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

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.

William H. Bonney:

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.
