Although I like westerns there aren't too many that you can watch over and over again. Young guns 1 and 2 are exceptions. They are without doubt two of the best westerns ever made. They are traditional as they follow the 'rules of westerns' but they differ also, being more based on character than most other westerns. Emilio Estevez was great as Billy, playing him as the legend suggests, attractively wicked and high spirited. These two are my favourite movies of all time and can never be replaced.
Intoxicating one (by elanor_magda_bonney)
Young Guns is definitely an all-time favorite of mine. I don't see a movie analyzing the historical accuracy, nor do I expect more than I get, something no one should do except they wish to find spots of bother. To me, Young Guns is a film with a good plot, fine actors, interesting characters and nice messages such as the importance of friendship. Furthermore, it takes people to a universe, be it "real" or not, which is filled with wonders and excitements, opening a little window to what we call imagination. Luckily, no boundaries are set to it and we can dream away just like a <more>
filmmaker can portray his vision. It's lucky we don't need to take movie critics too seriously, not if a film touches our hearts and we care about it, because it's become part of our memories, therefore our lives. I don't need anyone telling me what to like and what not to like. Young Guns is thrilling, exciting and nicely done in all aspects. That is all one needs to know. Every western fan should have seen it. Movie critics or even buffs who're not into westerns should busy themselves with other things and take it easy. Therefore, Young Guns gets a grade 10 from me.
This, in my opinion, is the best movie of all. If I filled out the question Favorite Movie in my senior survey for the high school annual, this movie would be it. Emilio Estevez is great at the part of Billy the Kid and there's a lot of action and gunfights in it. Estevez also brings in some humor in the movie. Brian Keith did good in his role as the old man who guns down Charlie Sheen and he probably had the funniest part in the movie. Just imagine being so calm in shooting at 6 guys who are armed as well. I felt such excitement at the end when Estevez jumped out of the chest where he <more>
was hiding in and shooting like a maniac at the corrupt lawmen. All six characters, with the exception of lean, calm Charlie Sheen, live up to the tagline on the cover of the movie; Six reasons why the West was wild. Casey Seizmasko plays a good role as one of the childish of the Regulators, but then makes an awesome change at the end. I really don't like westerns, but I like historic movies, and this one is the best of them all, and the best overall. I recommend this movie to anyone.
One of the Most Underrated Westerns Ever (by Challenger2013)
Here is one of the most underrated Western films of all time. What we have here is the untold story of "The Regulators," led by the infamous Billy the Kid Emilio Estevez . The film follows the group of six young men none of them over 21 years old, but they all look like they're 25 or 30. The story is quite simple; their guardian is murdered, and they are deputized to find the suspects and bring them in. When Billy goes on a killing spree of the murderers, the boys are on the run from the law themselves.The great effect of this film is how it mixes exciting Western action with <more>
comedy and boyish charm. Each actor plays their part as it is meant to be played, nothing special but still exceptional. Each character also has their defining traits that make them individually likable. One of the most lovable is Doc Kiefer Sutherland who is great with the steel, but also claims to be a poet, even though all of his poems are slightly tweaked versions of classic poems by acclaimed authors. Lastly, we are given a wonderful, almost-evil villain played wonderfully by the Western legend, Jack Palance.This film, being made just before the 1990s, contains new comedic elements for the genre, but is also quite relatable to the classic, beloved Westerns of earlier decades. It doesn't look like other 1980s films aesthetically; it looks more like a technicolor 1950s Western, and it is very refreshing. The film is not necessarily under-watched by Western fans, but does not receive the acclaim it deserves. It's easily one of the most fun Westerns of the last three or four decades.
One of the best westerns. Although the real story of Billy the Kid is a bit stretched, the movie still holds up as one of the best westerns of all time. Estevez is terrific as the trigger-happy killer Billy, and the supporting cast is great.
Top Five All Time Westerns (by roythetoy1)
It just doesn't get much better than this. Extremely well acted by all main characters. I highly recommend this movie. It's the kind of movie you can watch time and time again and never tire of it. Emilio Estevez is one of my favorite actors since seeing him in Young Guns. He comes from a family of top notch movie star stock. His Father, Charlie Sheen and brother Charlie Sheen. Generally speaking I'm not much of a western movie fan, however Young Guns, Tombstone, Forgiven,and all Clint Eastwood westerns. Emilio Estevez captures the Billy the Kid character and makes it his own. <more>
After watching his version, I can't imagine any other Billy the Kid version.
Never intended to be a rival to Leone, Young Guns is a fun ride with likable performances. (by axlrhodes)
Its easy to pass off Young Guns as an eager to please piece of throwaway rock video style entertainment aimed at the younger demographic but that would be unfair.The thing is,it knows what it wants to be and it does it very well.The young cast all perform with great fun and energy thus enriching the film immeasurably.They are well supported by Jack Palance and Terrence Stamp who bring weight to proceedings, particularly Palance who seems to revel in his hammy role.Emilio Estevez's interpretation of Billy The Kid is a great watch too,his realisation of the character may be a million miles <more>
from the reality but when there's this much fun being had on screen,who cares!? The music in the film is a little jarring in places,electric guitars screaming Van Halen style over a western horse chase feel very much out of place but its never distracting enough to take you out of the fun. So in summary Young Guns is a western that wants to entertain you and I say it succeeds well.It was never intended to be a Sergio Leone classic western,just a fun ride with characters you can root for.On that level,it is a triumph.
A pack of young stars take on the western legend known as Billy the Kid. (by Mickey-2)
The year is 1870 and the place is Lincoln County in New Mexico territory. A young William H. Bonney is rescued from a possible hanging by John Tunstall, who befriends the youth and makes him part of the family of young guns known as Regulators. This puts Billy in the midst of a territorial dispute between Tunstall and the Santa Fe Ring, led by Lawrence G. Murphy, villainously portrayed by Jack Palance. Another western legend, Pat Garrett, is played by Patrick Wayne, the son, of course, of John Wayne.After the killing of Tunstall by Murphy's henchmen, the Regulators and Billy hit on all <more>
cylinders in extracting revenge for the slaughter of their benefactor. The Regulators are branded as outlaws, and the "legal forces" of Murphy attempt to pare them down to nothing. This leads to a final shootout on the streets of Lincoln, and very few of the original Regulators escape, which leads to the sequel of "Young Guns," appropriately called "Young Guns II." The cast of young and upcoming Hollywood stars include Emilio Estevez as Billy, Kiefer Sutherland, Charlie Sheen, Lou Diamond Phillips, Casey Siemaszko, and Dermot Mulroney.One final note: the DVD includes as part of its special features section a Trivia Track, which flashes western facts and information about the stars or the characters being portrayed on screen without detracting from the viewing of the film. This is worth seeing and owning.
This retelling of the Billy the Kid saga here and in the succeeding film, Young Guns II, is yet another fictionalized account of the doings in Lincoln County, New Mexico 1878-1879. One fine day we may get an accurate picture of the events. Here though several young actors some of whom were labeled the Brat Pack and who were coming up roughly around the same time in the Middle Eighties got an opportunity to play some real life western characters. The names of the characters these guys play are real even though the story is highly fictionalized to the extent that not all of them died during the <more>
period both films show.One reason I do like Young Guns is that it does show what is probably the most realistic portrayal of Billy the Kid. Forget Robert Taylor, Johnny Mack Brown, Paul Newman, when you see Emilio Estevez on the screen you are seeing the real Billy, basically a punk who was skilled enough to back up his brag.Estevez rides with Kiefer Sutherland, Lou Diamond Phillips, Dermot Mulroney, Casey Siemaszko, and brother Charlie Sheen. They are the 'regulators' who ride for John Tunstall the British rancher played here by Terrence Stamp.It was the relationship between Tunstall and his young regulators that villain L.G. Murphy Jack Palance touches on. It's certainly led to speculation that these guys were some kind of a gay harem for Stamp. I certainly am not going to comment one way or the other because we just don't know. What's more cause for the animosity is that old country resentment of the English rulers.What Young Guns essentially does is take the plot of the John Wayne classic Chisum and tell it from the Tunstall/Regulators point of view. Chisum himself is eliminated from the story, though he appears in Young Guns, II played briefly by James Coburn. So if you've seen that, you know what happens.The young guys are great and Stamp and Palance provide a good pair of antagonists. Brian Keith is around for a memorable performance as Buckshot Roberts, a well known bounty hunter of the period.Young Guns is a well done western with good editing at a pace that never drags. It's a modern classic not to be missed.
