Critic Reviews of "Young Guns"Chicago ReaderFebruary 04, 2008
Christopher Cain directed this western from a script by John Fusco, and on the whole seems much more comfortable with the scroungy and scatological dialogue than he does with the action sequences.Time OutJune 24, 2006
Little more than a flawed romp, but energetic and enjoyable, with sterling performances from Sutherland and Estevez.New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Young Guns is best watched in the playful, none-too-serious spirit in which it was made.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
They behave as if our adoration were their birthright.Common Sense MediaApril 18, 2017
Violent '80s Western with teen appeal.Video-Reviewmaster.comFebruary 21, 2008
OK rehash of Old West villains, this time teaming them up in their early days.Empire MagazineFebruary 04, 2008
Good idea to cast the brat pack in a Western but this was badly realised and altogether a bit flat.TV GuideFebruary 04, 2008
Young Guns is simply not a very good movie--western or otherwise. Fusco's script provides little character development and muddies the narrative with some unlikely supporting characters.Combustible CelluloidJune 04, 2007
A cool Western for Gen X.Juicy CerebellumMarch 24, 2005
Far better western than the brat pack deservedSpirituality and PracticeAugust 27, 2004
The film doesn't go far in reviving the Western film genre.Filmcritic.comApril 18, 2003
There are side pleasures to be found in going back and reliving the bad parts of the '80s. A rental of Young Guns lets us know that at least we're out of Reaganomics and the movies it spawned.
