Young Guns II (1990)

Geoff Murphy directs Emilio Estevez, Kiefer Sutherland and Lou Diamond Phillips in this western sequel where the regulators reunite and go on the run again.

Just as scrappy and as spry as the original but with less setting up to do. There’s enough cute little moments to justify returning to the well. It has a neat bookend sequence set in 1950… and unbelievably based on fact. The welcome additions of Christian Slater’s ‘Arkansas Dave’, a grounded Alan Ruck and a Bon Jovi theme song only strengthen the case that this is the rare cash-in sequel that is a slight improvement on the original.
