Okay but typical entry in the P.R.C., Billy The Kid series
5 August 2009 | by FightingWesternerSee all my reviews

There's no real fireworks in Billy The Kid's Gun Justice. It's fast paced enough but runs out of steam near the end.

The standard issue plot consists of Billy and his sidekick Fuzzy trying to unravel the mystery of a friend's missing uncle and bring to justice the criminals behind the disappearance whom they suspect are also behind a related land swindle.

There's a few decent action scenes and Bob Steele is good as the wanted (framed) title outlaw. His tough guy posturing is pretty interesting compared to the somewhat sensitive men you usually see wearing white and wooing the ladies in these types of pictures.
