Life in Fairfield, Montana was pretty slow. Until eight young outlaws named The Young Guns showed up. They make their own fun and they don't follow any rules, which usually means explosions, disaster and mayhem. Just the way they like it.

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

Emilio Estevez originally approached Jon Bon Jovi to ask him for permission to include the song "Wanted Dead Or Alive" on the soundtrack. Bon Jovi didn't feel the songs lyrics were appropriate; however, he was inspired by the project and resolved to write a new song for the film that would be more in keeping with the period and setting. He quickly wrote the song "Blaze of Glory", and performed it on acoustic guitar in the New Mexico desert for Estevez and John Fusco. See more »
Shortly before Tom O'Folliard gets shot, Billy states "we'll have a clear view of the Nachita River. We'll sell the horses off, and then we'll take a skiff downriver into Mexico." There are no rivers in New Mexico, besides the Rio Grande and Pecos [Pecos flows through several hundred miles of Texas first], that flow towards Mexico, and, in fact, there is no Nachita River.

No doubt anyone would question Christian Slater coming into the gang, but he works so well as a bad ass. Gee, I wonder why? :) He and Emilio play as the new rebels of the town, while Billy's old gang is moving on with their lives, but are soon arrested for walking with him, he wants the old gang back together to once again reck havec on the scene. The chemistry worked well again as the first one did, with some promising new cast like Christina Slater, Jon Bon Jovi, and an unknown Viggo Mortenson. I think if you enjoyed the first Young Guns, you are more than bound for another off your seat action western! Yee haw! OK, sorry, I can be a little over-dramatic at times. :-P
