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

In the movie Pat Garrett & Billy the Kid (1973), James Coburn (as Pat Garrett) says the line: "Why don't you take your money, shove it up your ass, and set fire to it." In this movie, James Coburn (now in the role of John Chisum) says: "Well you can take those figures, and shove them up your arrogant little ass, and set fire to them." See more »

A sequel worth seeing
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.
