    Harper BarnesSt. Louis Post-Dispatch

    A generally entertaining Western with some striking images, Young Guns II is significantly better than the original Young Guns. [02 Aug 1990, p.4E]

    The screenplay feels unfinished, the direction is ambling, but the performances are interesting. show more

    Jay ScottThe Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    There is a dearth of novelty in Young Guns II, but screenwriter Fusco proceeds as if the material were not familiar and seems to be having a hell of a time exposing it to an audience of teen-agers who wouldn't know John Ford from Ford Fairlane. [03 Aug 1990]
