Trivia

Jon Bon Jovi wrote the song Blaze of Glory specifically for the movie and was so inspired that he went on to write an entire album, of the same name, which charted at Number 3 in the U.S. The song was immediately chosen as the movie's theme song and was a Number 1 hit on the Billboard Hot 100. Jon also had a cameo in the movie as the dirty, long-haired prisoner that is shot in the chest and blown backwards as he's climbing out of the pit in the lynch mob/rescue scene. 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 »

Fun!
2 February 2006 | by mistifersSee all my reviews

Whether or not the movie is 100% historically correct should be irrelevant in this film. The story of Billy the Kid and the Lincoln County Regulators is so sketchy to begin with, it would be hard to pick through every piece made about it. Despite what may or may not be factual in this film... the movie really is a good one. It's even better than the first, with a better all-star cast, better writing, and better acting. Emelio Estivez, Kiefer Sutherland, Lou Diamond Phillips, Christian Slater, William Petersen!!! It doesn't get any better than that. They all deliver wonderful performances, and this movie will keep you on the edge of your seat, dodging bullets and laughing right along with "the gang." This movie is very entertaining, and even historical, even though a few points may be slightly off.
