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

When Billy (Emilio Estevez) says "Quien es" ("Who is it" in Spanish) during the introduction of Tom O'Folliard (Balthazar Getty), it's a possible homage to the real Billy the Kid, who reportedly said those same words before he was shot by Pat Garrett. See more »
When the gang is surrounded by Garrett's men, Billy cocked same gun two times. First time when he pointed it toward Dave, and second time just a second before Doc ran outside. See more »
...and there be hanged by the neck till he be dead, dead, dead. Now, do you have anything to say, young man?
William H. Bonney:
Yes I do, your Honor. You can go to hell, hell, hell.

So much better than its rating says
This film is far superior to the first part and I can't get enough of it. The actors are likeable and work very well as an ensemble, the action and story are very immersive and the score (by Alan Silvestri) is simply awesome. (The music on Young Guns is totally different, very inferior, and does not help to accentuate emotions at all.) On this note: anyone who says that Jon Bon Jovi did the music for this film is very mistaken. He wrote a couple of songs that appear on the end credits (and an album that was *inspired by* the movie) but Silvestri is the one who created one of the best movie scores I've heard, which is nearly as good as his Back to the Future music. (Shame it isn't available to buy anywhere.)
Now back to the film. It's both entertaining and moving, and also very funny and I highly recommend it. Like a previous commenter said, there's no need to see the first film as this one stands on its own very well and totally surpasses its predecessor. 8/10.
