Tale of Billy "The Kid" and his gang. They are on the run for Mexico, chased by Pat Barrett, formerly one of Billy's partners.
Young Guns II Brief Review
Lots of star power, charming and entertaining, fun interplay between characters. Plot is lacking. Viggo has only a small part but he looks good in the hat.
