Atom User Reviews for The Kid
It lacked more grit and was disappointed
it was a great movie!!!!!
Surprisingly good movie. Not what you would normally expect from a Billy The Kid story but I liked the angle they took. A slightly different look to the story.
The Kid simultaneously wants to humanize and mythologize its cowboys — and neither effort works.
The result is very pleasing, even for moviegoers who don't pine for the Western's return, and represents a big step forward in the directing career of D'Onofrio.
First-time director D’Onofrio has as an admirable visual style, whether we get medium-long-shot takes or intimate close-ups. This is a good-looking period piece film, percolating with top-tier performances.
