From the filmmaking, to the casting, and even the soundtrack, this feels like an authentic 80's film rather than a true western. 'Young Guns' is more of a showcase for the then young stars to strut their stuff and provide ample action. Though, that's not necessarily bad. It's still plenty enjoyable for those reasons. I just wish it had a little more to offer.

Yet another interchangeable and lame brat pack movie in which they swap high school for the old west. Cliched and trite, it's a bit like watching an extended 80s music video. Dumb.

Yet another corny byproduct of the 80's that is actually a ton of fun to watch. Yes, the use of modern music in a Western is weird. Yes, some of the lines and acting are laughably bad. But, in trying to make a buddy action comedy that just so happens to be set in the Old West, the filmmakers mostly succeed.

One of the staple viewings of AMC channel's programming, this violent "Brat Pack" western is about Billy the Kid's gang of social outcasts turned outlaws as they reap vengeance on the Old West.
The attention to detail with the costumes and set design is impressive. Supposedly, it follows the historical account closely of WHAT happened but the question of WHY it happened remains dubious. I sincerely doubt the protagonists were as noble as portrayed here but hey it's simply aiming to be a 'shoot-em-up' adventure with Emilio Estevez, Charlie Sheen, Lou Diamond Philips, and Kiefer Sutherland playing pistol-packing cowboys with the maturity of fratboys.
It mostly does a good job at that but the pacing and editing are both terrible. Characters come and go;there are too many of them as it i...
