entertaining and fun
on June 10, 2012
I must be honest - I hate reading reviews - and hate writing them - but sometimes I just must make a comment. In giving it 4 stars - that is my review. And I certainly understand that everyone may have a different taste in movie watching just as in everything else - and each person is free to make known their opinion of a particular movie. Young Guns is no exception - And we can all see this when the reviews range between 1 and 5. So who do we believe.
What really annoys me is the whining about historical accuracy. I have seen this before in other reviews. This is a MOVIE people. If you are so big on historical accuracy - stop watching movies and tune into the biography channel.
Movies are about entertainment - spending some time with our heads out of the rat race - no matter what genre you happen to be watching. Quite often when I watch a movie with a historical base- it peaks my interest to learn something about what really happened. ( Braveheart and William Wallace being a popular example. Sure it has historical inaccuracies - so what - that is hollywood -- but I was glued to
the screen during the battle scenes - and I did start looking into the real history as did many others.) Anyhow. To you who have never seen YOung Guns -- quit reading reviews and watch it for yourself and just enjoy it for what it is - a good shoot em up western movie with names you know. To you legalistic history majors - lighten up and enjoy The History Channel.
