Billy "The Kid" and his gang are wanted by the law, and when "Doc" Scurlock and Chavez are captured, Billy has to save them. They escape and set south for Mexico. "Let's hire a thief to catch one", John S. Chisum said, so he paid Pat Garrett, one of Billy's former partners, $1000 for the killing of William H. Bonney aka Billy "The Kid". Written by Lars J. Aas <larsa@colargol.edb.tih.no>

Trivia

Lou Diamond Phillips was dragged by a spooked horse when filming a new scene. He broke his arm and a kneecap. The horse was spooked when Emilio Estevez fired a gun and threw Lou off. The horse then ran, dragging Lou by the noose around Lou's neck and tied to the saddle horn. The scene was never re filmed. Lou talks about this incident on Celebrity Close Calls (2010). See more »

Goofs

In the whore house scene where the towns people mistakenly shoot the sheriff, Billy explains in voice-over that he was blamed for that killing though he never even fired a shot. This is an error as Billy clearly fires the first shot as he pushes the sheriff out of the front door inciting the towns people to open fire on who they think is Chavez the Indian. See more »

A sequel worth seeing
24 August 2003 | by (Rocklin, CA) – See all my reviews

No matter what people say, I think this sequel is very well written and scored. It may not be the best movie ever created, but some of the events that occurred in the sequel are fact based. i.e. the Bob Ollinger shotgun incident, Billy actually busted out the window and yelled a "Hello Bob!" before he emptied both barrels into Ollinger's head and chest.

There are the Hollywood add-in's as in most movie production, but i thought it was worthy of praise. There will be people who say that sequels shouldn't be made, but everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I believe that as long as the sequel provides ample entertainment and you don't have 50 sequels on the same subject that sequels are fine.

NOTE: For the last commenter, they didn't "kill" Billy in the first Young Guns, they stated that he was caught in the Old Fort Sumter by Sheriff Pat Garrett and killed, but we never actually see him die and according to the sequel and different accounts of what occurred over 100 years ago, we may never know exactly who is buried in William Bonney's grave except for the individual that is entombed there.
