Young Guns (1988)
Young Guns Quote: “Reap the whirlwind, Brady. Reap it.” – Billy the Kid
“Regulators, mount up!” Few words inspire more ’80s Western nostalgia, and few movies manage to mix hot young actors with dusty old history the way “Young Guns” did.
This film about the Lincoln County War has it all: Emilio Estevez in a likable role, Keifer Sutherland looking like a dream, Charlie Sheen being sorta normal. The kill count is high, the complexity is low, and through it, all runs a wild vein of ’80s teen pluck.
Big D loved the peyote scene but hated Lou Diamond Phillips’ performance. Ash turned up her nose at the beginning but bought in by the end. And Gene busted out his gunslinging history books like any good Arizonan would.
Get ready for gratuitous slow-motion, questionable escapes, an unnecessary wedding, and Old West sex. Reap the whirlwind!
Plot Summary: “Young Guns” John Tunstall (Terence Stamp), a distinguished British gentleman, employs downtrodden youths to tend his herd on the New Mexican frontier. When Tunstall is gunned down by the crooked Lawrence G. Murphy (Jack Palance), a ragtag group of cowhands — including Doc Scurlock (Kiefer Sutherland), Richard Brewer (Charlie Sheen) and young William “Billy the Kid” Bonney (Emilio Estevez) — ride forth in search of bloody vengeance for the death of their beloved mentor.
