amp western with a great sound track like the Young guns set. It doesn't even cover much of the Lincoln county war. What it does have though is a somber and gritty realism. What it covers of the kids life is historically pretty accurate.I gave this film four stars because of the fine portrayal of the kid by Val Kilmer. He shows him as a some what awkward troubled adolecent with a wry sense of humor. And when he has the famous portrait done,with that toothy grin, he really could pass for William H. Bonney.I recommend this movie for those who don't require constant action and would enjoy a good historic story.

There was Young Guns 1 and 2, which were certainly much more funner to watch, and then there's Val Kilmer's take on Billy the Kid. This movie is rather lackluster, but all in all, a pretty good western. Val does a good job portraying the Kid, and Duncan Regher plays a convincing slow and lanky Pat Garret. The thing I liked about it was that the history of the Kid and other characters is pretty darn accurate, more so than the Young Guns movies. A good watch but I don't know if you could get into it more than twice.

Finally found this movie on Amazon, quality on VHS not the best, but you cannot find this movie on line any where. One, at least for me, one of the best Billy the Kid films made. Wish it was on DVD. If you like Val Kilmer, check this out, a good portrayal of the Kid.

This movie was pretty good, and I speacially like how they had Billy not drink much in the beginning. Sadly, they did the traditional thing and made Billy have very few partners. In the movie, Billy and Tom kill Brady and one deputy, in actuality, Billy, Jose Chavez Y Chavez, and 4 other regulators killed Brady and 3 deputies. I also hate how they skip the entire Lincoln county war.
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).

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 DVD
