Plot Summary
Summary The story of western legend Pat Garrett, once was an outlaw but now a lawman... and out to capture his old friend and gunslinger, now nemesis, Billy the Kid.
Los Angeles Times "...Wonderful, a deeply felt elegy to the passing of the Old West surely made in response to the confusion and bitterness of the Vietnam era....The film is rich in visual textures..." 11/25/1999 p.C22
Entertainment Weekly "Peckinpah's most poetic work, providing a languid rhythm for Billy's insouciant fatalism." 01/20/2006 p.54
Ultimate DVD 4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]mportant....It's certainly a brutal piece, and not the most comfortable of movies." 07/01/2006 p.112

ReviewSource TV Guide
Review After director Sam Peckinpah handed in his final cut of PAT GARRETT AND BILLY THE KID, which he considered his finest film, the hierarchy at MGM saw fit to radically reedit it. The approximately 15 minutes cut from the film so drastically altered Peckinpah's structure and pacing that the incensed director tried to get his name removed from the credits. A restored version of Peckinpah's original film was given a very limited rerelease in 1990, but the initial-release version remains the one that most viewers will be able to see and it is a very choppy affair.

ReviewSource Chicago Sun-Times
Review The movie shows signs of having been badly trimmed after Peckinpah finished. It clocks in at less than two hours, which is unusual for big Peckinpah productions; it's all most studios can do to hold him to 140 minutes. Some of the actors listed in the credits never appear, which is another bad sign. I was particularly looking for a favorite of mine, Dub Taylor, who played C.W. Moss's father in "Bonnie and Clyde." Now Dub is not an easy man to miss in a movie, but I couldn't find him.
