Young Guns II

Young Guns II ★★★

Super cheesey yet fun follow-up to the original, Young Guns II was the epitome of the time. Bon Jovi soundtrack, the extended Brat pack casting, and Emilio Estevez in perhaps his most animated and charismatic role. In fact, only a week or so ago, Estevez on his Instagram (@akawilliamhbonney) posted a video using a gun from the film and quoting the film. Clearly it’s one of his favourite roles.

Ultimately, the film lacks any real substance to be taken for anything more than a product of its time but it’s certainly not a bore. Shout out to Alan Silvestri’s wonderful score too.
