Saddled with a pretentious and senseless screenplay about Billy the Kid, this lame oater drags all parties down with it. Full Review
New York Times
Jan 9, 2018
To the part of Billy the Kid, he brings an air of moronic sensitivity that is very telling, very delinquent and disturbingly typical. Full Review
The Spectator
Jul 12, 2018
A close, inspired study of Ford and Nicholas Ray, and a decisive source of inspiration to Peckinpah, Malick, and Penn himself, who looked at it again and saw Bonnie and Clyde. Full Review
Jun 18, 2008
The character has rarely been portrayed as well as he is by Newman. Full Review
Oct 30, 2007
Rating: B+ -- Boasting a strong turn by Paul Newman as Billy the Kid, this disturbingly psychological, technically innovative deconstructive Western marks the impressive debut of Arthur Penn (Bonnie and Clyde), signaling the beginning of the New American Cinema. Full Review
Nov 17, 2008
Penn's training in theater and live-TV drama (e.g. Playhouse 90) shows; the central performance is rehearsed into an anxious stir, every line matched to an actorly decision, a blocking cue. Full Review
Village Voice
Nov 12, 2008
Paul Newman portrays the cow-country Rebel Without a Cause, Billy the Kid, in a western which is crammed with slambang action. Its characters, however, remain shadowy to the end. Full Review
