The boys shoot, ride, flirt, get high on peyote and revel in enough self-adoring, anachronistic behavior to have all but inveterate teenyboppers swearing vengeance on the film's makers. Full Review

Young Guns is an unexpectedly entertaining film. It puts new twists into the familiar terrain of the western. Full Review

The polite word for his kind of filmmaking is "classical.'' Another word is "trite." Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- There's some tough action sequences and a personable cast - including cameos from Tom Cruise and Brooke Shields - in a movie that (almost) kick-started a fading genre. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- Yet the story is told with too much affection for gunplay and the only thought worth preserving is that these mythic figures of the Old West often were very young men. Big deal. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- ''Young Guns'' is a very Dean-ish, sensitive delinquent melodrama disguised, for no good reason, as a western. Full Review

Product Description:

British ranchowner John Tunstall (Terence Stamp) hires six young men to help him tend and guard his ranch. In addition he also teaches them to read and to be civilized, but soon Tunstall is murdered by a corrupt and ruthless competing cattle rancher. The six 'young guns' go seeking revenge and are erroneously branded outlaws by the law, until they can clear their names. The six young guns are played by Emilio Estevez, Kiefer Sutherland, Lou Diamond Phillips, Charlie Sheen, Dermot Mulroney and Casey Siemaszko.

Plot Synopsis:

Propelled by a rock 'n' roll soundtrack and populated by a handful of hot young Hollywood actors, "Young Guns" is a Western for the MTV generation. Set in 1870s New Mexico, it follows the career of six juvenile delinquents hired to defend the ranch of a British cattle baron. When the rancher is killed by town officials, the boys rebel against the powers-that-be by transforming themselves into a band of outlaws led by none other than Billy the Kid.
