Not many sequels surpass their original sibling but this DVD does. Billy's back, so is Pat Garrrett (although he is played by a different actor) and this is the showdown. This movie is the story of an old man claiming to be Billy who is after the pardon he was promised almost a lifetime ago. This movie picks up pretty much a year after Young Guns left off with the surviving regulators being round up and set for a hanging. Meanwhile Billy is being promised a pardon by the governor in return for testimony against his old enemies who killed John Tunstall. Of course there is no pardon and Billy must escape and rescue his pals. Pat Garrett is of course paid a lot of money to turn on Billy, track him down and bring him to justice.

Out of the two Young Guns movies this is the more well known story of the life of Billy the Kid. You don't actually need to have seen the original to enjoy this movie but the original is pretty good too so you might as well.

The trailer for the movie is also included which is pretty interesting to see how it was marketed in the USA. There's also a featurette which is a sort of behind the scenes, interview with the actors type thing. It's pretty interesting. You can also just watch the credits if you want to listen to Jon Bon Jovi's Blaze of Glory and Billy get Your Guns songs.

Like Young Guns this movie has an excellent cast with Keifer Sutherland, Emilio Estevez, Christian Slater and Lou Diamond Phillips being the most famous ones. My only criticism is that they used William Petersen a different actor to play Pat Garrett than Patrick Wayne who played him in Young Guns. Once you get used to this it doesn't matter. This is a sensational DVD you should buy it as well as Young Guns. If you love the movie consider buying Blaze of Glory the solo album inspired by the film by Jon Bon Jovi as it'll take you back memory wise to the film each time you play it.

How many times have we seen a sequel that was better than original? Let's face it: something like that is rare.

Young Guns, the film from 1988 was a succes at the box office, so a sequel came in 1990. Well folks, I'll tell you: Young Guns II entertains and is even better than the original.

The story of Young Guns II basically takes of where Part I stopped.

Cast members Emilio Estevez, Kiefer Sutherland and Lou Diamond Phillips are united once more for some more fun in the wild wild west.

The story may be historically inaccurate, the story is nice and gives a lot of entertainment and surprises.

Emilio Estevez is back as Billy the Kid and gives an even more satisfying performance than in the first one. He gives his crazy, triggerhappy character an extra touch and even shows a more emotional side of the character.

Kiefer Sutherland plays a good role as Doc and even if his role may feel a bit smaller than in the first one, he shows that he's there in every scene where he is necessary.

Lou Diamond Phillips is cooler than ever as his Mexican Indian character, 'Jose' Chavez y Chavez. He steals the show with his serious, relaxed and knifethrowing protrayel of the character. Great job.

As for the rest of the cast: there are a lot of newcomers in the film including Christian Slater, Alan Ruck, Balthazar Getty and William L. Petersen who all do a fine job and keep the film, considering acting, in the safety zone.

The rest of the film: camerawork, locations, sets, costumes and music are all perfectly and professionally done. The locations are stunning, beautiful and show the West in it's full pride.

Now the Music by Alan Silvestri is what powers the film up.

Western films have slowly deterierated in quality since the passing and changing of certain actors souch as John Wayne and Clint Eastwood. It is good to see a western that captures the same hearts as did earlier westerns. We need more movies like this one.

As the 1990 sequel to the modestly successful Brat Pack western, "Young Guns," this entertaining, rip-snorting adventure takes a few pages from obscure history mixing it up with Billy the Kid's romanticized exploits and Jon Bon Jovi's distinctive rock sound into perhaps the best film ever produced about the legendary New Mexican bandit. The film chronicles a heavily fictionalized account of Billy's last stand against the corrupt Lincoln County Ring leading up to a final encounter with former friend-turned lawman Sheriff Pat Garrett in the summer of 1881.

Starring original "Young Guns" Emilio Estevez as the wacky William H. "Billy the Kid" Bonney; Kiefer Sutherland as "Doc" Scurlock; and Lou Diamond Phillips as Chavez y Chavez; the film's ensemble also includes William Petersen as Sheriff Pat Garrett; James Coburn as cattle baron John Chisum; Christian Slater as sleazy bandit "Arkansas Dave" Rudabaugh; Viggo Mortensen as posse member John Poe; and Alan Ruck & Balthazar Getty as Billy's newest recruits. Suffice to say, the combination of sincere, all-round performances and sharply executed cinematography on location in New Mexico superbly compensates for the meandering script's weaknesses (i.e. Doc and Chavez not realizing sooner that Billy has been conning them, and how known historical events from 1879 to 1881 blur together). The film also does not plausibly address how Garrett could have staged Billy's assassination and funeral (with what corpse?) on short notice, but then again, does it really matter? Aided by some great chemistry with Estevez, Petersen's intensely believable performance as the opportunistic Garrett allows viewers to suspend their sense of disbelief in this regard.
