When Tunstall is killed in an ambush, the Regulators, led by the wild-temper Billy the Kid (Estevez), declared war on the Ring. As their vendetta turns into a bloody rampage, they are branded outlaws, becoming the objects of the largest manhunt in western history.Beginning with the group called the Regulators in this film starting with the well known William H. Bonney (Emilio Estevez) known for his wild temper, "Billy the Kid" led the Regulators in their war against the Santa Fe Ring.

Bonney aka Billy the Kid and the leader of the Lincoln County Regulators. Throughout this film Estevez makes you feel as if you were right there with him, fighting, brawling and shooting up the west. Kiefer Sutherland, Lou Diamond Phillips, Charlie Sheen, Dermot Mulroney and Casey Siemaszko also important roles in this movie in being apart of the Lincoln County Regulators.This film contains many realistic setting, music and clothing choices to make you feel that you are in the late 1870's and the 1880's. The scenes are very well portrayed to be in the old western time era, with everyone having horse-and-buggies, and riding horses through the dirt, dust and endless deserts from town to town. The music choices of music in this film match the story perfectly by playing loud throbbing and bumping music it makes you feel the mood of the scenes and the actors. The clothing and appearance choices in the film were excellent, in showing that the old west wasn't all pretty pictures of perfection, but by showing that their clothes were dusty and worn from riding through the desert and running from the law and many others, riding wherever that might have taken them. Their appearances in the movie were unclean dirty faces, and a lot of them had bad teeth from chewing tobacco all the time.William H. Bonney aka Billy the Kid, perhaps the most legendary figure of the American west was acted out by Emilio Estevez who made the existence of Billy the Kid come to life in this film. Legend has it that he murdered one man for each of his twenty-one years that he lived. And even though the law often caught up with Billy, he always managed to escape until one man declared that he would not rest until Billy the Kid was dead.In conclusion, I absolutely loved and adored this movie I could watch it over and over. I also loved the fact that it was based on a true story about Billy the Kid, his life and how he would not rest until he got revenge on all of the people involved in the murder of his employer John Tunstall.
