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.

I liked it just as much as the first
9 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

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
