Well above average Billy the Kid tale
29 October 1998 | by buxSee all my reviews

Craig is Pat Garrett, who after killing The Kid is pursued relentlessly by members of the Kid's gang. Forced to hide out in another town, Garrett falls for another woman--Billy's ex-girlfriend! A good cast, scooped from poverty row, keeps things moving in between the shoot-outs.
