Reviews for Bronco Billy

Review - Bronco Billy

It isn't supposed to be taken seriously. It's more of a fable about how people can make themselves into whatever they want to be. But Billy's pathetic attempt to rob a train goes against everything he claims to be. And Sondra Locke's acting and, really, even her presence drags the entire movie down to mediocre.
