"Young Guns II" was a much more
profitable, slightly bigger-budget sequel to the original. It was
released by a bigger distributor and had a much more wider
distribution. In some ways, it was more of a remake than a sequel.
Blended with a smash hit soundtrack, music by
Jon Bon Jovi, the film followed the further adventures of wanted man,
Billy the Kid (Estevez) as he again becomes the most wanted man in the
West. At the same time his former friends have also been rounded up
and targeted for death.
Enter, Pat Garrett (William L.Peterson), one
of Billy's friends and someone he use to ride with. Money is
offered to Garrett, now a sherrif, to take down Billy. The truth has
never been clear.
The sequel featured a stellar cast included
Estevez, Peterson, Lou Diamond Philips, Christian Slater,
