Pat and Billy again
Billy The Kid is once again our protagonist in another retelling of the tale. Only
this time the story of a brother and sister orphaned on the New Mexico frontier
have their situation cross with last days of Billy The Kid.
Ethan Hawke is Pat Garrett and Dane DeHaan is Billy who seems to have drawn a
lot from what Emilio Estevez did in the Young Guns movies.
Brother and sister Jake Schur and Leila George are on the run after Schur shoots his abusive father who had just killed his mother. They are running from Chris Pratt who is his uncle who wants vengeance on his relations.
It's their fate for the two kids to find shelter in a place Billy The Kid uses as a
hideout and he comes there with a posse close behind.
Afterward Pratt catches up with the kids and takes George prisoner. It's then
up to young Schur to decide who can help, Pat Garrett or William Bonney,
This is a decent well done western. Hawke makes a properly heroic Garrett, but
the recklessness of Billy draws Schur in. Actor Vincent D'Onofrio late of Law
And Order Criminal Intent directs this with a brisk style and he has a small part
as another sheriff.
I'm sure The Kid will not be the last the big screen sees of Pat and Billy.
