Entertaining, Super Cinematography .

A little slow.

There are a few wide shots that were just plain natural sights but yet was breathtaking.

This has to be the most boring movie to have graced the screen about the legendary Kid, its slow, badly acted even by the A list Actors, they all seem like they are being paid chocolate buttons as the don,t even try to perform not even Chris Pratt hes awful also.. The Kid himself is beyond dull and could of been any cowboy if you didn't know his role or joined half way in you would have no clue, there is zero character building and you literally couldn't care if he died or not which wasn't the case with the Young Guns version of Billy the Kid where you didn't want him to die.

But it is wasted in a slow, dull direction.

This movie by far is the worst movie I have ever seen since the interview.

Fairly dull western .

The narrative is surprisingly unpredictable as well.

His role as the real life Pat Garrett is yet another great example, and perhaps the sole reason why I left the theater very pleased.

I have to say, after an hour though, I was bored.

Thus it came across to me as rather a slog until its engrossing finale.

Enjoyable musical score composed and performed by Shelby Gaines and Latham Gaines .

The Kid in the lead role, Jake Schur was absolutely stunning as was his sister played by Leila George.

Slow and wandering .

) This film is intriguing, it's suspenseful, surprising, violent, and beautiful.

One of the most boring movies I have ever seen.

Worst movie .

Even though it's too slow at times, The Kid is still a really good western.

Really bored actually!

I normally don't like westerns, but the acting and story telling was riveting.

I had high hopes for this movie, the trailer lead me to believe it was going somewhere, but it was mostly just boring dialogue and had very little to do with the story of Billy the Kid.

Stick to the artsy fartsy trash or the shoot em ups.

A plodding, dull and very unlikely plot doesn't help very much.

I mean, the preformances were really strong and I found the action pretty entertaining.

The film packs thrills , drama , violence , frantic action , crossfire , and being enough entertaining .

A bit of a slow burner that could have been a lot better and a lot worse.

' Ironically, after you've seen about a half-hour of this evocative, R-rated, 100-minute horse opera, you will realize Billy the Kid isn't the title character.

The direction and script are slow and dull.

A nice production full of charming characters , shootouts and intense drama .

Very average and mostly boring movie.

Riveting .

This is an intense and moving Western about a known gunslinger, William Bonney , alias Billy the Kid , the most famous outlaw-gunfighter of the South-west and his particular relationship to a naive little boy .

Billy the Bore.....

Overall, if you look at it in a technical way it's pretty bad but the way I look at it, I found it entertaining and fun.

I thought this was a fairly entertaining western.

Boring .

Also in the beginning the pacing was really bad and slow.

It has quite an engaging story, and it is a little different from the other Westerns because not everyone dies in it.

Sorry to say, but it is boring AF.

Very entertaining .

Minus some excessive plodding, some choppy editing, a vague title, and an all-too-familiar milieu, this "Kid" is still mature enough to be in any gun-swilling room.

Coming of age, the hard way .

Overall, the acting was good but the film had a slow pace and a weak script.

No, this is propaganda, misogyny, and self indulgence on a Hollywood scale.

The film is just so blandly dull and the action what there is any of it is forced and looks fake just like some bad Western play acting at a Theme park.

The only exciting time is when Rio finds his sister who the uncle keeps trapped and leases out to prostitution.. there is just 10 minutes of excitement

Horrible movie, no story line other than cruelty and evil.

This movie is ungodly slow for starters.

unwatchable child abuse in first 2 minutes .

I found this a very enjoyable western, Ethan Hawke made a wonderful Pat Garrett.

A tense and suspenseful Western with a simple story that engages the viewer until the last scene .

All in all a good entertaining Western even though sometimes the violence was a little too much.

The direction does take a slow turn in the middle of the second act.

Boring action .


Enjoyed it, had an atmospheric old school feel to the movieThe Billy the Kid Character was the best thing in it, though Ethan Hawke was also good.

Surely the story of Billy the Kid and Pat Garrett is fascinating enough in it's own right to not require superfluous embroidery?

boring .

It packs an evocative cinematography , though I miss more outdoors and gorgeous landscapes .

Very slow paced Western that seemed to miss many opportunities for dramatic effect.

Worrying about the uncertain consequence, they lie to Garrett, saying that they are looking for their father after being separated from him under some unexpected circumstances.

The script is also dull with the dialogue.

Lived in the desert and the scenery brought back intense memories.

Despite its predictable plot, "The Kid" boasts many virtues.

far too long, and too sentimental to fell in love with.
