Dane Dehaan was 31 years old during filming ( 32, upon release ) while the real Billy the Kid was shot and killed at 21 years of age. See more »
When Billy the Kid teaches Rio how to shoot, Rio shoots twice at four bottles, hitting two of the bottles with two bottles left standing. However, when Rio turns around and walks away, all bottles are broken and there are none left standing. See more »

Very slow paced Western that seemed to miss many opportunities for dramatic effect. Thus it came across to me as rather a slog until its engrossing finale.
The cast is first-rate with Hawke and DeHaan leading the way. But as other reviewers have mentioned the virtually unrecognizable Chris Pratt, in certainly a different kind of role for him, was excellent. If you're expecting to see a lot of Vincent D'Onofrio he has a very minor role but he did direct the movie.
All in all, I felt there was a better film that could have emerged here than the one that was presented to the viewer.
