At least once a year, I'll drag out my DVD of Young Guns and watch it. I owned it on VHS first, then bought the disc. And I watch out for Young Guns 2 to pop up on cable, or rent it after I watch the first. I have seen the two movies several times, DOZENS of times. Yes, it's THAT good. Young Guns, and this sequel, just had all the right chemistry to make magic! Pure magic.! Rare magic. The YG movies were by far Emilio Estevez's greatest work. He never quite rose to the level of fame attained by his bro, Charlie sheen, but for Billy the Kid? Estevez was a perfect fit; the crazy laugh, and lunatic antics, his portrayal of William H Bonnie was instrumental in making the whole thing work. I don't think anyone else could have pulled it off like Estevez. And the same could be said for Lou Diamond Phillips, he had (still has) some success, but also never quite made another splash as big as when he played the "Mexican-Indian" character, Chavez. Kiefer Sutherland did marginally better. He already had a classic under his belt with his first movie Lost Boys, and is now doing well with a popular cable series. But in Young Guns, all of them together, formed a sort of perfect cohesiveness. Also, I believe that Bon Jovi's hit songs (Wanted Dead Or Alive for YG, and Blaze of Glory for YG2) really combined with the production to make the whole thing a perfect finished product.. A SPECIAL sort of greatness. Good enough to be watched over and over.
