Billy the Kid (1989)
26 December 2000 | by (US) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie for the first time on TV earlier this year. Though not as great as "Lonesome Dove", "Billy the Kid" was good. I didn't quite get to see the entire film that time, however. Plus, it doesn't seem to be available to rent, anywhere. I thought it was good, but not as much action as some others.
