Young Guns 2 ★★ 1990 (PG-13)

Brat Pack vehicle neo-Western sequel about Billy the Kid (Estevez) and his gang. Told as an account by Brushy Bill Roberts who, in 1950, claims to be the real Billy the Kid and recounts his continuing adventures with Doc (Sutherland), Chavez (Phillips) and Pat Garrett (Petersen). Not bad for a sequel, thanks mostly to Petersen. 105m/C VHS, DVD . Emilio Estevez, Kiefer Sutherland, Lou Diamond Phillips, Christian Slater, William L. Petersen, Alan Ruck, R.D.
